Divino - Brentwood
The intimate family setting combined with the professional service just add to the fact that DIVINO is a little culinary diamond in the rough.
My new favorite for Italian food in LA...the 40 minute drive from Glendale wouldn't keep me from coming again!
Sensational! A must visit.
The owner, his wife and the staff that served us could not be more charming, considerate, kind and authentic. You can always tell when someone loves what they do; it just shows.
Wish I had discovered this gem sooner.
Thank you for an outstanding evening with exceptional food.
Always excellent. Intimate atmosphere, cordial and professional staff, delicious food.
Everything was good about Divino except one- the food. Tried three different entrees - all were devoid of taste. Furthermore, all of the seafood tasted frozen.
Cute place. Food was good. Wines by the glass were small and overpriced. Service was horrible! Waiters were inattentive, and left us sitting for long periods (at 1/2 hour intervals) before they came back around to check if we needed anything. Had to flag them down for water, check, etc.. On top of which, they were all quite snobby! Would not recommend this place if you want to relax, enjoy your friends, the food, and know you’ll be taken care of. Go somewhere who knows what good customer service looks like and is happy to have you!!!
Wonderful food and nice people
Terrible experiencr. Our waitress was incredibly rude to us. When she brought my salad with bell peppers, I explained kindly that I am very allergic and can’t have bell
Peppers. (It wasn’t listed on the menu.) I had a feeling she just picked them off but I decided (naively) to just go with it. I am now so sick and it will take me at least five days to recover.
This restaurant is always excellent. Goran and his staff do a great job.
A Brentwood Gem...I don’t live anywhere near this place but would make the trip again!
a gem! wonderful service...fine food. goran...the owner welcomes
each diner with genuine warmth. there was no way to improve on
our meal...the pasta..perfect. the bronzino, a gift from the sea...grilled
to perfection. and the ram’s gate chardonnay also gets five stars...even
more if five wasn’t the maximum rating.
There is just one word for this restaurant: DIVINE! It is a small and cozy Italian restaurant in one of the most charming places in Brentwood--the old "Brentwood Circle" group of shops and restaurants, that has been there since the 1940s. The Italian menu is delicious and adventurous, and very authentic. We loved our dinner and will recommend to friends!
Excellent service and live the food. Cooked to perfection.
Love meeting my family there. Excellent food and service.
This is a neighborhood gem and we have had only great experiences here. Small, quiet, able to have a conversation here, which is becoming rare. Goran, the host/owner, is a wonderful presence overseeing the room and guests. If I had one suggestion, it would be to put another salad on the antipasti menu for those of us looking for a lighter, fresh started. Would love it if they had a Caesar. They used to have a spinach salad that was lovely.
Fantastic food and service top to bottom 5/5
The food is good and with consistent quality. The service is very good and friendly. It is a neighborhood gem!
I love this place! It's got a local neighborhood feel with a terrific menu and great ambiance. Wonderful for casual outside get together in summer.
Charged us for something we didn't order.
Food was OK.
Outstanding restaurant for all occasions. Great food and service!
We walked in and were immediately greeted by name (Thanks to OpenTable). We felt like returning family. We ordered Burrata with Tomatoes.. It was heavenly. The tomatoes were so fresh and tasty. Then we had white fish and gnocchi. Mouth watering. Beautifully served by our waiter Goren, and then the surprise when the owner Goren came out in a chef's uniform. As he said, he needs to know all that's going on to make sure everything is perfect and so it was. We've been coming here for years, and although it is not as convenient as it used to be, we still think it's worth the trip. Best of all my meal worked on Weight Watchers.
Excellent better than neighborhood place. High quality food, vegetable risotto, gluten free penne bolognese, and great service
One of the best gems in town! The pasta and service is divine!
Beet salad starter good, not great . Seafood soup was very good, but not especially large. Veal cooked to European standard, a bit gamey and rare on inside. Coffee excellent. European waiters reserved but helpful, local under-staff people very, very nice! Ambiance fair to good, a little noisy. Overall very good restaurant but somewhat difficult and perhaps overpriced for what it is.

Delicious food. Excellent experience!
Everything was wonderful. Very special for Mother's Day. Will return again
Very nice place, good location, nice people, perfect for a nice dinner with friends.
An absolute gem in Brentwood! Charming and cozy with attentive service. Craft gin & tonic and an appetizer of burrata, peppers and arugula. Rib-eye tagliata and tagliatelle with monk fish ragu, pine nuts, fresh dill & cherry tomatoes for the main course. Mangia!
Reliably good food and atmosphere. The specials really are special, and the staff is professional. I'll be back.
Divino reliably presents superb dishes and wines in a quiet, elegant atmosphere. You can have a conversation without yelling. The meal rolls out without haste (unless you request speed). The service is attentive; the wine pairings expert. Always ask the Somm for advice—there’s often additions off the list worth a try. The specials deserve your special attention. A bonus: they excel for carnivores, fish-eaters, and vegetarians alike.
Great service, lovely decor, we were warmly greeted. Delicious shrimp salad and bolognese pasta. Most enjoyable.
We have always enjoyed this neighborhood restaurant, but this time - NO!
The prices had jumped significantly and the food was not as good.
It will be while before we give it another try.
Outstanding....Reliable....been going to Divino's for over ten years. Goran always takes care of us. Feels like home....
Just great in every way !!! 5 star service ! Great fresh food. High class restaurant with rustic feel of cozy cousine.
As always great service and great food in a charming environment
Outstanding in every way. Delicious food. Warm, relaxed ambience. Impeccable service. Far outclasses most of the "upscale" Italian restaurants on the West Side.
Phenomenal dinner! The special homemade pasta with veal was so delicious I dreamt about it!!
