Italian
Soft-green walls, black-and-white photos and high ceilings illuminate the affluent crowd for lunch and dinner.
The intimate family setting combined with the professional service just add to the fact that DIVINO is a little culinary diamond in the rough.

Divino has been a mainstay of my dining experience in Los Angeles for the past 20 years. The food prep consistently is excellent, with hallmarks of each dish being freshness, simplicity, and the ability to integrate the various flavors into something delicious. Moreover, the staff are attentive, polite, and unobtrusive. Additionally, the pricing seems reasonable given the quality of the food.
So, in summary, I like and recommend Divino to my fellow gourmets

It has been a few years since we were at Divino and I find myself asking, why have we not returned sooner? We met Goran many years ago when he started as a waiter and always found him to be quite hospitable and then eventually followed him to when he opened Divino, and we enjoyed everything about his restaurant. Last night was no exception. The service was warm, attentive and we were well cared for. The food quality, taste and presentation was top quality. So, I will answer my own question, and I see us returning often. It was a very pleasant experience and we enjoyed our evening. It has been especially tough on restaurants through “the Pandemic” and especially on restaurants with limited outdoor dining and we only hope that Divino will increase the number of diners and that they can return to former glory days as it is well deserved.

The beat Italian restaurant in town. Goran is so welcoming, the staff is caring and committed to making guests feel special. The spaghetti Ragu is out of this world. Can’t go wrong with the delicious gnocchi. All specials are fantastic! Fabulous wine list too.

How I have missed Divino all these years is remarkable since I was frequently at Brentwood Bar and Grill right around the corner. This is a family run establishment that is run with love and care. The staff is well trained. The food is excellent--very Italian which you don't find often in LA. I wish the place were larger because with the pandemic, you will probably have to dine outside, which is OK because the street is very quiet.

Everything we ordered was delicious. Portion size ideal - not too big and not too small. A good neighborhood spot, but a little pricey.

An absolute gem. My husband and I have been coming here for 20 years and it never disappoints. Goran and the welcoming staff are amazing. Excellent food and the team makes you feel so at home. After moving away for nearly 10 years they welcomed us back with open arms as a table of four. It’s now become our kids favorite spot.

My fiance and i have been going there weekly and intend on making a tradition. Food is top shelf, fresh burrata, the branzino is outstanding, they split entrees so easy to share and that leaves room for a pasta dish between us. Great gluten free options and substitutions even flour free lemon caper sauce for the fish which is delicious.

Friendly and professional staff, we look forward to it every week.

The food was incredible. We had three specials. The burrata appetizer and 2 pasta specials including caci e pepe which was the best I’ve had and it’s my favorite Italian dish. It doesn’t get better than this.

We sat outside and though it is a busy parking lot, it was a lovely evening. The food was superb and the serving size just right. The waiter was engaging and the service was excellent. Being in a parking lot was the only negative. Everything else was A plus!

Like always food was delicious , but we opted to sit inside and felt they weren’t as attentive as they were to people outside. Could have been they were a little understaffed. I would still recommend the restaurant. It’s hard getting up and running again after Covid.

I’m thrilled to have finally found a local gem of a restaurant that I would go back to repeatedly. Great food, excellent service, warm caring staff, owners who are committed to providing a top notch dining experience to their guests, and did. I say GREAT food? Some of my faves are the veal Ossobuco, the Gnocchi, and the GF Penne Bolognese. Can’t go wrong with any of the other dishes either. I LOVE Divino!!!

Dined twice over two months and both occasions were great. We had guests from out of town both times and Divino made for a relaxing evening with a wonderful neighborhood feeling. Service was excellent both times and although we had different dishes each time, they were all nicely done. Not sure that we hit on "the" favorite that I know I want for next time but I know we will be back and look forward to continuing through the menu. Also thoroughly enjoyed eating outside, which was much more relaxing than I remember from times inside before the pandemic.
