Loved Armando at the bar. Made good cocktails & was very friendly.
We had our favorite pastas (Linguine/clams & Sedinini (sp) with sausage, plus Caesar Salad & the great homemade bread).
We will be back soon!

I haven't been here in a couple of years and based on the quality of the experience, I shouldn't have waited so long! Waiter Fabio was fantastic ...

We recently had an excellent meal at Divino Ristorante. It was soon after the restaurants re-opened. Food, service and cocktails were all excellent. Thus, making our much anticipated outing an even better experience.

Came to celebrate wife’s birthday. Our dining experience was first rate from arrival to departure. Food was exceptional and tasty. The lasagna was the best I ever had in a restaurant. The owner was very accommodating with request for wife’s birthday dessert. We will be back. Thanks

Started with some wine. Entrees were great...ravioli, pappardelle, and sedanini. The dessert was a 3 way split of the hot apple tart...delicious. Service was impeccable and attentive.

Our waiter & server are very friendly & accommodating. Our food was delicious.
But, one waiter on the other tables talks very loud & most of the time, he is not wearing his mask. It’s very uncomfortable & unhealthy the way he handles himself to customers & others around him. He also walks around very close to our table & other tables without covering his mouth with mask. His mask was down to his jaw 90 percent times.

Nice little local restaurant in Belmont. Food is great, but there service is excellent! I was here recently with a friend for a late lunch, and we ended up staying until 3 pm. We were the only ones in the restaurant and the staff was extremely patient and let us hang out. Never tried to rush us, in fact were super super friendly and chill about it.

Divino is one of the best Italian restaurants I've ever eaten at. Their food is absolutely delicious and their service is consistently outstanding. Customers are treated as royalty and the dining staff truly provide first class service. Go for the food! Go for the service! Go for the excellent wine selection! If you'd like a romantic restaurant that excels in their food and service, go to Divino! You won't be disappointed!

Surprise! Prices higher on their Valentine's menu. Not happy. Food good, but ordered Osso Buco, which did mention twas actually pork shank. Server replied to my thinking that Osso Buco is normally veal; with a tale about it being usually beef. :-) I said this is pork, and he looked at the menu and changed his story to "bone with a hole".
Food was good, service was fine. Bad taste prices escalated without mention when reservation made. And odd staff is not aware of menu details, while said details are incorrectly titled.
Out.

We enjoy going to Divino's. The owner & his staff speak Italian, reminding me of growing up in an Italian household. Mateo, the bartender, was wonderful, so we ate at the bar with him. He made tasty cocktails & made sure our dinners were served when we wanted them. Salads & pastas (ravioli & rigatoni with sausage) were great. We will be back. Warm bread was good also.
