Warm and friendly service. Excellent meals. I'm was especially impressed by our server asking if we had any food allergies. How thoughtful! Will definitely return.

Diving never disappoints. Great local food & quirky friendly service. Ambiance isn’t quite as good as the food, but that’s only because of the quality of the meal is hard to match.

In the past we have always given them a good rating but not this time. Our reservation was for 7:00P and we had to wait for 1/2 hour standing up by the bar no were to sit and enjoy our cocktail.
2 ordered the ribeye steak and it was tough. I ordered the Chicken with Lemon and Rosemary and it had no flavor. The chard was not good either. We were celebrating an Anniversary and birthday and were very disappointed.

Great neighborhood spot for very fresh and tasty Italian cuisine. We enjoyed a leisurely meal and really enjoyed the great service and interactions with the waiter and host. Divino is a wonderful spot for a family gathering or casual night out in lovely Belmont!

I took my wife to dinner for her Birthday. Divino was recommended by a friend so we thought we would give it a try. The overall experience was outstanding. Starting from parking (they have space behind the restaurant) to being seated immediately, and the prompt service, everything was great. I cannot say enough about our waiter (Giuseppi). He was friendly and efficient, did not rush us and made us feel at home. The food was excellent. I had the Patrol Sole and my wife had the Pistachio Crusted Pork Chop and we shared a Cesar Salad. The portions are generous and the prices are competitive with other restaurants where we have dined. The restaurant is relatively quiet allowing us to have a conversation with a sense of privacy. We will be back soon.

Excellent food as usual! Great Caesar salad. The pistachio encrusted pork chop was cooked to perfection and delicious! The cannoli was a little too crunchy but still good. I will be back.

The menu has a limited number of choices, but a variety of items, all fresh. I've been to Divinos several times and I usually order their veal scallopini, which is awesome. The gnocchi is also awesome. The cocktails are generous proportions and well made.

Divino is a neighborhood gem. I can almost always get a table there when I want to, and the food
is really excellent. They have a nice wine list. It is small, but the wines are always carefully chosen,
and well priced--Better priced than most of the other Italian restaurants in the area. I've eaten
at Divino many times, and I have never been disappointed. An excellent choice for a regular
evening meal, or a special event.

Our experience was okay. 6 years ago when we celebrated at this restaurant on valentine day it was very different. They had more gluten free options for all three courses. They gave out roses, played soft music. It was just different and disappointing.

The Fix Prix menu had some entrees that contained dairy, I asked the owner if his regular menu was available, it wasn't, but he said my entrees would be prepared lactose free. Wonderful, I appreciate his attention to every detail in making sure I enjoyed a memorable meal.
Divino is one of our favorite restaurants, always an excellent meal.

Excellent meals for both the wife & me. The cannoli was the best we've had in the Bay Area, and the Long Island Ice Tea was very strong (as they should be but rarely are), not sweet, and a bargain. The calamari appetizer was delicious but a bit short on calamari. Other than that, no complaints. Will return for another wonderful dining experience.
