We have never eaten at Divino Wine & Dine but saw it on OpenTable so thought we'd give it a try. The food was delicious and the atmosphere is lovely (small restaurant with a lot of charm). Our server, Krissa, was outstanding. She was great about highlighting items on the menu and helping us figure out a wonderful combination for our dinner. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a great Italian dinner!

After having eaten at Divino's several times, I can see that the service in great, and the food even better. They are attentive, but not intrusive, and serve absolutely delicious food.

My friends and I like to dine at Divino before we go to a movie down the street at The Oriental Theater. Early in the evening you don't necessarily need a reservation, but you do later, say, after six, because this restaurant and bar are very popular, and with good reason.

My favorite dish is the Chicken Marsala. Sometimes I like to share a pizza. The dinners come with soup or salad, terrific Italian bread, and the portions were big enough that all four of us women last week took home half of our entrees. Greg, our super waiter, boxed those up for us in the back, rather than making us do it at the table. I hate that. My favorite wine is the red blend; and I have never tired of the warm, inviting atmosphere.

One warning: If you arrive later in the evening, with or without a reservation, you may have to stand around near the front door which is right inside the bar. You see, folks like to linger here, so gauging how long before a table turns over must be challenging.

Nestled on a quiet side street in the east side, family owed Divino's serves the best pizza and eggplant in town. Perfect before or after a movie at the Oriental, great with a group. Best thing is they take reservations.

Lots of garlic so be warned, or enticed. Waiter didn't mention the boar special which I probably would've gone with, or offer a dessert menu. Otherwise he was prompt and polite. Food was tasty but not enough to bring us back, although it was a bargain: 4 drinks, 2 glasses of wine, 3 apps, 2 & 1/2 entees (they offer 1/2 portions w/out salad) for $110 plus tip.

Our Valentine's dinner was perfect at Divino. Our waiter recommended an excellent wine and also helped us sort out our dinner selections -- all of our entrees arrived hot and were delicious.

everything from the housemade appetizers to the entrees were fantastic! We left eating more than we should because every item looked too good not to try. The mozzarella sticks were extra good! Will be back!

Nice little Italian restaurant where everybody seemed to know everybody else. The waiters and waitresses took special interests in knowing and remembering customers names and made you feel right at home. The food and wine select was not as large as expected but fit the style and feel of the restaurant perfectly. The food and wine itself was also very delicious!

Once again Davino pulls through. Great food and great service. Loved the Sicilian steak I had. Pedicels cooked. I would have liked the option of a different pasta or maybe even a rustic potato or garlic/parm mashed. The salads were great, eggplant outstanding and the tiramisu some of the best in milwaukee. Bravo

I have been going here for years, when it was under previous ownership. It closed for awhile then reopenned with a similar menu. I have never had a bad meal here. The staff and owners are friendly and accommodating, the food is very good and reasonably priced and the setting is laid back and comfortable. It does get a little noisy but it is better to be an a restuarant with people having fun than to be sitting alone in a quiet restaurant.

Divino was a nice surprise. We probably would never have stumbled across it had it not been for open table and we are glad we did. The food was delicious, very homey, and the service was excellent as other reviewers have also noted. Great dining experience!

I came here with a "local" a couple of weeks back for the Carbonara (at her request) . . . . and it was most excellent, so I brought someone new to the neighborhood this time (we East Siders delight in 'discovering' places like this).
We had the best waitress in Milwaukee . . . period. As far as the wine and menu are concerned they were both great. We shared an entre of Spedini and Eggplant. I have found no better Italian cousine anywhere in the City . . . . .and the City is supposedly full of excellent Italian restaurants.

Oh, and one must experience the decor . . .. . can't be explained adequately but it will make you look around in wonder. Definitely on my list of go to places now.

We've dined at Divino and it's predecessor, Palermo Villa, for many years. Divino has been redecorated nicely, but has similar menu to Palermo, with all the Italian favorites. Pizza is a star here but can't go wrong with the pastas either. Friendly service, a neighborhood favorite!

Everything was great, but it seems Joseph was in hurry to get us out of the
restaurant fast and didn't ask how our food was or bring us more coffee
with out been asked. I know that sometimes someone has a bad day just
hope that when we come back he will be in a better mood.
Thanks
