    The front and the back of the house shine in this cozy Italian restaurant located at East 70th and 2nd street. The food and service keeps us coming back time after time and we have never been disappointed. I would highly recommend Il Divo.

    First time at this gorgeous restaurant on the upper east side. The atmosphere - as well as decor - was a definite 10! The food was 10 +.....you must experience this restaurant's food ....impeccable to sublime. I felt like I was in Italy on the riviera....the photos of Rudolph Valentino just add to the overhaul glamour. The host was extremely welcoming, and the service excellent! We can't wait to come back.

    Loved the ambience and decor. Well light and beautiful interiors. Service was great. Perhaps the server could have been more well versed with the menu. The food wasn’t spectacular, I wasn’t floored with the egg preparations. They were so-so. But the menu is priced fairly and appropriately.

    This is our second time visiting, and unfortunately it just wasn’t the same. The food went from being Michelin note-worthy, to just fine and yet the prices do not reflect that. The servers are very nice and seem to be trying , though they tended to stand around or talk amongst each other more than anything else. Still a lovely restaurant, aesthetically, just now I’d rank it one of many just “fine” Italian neighborhood restaurants, rather than a true destination worth seeking out.

    The food and service at Il Divo is phenomenal. The Il Divo Golden Martini is my favorite, my friend and I had an amazing meal here last night. The ambiance is gorgeous, the service impeccable, and the food absolutely delicious. Chef Antonio is from Naples, his food is very delicious. The GM Cristian really friendly and caring person working at really professional level. Had a great time here. Highly recommend this restaurant.

    The overall experience was phenomenal. I have to start with the service; from the entrance everyone is very welcoming. The manager sat us right away, the bartender was very helpful by recommending the best wine to pair with our food and the server was on top of everything. The ambiance is divine; the decor is exquisite and everything is very clean. The music has the perfect volume, so you could actually have a great conversation with your date. Also, the music they play is great, very elegant. Overall, everything was fantastic. Definitely will be back!

    Dined here a month or so ago for the first time, and had a really nice meal. This time, two of the 3 entrees we ordered on the menu were out (this is 7:00 on a Wednesday, no duck breast or branzino). The endive and radicchio salad had no walnuts or Roquefort, had to ask for Roquefort. The linguine with clams was bland and not hot, and the Dover sole tasted like it was cooked in bacon. Terrible. Unfortunately I wanted to LOVE this restaurant but we will not be back.

    The service was good and our waiter very nice, the restaurant is also cute, but the food was not good. I have *never* sent a dish back but sent my duck back it was so tough and bland. The manager said it was because the kitchen recommended rare, and I ordered it medium. That recommendation was not communicated when ordering, but it is beside the point. The duck was plainly bad. My partners dish wasn’t good either, but he at least ate it. Perhaps it was just an off night for the kitchen, we haven’t been here before and I’ll give the benefit of the doubt, but we will not be back.

    In a city filled with very good Italian restaurants, this restaurant warrants a return for the service alone - the waitstaff were truly top-notch: lovely and helpful but never intrusive, and just made what was admittedly a great meal, into something to remember.

    We were two couples and got lucky with the weather, we sat outside. The service was very good, with Alexa, our doting waitress. The food was standard fare and all right, nothing particular to write about. The bill was on the highish side but we enjoyed the evening. I am not sure if I will run back to the place in the early future... maybe in a few months.
