Great ambience, knowledgeable and lovely wait staff and beautifully executed menu. Hostess and management are a bit stuffy and what you would expect from the UES stereotype.

I was looking forward to trying this restaurant, as it is new and in my neighborhood. The food was delicious, the noise level was definitely bearable, and the staff were perfect.
Christian, who I think is the manager was most gracious and helpful. I will go back very soon!

Being in the restaurant business { louandco.net }, I am not easily impressed, but I read about Il Divo and it sounded intriguing. In a town where restaurants open and close as fast as Democrats announce a new candidate, I called for a Friday reservation. Booked solid. Called again during the month, same story. What the hell was it about this new place? Finally, I got in. The space is beautiful. No attention to detail was spared. The light, the lighting, the glassware, the music, the menu and the staff are exceptional. Very European. No evidence of a red sauce joint here. My thanks to Christian, the gracious maitre d. This wasn't just another dinner. This was an experience.

Great addition to the area. Christian the manager went around introducing himself and making sure everything was good and our waiter Ivan was so knowledgeable and nice. The entire staff was amazing. The food was delicious. We definitely will be back.

Food is fine- like every other upscale Italian place in the city- 30% more expensive than most places— which is fine if you don’t care about money. OK interior. Noisy. For the same price you could go to Sette Mezzo or San Ambroeus which have better fare, or Serafina which is much cheaper, a bit loud, and has food that, like Il Divo, reliably just “fine”.

The menu was very limited and what did get to the table was cold (when it should have been hot) and not very good. Even the pizza was bad. We were a party of 4 and we all had the same reaction.

The place itself was very nice and the staff was great but my ravioli had fish bones in it. They brought me a lobster dish instead which also had shell in it and I just gave up and wanted to leave. They were very apologetic but I still ended up having to pay about $200 for not a very good meal. It was disappointing because I love il Mulino I thought this would be good too.

We loved the food and wine, especially the potato and mascarpone puree side dish. Such a welcome addition to the neighborhood!

Went tonight for a birthday dinner, and the staff couldn’t have been better. They greeted us with a “happy birthday “ when we entered and made us feel at home. The food was spectacular. We had the Bolognese and the risotto and both were delicious. Then we had the almond dessert which was addicting to say the least. Christian, the manager checked on us after every course, and really took care of us the entire evening. Everything was as we hoped, delectable, friendly, delicious and just a fun new experience. Definitely get the old fashioned as a drink.
Will definitely come back soon.

Lovely place, upscale. Be prepared to spend money. Portions were a bit small. A glass of wine was a quarter filled up glass. Food was very good....not fantastic. Appetizers way too expensive for this neighborhood. Eggplant parmesan was too oily. At the bottom of dish, instead of red sauce, you saw oil. But basically, food was very good, portions small and a bit to expensive .

It was date night at Il Divo and it was awesome. The 20 Egg pasta was excellent. Lamb chops were divine. Cocktails were fantastic. Not the least expensive option on Second Avenue (by far!), but worth it.

Delighted to have this place in the neighborhood. The menu was interesting and appealing, and the food was excellent. Service was friendly though a little rough around the edges. Food arrived before wine, for example.

Just barely opened. Service excellent, food excellent. Will only get better when the liquor license is issued. Soon I hope. Very pretty room also. Wishing them good luck.
