    I love it! Went there on a Monday night, not too crowded. We ordered Octopus Carpaccio and Zucchini Parmigiana to start: DELICIOUS! We followed with a Risotto with Lobster and Truffle and the Gnocchi with Lamb Ragu. An authentic taste, that good that we asked to call the Chef out to congratulate. We didn't have space for dessert, but Antonio (Chef) sent us a fresh tiramisu to share. Thanks to the staff and the Manager Christian, our experience at Il Divo was absolutely delightful! You'll see us back soon!

    Stumbled across Il Divo on my home from work. I was greeted by Christian the general manager and the executive chef Antonio Savino. I started off with the crudo of hamachi with kaluga caviar and summer truffle which was outstanding. Very attentive service , great cocktails. I finished off with the seared salmon asparagus and roasted rainbow potatoes with a phenomenal lemon zest sauce. Will definitely be back and look forward to another great experience. Highly recommend!

    A phenomenal meal from start to finish. Attentive service and wonderful dinner starting with the apps—stuffed zucchini flowers , octopus carpaccio. Divine duck breast and spaghetti Nero. Do not miss the tiramisu either. And then a little birthday dessert complete with wonderful singing. We will definitely return to enjoy again. Thank you!

    The weekday pre-fixe ‘business lunch’ is a wonderful value - 3 courses for $30. Normally their standard pricing is too expensive for the cuisine and the area, but this pre-fixe lunch is a great option, especially in the outdoor space which is lovely and very inviting.

    Il Divo used to be a fine restaurant. where you felt good while dining. After we sat down, it took a very long time for a drink order and a longer time to get our drinks. Our appetizers came in about an hour. Dinner plates were not removed for about 15 minutes after all 4 of us completed our meal. The waiter did not ask if we wanted another drink after he removed the first round- not good for him nor the restaurant's bottom line. There are too many neighborhood and fine dining establishments to return to Il Divo.

    Is there a new chef? The food was horrible. Inedible. Pasta was thick, doughy, not-cooked/through and the filling tasted like baby food. We both sent back full plates of food. In addition, the salad was swimming in dressing — not good. This restaurant used to have great food…what happened?

    Early Easter dinner. Service was so gracious. The food so mouth watering I purposely ate slow. My partner and I switched plates many times to share. I still can’t decide what flavor was best. The smoked mozzarella with zucchini, or lobster with olive and Buffalo burrata.

    Il Divo is wonderful. The room is lovely, decorated with pictures of Rudolph Valentino. The food is creative and wonderful - I can barely choose among the various items they offer. I have eaten there many times and it never disappoints. It is expensive,but worth the money.

    I booked this reservation to celebrate my dads birthday. We were a small group of 6. I would say overall it’s a cute, romantic spot for a date (2 people). The restaurant did not seem equipped for a a larger group over 4. The spacing of tables and room at the table was a bit of a tight fit. This place definitely was smaller then I expected. The food was very good, the drinks were good (god variety of cocktails) and I will say that the manager was very attentive to those who were dining in.
