    One of the best Italian restaurants in Madison! This small restaurant really shines by offering spectacular food, drinks and service. Waitstaff is friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. The owner visits each table to share the nightly specials—what a treat to talk with him about the food he clearly is passionate about. The meatballs are EXCELLENT—do not visit without trying them!! Nice selection of Italian wines.

    Three of us had an outstanding evening. Swordfish special was outstanding. Two of us had the traditional style. I am a big fan of swordfish. D"Vino's sword fish is the best I have ever had. Better than Sardine and Cento, both of which serve wonderful swordfish.

    Very enjoyable birthday dinner! Loved that they could accommodate my gluten free eating - had more options than most places, especially for an Italian restaurant. A variety of gf pastas instead of the typical rotini substitution. Nice selection of gf crackers for the antipasto plate. Ended up with the prix fixe deal because the waitress said that we basically ordered that anyway, and they allowed me to sub in something gf for the dessert. The owner came and talked to us several times, and all waitstaff were very friendly. Nice portions (not too much or too little), nice outdoor dining space. So glad we chose D'Vino for our night out!

    I absolutely LOVE this place. This is the second time I had the opportunity to go and it was just as enjoyable as the first time! I brought my family here last year and we stayed so long after closing we talked to the owner! Last night we went out with friends and again it was the perfect spot to go!

    We ate outside so it was louder. The service was slow and didn’t know much about wine or the specials. Service was slow but not super slow. The food was outstanding however and owner was friendly. Overall, we would recommend it and would go back.

    It's a good restraunt and I enjoyed eating there. However, the food was bland and the pasta sauce tasted similar to premade sauces sold to restraunts. It could be the cheffs cooking style. It could, also, be that I have spent enough time in Italy that I expect a freasher taste. The staff and service was excelent.

    We loved our dining experience. Our prefix meal included an antipasto board with assorted meats, cheeses, olives, breads, etc. It was plentiful and delicious. Our entree, Eggplant Parmigiana was a delicate stack of tender eggplant, mozzarella and ricotta cheese nestled in a pool of flavorful marinara sauce, with a side of saucy penne. My husband raved about his grilled swordfish dinner and our other guest enjoyed his shrimp scampi. Our desserts included a bowlful of delicate zeppoli and a plate of small cannoli. All in all the food was delicious, the atmosphere cozy and the servers were friendly and attentive.

    We meet to D’Vino to have octopus. It was on the menu. It wasn’t available. We ordered an appetizer and they wouldn’t bring us silverware or napkins after asking 2x. We had a babysitter and this was incredibly disappointing. Wanted to like it, but not for us! The chef was very nice. Apologized, but still sad after we had gotten a babysitter.

    We really like the mellow ambiance in D'Vino. The design of the restaurant interior is unique, honoring the owner's Italian family heritage. It is warm and inviting and comfortable. The food is based on Sicilian family recipes with the owner's updated touches. Everything is cooked to order with daily specials augmenting the current menu. The service is friendly and attentive. Give D'Vino a try: you'll be back!

    Beautiful evening to sit outside for a later evening meal at D'Vino. We ordered and thoroughly enjoyed a red wine from Puglia. Because we were not starving we shared the Eggplant Parmesean. It was cooked to perfection! We also shared a dessert a creamy delicious Tiramisu. Next time, we will dine earlier and I will order my own entre. Too good to share.

    There were a handful of other tables, but overall it was less than half full while we were there. We had to wait awhile to get menus, drinks and to order. The menu they had was about half of what they have posted online. We ordered and had been waiting awhile before they came out to tell us they were all out of chicken, which was about half of their already small menu. 4 of the 5 of us ordered something else. Almost two hours later our food finally came out. I ended up ordering the more expensive steak over the chicken dish I wanted, I ordered it medium and it came out just under well done. My friend had switched from the tortellini with chicken to the tortellini with shrimp, which came out under cooked, with only 2 shrimp, and a twig from an herb with no herbs on it. One of my other friends got a steak with a side of pasta that was undercooked. 4 out of 5 of us had been served when they came over to check on how our food was. My friend had to remind them she was still waiting on her food. They said they’d hurry and make her meal, and about 5 minutes later they came out with some under cooked tortellini. We let them know about our issues but said we’d eat it anyway cause of how hungry we were after the long wait. They ended up taking off two drinks and one meal for the table. The bill came out and was still $200 and a couple of the items on the bill cost more than what was on their menu. When we were clearly upset, they sent the manager over. We let him know what had all happened and we got a lot of excuses about being super busy and understaffed. He said the twig was thyme that the tomatoes are cooked with, but didn’t have an answer when my friend said there weren’t any tomatoes in his dish. When we pointed out the price discrepancy, he said they hadn’t had a chance to update the prices on the menu. The only saving grace is that the manager comped our food and we only had to pay for our drinks. Overall it was a bad experience and we won’t be coming back.
