Very nice atmosphere. The food is alittle on the pricey side, but the food is delicious. Gives you an experience to try something different. Definitely a must try, and it is a restaurant I will be visiting again.

I went here to celebrate Valentine's Day with my girlfriend and it was a great experience. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. The food tasted fresh and was just great all around.

Valentine’s. Sebastian is the bartender. Mike was our waiter. We were well attended by all and not rushed, though they were busy and steady. Good was well prepared and generous. Will be returning soon.

One order for fish was so salty could not eat so sent back. Second order was rack of lamb order medium rare with garlic mashed potatoes. Lamb was more than well done and potatoes had so much garlic I could not eat. Did not complain about lamb entree but will take a lot of thought before I try this restaurant again.

My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary. It was really nice and food was excellent. It was quiet and staff was friendly. Wish it would have been a little dimmer in the lighting and maybe some Italian music in the background.

The food was amazing. We had the charicture plate, veal chop and spaghetti and meatballs with bologness sauce. The desesert and wine were wonderful. Our server Marcus was awesome and knowledgeable about the menu.

Very tasty food...a pleasant surprise in a town like Columbia which has not always been known to be a great place for interesting restaurants. The one bummer was that the credit card connection went down and I could not use a card to pay for my meal. Fortunately I had cash. I am sure it was a fluke.

This was our first time at Divino even though I’m often in Columbia for business. We will return. The food was great. I had the veal saltimbocca, my wife had the filet, and my son had the lamb chop - all were prepared perfectly. I also enjoyed the stuffed peppers appetizer. Our waitress was charming. The lighting could be dimmed a little. Definitely worth trying.

Food was great but not necessarily worth the cost. Paid 120 (tip included) for 2 person date. Wine list was extensive, service was slightly below excellent, environment was very conducive for personal conversations.

My date and I were celebrating her birthday, and this dinner and overall experience made it special. The food was delicious, the service was good and friendly, and the intimate dining room provided the perfect ambiance for savoring our meal and engaging in quiet conversation. It's been awhile since I'd eaten at Ristorante Divino, but after this I will definitely be going back more often.
