Classy option in Calgary

I had an early dinner with 3 colleagues at Divino in June. Weather was good and we were able to sit on the terrace. I had the mussels and frites, which were excellent. Service was very attentive and lots of choices on the menu.

The wine and beer selection is great. Classy place. Love the mussels and frites and the smore dessert is a definite must! Get a table outside in the summer for some great people watching!

This is my favourite stop anytime I visit Calgary. The space is has a great vibe and always smells amazing. This trip, we only had time to stop for drinks and snacks and it didn't disappoint. They have a very nice wine list and the wait staff is very knowledgable and offers great suggestions. We had our standard "tempura green... More

My wife and I were in Calgary for a day before heading up to Banff. We were walking down Stephen Avenue Mall and stopped in Divino for a bite as a random choice. Our decision was made by the door handles on their front door. We have the same on our kitchen cabinets. I ordered the Spaghettini with clams, sausage... More

Divino is an excellent choice if you find yourself visiting downtown Calgary, or you want to go out for a great dinner! The service is excellent and professional. The atmosphere casual, yet refined.

Saw this place while trying to decide where to eat, It was different from the others. Everything didn't come with fries. It was a nice change. The staff were knowledgeable. The food was great, A very pleasant evening.

We have there on 2 occasions. The first time we arrived early and had a window seat.

Pleasant bistro decor in an easily accessible downtown environment. Solid & helpful wait staff. Smallish portions, no bread, no salad, too many wine choices by the glass were high priced. In general, overpriced for the area.

After travelling around America for three weeks enduring bad food and very rushed dinning. It was so lovely to relax in a restaurant and enjoy the wine and the food in lovely surroundings and the food was amazing, best meal we've had in a very long time. Wish we were here longer so we could go back.

Excellent wine list, one of top 300 in the world! Food is excellent and always updated, innovative specials and a selection of cheeses better than most. Certainly worthwhile.
