Really good food and extensive wine selection

There's many restaurants surrounding Divino, all with similar layout: long and skinny. Divino stood out though, their extensive wine list and reasonable prices seem to make it the ideal place to meet after work for a wind down and some decent food.

Lovely atmosphere, great food, great wine, great service. I've been here twice, and both times were amazing experiences. What more can I say? I love this place and I will definitely be coming back.

I cannot believe I haven't reviewed Divino yet. We love it here. Friends, Family, Romantic Date Night, Birthday Parties (mine was there in December) -- the sommelier is OUTSTANDING -- you must order the green beans. Do it! Now!

The location is vey close to the Arts Commons (formerly known as the EPCOR Centre) so it's handy for a dinner before a concert. The food is high end and the service very good. The server knew the menu well and explained what to expect from each course offered to help with the selection. The wine list is quite good... More

My husband and I went out for a rare night out and chose this place because of previous good reviews. We weren't disappointed and the reviews certainly validate Trip Advisor! The restaurant is fairly intimate and nicely decorated - not too plain and charmless but still has a nice modern feel (with some exposed brickwork which alludes to Calgary's history).... More

Firstly I am a wine and cheese addict so this was the place for me. Great selection of cheeses from local to far flung. Great wine selection as well. Nice servings of cheese from 3-5 cheeses from a list of approx 20. Also menu for other meals but did not bother to look as only interest was cheese and wine.... More

We stopped in for supper before the hockey game. Service was very good. We had wine and cheese prior to supper and it was very good. I had the buffalo tartar and lamb. The tartar was tasty and it was prepared very well, Enjoyed both, Service for wine and food was very prompt and the services friendly.

There are restaurants up and down Stephen Avenue - everything from pubs to fine dining. Over the years I've eaten at the restaurant next door several times and never had a good meal there (see my review of Blink), I've eaten at the pub two doors down, but somehow never wandered into Divino. I guess I saved the best for... More

The food was fresh and local. Rarely do I clear my plate at a restaurant, I did here. The price for food was fair and comparable for the standard served. Our table had a variety of appy's and mains consisted of Elk, pork, steak and a pasta dish. All very declared outstanding. Nice atmosphere, open kitchen. Only downside noted was... More

Our party of four visited Divino for supper recently. Overall, the food and service were outstanding. Great wine list and many options by the glass. The appetizers we ordered were the moules et frites (mussels and fries), apple/pear/endive salad, and the tempura green beans with a hot honey mustard dip. All were excellent but the salad size (especially compared to... More
