At this busy time of year everywhere was heaving. Booked a table on the internet very speedy reply. As visitors in town nearly walked past this bistro. Excellent food, good service considering how busy they were. Wine pricey.

The atmosphere is fantastic and the food even better. Let the staff help you chose some great cheeses as an appy. Make sure to have the fig jam!!! Blackened Linguini was superb.

Not a terrible place, but definitely not worth the hype. Cheese it pretty good, I liked all the choices that I made (I had had some of them before though so I knew that I would enjoy them). But the atmosphere leaves a bit to be desired and the waiting staff are so moody, or I guess snotty is a... More

We had dinner with friends a couple of days ago and we all enjoyed the evening. The cocktails, wine and the pasta were excellent and the cheese just divine. Divino can be quite noisy when full and the service was a bit slow, but nothing really to complain about. We will definitely come back.

I had planned to take a friend out for dinner and she had selected a couple of other restaurants, none of which worked out. I selected Divino relatively last minute, based on reviews. We loved it. The food was delicious, and the kitchen was open so we could watch our food being prepared. We had carpaccio, scallops, duck, creme brulee... More

Great food & wine. I had the really good buccanitini pasta dish which is quite spicy & then the cheese - both really good. Not cheap though.

Strategically located at busy Stephen Avenue, Divino is a very good alternative for pubs ideal for families travelling with minors aged 8-12 years old. A good venue for people watching and enjoy a good meal with your favourite vino. Mussel and steak frites, Chicken Cobb Salad and Pistachio Pesto Pene with Duck Confit were all delightful. No kids menu but... More

The cheese selection was wonderful and the waitress paired out wine with the cheese we selected. We topped off with a Salmon salad that we split for a very filling and delicious dinner.

The food is great at this restaurant, with interesting menu, great wine choices (hence the name) and very very engaging and helpful staff. The restaurant has been around a long time on the Calgary restaurant scene, according to my local friends, and it is remarkable that they've kept up the standard w/o going down hill or looking tired. The menu... More
