This was a good place to eat, but it ended up being a bit more expensive than I'd expected or heard (unless I'm remembering incorrectly, it approached 100 for two appetizers, two entrees, and two glasses of wine). The food is very good, however, and given what I think is the influence of contemporary cuisine and California cuisine, you'll find... More

The setting is incredible: interior carved out of stone with jagged rocks protruding, definitely a medieval feel to it. And the food is no less incredible: shared primi of creamy polenta (or was it risotto?...my notes say polenta) onto which were shaved white truffles at our table; no polenta (or risotto) has ever tasted so good! My wife had a... More

Went there for a business dinner with Italian colleagues and was delighted to see that it was still truffles season. Tried a risotto with white truffles and a rabbit leg with black and can highly recommend both.

You need to stop reading this review and start eating at Osteria da Divo! Make reservations and ask to sit in the cave, which is to say the coolest (temperature wise), lowest part of the restaurant. The pork loin is quite nice, as is the risotto (they stir it, while hot, in the well of a wheel of cheese).

Wow. we were blown away by the setting of this restaurant. Recommended to us by our hotel we decided to try this place for lunch. Atmosphere was so quaint-yes there is a slight damp smell in the air but that is the charm of being in a cave-like atmosphere!! A real rustic treat that we could not take our eyes... More

We were in Italy for 3 weeks and although every meal was wonderful this was exceptional! You have to try the steak with shaved truffles.

Typical menu for an Italian restaurant but very well executed. Given we were a group of many, we were seated on a very large table on the lower floor....and lunch was almost like in a catacomb. Stone vaults made the ceiling and the low lights helped in making it more atmospheric. The service was excellent and the food (especially the... More

We We're a little concerned after reading a couple of negative reviews. Now I,m convinced those reviewers wouldn't know excellence if it ran over them! The staff from owner to bus boys (in this case Girl) were impeccable in service. The food was creative, in quality and presentation. Truffles shaved onto a parmigiana risotto, a pork dish that was maybe... More

This is just a great restaurant ! Beautiful place and really nice seating in the "cellars" below the entrance. You get down a few stairs to find all nice different places where you are seated with beautiful art and old pieces like the Etruscan inscription. Furthermore to find out later that not only the seating and atmosphere is great, but... More

We happened upon Da Divo at the recommendation of our hotel in Siena. How lucky we were! First of all the ambience is exactly what a romantic like me is looking for in Italy. Warm and candlelit - rough bricks and old world charm. The chef offered a taste of delicious creamy pumpkin soup as a mini appetizer while we... More
