Fantastic

Vincenzo is an amazing chef. The food here is always incredible. I had the parpadelle and my friends ordered the spaghetti and meatballs and the sedadini. We had a wonderful bottle of Barbaresco. This is a neighborhood gem. Great service too.

Every detail is seriously considered from taste to presentation. Service is impeccable and the food is really great. Better for a romantic dinner but good for friends too

Went for dinner after a long international flight into SFO. Didn't want to deal with downtown SF and needed something close to the San Mateo Bridge. We were just looking for comfort food, easy parking and a convenient location, but found a true gem. The service and food were exceptional. A simple tortelloni dish made so much better with a...

Looks like a great little local with character but despite a good menu, we found the food a little disappointing. Meatballs ok but not great and desert really not as described.

Belmont is a nice neighborhood and this classy Italian restaurant fits right in. Nicely laid-out menu, all authentic Italian. Servings are American-size. Service is prompt and attentive; I liked the white pressed linen and accurately placed silverware. We were served deliciously baked bread after sitting down. The spaghetti with Tuscan meatballs were tremendous, and the coffee nice and strong. It's... More

We went to this neighborhood restaurant (7 of us) this past weekend. There was nice ambiance, cloth napkins/tablecloths, and a good, varied menu. They have a full bar and made a wonderful Manhattan. Corkage for wine was $20.00. Bread was delicious and they kept it coming if you wanted. The refilled our water glasses promptly. My Linguine and clams was... More

Divino has been my favorite restaurant for some time now. Vincenzo always has interesting southern Italian choices on his menu. This year I had a group of 16 at Divino for New Years Eve and everyone enjoyed the food the setting and the evening. This week Vincenzo had a guest chef, Gabrille, do a special meal to a sold out...

Divino easily transports me back to Italy. The food is very authentic and quite wonderful. The pastas are light in a way they are in Italy. There is a quite nice wine list for such a relatively small restaurant. The decor is very restrained, unlike most places in the US, and more like small restaurants in Italy. It is not... More
