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

We dined at a very busy time, Mother's day. This is always a stress test for the chef / kitchen and staff. We were seated immediately and throughout the evening had excellent service. They were very accommodating and attentive to food allergies. We were a party of 4 and had a wide variety of dishes. My arugula salad was excellent... More

this restaurant has very friendly helpful staff and a good selection of dishes. We very much enjoyed our evening. However, we thought that the flavours were a little bland and, like so many places in California, the wine list is very pricey. However they do make their own bread so if you are a fan of baked goods this is... More

Now it has a bar (brand new). There is a private dining area for groups. Everything on the menu (and we have tried everything over a period of time) was excellent and served perfectly and efficiently. There are no frills or dim lights but the food and drinks are always good. A local gem.

The ambiance of the restaurant is very nice and the service is friendly and relatively quick. The bread basket they give is very good, but besides that, everything else is pretty bad. Food tasted like it was dropped in a Morton's salt can and then brushed off and to top off the night, the bill was pretty high.

This is the place for real upscale Italian, but that's not to say you can't get a simple plate of spaghetti and world call meatballs at a reasonable price. Plus they've recently added a very comfortable bar so arriving a bit early for a cocktail is not a bad idea. We've dined here a number of times and always enjoyed... More

We have been to Divino a number of times and have always like it. Food: The food is very good, the favors authentic and there is attention to detail to the preparation. This will keep us going back. The menu does change frequently and the dishes are quite different that what you would see in a regular Italian place. This... More

Perfetto! The food is delicious and authentic, the staff is friendly; the atmosphere is warm and inviting; and the chef humble, yet obviously talented. A gem of a place!!!
