I don't care much for Italian food, but the lobster linguini was pretty good. And also, they said they won't deliver or make take-out orders, however, they did so for our order for five people. They boxed it up well and we on our way back to the Hilton to eat in our rooms. Pretty nice.

Aside from our friendly waiter, we were not happy with our visit to Ristorante Divino. Our reservation was not on file; we waited altogether too long for a table, the service was slow. Drinks were unremarkable. Food was good but not worthy of price. The bill was shockingly high. We will not return.

Besides devine food. A cold and rainy night, an early arrival, a great evening! Greeted at the door, offered a really nice wine from a very adequate list, a great choice of Northern Italian cuisine, along with a few pasta entrees. All served with attention, all questions answered (and we had a few about the choices offered in this part... More

We have been coming here for 8 years. But this year only twice. Each year since 2009 we've enjoyed it less. The food and service have slipped and the dress code has relaxed. It was once a romantic evening surrounded by well dressed mature diners with a total fine dining service well worth the price. Now casual families create loud... More

A group of six of us went there for the first time since the restaurant has been under new ownership. The romantic setting is unchanged but the food might be even better than before. For example, the smoked trout appetizer was always delicious, but the presentation is much nicer now. The fish special, whole roasted branzino served with potatoes roasted... More

My husband and I celebrated our 4th anniversary at Ristorante Divino on Saturday, 1 November and it was wonderful! The atmosphere is not and we had a table right by the window so it was pretty romantic. I had one of the special appetizers with fusilli pasta and duck confit in an herbed butter sauce. OMG! Delicious!!! I could've eaten... More

Love their olive oil and parmesan cheese/dipping bread - Great coffee - excellent dessert (and I'm not a dessert person). Best item - not in the menu - spaghetti bolognese (or Linquine bolognese) - just ask for it. Wine list could be better and liquor is poured from mini-bottles - a bit strange and cheap feeling. I paid about $24... More

I wish I could review this but never got a chance to try it. Drove 500 miles to visit USC with our daughter. Found this place on hotel site and here was so looking forward to a good meal...skipped eating on the road to save ourselves. About hour before our reservation they called to say they wanted to close early... More
