Amazing!!!

I have to say I have been to many Italian restaurants, but this one by far was the most impressive, for the layout of the restaurant to the service of the staff, will differently recommend this to my friends and family.

Booked a private room for a dinner party last week. We had a great time. The scallops and shrimp were perfectly prepared. The service was fast and attentive. I especially was pleased over the wine list and prices. This will be my go to entertainment spot in Columbia.

Outstanding meal, service and ambiance. Got more than I expected from this unassuming venue. Everything I had was freshly made from scratch ingredients. Plus it's next door to my favorite hotel, the new Hyatt Place.

My niece and I ate at Divino last night. Everything was good. The restaurant looks nice and the people were very friendly and helpful. The wine list was interesting and had good wines by the glass at reasonable prices, at least for someone from Atlanta. I had a nice ripasso from northern Italy. We started with a cheese plate and...

I have dined at this restaurant on several occasions. The service has been top notch on each visit. The wait staff takes that extra step to go into great detail with descriptions of the specials and the everyday menu. The wait staff makes suggestions and are very knowledge in the products they are serving. We have always been greeted and... More

Just returned from one of the best dining experiences in Columbia SC. I had the duck appetizer and also the stuffed peppers, both amazing. The entries we chose were the rack of lamb and the pork osso buco, both specials for the evening. Both were generous portions and cooked to perfection. The staff from front to back were more than...

I probably should rate this as "excellent" rather than very good, but I like to limit the number of places that I truly consider to be excellent. This restaurant is very, very good though. Their menu is more varied than I thought it might be, everyone at our table really enjoyed what they ordered. The service was great also. It... More

My colleagues and I dined here on our last night in town. The Caprese salad was a delicious starter to our meal. My entrée that evening was pan seared scallops with spinach and ricotta dumplings - absolutely amazing! We declined to have dessert, as we were all quite satisfied with our entrees.
