Fantastic customer service

To be fair, we didn't eat here. We dropped in and there were no tables available. However, the manager called other area restaurants to see if they had a table as did the bar tender. Above and beyond customer service and greatly appreciated!

This restaurant has a good ambiance and the owner, Mr. Floyd and staff are very welcoming and attentive. The menu was fairly extensive and was therefore hard to choose from. My daughter had the sword fish and I had the risotto with shrimp and PEI mussels. Of the two the former was a better choice. My concern was that the... More

The service here was outstanding. Great food - I had a NY Strip that was prepared perfectly. Valet right out front that was complimentary and convenient. I would definitely recommend this place for a business or spouse dinner. You can walk to it from any nearby hotel.

Went to dinner for our 30th Anniversary. Had the Lamb Chops (5). Cooked perfect for my desire "medium". Swapped out the spinach for brussel sprouts. Served on a bed of garlic mashed potatoes. Excellent entrée. They served a healthy gin & tonic from the bar. Service was superior and the Valet parking was a gift giving how busy the evening... More

Everything was perfect. Our hostess Sarah was the best. She attended to our every need. I called ahead and they made a wonderful triple chocolate flourless cake for my wife. We had the lobster bisque and the lump crab and scallop appetizer. It was delicious. For the main course we had the signature lamb chops medium rare they were over... More

On a recent Saturday night 4 of us dined at Ristorante Divino. Most of what we had was OK, not outstanding. One entree, the cioppino, which I have had many times before, was almost inedible. The fish pieces in it must have been microwaved, because they were as hard as a rubber eraser. I pointed this out to the waiter... More

Had pizza and cheese cake on the taste of Columbia tour. My wife and I wanted to like this place, for we really miss a traditional Italian eatery. I hat to say this is not it, Pizza tasted like frozen dough and poor ingredients on top. Cheesecake was a like a cheap jello mix, no crumb bottom Not Italian, giveaway... More

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.
