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

Lobster bisque was as good as it ever was as were out entrees. Our server,Ken was knowledgeable and attentive All said, this remains a gem in Columbia where we have... More

Visited here during a business trip. There were 7 of us. Service was excellent and attentive to our needs for discussion. There were other large parties but the restaurant was not loud and provided a great meeting place. We all chose something different. Food came out timely and hot. Would recommend the specials.

Excellent dinning experience with a French flare. Very good bar, with an experienced bar tender. Dinner menu should satisfy all tastes. Highly recommended, will come back again!

We decided to try out this place for our anniversary dinner. The food was very good, with excellent spices to make the dishes just a little different. If you aren't set on what you want to eat, ask for recommendations. Our server was really good. The wine list was exceptional. Try the peach Bellini, as it is very special--best Bellini... More

My coworker and I ate here on a Tuesday evening and were seated promptly without a reservation. The Charcuterie platter was not at all what we expected - it was actually patte and smoked duck breast. It was delicious but a little disappointing as we had our hearts set on panchetta and procuitto! My coworker felt the ceasar salad was... More

Consistently good. Nice atmosphere. Good service. Good food. They have the standard italian dishes and a few that are less common. Never had a bad meal there.

My husband and I dined at Ristorante Divino the night before my birthday, and also the night before we picked our son up from USC for the summer. We had a 7:00 reservation and were seated promptly, even though we arrived early. They have an extensive wine list, including one of our all-time favorites, Penfold's Grange. We didn't indulge in...

We went on a monday night. We sat at the bar although we have made reservations. The place was not busy. We essentially had the bar to ourselves and the undivided attention of the bartender which was nice. The drinks were good, but small and expensive. The appetizers were really good. The stuffed peppers and smoked trout were really tastey.... More

Wanted to like this place. Nice decor and I really love good Italian food. I had the ravioli with two sauces and my friend had risotto of the day, wild mushroom? I had a arugula salad and my friend had a scallop appetizer. The ravioli was the best of the bunch and even that was nothing special. The risotto was... More
