“A solid experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Misto Frito and Buffala Caprese were tasty. Scallop entree was small for the price and not caramelized enough although cooked to perfection. Crispy pork shoulder was not really crispy enough. Apple Fritters and Chocolate symphony desserts were tasty but small for the price. Good wine list for the price. Trey was excellent at his job, attentive but not intrusive.

“Excellent Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

We celebrated our anniversary by dining at Divino for the very first time. We were not disappointed in the slightest! Food and wine were excellent and service (by Carrie) was top-notch!!! Will definitely be returning again...and again...and again!

“Divino Restaurant - Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

We shared dinner with a friend at Divino on Friday night. As usual, the food was excellent as well as the service., This has been a long-standing "go-to" spot for us in Houston. Small, quiet, and delicious food, well prepared.

“What a disappointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

The menu sounds great but it is everything but. There was no taste to any of the food. At first I thought it was me but I had my husband taste my dinner and that was his thought also. The best thing about the meal was the wino and the olive oil for the bread.

“Top tier neighborhood bistro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011 via mobile

We have dined here often. Always offering new wine choices. Bruschetta is one our favorite appetizers. I always find their new fish dishes to be outstanding.
