Stopped in to check out this trendy little place on Stephen Ave (8th Ave) with some friends Friday after work.

DiVino was the perfect place to grab a meal in downtown Calgary. The wait-staff was very helpful and knowledgable and made us feel right at home. The menu offerings were excellent as was the wine selection. Would go back in a heart beat.

Very attentive service and I loved their tuna salad. You must try the tempura green beens. What a treat !! All their salads looked yummy and healthy and I eyed the homemade pasta a lot.

Atmosphere is good. Appetizers were good. Good beer selection and wine list. However... when I asked for medium rare on a lamb dish, they refused because they cook it sous vide and medium rare would have required finishing it in a pan. Okaaaay. So I ordered a different lamb entree that they could cook medium rare. Only they didn't. Way... More

Sat on patio and enjoyed the wine and cheese plate. Nice selection of cheeses and if you go during happy hour, the plates are half off.

Booked table for four and can assure all we didn't leave disappointed. Service was excellent and that wasn't the best part ! The food was incredible. Everything we had was faultless and presented fantastically. My new favorite restaurant in Calgary.

Fantastic and diverse selection of cheeses and wines! Great service! A little dark and can get noisy but overall we've enjoyed the times we've popped in for a little nibble.
