Divino's has always been great but they have stepped up their game recently. Get the gnocchi and the lamp chops are amazing as always. They have a wonderful wine selection and are located in the heart of the Vista.

I'd say average food. But good for the area . Cute spot but not fine cuisine . Meatballs full of filler and idk what but not meat. Bread served w oil only. Odd for Italian food.

Ate for first time since previous owner retired. Although current owners supposedly were doing the cooking when Fulvio owned it, it was very disappointing. Rack of lamb was so tough my wife could not cut it. Fish dish was small and tasteless.

The best Fine restaurant in Columbia. Italian food w a French twist scores high on the pleasure list. Daily specials along w an interesting menu makes for a good time for those who appreciate fine cuisine. They also have good wine choices as well. Servers are among the best in Columbia as well. I go frequently.

Great Italian dishes. Great wine. Excellent desert - must try the tiramisu! A little on the expensive side. The staff make this a great experience and they are very knowledgable.

I truly enjoyed our meal and service. It is a bit pricey and Vista parking is a pain. I will go again but not frequently.

Very expensive but delicious food. Highly recommend the bruschetta. The bartender knew EVERYTHING about all the food and wine offerings and made the experience even better.
