What a find. This place would get the same rating if it was in any major city around the country. Excellent food and nice decor. Our group ordered almost everything on the menu so we all got to taste everything. No flops. Best part were the desserts. Must haves are the ice balloon with ice cream and the home made tiramisu.

Wow, what a great review to read. We appreciate your patronage and review. Trattoria Divina staff love what they do and we appreciate it when people take the time to acknowledge it.

It's especially nice to read a review by someone from my neck of the woods. Let us know when you're in town again.

Cheers,
Trattoria Divina.

Located in a shopping plaza, it took a while to find, even using Garmin. The atmosphere is lovely, and the service was exceptional. The food was good, but didn't match my expectations considering the price.

We are frequent visitors to HHI and have eaten at all the most highly rated restaurants. Many are indeed wonderful, but Trattoria Divina is not to be missed. It is located in a strip mall just ourside the gates of Sea Pines. While it is not easy to find, don't be disuaded. Once there you are warmly greeted with a complimentary glass of Prosecco The service is wonderful as are the many menu items. The ambiance is inviting the the dining room spacious, a treat on Hilton Head. It is a luxury not to be seated right on top of your neighboring diners. Calamari Fritti is tender, not heavly breaded and delicious. One in our group ordered the Linguini ala Pescatora, spicy and chuck full of delicious fish. One had the delicious Penne Bolognese. 2 ordered the special of the day, Wahoo pan roasted and served with 3 huge scallops over a bed of Gnocci with tomato sauce - outstanding! We all raved about our meal and vowed to return again during this trip.

we ate there last year and had a fantastic meal. We decided to go again this year and were not disappointed. Great food,presentation, and service. Our kids loved the gelato served within an ice igloo. Nice touch.

Welcome Back! It's nice to know that both times you were at our restaurant that you enjoyed yourselves. As the new owners of Trattoria Divina it's quite gratifying to hear people, especially with children talk about our place.

If Hilton Head is your frequent or annual experience, we appreciate you and your family spending some time with us.

Cheers,

Based on all the good reviews on Trip Advisor decided to try Trattoria Divina on our last night on HHI. Big mistake. The food was just ok after we finally got all of it. My daughter's pasta was missing the chicken and mine was missing the shrimp when first served. We were almost done with our meals by the time the missing items showed up. Another thing to rarely show up at our table was our waiter. When he did show up he did a poor job--asking for only my husband's and my drink orders before rushing off, ignoring my daughters. When we finally had enough we had to ask the busboy for our check because we had not seen our waiter for such a long time. Overall was a very bad experience.

As the new owner of Trattoria Divina, first let me thank you for the visit as well as the review. Yes we have a very special place, but that's no excuse for poor service regardless of how busy we get.

When you come back to Hilton Head, please give me a call. I'd like the opportunity to share with you why so many people like us. I'm convinced that under different circumstances, you'll come to appreciate our restaurant any your new review will be significantly different.

Best Regards,
Trattoria Divina.
