“Excellent food and service. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013 via mobile

We had an excellent dinner at Trattoria Divina. The service was very good and the food was wonderful. The lobster bisque with a puff pastry top was some of the best we have ever had. We would highly recommend dinner here and will definitely dine here on our next visit to Hilton Head.

“Amazing birthday dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

We had dinner at Trattoria Divina and it was by far the best dinner we've had in a while. Besides, the dinner was extremely toothsome.

Paige was our waitress and as she checked my ID for alcohol she noticed my date of birth and wished me a happy birthday. It turned out she spread the word and had a surprise desert specially made by the Chef for my birthday on the house. They teated us like family.

We will come back for sure.

“Horrible place, avoid at all costs. Much better choices available.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013

The Trattoria Divina is located in a strip mall. The next door business is a cigar store. It seems that they share a air handling unit or at the very least they suffer horrible infiltration. The entire restaurant has the smell of cheap cigars. The smell is all over your tongue and palate long before the food arrives. They tried moving us to a less offensive place in the restaurant. Trouble is, there is no such place. If you can abide the smell of cheap cigars while you are enjoying fine dining, this is the place for you. If not, I STRONGLY suggest that you find another of the islands fine dining restaurants. Try "The Studio", "Ela's Grille, "Vine", "Sage" or "Red Fish". Too many great restaurants on Hilton Head to suffer this place.

As much as I'd like to apologize for your experience, I can't. You came to our establishment, my wife didn't like the table and moved you. You never talked to us, never ordered, never tasted our food.

We had a restaurant full of people. You left without a word except to complain to another guest who told you how much they love our restaurant.

Yes, Hilton Head has some great restaurants. I will respectfully disagree with your assessment. Our chef achieved multiple years recognition by Zagat for being a "top ten" restaurant in the country. I don't know of many restaurants that can make that claim.

Yes there's a cigar shop next to our location. No we don't share air handlers.

“Amazing Food & Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

A must try! We all went with the Fixed menu and no one was disappointed. It was all wonderful. Lobster Bisque had large pieces of lobster and was not too thick. Cesar was nice. Pasta was fresh and wonderful. Bread was so hot and fresh.
