I've eaten here probably 20+ times for both business and pleasure, in small and large groups and, in my view, it looks like the restaurant has lost a few steps in the kitchen. While the room, service and wine list are still top-notch, the food I had was mostly average. As part of a larger group, I shared a few... More

I had seen this restaurant on 8th Avenue, SW, passing by it many times, but never really had the inclination of entering. There was always somewhere else to go to. One day, Jan. 2017, I was invited for a business lunch. I was glad to test the venue. The ambience of the place is quiet, sedate and professional. One can... More

I've been to Divino's several times over the years and it just keeps getting better! Last night we went with another couple, and had an excellent meal. 3 of us ordered the linguine, which was VERY good. Normally I'm a beef person, but I thought I'd try the pasta instead. Also had the soup special, which was AMAZING. Service was... More

I try to get to Divino Wine & Cheese Bistro when I am in Calgary. I love the ambiance of the place. The wood burning grill adds a cosy warmth to the bistro and smells amazing! We always start with the tempura green beans which are served with a grainy mustard. Also on the appetizer menu are the pomme frites... More

Really enjoyed the dining experience here. Menu quite varied. Cheese plate nicely done accompanied with some very nice bread. The peppered chicken pasta was delicious and I would definitely have it again. Wine list extensive with a few reasonably priced bottles. I can highly recommend the chocolate tart for dessert.

Dined with a few girlfriends for a going away party and Divinos was the perfect spot. When we sat down, they offered us a chesse menu, which had explanations of each cheese to help you choose which was VERY helpful. We all tried something different and all walked away raving about the food. Our server also was able to quickly... More

Date night dinner and it was fantastic. The Fois Gras ravioli was great as expected, but it was the other items that really impressed. My duck leg confit appetizer with bean cassoulet was exceptional, as was the better half's duck confit pesto penne main course. The potato gnocchi was the weak link, but still very good.

Stopped in to check out this trendy little place on Stephen Ave (8th Ave) with some friends Friday after work. We were pretty early and had no problem getting a wonderful table by the open patio doors, but it did fill up quickly and the patio tables were full the whole time we were there. I definitely recommend booking a... More
