Tables are on top of each other and the noise level is very loud. Food was good and staff well trained but sometimes difficult to hear over the noise.

Divina Ristorante delivers delicious food and wonderful service. We dine here as a family (with young adults) as well as a couple. I would highly recommend.

We have been to Divina several times and are always struck by the excellent wait staff. The restaurant is bustling and crowded, the tables a hair too close together. The bread is great, crusty and fresh with your choice of olive oil or butter. The specials are, well, special! Lobster, octopus, veal chop, house made burrata, etc. the main menu is extensive enough to please any palate and they will alter to please. The fact that it is BYO adds to the experience and there’s a wine store across the street. This is a fine choice when you want authentic Italian, sometimes with flair.

My wife and I ordered a shared appetizer, one pasta dish each, no seafood, and we had coffee and shared a dessert.the food was good, not great, considering the bill came to over 90$ without gratuity

A few things right off the bat:
It’s always crowded so reservations are a must.
The clientele consists entirely of senior citizens.
It is expensive for basic Italian food of average quality.
A noticeable absence from the menu was beef... there is no steak or anything close on the menu, which I found rather curious.

For an appetizer, I was looking forward to the Octopus fra diavlo which caught my eye on the menu but was disappointed when I received a small leg sliced up floating in a soupy bowl of tomato sauce.
The fresh Tomato salad also disappointed as it was devoid of taste.

The halibut entree special was okay but an extremely small portion, even though it costs $34.
The Zuppa di pesce was average at best and was a few dollars cheaper.

The cannoli for Dessert fell flat.

So, dinner for two cost $140 (including tip) for a small unspectacular meal with a room full of seniors... not what I expected at all.
