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

DiVino was the perfect place to grab a meal in downtown Calgary. The wait-staff was very helpful and knowledgable and made us feel right at home. The menu offerings were excellent as was the wine selection. Would go back in a heart beat.

Very attentive service and I loved their tuna salad. You must try the tempura green beens. What a treat !! All their salads looked yummy and healthy and I eyed the homemade pasta a lot.

Atmosphere is good. Appetizers were good. Good beer selection and wine list. However... when I asked for medium rare on a lamb dish, they refused because they cook it sous vide and medium rare would have required finishing it in a pan. Okaaaay. So I ordered a different lamb entree that they could cook medium rare. Only they didn't. Way... More
