Trattoria Divina Ratings and Reviews
Thoughts about Trattoria Divina
We loved the atmosphere of the restaurant and service was fantastic! Plates cleared off immediately and information about menu items was very helpful.

We have been to this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. The 4 of us ordered different things and all were beautifully done. One issue - my friend's steak was more rare than she requested. They not only took it back to fix it but the manager came over to apologize and we were given a free dessert due to the mistake. Everything was great! Service by Lena was excellent. She was busy with many customers but served us professionally and promptly. We will definitely go back.

TD was nice looking but freezing.A/C was extreme. Salad was very good but entrees were not so good. Small selection and preparations were not so good. Not one of us (4) enjoyed our main course. Example: The marinara sauce served with the osso bucco was bitter with too much basil or oregano and did not go with the veal. Altogether , MEH!
Made the visit!
Trattoria Divina was such a treat and a PERFECT way to celebrate my mothers 85th birthday. The staff (Lena in particular), the food, the value, the wine - all exceeded our expectations, was a tremendous value, Lena was superb - can't say enough good things about it. Highly recommend this restaurant and would come back here in a heartbeat!

Hilton Head, SC
Excellent menu choices. Service was superb. Nice to find a restaurant that one can talk in and be able to hear one's partner. Food was excellent. Wine list was very good. Definitely will be back.
Always A Special Event
We went to Trattoria Divina for our anniversary. This is our third visit. We love it. The food is a gastronomic delight. The service is impeccable and attentive. We love the additional delights like being greeted with prosecco and the amuse bouche. We can't wait to visit again.

The pasta with seafood was fantastic and the lobster and shrimp dish was also excellent. Loved the lobster bisque. Great service too. A favorite on the island. Highly recommend.
Another great meal at TD!!!!!
Another great meal at TD!!!!!
We tried this place due to it's rating. It is in a shopping mall and not distinguished from the outside. Once inside, the decor and the attitude of every staff person takes over. The service is first rate. Our server gives us some suggestions and we ordered appetizers, salad, entree and dessert. All of our food items were prepared with care and tasted outstanding. One of the owners came by after our meal to check on our meal and she was very gracious and interested in our experience. Not cheap, but good food and service never is.

Our waitress still down. Been there 22 years and knew the menu very well. Great deal of help in choosing the right dish.
Trattoria Davinca - A Gem
This is one of our favorites when we come to Hilton Head. It's tucked away, almost hidden. If you like Italian you will love this place. Very creative menu. The food is consistently great with service to match. We've never been disappointed.
Food average, everything else great
Interesting place. The service was impeccable and the ambiance was relaxed and comfortable. Everyone was friendly and anxious to please. The food was a surprise as it didn't fit the rest. The caprese was poorly done with little flavor. The asparagus appetizer was better but only average. We had ravioli in two different forms and it was just ok. I will try it again and hope the food was just a bad night, since everything else was on the mark.
We were in town for a tennis tournament and wanted to find a nice restaurant close to where we were staying. I used Open Table and found Trattoria Divina. The food was excellent, but the server was a little slow. I wasn't really happy with my orange juice in my drink. Other than that, we had a wonderful time.
We dined at Trattoria Divina our last night on Hilton Head and had a wonderful meal. The dining room was not very crowded for a Friday night, and there was a strange and unpleasant scent to the restaurant upon entering (like a cleaning solution or deodorizer scent), so I was not sure what to expect. However, we had a lovely experience and a delicious meal. Our server was attentive (though a bit melodramatic) and addressed our special requests. When he got distracted by another table, a different server came over to insure we were taken care of. Everything we ate that evening was delicious- lobster bisque- amazing, caprese salad- yummy. Arrabbiata- wonderful, mushroom and black truffle pasta- oh wow. And bananas foster cheescake for dessert that we loved. Great meal, great experience- we will definitely return when we visit again.

Trattoria Divina is a first day must stop everything year when we visit Hilton Head. The chef made me squid ink calamari Fra Diablo last visit and was the best I've ever had.
Trattoria Divina has made significant changes to their menu to become a more traditional Italian restaurant. Great move. Now they can go nose to nose with the other great Italian spots in the area. Still a great night out.
As soon as we sit down, we were brought champagne.
The waiter brought a nice sampling of Champagne as soon as we were seated, along with another small tasting the cook had made. Both, very good. The service was wonderful. Our main dish was Grouper, and it was prepaired perfect. We usually get a salad and an appitizer and share, as well as the main dish. Some charge a split fee, but I don't think they did. If they did, they didn't charge much.
Everything was excellent. Paige was wonderful!
Everything was excellent about the experience. Paige was wonderful and the food was fantastic! I have always had an outstanding experience there but this time it was exceptional! Cannot wait to return!
We like to sit at the bar and watch the activity. Tammy the bartender is always engaging, informative about their wines and pleasant. Most often we go with her suggestions on their featured wines and got a bottle of Oregon Pinot noir. I usually like to try new things but can't resist the pear salad, so fresh and tasty. I rarely eat bread but can't resist at least a corner piece of their crusty bread. We split the sea bass special and it was absolutely perfectly prepared.

Pasta always great choice
Pasta always great choice
We enjoyed our dinner very much and will eat here again when we come back to Hilton Head!
Wine list was extensive; although we were not having wine, we did take a peek at it. Food was good and the service was excellent. The Gnocchi had a creamy tomato sauce that was nice but was not what we were used to. Ravioli special was very good and a large portion. Service was excellent. We had everything we needed when we needed it and very professionally provided. Jesse M. was our server.
Elegant and Delicious
Terrific restaurant with extraordinary food and beyond the normal service. Love the complimentary prosecco and small app. The scampi over lobster risotto is delicious, and the Capasante with lobster and shrimp over pasta is more than good. Andreas was a great server and the rest of the serving team was tremendously attentive and pleasant. Great meal; great service; gem of a restaurant.
This is the ONE
Wonderful and flavorful dishes served by pleasant informed servers. They are so willing to make it YOUR way for YOUR night. Love the atmosphere, rooms are beautiful. This is one of our favorite restaurants on the island
Our first trip
This was our first visit to HHI and we are very glad we made it to Trattoria Divina. The food was fresh and delicately prepared and our server Dominick was fabulous. We will certainly be back for more. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Great food with very attentive staff.
Great food with very attentive staff.
Good food, great wine list
The restaurant has an artsy-euro decor and very elegant service. The food was good, but not outstanding. The wine list, on the other hand was VERY impressive. If you're looking for a romantic intimate spot for you and your sweet heart to dine before seeing a movie (the movie theater is right around the corner) this is a good choice. If you're looking for the best foodie-cuisine on the island, this would probably not be your first choice.
Very good, basic Italian Cuisine
The service was excellent, warm ambience and good, solid Italian staples

consistent good quality, generous portions, a little pricey BUT worth it
Not as good as expected.
Food was good, but not as good as pricing indicated that they thought it was. Service was very good, even though it was Valentine's night eve. Wait staff was there every few minutes. But, I had to ask to get my water glass refilled. Wine by the glass was expensive, starting at $8/glass for a small pour, and by the bottle was excessive for offerings. Other restaurants in Hilton Head offer better food for the money.
Second Time as Good as the first
It's a great little place in HHI for some very good not factory Italian. Very good staff and service with a nice wine list. It was my second visit and it was consistent with the first which to me tells the tale of if its good. The lobster pie was a special and was it ever as well as the linguini pescatore. Highly recommend you give it a go you will not be disappointed.
Excellent for Valentine's dinner
My bride of twenty nine years and I enjoyed a fabulous evening. Had reservations at 7:00PM and were seated upon arrival at 7:02PM. Immediately served hot bread and complimentary appetizer and champagne. Crab cake salad for first course was delicious. Shareable. Both entree's were well presented, served hot, and absolutely delicious. The ice sculpture sorbet was quite novel and tasty. Tiramisu was amazing! Waiter was very attentive and we never felt rushed. In fact, he encouraged us twice to take our time and enjoy the evening. We did! Highly recommended and will return.
