Loved the home made pasta, it was great! But the inside decor and location is low rent and seedy, seriously lacking in class. I think the chef is talented, but he needs a better venue from which to work. Waitress was good, but lacking in polish and sophistication! Food is a 3 out of 5.

Outstanding wine, food and service . We were on vacation and went there with our 4 children . The complimentary champagne and fig with goat cheese appetizers were a nice way to start the evening . Insalata Caprese was excellent as was the warm Italian bread served at the table. I ordered the Chef's special, Pasta pomodoro with shrimp, which was fantastico. My wife had the Eggplant parmigiana and thought it was the best ever. We will definitely return .

Best meal that we had while at Hilton Head. Excellent from the Prosecco, to the appetizers (baked Brie, lobster bisque, and asparagus), to the entrees (steak, chicken, and seafood), to the desserts (best key lime pie and pistachio cheesecake). Highly recommend!

We chose this restaurant based on a great experience on a visit last year. We are a group of friends who get together to dine monthly (4 couples). Great menu, decent wine list and very good food, as anticipated. The food and bar service was a little slow but overall good. Unfortunately the server was surly and a little weak in customer relations.

It went downhill when we had to wait 45 minutes for the salads and bread to come after we placed our order. We were still waiting for our meals an hour and a half after we walked in the door. The tables around us were coming in and being served and leaving, one table even ordered a soufflé. Our orders were not special orders to justify the long wait. The one thing that stood out even above the wait, was the unapologetic nature of our waiter. He never came and gave us a status update or apologized that it was taking so long. It wasn’t until we got the attention of the manager that things began to move. Unfortunately we had plans after dinner and had to take our $158.00 dinner with us in a take-out bag. When the waiter brought over the bag, he was rude and tense and not at all apologetic. There was no adjustment to our bill, no offer to cover our drinks, but they did tell us they put extra bread in the bag.

A very nice restaurant. The waitress was outstanding. A nice touch was the glass of champagne they gave us prior to ordering. My wife had the Lobster Ravioli and I had the Eggplant. There were no leftovers. Very fresh authentic Italian Cuisine.

This was our first time visiting Trattoria Divina and we will definitely be back. Service was exceptional. We were greeted with glasses of proseco. We had the caprese salad special and lobster bisque -- both outstanding. For our entrees we had the lobster, shrimp and risotto, and the shrimp arribiatta. Also very good. Wine list was very good and our waitress was very helpful in making our decision.

We have been here many times and never been disappointed. We have a special table and they make sure that it is reserved for us. You can eat a substantial meal or go light, especially now when it is 90 plus outside. The chef is very accommodating and will make variations to an order if you request it. We were there with friends who we hadn't seen in a long time. There was no rush and the wait staff worked with our time frame. Love the Proceco and amuse buche that come before you order. They also have some of the best bread on the Island. Make a reservation and if you want privacy (romance) ask for the wine room. Enjoy.

Dining at the height of the season in Hilton Head can sometimes be a challenge. We make this fantastic Italian eatery our final night family dinner every year during 4th of July. Food is outstanding and the service great without being stuffy. Owner even stopped by to check on us several times.

This place was a gem! From the moment we walked in we were greeted with kind faces and voices and welcomed with class. The food was so incredibly perfect and the service was excellent and enjoyable. We received just the right amount of attention and privacy. The menu was easy to understand and quite adequately filled with choices. The waitress understood everything about the menu and the preparation. The owner came to greet us near the end of our stay. The atmosphere, service, food and value were all a 10.

We visit Trattoria Divina whenever we are in Hilton Head. The food is outstanding! The service and the staff provide excellent service and treat you royally. For starters the Lobster Bisque is the best! I have had several pasta dishes but the wild mushroom ravioli is my favorite. Their pasta, breads, and cheese are homemade. The desserts are absolutely worth trying. The Molten Lava Chocolate Cake is my favorite. If you enjoy great food, you must eat here!

A piece of metal in one dish and a long hair in another. They were nice enough to not charge the dinners for the children because of this which shows they took responsibility for this. Had it not been for this I would have given the food 4 stars. The service was a little slow but was okay. This was wasn't the fault of our server Dominick who went out of his way to service us.

We have been here several times. This time, one of our entrees was good (pasta) and the other was not (swordfish--the fish was a bit overcooked and the "pesto sauce" on the side was way too salty and garlicy). The service, which was excellent last time, was much less attentive this time. For example, we asked for additional bread and it never arrived. The wine corner was nice and quiet with less hussle and bussle. The menu variety--food and wine-- is excellent.

Food was amazing -we had a party of 7 and everyone enjoyed all of their choices from appetizer to main course to dessert. The Arrabbiata main course of shrimp, pasta, heirloom tomatoes, capers and a spicy lemon wine sauce was a wonderful summer meal. Alex was our server and he was a delight...and we found another Pittsburgh connection on HHI!

Homemade pasta full of tasty seafoods, meats and lick-the-bowl clean sauces! Plus a surprise swig of prosecco to start and a nice amuse bouche treat. While the cheesy decor and strip mall location might mislead you, this was a fantastic meal. And the kids menu was both diverse and homemade! I knocked out the last chicken fingers, as they were really slices of beautifully hand herb-breaded chicken breast. We will be back on our next vacation!
Lobster pot pie !
Been here several times before . Food is excellent , service fantastic and atmosphere is good . Finally ordered lobster pot pie . My wife and I split it ! Plenty for 2 . Lobster was tender and plentiful . The chef cut everything in half before the waitress severed us . Sauce was delicious . Could hardly eat it all ?
this was our 3rd (annual) visit to Trattoria Divinia it was excellent as usual which can be a pleasant surprise at Hilton Head the food was great, the service exemplary nice wine list, too the folks make you feel special and welcome it is on our list of mandatory dining out places on our annual visits
Everything about this hidden gem was terrific. From the service to food it could not have been better. Would highly recommend and will most certainly be back....we have been to many Italian spots on HHI and this is amongst our best experience.
We celebrated a 90th birthday here in Janaury and service, food, and ambiance was so good we returned for the next to occur birthday in the family. Service, food, and ambiance again great. Our server Dominick was super, the support staff friendly and helpful---water with no ice not a problem. MY husband had the LOBSTER POT PIE. To die for---highly recommend this dish, but make sure you are hungry. Its fantastic and huge. So much lobster, take home the leftovers for savory treat next day. This place is a wonderful spot, tucked away in a corne of Park Plaza. A great place to celebrate, or just have that dinner for two. We love it.

Hidden in unobtrusive corner of a strip plaza... You would totally miss this gem. I think it must be intentional to avoid crowds and possible cliental that could not appreciate the impressive wine list or table service entrees. We loved this place and will return soon!
