Divino Italian restaurant opened its doors in 2001 by a team of a father and son, and the place is inspired by the trattoria’s and enotecas that are found all over Italy, and it gets packed rather quickly so reservations are highly recommended and it is a very nice place in which you feel comfortable immediately. The restaurant is not too far away from the Montrose area of town, at 1830 West Alabama and the hours are from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday and until 10:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
