About
How Divino! When the hustle and bustle gets too much, Divino Ristorante is the perfect escape. An easy one-hour drive from Melbourne, you can find yourself at home in the glassdoor pavilion which boasts spectacular views of the Yarra Valley. Imagine eating seasonal produce from an on-site kitchen garden and sipping wine (try the "blanc de blancs" - it's our favourite sparkling!) from vineyards that flourish before your eyes. Divino Ristorante has made this a reality, and its European influenced menu will delight the entire family. If mouth-watering eye-fillet of beef with a creamy cauliflower puree doesn't tickle your fancy, try the house-made gnocchi with locally sourced Persian feta. For all

Food was ok, staff very polite and helpful until the crowds arrived. One large group was extremely loud and the staff did nothing to curtail the raucous behaviour. The restaurant is all hard surfaces and the noisy just bounces around the room. The setting outside...More

Sitting outside on the grass under the umbrella. Group of 8, very well looked after by the great staff. Duck Gnocchi was the favourite, closely followed by the barramundi and scotch fillet. Must try the truffle fries too. A most satisfying experience.
