Description
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 you cheese lovers out there, the hand-made burrata is a must. With breath-taking panoramic scenes, fresh, local produce and a neighbouring cellar door, this venue offers a truly unique experience. Best dish: Char-grilled eye fillet of beef accompanied with cauliflower puree, spring onion, onion ash, jus and 15y.old balsamic
