Looking for that perfect combination of tasty food and great wine? Divino Wine and Cheese Bistro is an absolute gem. Located on Stephen Avenues east end, 113 8 Ave SW. The upscale modern feel offers elegance and sophistication with an ambiance that promotes conversation. I went for dinner on a Wednesday evening arriving to full house all enjoying some their 2000+ different wine labels.
Every course was scrumptious. I started off with the Buffalo Tartare – CRMR Ranch-Raised Buffalo Tenerloin, Saltspring Island Chevre, Black Pepper Vinaigrette and paired with a glass of 2008 BIBEI Mencia – Brancellao Lalama from Riberia Sacra, Spain. – scrum diddly umptious.
My entrée was the Buccatini pasta – spicy tomato Sauce, Guanciale, Parmigiano Reggiano that heated up with every delicious sip of wine.
The service was top notch; my server Deena was informative, explained the menu and provided a level of service that Calgary foodies should expect. What got me was the friendliness and wine knowledge of all staff members from the hostess to the kitchen staff.
Divino Wine and Cheese Bistro focuses on only the highest quality local products & proudly offers naturally raised game from CRMR’s own Alberta game ranch.
Everything about this modern bistro exceeded my expectations; it is home to some of the most inventive Wine list I have experienced in Calgary and the prices are reasonable for the quality of the product they put out. I would absolutely recommend an evening out and putting Divino Wine and Cheese Bistro as a restaurant to visit.
