    Every time I passed DeVine, I used to think that this place was just a typical pub where CBD office worker bees frequent after a hard days work. That was until I was made aware that it is actually an Italian restaurant. Having seen its good reviews on the net, my friend and I decided to pay a visit.

    When you first entered the place, it indeed felt like your usual Australian pubs high tables, stools, and bars like usual. But behind it was one secluded, albeit exclusive dining area with low light atmosphere owing some brightness to the sun shine coming in from the large old vintage windows at the end of the restaurant.

    We were spoiled for choice by the food offerings on the menu, not because they were an exhausted list of everything Italian, but some of them are of highly curated, specialised dishes we hardly find anywhere else.

    For entre, I ordered the cured trout & crabmeat salad with crisp wild rocket, and we picked it right. It was by far the most delicious salad I have ever had for a long time, and I was not overstating it.

    I also ordered the angel hair pasta with chopped prawns, basil & chilli. Again, it was very delicious despite my surprise of finding the chilli quite hot for an Italian dish.

    Both of the dishes that we picked had very clean taste, with each ingredient matched perfectly to create powerful dishes and I am sure this would apply to other dishes on the menu too.

    The staffs were incredibly friendly, attentive, and professional throughout the night.

    It was such a pleasant dining experience. I will definitely be coming back for more.

    I visited with a few girl friends on a Friday night. The venue has a nice sophisticated atmosphere. There is plenty of indoor seating and a few tables on the pavement out front. Im not a wine drinker but my companions seemed to like the range. Service was polite and friendly. We didnt eat, just had drinks.

    Nice atmosphere and decor, but the prawn pasta I had wasn't that great. The service was very good though. I'll probably try it again.

    It is a really nice place if you are a wine lover. They have knowledge about their wines and have a great selection. I don't recommend this place if you only want to grab dinner.

    Though I have had pizza here a few times, I wouldn't call it a restaurant as much as a wine bar which serves food. Though I am giving it four stars, I totally disagree with the description above stating "generous portion sizes" as when I am here and see those around me eating, the sizes are tiny.

    Needless to say the wine selection here is close to the best in Sydney. The selection from around the world is worth the visit. I always start with a Riesling, another white and then move onto the reds. I would go into specifics, but obviously they can change from month to month. I would suggest not to be afraid to ask questions as the waiters will always steer you in the right direction. But to be honest I don't think they have a bad wine to choose from anyway, so it's not like it makes their job difficult or anything.

    Yeah they have beers for those people's palate is so inclined. Simply put, don't expect to had a great meal here, do expect a great selection of wines and you shouldn't be disappointed with anything you choose.

    Came back here again last night for a quick dinner. We ordered duck liver pate to share, followed by stuffed baby calamari and stuffed quail. All the dishes were great, but the quail dish was a little on the rich side. The back room is super cosy and perfect to hide in on a rainy night. Being a school night, we avoided wine.

    deVINE is a great little wine bar / restaurant. The restaurant is tucked away in the back, but is nice and cosy. I had the stuffed calamari which was short of... devine? They had a great wine selection too, and the waiters were great at recommending me something to drink.
