The staff were very friendly and the overall atmosphere was pleasantly quiet. The restaurant itself was light and airy with a smart/casual ambience. The food was superb.
This was one of the best Italian restaurants I have eaten in.

Il Convivio is homed in a pretty Georgian house, serving exquisite Italian dishes. A contemporary conservatory area with a stunning retractable roof allows al fresco-style dining on warmer days.

The regularly-changing and colourful Il Convivio menu offers a selection of Italian specialities, from pasta to grilled meat and fish. Black spaghetti comes with decadent lobster and delicate white spring onion. Other favourites include the grilled lamb cutlets, covered in herbs and served with potato rosti and a creative black olive sauce. Innovative desserts at Il Convivio restaurant include the popular but inexplicable warm chocolate mousse infused with raspberry and served with vanilla ice cream.

Accompany your food with a choice from the truly extensive wine list offered by Il Convivio in Victoria. A light colour scheme allows deep red walls embossed with Dante’s poetry to stand out, while crisp white tablecloths and large plants almost take a backseat.

Il Convivio in London is a 9-minute walk from London Victoria Rail Station and around a 7-minute drive from Buckingham Palace.

    A very enjoyable lunch with excellent service and a good Italian "house" white wine. We would certainly go to Il Convivio for an evening meal as well if we were in London at any time.

    'Convivio' translates as more than just conviviality: it means a gathering of friends discussing art,music, philosophy over fine food. I can think of no other restaurant in London that provides a more conducive atmosphere for exactly that kind of pleasurable gathering. I have been delighted by Il Convivio ever since it opened; I relish the food, the service and the enchanting room that never dates. In 2015 I think it is better than ever. So a huge grazie to all who contribute to this enchanted place.

    This is beyond question my favourite Italian restaurant in this country. Not only is it so friendly and the ambience, bright, inviting and relaxing, the food is perfectly judged and balanced, at the same time as being inventive and another level entirely from the conventional Italian fare elsewhere. I have never eaten at Il Convivio and not been delighted. The prices are competitive in comparison with eating establishments nearby, and much better value for money. The weekly menu with three choices for each course currently stands at £23 for three at lunch time, £29 at dinner, though sides etc are extra. A great deal of care is taken over the wines too, and it's well worth following their advice if, like me, you are not always sure about which wine, with what, given a table of different dishes. A real skill. Pasta, risotto, vegetables perfectly timed; beautiful fish; home made sorbets with the season; fresh appetising ingredients; friendly and attentive service. 5 minutes walk from Victoria station; 10 from Sloane Square. Excellent.
