Restaurant description

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.

    Excellent food and great atmosphere.I warmly recommend the tortellini al tartufo nero, among others. Good value for money too.

    Superb food, excellent waiting staff. One blemish - they served a badly burnt almond biscuit and weren't that interested when it was politely pointed out.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the beautifully presented and deliciously tasting food in a welcoming ambiente and with friendly and attentive hospitality. We are looking forward to returning with friends.

    would go again have scored ambience as low only because it was quiet when we dined

    We dined early at 7 because we were setting off on a journey the next day. My friends were from Australia & I had not seen them for several years. They were treating me to a night at a beautiful hotel followed by a weekend in Paris, so I wanted to treat them to something special. The service was great, friendly but unobtrusive, the meal was delicious. [...]

    Lunchtime booking; restaurant fairly quiet on a very sunny day. Staff were attentive and friendly providing good service throughout. They were happy for us to stay for the afternoon whilst we chatted and had a few drinks. The Chelsea Flower Show set menu was good value.

    Had a great lunch, fish cooked to perfection, staff attentive without being overbearing. Never fails to please, one of my favourite Italian places in London

    We entertained our Aussie friend here because Ebury St was close for his overnight stop over in London. Not knowing restaurants within the area we searched via and read what other diners had to say. We were delighted with the venue and excellent service. Don't expect a cheap dinning experience...3 people enjoying pre dinner drink and 3 courses and wine [$] of which 12.5% service
