More about Il Convivio

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.

Food was good but small portions on the special offer and they did not have half of the options. Desert was a hard rock cake which we should have sent back. Service was excellent.

Food was essentially too oily and salty (fish & chickpea soup and prawn spaghetti). We had the 2 course lunch for £20 (once they've added service) and it was nice enough but not really good vfm. great seats, ambience and service though.

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.

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.

[...] and fantastic wine list which compliments an ever changing seasonal menu.

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
