I love eating and its just a blessing to find places where you can eat delicious food, not in tiny portions and still be amazed by the different flavors and textures- a pasta alla matriciana here is a different experience! Service is impecable, wine list complete. I am not a huge fan of the decor though.

I went to Il Convivio Troiani on 31st May and I had made reservation 2-3 weeks in advance. Seat arrangement was great and the atmosphere of the restaurant is warm and cozy. Although the foods are not the most excellent but it was awesome no matter in taste, presentation and creativity. Service was excellent. As it was my wift's birthday... More

We went to this restaurant with great expectations because it had been awarded a Michelin Star. Sadly it was a disappointment. The staff was extremely nice and the service good, the place pleasant but the food was far from Michelin standards. The food presentation was absurd (asparagus heads cut in four) and the explanations too long (four sorts of bread,... More

Here is a review that I wish could have been better, because based on what I saw, I have no reason to believe Il Convivio can't be excellent. But, it seems probable that I had the misfortune to visit in the wake of a sudden change in staff, with results that can't be ignored. So for those reading this, my... More

We had an excellent dinner last night. Excellent, because not only the food was perfect, also the service and atmosphere is just great to make your evening memorable. We took the six course tasting menu including wine. You will get one surprise after the other. Memorable was the pizza and bacon ice cream before desert. Ask the helpful waiters with... More

Food This was definitely a case of style over substance. The quality of the food was poor, it lacked flavour and the textures were not good. The presentation was as you would expect, but the food quality let the place down, it was bland and no flavours married well. I definitely had better food in Rome at much cheaper places,... More

We went here after seeing so many great reviews in Frommers, Fodors, etc. Was very disappointed. Location next to impossible to find, atmosphere boring but elegant, our antipasti was ok, but the entries were awful for an American palate. My dates sea bass dish came out raw and my seafood stew had a whole baby octopus in it that was... More

This is a Michelin star restaurant. One expects a certain standard in food, service and details. We got none. We knew this will be a costly experience but being keen foodies we looked forward to a special evening. It was special- in every bad way. Priceless menu for ladies is so out. So is the attitude of letting the male... More

We celebrated my husband's birthday at Il Convivio in January and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. The restaurant has a slightly old-fashioned, refined feel (as reflected in the prices) making it the perfect venue for a romantic, intimate dinner rather than somewhere to kick back with a large group of friends for a rowdy night. We went for... More
