We stumbled upon this place. Our taxi dropped us a few doors away and the place we had booked looked pretty poor, pretty tacky so we did not go in. We wanted better and as luck would have it, we turned to walk away and stumbled across Convivium. Good move. Convivium is classy - well-dressed staff in dark brown, nicely... More

Oliver served us. He has great english and is enthusiast about making customers feel welcome. I had the steak Costello. Great charcoal. Tuna was great. Prawns was good. Ossi bucco was good. Wine montepulciano. Good. Atmospheric! I'd recommend!

It was our 4th visit to the restaurant and the worst one of all. We won't go back again. We really enjoyed it the first time and I left a nice review here but since then with every visit it was getting worse. This time we really didn't enjoy the food and our romantic evening was kind of destroyed because... More

Had an ordinary meal here. Pleasant setting. Patrons seemed to be more locals than tourists. Risotto was fair. Milanese cutlet tasted like cardboard. Potatoes were cold. Artichoke had been deep fried and tasted bland. Service was fine. After eating in the regions, this was a big let down. More like a fast food bar than a quality restaurant.

Pasta made fresh daily. Not touristy. Excellent service. All meal components were superb. Would highly recommend to anyone staying in the neighborhood.

Good place for meat in Milan. We've been here once but enjoyed the atmosphere and the steaks. Everything around us looked great as well. This place is on the more formal side. If you want to have a nice dinner, we recommend it.

This is a trendy restaurant in one of the best areas of Milan to go out for dinner. The menu is typical Italian, but presents an immense variety of dishes (they have a menu in English, but it does not include the day's specials, so make sure you ask what these are as most waiters speak English). The parma ham... More

Nice restaurant in Brera that serves a variety of typical Italian cuisine. The pizza "Convivium" is amazing and should be considered as one of the best pizzas in Milan!

This Resaurant has great food, lovely atmosphere, and good service. The night we were there it was really busy and full of locals. The food was above average, the sword fish was excellent. Our waitress was extremely efficient and the prices were fair. I would definitely check out Convivium if you are in Milan.
