Beautiful place. Large wall of wine. Stumbled across it and it was full but they made room for us. Food we had was great....pasta with fava beans, pine nuts and fish roe. , pizza with tuna and artichokes and great wine. Wonderful. Menu looked wonderful but too full to try more. Ask for the peppered oil if you like spicy...excellent.

We went there for lunch and didn't test the chef too much as we both had Pizzas but they were great. Nice venue, friendly and helpful staff and other than me and my wife, everyone eating there (it was full) appeared to be local - a good sign in itself. Reccomended.

Chic interiors, friendly staff and great food. Nothing was too pretentious like in other Milano restaurants. The best dishes were seafood and pasta, and the warm bread at the start of our meal went down too quickly. Prosecco was deliciously crisp and reasonably priced. If near the Duomo I'd recommend visiting for a chic dinner.

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

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.
