We went there for dinner and I order the skirt steak. It was really delicious. It was cooked to perfection. I think that's the first time I ate all my dinner and no doggie bag.

Convito is an unusual place in that it has a large deli area with luscious ready to go salads and meals. At the same time it is a warm, elegant restaurant that serves fine meals at lunch and dinner. We have been there several times and always been very pleased. It has been our "go to" place for special occasions.

This is a place that's hard not to like. Everything we had was very good. The menu is pretty straight forward, simple preparations and very fresh. Service is good. Parking easy in the mall lot.

We have frequented this restaurant for a myriad of reasons - it is great for an intimate celebration dinner, a larger group dinner, and a family dinner out. The food is excellent, and always varying based on seasonal and locally available ingredients. Meals with young kids have always been possible here, but don't think of it at all as a... More

Convito Cafe and Market has been around forever ... as they say reputation increases, quality overall declines. Food is just okay - nothing to write home about and since it is Italian it could easily be much better...service that day was worse than dreadful which I couldn't imagine. Server knocked my sister's setup on the floor - said she would... More

We are so sorry for your experience at Convito. We take reviews very seriously, and did take action when you reviewed in October. Our servers should not be careless about coffee drips, and service details. We have met with everyone regarding this. Our Italian food is quite refined, as the owner traveled to Italy almost 100 times. She has a... More

After discovering this great little restaurant, we returned for two lunchtime visits with another couple visiting Chicago from Ireland. A third visit with our resident daughter (Glenview) completed a delightful fortnight stay in Winnetka, a pleasant 2-mile stroll from our accommodation along Sheridan Drive. There were rave reviews for each of the menu items selected. Check out their web site... More

We had a wonderful lunch and couldn't have asked for better ! The daily specials were excellent (all 3 of us tried one) and there was plenty to share. The food was fresh and delicious, not overpowering in any way, with subtle and complex tastes. We didn't have wine at our table but noticed those who did had generous portions... More

Had lunch here and the food was good. They also have a deli where you can get a variety italian dishes and salads. There is also a little shop connected to it where you can get wine and snacks. The lunch menu had a variety of different items including salads, soups, sandwiches and such. I did feel that for a... More

Bright and inviting restaurant with a beautiful display of food to go....but we were happy to sit and enjoy a delightful brunch. We started with perfect beignets and am still dreaming about the Lemon Ricotta pancakes...perfect in every way. The Breakfast sampler was another hit...but we genuinely enjoyed it all. Service was friendly and efficient. A big hit with us!
