I have eaten at Convito for two decades, lunches, brunches, dinners, holiday meals (even when it was Betisse and Convito was in another location).

I've been coming to Convito Cafe and Market for years, and its menu of light and fresh comfort foods (quiche, salads, sandwiches, soups, and lighter entrees) is seasonal and reliably delicious. Many of the menu items are also on offer in the Italian delicatessen in the front half of the space (the takeout is great and convenient if you're traveling... More

There have a great variety on their menu including esgarcot! I love restaurants that add a bit of flair into their menu. I had the duck breast with leek risotto and it was awesome. However, don't try their mojito! Yuck, they should take that off the menu. Stick to the good Parisian food and wine.

Prepared food is what this place is about, especially pastas and pot roast. It is sometime even great depending on who is in charge in the kitchen. The outdoor patio is very nice to eat in the summer but the dishes served and the service are mediocre at best.

My husband brought me here for my birthday, thinking that it would be a nice intimate dinner. Unfortunately I ordered the whitefish. The portion could not have been more than 3 ounces. It was not worth the price. The service was inattentive. I would not return.

Popped in after shopping, early on a Monday evening. Not many tables occupied when we arrived, but quite a few were by mid-meal. Convito is cheerfully schizophrenic about whether it is French or Italian, offering touches of both sometimes in the same menu choice. For example, he rather gallic duck breast I had (excellent), was accompanied by a risotto. My... More

This is a lovely cafe for lunch or dinner. The staff are always friendly and will do their best to accommodate their diners. We would often go for lunch on the weekend or for dinner on a hot summer's evening. The food is always good and they have a wide variety of wines and beers. The only thing I wish... More

Convito Café is situated in the middle of leafy residential district in Wilmette and has been a fixture here at the No Man's Land mall for generations. I must say, the food has improved over the years especially with regard to consistency. On any given evening, the place is very charming, being connected to a small food market and wine... More

A pleasant night with friends...for the most part. Our table's reviews were split between 2 and 3. At the high end, the service was consistent at too small table and the salmon eaters were well satisfied. Portions a little above ample. My port osso bucco was a failure. Too big, too greasy and without any tomato. Nice side of mashed... More

I have enjoyed the Italian cuisine here many times before, but this visit focused on their American fare, and the result was really good. Nothing fancy, but solid choices. A chopped salad named Nancy was meat and cheese and great flavor, while the chicken pot pie entree was delicate puff pastry and a delicious filling chock full of chicken. My... More
