Not exactly a picturesque view on a parking lot, but hey!! it's about the food, right!! Anyway, we had the grilled veggies and the basque... read more

This a beautiful restaurant and market for all things Italian. Went there on a Thursday nite before a free concert in their mall parking lot. Excellent Italian food, served in a classy setting. You can't go wrong.

I've enjoyed countless lunches here over the years and have never once had a bad meal or been disappointed. The food is always artistically presented, high quality, absolutely delicious. The service is way above average, even on busy days. I just love that you can eat outside, on a sunny, enclosed porch or next to a fireplace. I generally order... More

I have eaten at Convito for two decades, lunches, brunches, dinners, holiday meals (even when it was Betisse and Convito was in another location). The food is always pretty high quality (though not amazingly innovative or off the charts taste-wise), the service fast and thorough, and the environment bistro- like. The seating area (even with the outside area in warmer... More

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
