Literally. A nice quiet neighborhood Italian eaty with good food and service. Nothing fancy or intimidating but being a nice cozy restaurant is just about enough.

My wife and I met a friend for lunch today. We love this restaurant for the combination of great food, friendly staff and the the fact that the tables are nicely spaced so that one can chat comfortably.

Birthday night at Convivio after Chelsea Flower Show. Food really mediocre, insipid and tasteless, nothing special, nothing imaginative. Very very middle of the road. Even bread and wine really average. Service was friendly at least.More
