Convito was one of my favorite restaurants when I lived in Chicago 20 years ago. I was excited to take my daughter back and we were not disappointed. I had the white bean soup, beet salad, and panna cotta, and she had the tagliatelle and the bread pudding. Everything was delicious and the dessert presentation was lovely. Probably my favorite...

Convito continues to rule as the go-to restaurant for our family: great food, wonderful selection of wines (pick up a bottle for the table from their retail store) and a great staff. Two dishes to call out: Pork Tenderloin and the whole wheat penne with grilled eggplant. Both are races of the family.

I had a fabulous dinner at this very special cafe/restaurant. The menu is varied, and offers many choices. I was with friends, and two of us order the evenings specials, which were definitely special. I started with the escargot--they were amazing! Highly recommend them, and they are on the regular menu. I ordered the fish from "tonight's additions" which was... More

We visited Convito Cafe for afternoon brunch. It's a well situated bistro with good outdoor seating. The salad was good, salmon was well cooked, overall enjoyable. Downside was cold bread - personal pet peeve - and we had to request it twice. Convito Cafe is convenient for those who live nearby, but not comparable in terms of selection or polish... More

Nice place I have been a customer over 35 years and have seen the quality in the carry out section go up and down with the chef's in the kitchen At present the quality is high but the white bean soup has dropped in quality

Charming setting, wonderful drinks, food, service, and last but not least - very clean! The best restrooms by far! Keep doing what you are doing. Will be coming back again soon. Thank you!

If we lived nearby we would eat at Convito's once a week. What a find. We started off with the bread that was delivered to each table. I normally don't eat foccacia as I don't care for it -- but this focaccia was extraordinary: the texture was lighter than most and flavorful without being overpowering. The house sale was to...

I love this place. My husband loves this place and my children love it. There is something on the menu for everyone! The pappardelle bolognese is outstanding, but I cannot go here without getting the mussels. I think I am a mussel connoisseur 😉 and they have by far the best in Chicago. The French onion soup is delicious. Truly,... More

I admit it. I'm biased. I've been coming here for years. And the reason is the food is constantly delicious and the environment friendly and familiar. These guys do contemporary Italian cuisine like it should be; simple, flavorful and creative. Love this place.

If they're in the mood to help you in the retail area, then you're in luck! If not, well, too bad for you if you have questions. On the restaurant side, the food is okay but overpriced for what you're having. Too much competition working harder to please for me to give this place my business.

We thank you for your feedback about Convito. Of course we apologize for the market staff not seeming to want to help, but I must say that is unusual. We pride ourselves on having LONG time employees who are super friendly and we aim to provide very custom service that other markets cannot provide. We will speak to everyone to... More
