Description: At Convivio, we are committed to using the freshest and highest quality ingredients we can source. Where possible, we use local, organic produce, attending the wholesale market ourselves each week so that we can hand-pick our ingredients rather than having to rely on suppliers to choose these for us. Only this way can we ensure the high quality of the ingredients we use. Our customers mean a lot to us and we want to give you the best! We also want to offer you a truly Mediterranean flavour and eating experience at Convivio. Not only do we use the best dried pasta but our ravioli is home-made and, as an Italian customer put it recently, "as good as anything you will find in Italy" Our skilled Italian pizzaiolo produces, quite simply, the tastiest, most authentic pizza. Truly mouth-watering pizzas made with freshly kneaded dough that has been stretched by hand and baked in our signature stone oven made by specialist Italian artisans. This stone oven is used to bake fresh bread every day We can reassure you that unlike bought-in bread used by many other restaurants, our bread is as fresh as it can be. It is also good for you, being free from additives and preservatives.

Reviewed 7 August 2014

We had a great meal with my parents and one year old daughter. All the staff were very family orientated. Excellent food a real choice on the menu and fantastic service, really considerate and helpful staff.

“Great service and great venue”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Great to return to this place since throwing my birthday bash here last year, as always the staff are friendly and attentive. Food was great and the wine flowed a bit to well :)
We ended up being the last ones there on a Saturday evening, however no rush for us to leave.
Hopefully it won't be a year before we are back again.

“Didnt deliver on this occasion”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

Took my visiting mother, her friend and my partner for a nice meal last night but sadly was disappointed with my food. I ordered the medaglioni de filleto alla pizzaiola. Which sadly was the blandest beef i have ever had. The sauce was a basic ragu at best and was only given life once i seasoned it and put on a garlic bread to make a pizza. As the slithers of beef i had wasn't quite enough food i had to order more.
Lovely place and the wine was nice, staff lovely. But i was hugely disappointed with that particular dish.

That being said i will still go back as i have had a wonderful meal here before (duck)
