Lovely hidden restaurant, in Tudor City Place, up from the UN building, quiet, shady and elegant. Excelent food and great value for money with the lunch offer ($32) but do not go if you are starving or you will not be satisfied, be warned!

"Out of the way" and "hidden" but only ten minutes walk from Grand Central - just turn east instead of west onto 42nd Street . A very comfortable and stylish room, spacious with very enthusiastic, friendly and helpful staff (from telephone booking through to the bill). Superb food (the pork ragu one of the best pasta dishes we've tasted, mains of striped bass and flatiron steak excellent, a delicious chocolate cake desert). With lunch a fixed $32 dollars for two courses and $44 for three, and with some good and (by New York/ US standards at least) reasonably priced wines, exceptional value for a place of this standard

The restaurant has a very fine location in a small park and in a very nice building on a small hill over streets. Sitting on a restaurant's outdoor terrace amidst the park you can forget about the noise, hustle and bustle, and even New York itself (in all bad meanings of this word). The service is much better than in 5 previous Michelin-starred restaurants, the food - is better. It's a good place to relax. However, it's not a place to remember of (though most of NY restaurants are doomed to be deleted from your notebook right after the visit). Also I would never recommend to sit inside (too gloomy and hot).

The restaurant is nicely located in a quit street above 42nd St. across from the UN.
The décor of the restaurant is pleasant and not intruding and as apposed to other restaurants in NY you can actually hear each other when you talk. The service was good and the list of wines is impressive. The manu can accommodate meat lovers as well as vegetarians. For starters is a good ideas to share some of the small plates “sfizi” try the sardines from the antipasti menu. The fish were great, fresh and with an unusual and tasty sauce. The deserts arte also interesting and worth trying. RSTMN 8/10

My husband and I spent a lovely, leisurely evening sharing and enjoying selections from the Prix Fixe menu at Convivio while vacationing in NY last week. The food, the wine, the experience was all 5 star delicious. We would definitely go back. Thanks to our waiter, Steven, for giving us the wonderful wine suggestion and then the label to take home and shop with. Alas, I have not found an alternate location to get my fix of sour cherry gelato as yet.
