In Chester for the day, called in for lunch after reading the offer board outside. Beautiful building, welcoming staff & plenty of tables. Offer was to sample items from the new menu & we were told they were small portions hence the price. Plenty of choice & the size was more than adequate for lunch time. I had a pizza... More

We ordered a calzone and a carbonara, the sausage in the calzone was nice however apart from that it was pretty average. The carbonara spaghetti was undercooked and the taste was a bit off. With restaurants like Carluccio's doing excellent Italian food I don't see why I would return to Convivio other than to visit their well stocked & lovey... More

We had a very pleasant meal one Thursday evening whilst on an over night stay in Chester. The building is very impressive and the inside didn't disappoint. The Restaurant was very quiet, however staff were very attentive and sociable. There was a reasonable choice of courses, and the food was nice. I wouldn't go out of my way to revisit... More

Lovely staff very welcoming. Lovely restaurant which felt quite opulent. The food is nice not outstanding but we all enjoyed our meals. A variety of starters - the scallops were gorgeous My son loved his calzone and my mixed meats was good as well. Enjoyed it and would go again.

This lovely restaurant is worthy of its name. Friendly staff who manage to be professional and fun. Great menu and wine list. The food was exactly what it said it would be and the children's small size pizzas were a great idea. The building itself is beautiful. With its high ceilings and wooden panels it feels grand and cosy at... More

Called last week. It was fairly quiet as it was midweek but I'd book if visiting at the weekend. Such a beautiful old building. Lovely decor and nice open kitchen area....I like watching the chefs cooking. Relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff. Our meals were all great and the desserts were delicious (especially the cheescake)! Try the selection of mini desserts... More

What a lovely atmosphere. Very friendly staff and lovely food. Finished the evening with cocktails in the upstairs lounge. Made our special occasion extra special. Will definitely go again and recommend it.

Visited on Sunday for family birthday celebration, the food was mouthwatering and the service was good without being obtrusive. I had fillet steak with sautéed potatoes in a peppercorn sauce which was excellent. There was a good selection of desserts which were delicious. Will definitely return.

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.
