We went there second time during out last visit to San Miniato this month. As good as 2 years ago. We were sitting outside, service was very attentive and could not be faulted. Food was delicious, particularly the truffle dishes.

We stumbled on Il Convivo tonight, and just followed some road signs to find somewhere to eat. We went down the track and we weren't even sure the restaurant was open, it is really tucked away. We were made very welcome and our hosts explained they were trying out a fixed menu on a Tues night, it was superb. We... More

Staying in Cusignano we decided on recommendation that it was a good idea to visit Il Convio. We expected the usual good standard of Tuscan food and little else. My partner realised just how much she enjoys the humble truffle when presented with a dish with duck, truffles and tagliatelle which was a savoury delight. My eyes however were drawn... More

although this was deserted when we arrived, we had a wander around the pleasant gardens, and then there were signs of life. Once it opened up it was delightful. My friend had a chestnutty starter, and I had a platter of assorted antipasti, then he had steak and I had sea bass with Mediterranean vegetables. no room for dessert! the... More

checking out Il convio as one of the best in San Miniato we arrived at 18:30 hrs on sunday, Oct 12th 2014. Looking forward to a Tuscan dinner we were pleased to see 2 other guests and staff around. After making ourselves known by gesture there was no reaction of any sort by the staff members hanging around. After waiting... More

Absolutely hidden gem. Initial rough start due to lack of parking in the town meant we stumbled on a treat. Stefano was wonderful (give him a minute to warm up) and we had excellent slow cooked pork as well as very good pizza (rare to get great. Tuscan food and pizza in the same place). So good we went back... More

But.. When we came - at 19:25 - we were met by ungracious waiter (or owner??) and suspended -... More

The first thing that a guest notes is the park surrounding the restaraunt: lawns of astounding width, exhuberant trees, a small stream nearby. Second, the service is kind even if a bit slow...however, the landscape and the overall atmosphere help to make pleasant the wait for the following dishes Last but not least the food: we were three and we...
