Made a date in my diary for the jazz evening at convivio and was not disappointed. Having eaten at almost all the restaurants in Chester and new openings, this is a regular venue for me, and about as authentic as you can get in the UK as a quality Italian. It's a beautiful building. I like it particularly also for:... More

Walked in with a reservation to see it was very quiet for a Saturday evening. Staff polite enough, some clearly in training. Observed different levels of greeting depending on who walked through the door, which we found to be strange. Waiter was clearly not Italian but was attempting an Italian accent and some Italian phrases which was deeply cringe-worthy and... More

I had the Smoked Salmon and Pasta which was so tasty, and just enough for lunch, more than I would normally have, when we go to Chester again we will certainly go there again/

The fact the restaurant was empty on a Friday, just our table and two others probably says it all. My food was good, however half the table were not really impressed and where there was criticism it was lack of flavour. Half thought it was ok, half did not, no one had a brilliant main. The starters platters though where... More

We had booked this restaurant for a special occasion and booked online. We received the booking confirmation and turned up 5 minutes before our booking to find that the restaurant was in fact closed. It was pitch black with no sign on the door to indicate why they were closed. We checked their Facebook page, twitter and website and there... More

Popped in for lunch whilst out in Chester after a recommendation. The food was absolutely faultless, traditional italian food all made from scratch. The lunch time menu was great value for money, both myself and my partner had a pasta dish each and shared a pizza and could see the chefs had handmade the dough bases! Service was fantastic, we...

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.
