I've been here twice and the food is always great here. The staff is quick and attentive. Artichoke and octopus are great to start and then the ravioli with the duck ragú sauce is to die for!

A lovely little restaurant. Very cozy and intimate. It was my birthday and we got a nice little table by the window. We ordered a bottle of cava and the waiter, after checking, regretfully informed us they were out. He recommended a more expensive bottle,...More

I really don't recall specifically but I don't think they do. But even though I like a martini if I am dining out, this was such a good experience that the next time I am in NYC and in the same area, I am sure I will go back.

Carlo & Michelle Pulixi opened Convivium Osteria in November 2000. Revered as one of the most romantic and authentic restaurants in New York, our cuisine and wine reflect a love for Italian tradition. Attention to details comes first, like where our ingredients come from, the homemade pasta we make daily, the house-baked desserts that Michelle prepares. We only use meat from naturally raised animals and we buy our fruit and produce from local farmers, whenever possible. On our menu, you will find traditional dishes like Carciofo alla Romana and Gnudi di spinaci and ricotta di pecora with asiago fondue, or a grilled baby octopus and whole roasted seabass, pan-roasted sausage stuffed quail with figs and a port wine reduction or our pinenut crusted rack of lamb. We cater private events in our romantic wine cellar. It is our love for socializing, food and wine that inspired our ideas for Convivium, a lodging for purity and honesty in what we do, what we eat, what we see and how we live.
