For such a highly rated restaurant we were surprised that the food was just not great. There are so many nearby Italian restaurants that stand out compared to this spot. The service was very good, but a bit uneven. The wine was good but not great. Ambiance was lovely.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Park Slope. The menu doesn't change much over time, but the dishes are almost all quite good.

Upon entering the restaurant you are taken away from Brooklyn. The decor and ambiance in here is outstanding. The perfect place for a date or dinner with some friends. We ordered the night's special - oysters in a garlic sauce and to our disappointment not too much garlic - salt and pepper came to the rescue. The sea bass was also light in flavor. The braised artichoke however, had a wonderful sauce - great with bread! And finally our main courses redeemed the entire experience. Gnudi di Ricotta e Spinaci & the Squid Ink Linguine both melted in our mouths. Definitely a must try! Can't wait to come back.

We are so glad we picked this place for our anniversary. Family owned and run, and you can tell everyone truly cares about your experience.

*Bread and olive oil was yummy
*Grilled octopus - delicious
*Apple & cinnamon ravioli with duck ragu - exceptional
*Sardinian Pasta with Housemade Berkshire Pork Sausage in Tomato Sauce - very yummy, great flavor
*Blueberry & coconut crumble pie - perfect dessert, light but delicious

The decor is rustic and warm.

I had called the restaurant as it was my girlfriend's birthday and asked to bring a dessert with a candle. Since we stepped into the restaurant we felt completely taken somewhere in Europe. Beautiful and romantic restaurant. We were warmly welcomed and seated right away. My girlfriend and I are both foodies but there were a lot of items in the menu that we didnt know but were amazingly explained. Angel helped us choose our food and recommended their Ravioli with duck ragu and tagliatelle. We also started with a nice polpo and a selection of meats and cheeses. He also helped us choose our wine. We like big wines and he had us try a cabernet sauvignon from napa valley. (Unbelievable wine, i wish i took a picture) overall an amazing experience! My girlfriend and I will certainly return soon. Professional and knowledgeable service and romantic ambiance. Hands downs to you guys !

We took out of town parents out to dinner. They’re from California, and downstairs is NOTHING like what they have at home. There’s a wonderful table for 4 or 5 in an alcove downstairs which felt private but not isolated. The food was spectacular. We all loved everything. Service was attentive and friendly.

The restaurant didn't honor our 6:15 reservation. They told us to go to the bar a half block away and check back in at 6:30. We finally got seated at 6:50 (that was only because one the members in our group persistently asked the hostess when we could seat). We had a concert to get to at 8:00 and the restaurant was aware of this. When we ordered we were told not to order certain items on the menu because they wouldn't arrive in time. As it was - we didn't get our food until 7:35! And had no time for coffee or dessert.

It was a busy night since there was a concert at nearby Barclay Center. There were lots of people standing in the doorway and at the bar waiting, which made things a little uncomfortable.
The food was good and servers were nice but they seemed to be a little slammed busy.
I would recommend it but try it on a less busy day/time

For the location so close to Barclay's it was great and having an early reservation allowed us to be seated quite quickly. Unfortunately I really don't think the food was where it should be. Great appetizers but dry pasta and terrible lamb (crust fell right off the chops and was tough to chew)

I am so glad we finally made it here. Moved to Park Slope over a year ago and have been wanting to eat here. The food was amazing and the interior is so beautiful and cozy in winter. Took my friend for his birthday and he was really thrilled. The faro salad is incredible, as is the Sardinian pasta with the Berkshire sausage. Will definitely take other people for special occasions.

From the first prosecco to the exquisite tiramisu, the experience was terrific. The burrata with heirloom tomatoes had a perfect balance with the balsamic. The prawns were delicate and delightfully flavored. The lamb was tender and flavorful with buttery grilled vegetables and the gnudi were rich and perfectly balanced. The wine list was diverse and reasonably priced. A+ family enterprise.

My family had a wonderful dinner at Convivium on Saturday. The staff, the food, the wine, the ambiance... all wonderfully in sync for a perfect evening out. I had made a special note requesting a quiet table for my father in law when making the reservation and we were met with that note fully acknowledged and taken in hand prior to seating. Many, many thanks and we can't wait to return.

My fiancée and I celebrated our engagement at Convivium. I originally had my doubts on this restaurant based on another review. After reaching out to the restaurant on their website, the owners contacted me and we later spoke on the phone to clear things up. I appreciate that kind of response and am happy that we celebrated here.

We made reservations online and our table was ready when we arrived. The ambiance is very comforting and the staff is friendly. Inside the restaurant, you feel as though you are in an old European village. We started with an organic Montepulciano which was great across the board.

Appetizers: we started with the Octupus and the Braised Artichoke. We loved the octopus, though we would not order the artichoke on our future visits as it was a bit heavy on the oil.

Pastas: we ordered the Squid Ink Linguini and the Ravioli with Peking Duck Rago. Both were amazing. The ravioli and duck together created an amazing flavor.

Dessert: we finished our wine with a generous platter of cheeses which we recommend.

Overall experience: lovely

Can't wait to go back to try other dishes.
