A highly acclaimed, stunning Georgian townhouse conversion situated in the heart of Belgravia. Il Convivio has now established itself as one of the leading Italian restaurants in the capital for its outstanding and exquisite modern Italian cuisine. Loved for its discretion by the affluent locals and praised by the critics for the sheer talent of the Head Chef, Cedric Neri.
The private dining room offers corporate and individual clients a perfect and exclusive setting for entertaining. The large antique table seats up to 14 and a small adjacent lounge area features sofas and a coffee table for relaxing before and after your meal.
The name Il Convivio actually comes from the Italian poet Dante. The name of the restaurant literally translates as a meeting over food and drink of anti-establishment intellectual philosophers of the Dante era. If you don’t need a literal translation, ‘banquet’ will do nicely.
The restaurant has a conservatory at the back for al fresco dining with the advantage of an electric roof to enable year round dining. The conservatory features cedar wood decking and the theme continues into the restaurant with limestone and cedar wood panels. Beautiful, deep red walls are embossed with words taken from Dante’s poetry lending an air of romanticism to this elegantly styled restaurant.
