Food and Wine were amazing!!! Everytime we go there there is always something new on the menu to try..
A group of us were out celebrating a birthday and we had a great time. Two of is chose the beef tenderloin, one the bouillabaisse and the other got the pappardelle bolognesse. All were superb per our reports and hums. My tenderloin was the best meat fish I’d had in a long while. Our wine choice was also excellent, but the wine list was a bit small. Looking forward to visit again!
Convito is a great place to lunch with friends. Good food, great service and easy parking all make for an easy and enjoyable outing. The quiche is spectacular and so is the French Onion Soup! Great place!
Fun place to lunch with girlfriends
Valentine’s Day. Food came out way too quick. Main Course before salad was even done. Recommended a terrible wine that I believe was done without any knowledge.
Great dinner as always.
Great as usual. Always reliably very good food and service!
The food was delicious and service top notch! Full bar and great wine list.
Wonderful homey ambiance and atmosphere and very tasty food. Will definitely return
Good food and great service!
Convito seems to be so-so these days. Everything we ordered seemed to have been sitting around for a while, with a tell-tale film over the sauces. The soup was good but not hot. The pasta did not seem to be freshly sauced. The dessert, a concoction of rhubarb (hardly any of it to taste), strawberries, and, of all things, spumoni, was very disappointing. Who wants a cobbler soggy with melted ice cream? The dish lacked everything, including visual appeal. Service was sluggish, and the restaurant was nearly empty, maybe 6 tables on a Wednesday night. It will be a while before we go back to this place, where we've gone for many, many years. Not what it used to be. On the good side, it is one of Wilmette's most beautiful places to have lunch or dinner. Lunch is generally better than dinner. We've seldom been so thoroughly disappointed in dinner at Convito as we were with this one.
Never disappoints! Food is always fresh and delicious, along with a great vibe! Make sure to stop by their deli inside restaurant to pick up fresh pasta dishes and sides to take home! :)
We experienced just what we have come to expect at Convito: excellent food and service, pleasant environment, conversation-friendly.
Tasty delicious food with great presentation-whitefish and special of the day chianti braised pot roast! We were celebrating Birthday - the chocolate fondant was amazing! Service was friendly and attentive!
Long time favorite! Always excellent food and service.
Great lunch menu. The salmon entree was outstanding, perfectly cooked (they ask you for your preference on doneness), and the salad trio entree was delicious and the flavors of the different salads all complemented each other. The service was consistently attentive and, bravo, the iced tea refills always arrived before our glasses were empty. Convito also has a market within/next to the restaurant which offers numerous prepared meal items all of which look like they could be quite tasty and worth a try on a subsequent visit.
Food was fantastic. Great experience!
The food and service was wonderful but the room is way too noisy. Conversation at the table was almost impossible.
We enjoyed lunch at Convito with long time friends and celebrated a Birthday too while dining on the sunny porch area. The quiche is the Best Ever and the BLT with Avocado is very good too, others enjoyed smoked salmon BLT and a salad. Everyone had a fabulous time!
Quaint, cozy, charming, delicious. The pappardelle bolognese is phenomenal. The soups remind you of your grandma's, but better. And try not to by something in the attached little store; I dare you.
The new chef keeps improving the menu. Service is excellent. Just a nice bistro-like experience.
Like the atmosphere of Convito, the food is fresh and the service is good. They do not have a very large menu which is a plus, for me.
Getting push pushed out at 9:30ish on a Saturday night a bit frustrating but good food and nice neighborhood location.
Excellent as always! Delicious comfort food. Friendly & professional service, warm festive atmosphere. Also we couldn’t decide what to take home from their deli case in a market, everything looked great.
Love this place. Our meals (BLT sandwich, hamburger, 4 cheese fettuccine, crepe & quiche of the day were outstanding! Festive decoration. Polite and educated service. Great take out area in the market .We will be back!
Family favorite! We love the charm inside and out only to be outdone by authentic flavorful dishes.
excellent food and service and we enjoyed the atmosphere as well as the deli
We’ve been a customer many times over last five years. This time the food was notably disappointing uniformly lacking in flavor.
We enjoyed a wonderful Birthday celebration luncheon with long time friends. The lunch was terrific and the Crème Brule is "THE BEST" ! Nice place! Will be going back.
Plus they have a deli as well as frozen options that are great for taking home for dinner.
Extremely disappointed in service, how the reservation was handled and the dinner. See below for details.
