Server did not know anything about meat entrees. Plus, hostess did not find our Open Table reservation, which signaled to Open Table that we were “no shows”. Kitchen people did fine. Service people were not tuned in. Not sure we will return. There are a lot of good Italian restaurants out there with good food and impeccable service.

Convivio consistently serves up delicious food. Service is always excellent. I think the food here is the best Italian in the Indianapolis area.

We had never been to this restaurant, and based on the reviews, maybe we expected too much. We sat outside and really enjoyed that, but thought the food was just average.

While service and presentation was very good, the food was mediocre. Our party of 4 sat on the patio and there was a cigar smoker who evidently was asked to stop, but a third of our time there we had strong hiffs of cigar. Salad was nothing special. Fish special was on the dry side, asparagus limp under it. Grilled potatoes were the best part. I had dessert cake and it was a little dry also. OH! But the bread and oil was very good. For the price I expected that the food would be better. We may try them again but I doubt it.

It’s one of our favorite restaurants. We’ve been several times. So much in fact, the staff generally recognizes us. This reservation was to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary, our waitress told us that they were short a waitress but wasn’t apologetic about anything. No mention of out anniversary, though when I made the reservation I requested a little something extra. I understand it wasn’t the norm but we were looking for a special night, not just a regular night out. Other than that it was great, the food is superb. Always feel like we’re back in Tuscany when we eat there.

I had been to Convivio for lunch and was impressed with everything, from the ambiance, the food and the service. I was not disappointed when we visited for dinner. My husband had not been before and was immediately impressed with the menu and wine list!
We dined in the bar area, which we prefer, and felt the convivial atmosphere. You are our new go to Italian restaurant and will recommend that our friends do the same.

We had a party of 8 reservation on Saturday for our monthly Supper Club outing. We arrived early to the bar and had a cocktail. I wish I knew the bartender's name because she made the BEST Old Fashioned I have had in a restaurant/bar setting. Our table was ready on time and after we were seated we were instantly greeted by our waiter, Usher. If you go to Convivio, ask for him. He was WONDERFUL! So knowledgeable on the menu items, was really engaging with our party. He didn't rush us but yet we never had to wait for anything. We've been doing this Supper Club thing since 2012 and Convivio is in the top 2 of establishments we've visited. HIGHLY recommend. A job very well done. Two Thumbs Up from our crew! :)

We ate dinner at Convivo May 11. I especially love their homemade gluten friendly pasta with the Convivo red pepper sauce. Their special was a salmon dish that is now my husbands favorite. We asked the chef if they could please add it to their regular menu.

Covivio never fails to deliver! We’ve dined with family ages 20 months to 93 years, and everyone is always happy!
The food is outstanding, authentic, and presented in lovely Italian bistro fashion.
The wine list is complete, satisfying a range of tastes and budgets.
Management, wait staff and kitchen staff are masters at providing a welcoming and palate-pleasing experience every time!

The server was great, the 2 hostesses were not. Upon our arrival, they looked annoyed that we were early. I apologized and explained we were out and about so we came but take their time. There was no response, just a side smile and she looked away. The entrance is small so they told, not asked, told us to go outside and wait. We waited over 30 mins. The server was excellent. The food came out quick and hot but was very greasy. We are not the type of people to make a fuss so we dealt with it and decided not to go back.

Our whole experience was fantastic. Our server Julie was great. Beyond answering questions and giving recommendations, we had a legitimately fun conversation. The food was seriously amazing. All of it. We had eggplant bruschetta, two delicious pasta dishes and such a good chocolate cake for dessert. They also had an extensive wine list. I highly recommend this place for a date or special occasion.
