Came here for a hen do meal, 10 of us altogether. Gorgeous building, and I therefore expected the food to match. We had the set menu, and had to give our food choices as well as a £10 deposit each the week before. The pre-starters arrived, just two small garlic bread pizzas between 10 of us, which was just one... More

We have been to convivio three times . The first was superb hence the second visit. The second visit was a poor experience but we decided that give it a while (18 months) and see if things had improved. It hadn't. The building is beautiful but the food was so bland it's not worth me going in to detail about... More

We have been served different plates like the italian way to eat : antipasti, pasti and main course. Nothing to say except that the main was perhaps simple, without any research. Parking might be difficult because the restaurant is placed along the street. No opinion about the price because I was a guest

Poor food asked for 3 different wines did not have them. Tried it the time before it was poor but wanted to come back to give it a second chance. Definitely won't be coming back. This could be a amazing place what a shame.

Visited here on a Saturday night and generally enjoyed the visit. The atmosphere is pleasant and we found the staff really helpful and nice. However , I found my fish main to be bland and i didn't really enjoy it. Also the food arrived REALLY quickly and there was literally no gap between courses meaning we felt quite rushed.

Good quality food with high class service but be prepared for a long wait between courses, this suited us fine. Very nice setting in a restored historical building. One small issue, no decaff coffee !!!

Visited here with Friends on Saturday night, very friendly and welcoming from the minute we walked in till we finished. We all enjoyed our meals. The building is lovely. Will definitely be returning again when we next visit Chester.

Food order wasn't as per menu, and the desert was terrible. When the waiter enquired as to why the final dish was almost completely untouched I gave feedback, to which there was no apology or offer of replacement, merely a shrug of the shoulders. To top this rather drab valentines experience, they tried to Bill us with extras and not... More

Staff at this hotel are brilliant in all of the bars and top class restaurants drinks a little expensive but did not spoil the trip

At Convivio, we are committed to using the freshest and highest quality ingredients we can source. Where possible, we use local, organic produce, attending the wholesale market ourselves each week so that we can hand-pick our ingredients rather than having to rely on suppliers to choose these for us. Only this way can we ensure the high quality of the ingredients we use. Our customers mean a lot to us and we want to give you the best! We also want to offer you a truly Mediterranean flavour and eating experience at Convivio. Not only do we use the best dried pasta but our ravioli is home-made and, as an Italian customer put it recently, "as good as anything you will find in Italy" Our skilled Italian pizzaiolo produces, quite simply, the tastiest, most authentic pizza. Truly mouth-watering pizzas made with freshly kneaded dough that has been stretched by hand and baked in our signature stone oven made by specialist Italian artisans. This stone oven is used to bake fresh bread every day We can reassure you that unlike bought-in bread used by many other restaurants, our bread is as fresh as it can be. It is also good for you, being free from additives and preservatives.
