    The food here is just alright, the appetizers were far tastier than the main courses. The atmosphere though is very cozy/ romantic, good spot for small bites & wine with a small group or the beau.

    Everything I got on their menu was superb - from the appetizers to main course. Make sure to save some room for dessert! Even without the blueberries, their Panna Cotta was delicious.

    Can't go wrong with the perfectly prepared Costoletas de borrego em crosta de pinhoes com couve-flor: Roasted pinenut crusted rack of lamb in port wine sauce with cauliflower

    from the outside it might look like a weird antiques shop, the interior is rustic and the Mediterranean-tinged Italian food is very good. Best seats in the house are on the back indoor/outdoor patio.

    Really great Italian food. Romantic as fuck for all you love birds. Tonnarelli wish shrimp tasted incredibly fresh. Gundi with spinach and ricotta would be a good appetizer split.

    The steak for two+ is always a treat. It comes with an arugula salad and rosemary roasted potatoes. One of the best octopus appetizers I've ever had. Great spot for special occasions.

    Super impressed with the cozy/rustic atmosphere, wines were great. Of the two pastas we had, both tasty, one very rich but delish. Salad special could have used less olive oil or a dash of balsamic.

    The apple and cinnamon ravioli with duck ragu is absolutely to die for. If you're attending an event at the Barclays Center, build time in your schedule to come here first, trust us.

    Rustic Mediterranean charm & cuisine in the heart of Park Slope make this place a crowd pleaser, order the Carcofi alla Romana app of braised artichokes w/ mint & garlic for a mouth watering start.

    Roasted quail, roasted ribeye for two, whole seabass, and braised rabbit are the highlights of a very solid seasonal menu, and there's octopus and polenta, too. Read more

    Best food I've had in Brooklyn. Period. Try the Mozzarella or the Octopus to start and the Rabbit is divine. Make sure to get a table on the back porch, too. Its mostly covered and very romantic.

    OMG the artichokes...fresh, full hearts. So subtle. Save your bread to dip in the mint-butter-oil. Followed by chicken livers wrapped in pancetta & I'm raving & the entrees havent even come yet!

    Chicken liver is so good that it disrupts conversation. Waiters all have strange hair, the wine list is endless. Without swinging by Convivium, an experience of Park Slope is incomplete...

    Green apple cinnamon ravioli with duck ragu is fantastic for those looking to explore, but the strozzapreti with sausage/fennel is the traditional plate that reminds you of home. Order both!

    Enjoy a candlelit Italian dinner paired with excellent wines. My one piece of advice: don't skip a course. Everything is amazing, especially the apple and cinnamon ravioli!

    This is worth my bi-weekly commute from Manhattan (for a great date and great food). The olive oil is great, especially with the artichoke appetizer. Ask for the wine special.

    Take Note: Carcofi alla Romana (braised artichokes with mint and garlic), the whole grilled fish, the steak for two, the seafood couscous (offered seasonally), and the pastas are highly recommended Read more

    Start with the apple cinnamon ravioli to share. Then move on to the rabbit and end with the vanilla panna cotta

    Always a pleasure to eat here, get the steak for two if you have company or the rack of lamb if it's just you. The decor is so rustic and elegant at the same time, it's like being in another country.

    The apple and duck ravioli, oxtail pappardelle and quail appetizer are all excellent. Delicious fresh bread and olives too.

    Owners are wonderful and friendly. Get a table in the beautiful cellar or back garden. Spinach gnocchi melts in your mouth. Michelle's desserts like the panna cotta or fig chocolate pie is delish. Read more

    The sea bass is good but they do not filet it for you. So expect to take the bones out yourself. The polenta is very good.
