Excellent meal with a deep wine list that is very reasonably priced. Apps were recommended by the server and were great. Good gem in Park Slope.

Pleasant, ambiance is very nice and distracts from the mediocre food. The burrata was tasty and so was the lasagna. Probably won’t return unless my plan is to wine more than dine

My husband and I booked a table here for an early dinner before an event at the Barclays Center. Convivium Osteria is a very charming restaurant with a rustic Italian feel. The street level dining room is small but not crowded. There are more tables downstairs in the “wine cellar”. The gentleman behind the bar greeted us at the door and took us to our table. There was one other server at the time and the two of them took care of us in tandem. The service they provided was excellent. The food was incredible. I started with a sausage- stuffed grilled quail on a bed of figs and finished with a port reduction. The sausage was a perfect contrast to the quail and the fruit and port together completed this perfect dish. Next, we shared a green apple and ricotta ravioli topped with a duck confit ragu. Again, this unique dish was the perfect blend of flavors and might be my favorite ravioli of all time. I ended my meal with a whole roasted Mediterranean Sea bass and my husband had the pistachio-crusted lamb. Both dishes were delicious. I could have spent hours here sampling dishes and drinking wine (it’s that kind of place) but we had an event to attend. The restaurant is only two blocks from the Barclays Center and I highly recommend dining here any time you find yourself in the neighborhood. Actually, I would say dinner at Convivium Osteria is worth the trip to Brooklyn.

Lovely ambience, friendly service. My only complaint is that we couldn’t use the gift card to cover the tip. This means we had to dig into our own pockets. Seems like there should be a way to use the gift card to cover the tip.

The food was excellent, as always but the music was too loud. We keep asking the waiter to lower the volume down and they did but then the music was loud again

Had dinner in the downstairs wine cellar. It was like being in the wine cellar of an old Tuscan villa. Food was very good but fell just short of being truly outstanding, although our dessert (panna cotta with a fresh blueberry sauce) was to die for. Nice reasonably priced wine list and the service was attentive without being intrusive.

Let's start with the ambiance - downstairs in the wine cellar, corner booth for privacy; quiet in an old-world setting. The food was spectacular; the octopus the most tender and flavorful I've had, the pasta perfectly cooked and duck...oh my I'm hungry again. Wonderful, charming place.

Poor customer service. Lack of enthusiasm especially considering it was Father's Day. Server seemed very annoyed by any questions we asked. Food had no taste. the restaurant was empty. Overall a very disappointing and subpar experience.

My favorite restaurant in Brooklyn. The atmosphere is extremely intimate, the food is always very good and beautifully plated, solid wine list, and a really nice place for conversations with close friends or a date.

I couldn't have chosen a better place to celebrate my daughter's graduation then Convivium. Since we walked in , we were warmly greeted. The restaurant has a really nice European vibe. Angel took care of us and introduced us to wines we never had before and they all were delicious!! Specially a white from trentino. Food was outstanding and definitely did not disappoint. Service and Food here are excellence. They know what they doing because it is an experience that no other restaurant offers you in Brooklyn.

This was my second visit and the experience was as wonderful as the first. The food was great.The welcome is cordial and warm and we sat in the window in the front. I had the farro salad with fontina and almonds and my husband had the quail stuffed with sausages and mushrooms in port wine and figs surrounded by radicchio. We each went for pasta. He was swept away with Mallereddus with pork sausage in tomato sauce with pecorino and I went back again for the Tagliatelle with beef and veal ragu. Dessert was tiramisu and flourless chocolate cake. Everything was divine. Lovely service. We will be back again and again.

Probably the finest food I ever had in NY. I had the rabbit, which was outstanding both in taste and consistency. Same for the antipasti and the dessert. They offer a rich selection of excellent vines as well.

The atmosphere in the restaurant is incredible. The decor is beautiful and feels so cozy.

However, the service was pretty disappointing. It took the server a long time to reach our table after being seated and that trend continued for the rest of the evening. He never came by to check on us so we were left to flag down other servers for their assistance.

The food was just alright—all of our dishes needed to be seasoned and arrived lukewarm. I had been here once before and decided to give it another chance thinking my first experience was a fluke. But I can’t say anything was improved, unfortunately.

Overall, not the best experience. I would love to see the dishes and service improved because it really is a beautiful restaurant.

As usual, dinner was a wonderful experience. We were given a table in the wine cellar as we requested, as we were celebrating a special occasion. Our server (whose name we unfortunately didn't get) was warm, welcoming and very professional. His wine suggestion was terrific, and the Sunday 1/2 price wine promotion is a great idea. The food was delicious as usual, and they even remembered to bring a pan cotta with a candle to celebrate my brother's birthday. (They didn't need any reminder and comped us the desert.) Overall, a memorable meal in a picturesque setting with great service. What else could you want?

Great food but the table they sat us at was far too small for a party of five and the servers kept bumping our chairs. The food was great, but service was very very slow. Go there with a small party when you're not in a rush.
