With more than a whiff of Zafferano about it, Pimlico's newest Italian restaurant is sophisticated, and the cuisine simply superb; just what one might expect from a restaurant that's part of the Etrusca group. This Belgravia townhouse has been redone in the classic smart Italian style with wooden floors, simple room plan with an exposed brick wall, Conran furniture and muted lighting. There's also a private dining room and a conservatory area with a retractable roof at the rear of the restaurant. You won't find any cheap trattoria fare here. Il Convivio neither strives for regional authenticity nor goes for the designer approach. You can expect modern Italian conventional dishes like truffle risotto, mozzarella in prosciutto, and sweetbreads alongside stranger forays such as truffle ice cream at the II Convivio. The wine list at this place also has the potential to keep you busy for hours.
