Convivio (Italian pronunciation: [koɱˈviːvjo]; The Banquet) is a play / work written by Dante roughly between 1304 and 1307. We think of it as “Gathering” or “Congregation”. Accompanied by unparalleled servizio (service).
The inside greets you with warm colors and brick walls.
Forward and to the right is the bar, built by our own 2 owners Chef Paolo and Sommelier Giuseppe. The bar seats 14, but we suggest getting here early on a Friday or Saturday.
Straight back is the giant serving table – again built by Paolo and Giuseppe. We use it to set up food for our servers, as well as the occasional buffet for holiday’s, weddings or corporate meetings.
To the immediate right is a sectioned area with rocking chairs for relaxing with a glass of wine and some food. This space is great for watching the City of Durham move by. Come early this space fills up quick.
Our in-house sommelier Giuseppe searches for the best wines he can find for all tastes (and budgets). We only serve: Natural, Organic & Bio-Dynamic wines. Our wines flavor comes from the soil, not from some corporate cellar. Come taste and experience a whole new world of wines!
