Convito Café & Market

Valentine’s at Convito
Italy vs France

February 1 4- 18, 2018

Convito Gourmet Gift

For many years we had two restaurants in the Plaza – Convito Italiano and Betise, a bistro. Because the Convito building needed to be rebuilt, we decided to move our trattoria over to Betise in 2007 and combined the two – renaming it Convito Café & Market.

That is the reason our menus reflect both
French Bistro and Italian Trattoria fare.

Convito Gourmet Gift

We would like to salute our two favorite countries and their cuisine this Valentine’s Day. Are there two better countries to reflect romance and love – the message of Valentine’s Day?
Our specials offer you a choice from each.
