Uno degli indirizzi storici della ristorazione capitolina di qualità, una famiglia che si è dedicata anima e corpo a questo progetto, fino ad ottenere i più ambiti riconoscimenti dalla critica nazionale ed internazionale. Il Convivio Troiani, sito in via Vicolo dei Soldati, a breve distanza dal Lungotevere e dal ponte Umberto I, ha una sala molto elegante, arredi ricercati e pezzi d’antiquariato, un candido tovagliato bianco ed una mise en place impeccabile. Lo chef, Angelo Troiani, è anche docente presso una scuola di cucina e può vantare un gran numero di allievi che hanno successivamente aperto altri locali di successo.
Un ristorante la cui filosofia unisce tradizione, modernità e naturalezza e che da naturalmente spazio ad una cucina di alto livello, un sunto di tecnica, qualità delle materie prime e ricerca di abbinamenti e consistenze. Molti dei prodotti portati in tavola sono realizzati dalla cucina del Convivio, dal pane preparato con farine biologiche alla pasta fresca stesa al matterello. L’approvvigionamento presso piccoli produttori di ciò che serve consente di offrire ai clienti cibi sani, gustosi e territoriali, perché mangiar bene vuol dire anche mangiar sano.
Tra i piatti icona dello chef ci sono sicuramente il “Fiore di zucca ripieno di ricotta, guanciale croccante, pesca, menta e profumo di tartufo bianco”, gli Spaghetti “Felicetti” ajo e ojo, peperoncino, pecorino romano, gamberi rossi, limone, menta e scaglie di mandorle (che ho anche avuto modo di preparare in prima persona nel corso di una lezione di cucina con lo chef), i “Pesci, molluschi e crostacei in cocotte di rame con peperoni” ed il dessert “Limone, liquirizia e fior di latte”.

Very pretentious. We didn’t have one dish that was amazing which you would expect for the price. Every thing I had was overly salted.
The food was good for the most part and there were some especially good/interesting dishes. We also got good wine recommendations. I read that this restaurant was cozy and highly rated online. That is why I wanted to go. This restaurant is not cozy by any means. I booked our reservation using this app and did not realize that it was a Michelin Star restaurant. I typically would dress much nicer at home or traveling for work for a nicer dinner, but I did not pack any blazers, slacks, or suits since I am traveling with a backpack for two weeks. I also would not have chosen to go to restaurant this stuffy since I did not have the appropriate clothing, but maybe cozy means something different in Italy. I showed up wearing all black and a collared shirt, but it was all ath-leisure attire with black leather boots. I was not dressed cheaply. In total, the outfit I was wearing cost between $900 and $1,000 US dollars, but I did not look formally dressed by any means. The restaurant staff treated my boyfriend and I like trash. We spent $550 euros there. At one point the sommelier opened a champagne bottle and sprayed it all over our table, food, and both of us. We were polite about it and we tried to make jokes about it with the sommelier, but he played it off like he had not made a major faux paz and he/the rest of the restaurant staff made no effort to rectify the situation. He never said that he was sorry. There was one staff member that was super smiley and nice who made eye contact with every seemingly nicer-dressed patron, but she would not even look at my boyfriend or I when she came to the table and she did not smile at us once. When we ordered the full tasting menu, the waiter repeatedly tried to redirect us to the cheaper six course tasting menu to the point that I became legitimately confused about what he was saying. He could not seem to comprehend that we wanted to pay full price for the full tasting menu. Additionally, both of our wine bottles were approximately 200 euros each, which I understand is on the lower end especially for a nicer place but the restaurant had a plethora of much cheaper options. The wait staff treated us poorly regardless. I had to refill my own wine glass multiple times because the wait staff would visit our table infrequently and seemingly not notice that my wine glass was empty when they did occasionally come by. At the end of the meal, even though we had been done with all courses and wine for some time, the wait staff made us wait and watch while they were quite attentive to a table of formally dressed patrons who arrived at the same time as us, get the check, pay, and leave. We thought we would be next, but the restaurant staff never came to ask us whether we wanted anything else or the check. The restaurant was literally empty and there was no one else to serve and we had been done with our food and drinks for a long time, yet we still had to flag down someone to get our check and leave. We tried patiently waiting but it got to the point that we recognized we were their lowest priority. The clientele was also very stuffy and I was noticing a lot of staring that I would return with a smile. Every single person who I smiled at would turn immediately as if I were somehow offending them by acknowledging that they were staring. It felt very negative. I know there must be some cultural differences here that are getting lost in translation, but I should have known when the sommelier sprayed champagne all over us and our food and subsequently made no effort to apologize that the wait staff basically just never wanted us there. It was a really awful experience. If you go, make sure to dress in a way that appears nicer. I hope that you will have a better experience than we did. If you are backpacking through Italy and you are looking for nice but “cozy” restaurants, I would not suggest going this place. I have never been so upset leaving a Michelin star restaurant.
A hidden gem! Everything was absolutely amazing, if we are ever in Rome again we will definitely visit again. Thank you for making my birthday one to remember!
Favorite elegant restaurant in Europe. The service is amazing and the food simply outstanding. Pricing is quite reasonable for portion and Michelin status. 100 percent recommend.
Amazing dishes that show creativity above and beyond anything that you thought was possible.
Amazing service, creative and fun cuisine. Highly recommended
I’m sure there is a better fine dining experience in the world today but I have yet to find it in my 40 years of searching for it.
All was very good!
Excellent nuveau Italian! Great for a special occasion. Not an everyday restaurant.
Excellent restaurant and service. Nice personal touch and very attentive personal. Nice combination of traditional and creative Italian cuisine.
Best it’s imposible
Over the top good.
Excellent cuisine, excellent service, excellent wine. Perfect dinner
Il Convivio Troiani exceeds in every category. One of the finest experiences we have every had.
The evening played out like a symphony. The waiter’s recommendations on the menu were spot on, and he delighted in the various choices we made. Each course was presented in a precise manner with full explanation of all the ingredients. Throughout the meal, the chef kept surprising us with flavor combinations that I would never have thought would go together but they did... splendidly! No detail was unattended in this meal. The service was impeccable without being stiff and too formal. It was worth every penny we spent. Everyone should treat themselves to a Michelin Star restaurant experience at least once, and if you do, Il Convivo Troiani is the place you should do it when in Rome.
