Covino was established in 2013 after a trip in Paris, inspired by the cozy and warm atmosphere of French bistros.
Andrea Lorenzon and Cesare Benelli, long-time owner of the restaurant Al Covo, shared the initial idea and launched the project, thus starting up the place.
At CoVino, we proudly use daily Slow-Food products with the aim of supporting local, small-scale producers that contribute with their high-quality and traditional supplies. Consequently, we seek high standards for our ingredients; for instance, our fishes, herbs, vegetables and spices come from the Rialto market and follow their seasonal trends.
We always update a wine-list of 100 different wines: they are all natural and linked to the terroir. The vineyards are placed in their typical production areas and the means of production are respectful of nature. We like to consider them “human” wines because they enhance the personality of producers and convey their philosophy.
My name is Andrea Lorenzon and I followed my father’s Mauro footsteps. In his restaurant La Mascareta, I had the chance to assimilate and share the passion for natural and easily digestible wines, especially for those which are expression of their territory and of the work of their strong artisans.
After experiences with Chef Giorgio in his Locanda Locatelli in London, with Gianni Bonaccorsi at Il Ridotto and with the Alajmo family, I decided to put all my efforts in a genuine and autenthic restuarant: CoVino.
il locale del cuore, per sentirsi come a casa.
It’s always a pleasure to eat at CoVino. Such a warm welcome, an interesting and unusual menu and great wine list at a very reasonable cost for such an enjoyable dining experience.
Merci pour votre accueil et votre cuisine ... Merci de garder ouvert votre restaurant en ces temps difficiles dont nous espérons tous voir la fin prochaine...
Anche nei limiti di un menu molto breve (che è tutt’altro che un limite, forse anzi un modo per dare spazio sempre a nuovi eroi al suo interno), riescono a far risaltare le eccellenze della laguna e dell’entroterra Veneto. Servizio super gentile e preparato, con una carta di vini naturali molto ricca ed interessante. P.s. Non lo dirò a mia nonna, ma le trippe mangiare da CoVino sono quasi più buone delle sue.
Pranzare in questo piccolo ma affascinante locale a Venezia rappresenta un 'esperienza piacevole non solo per il palato ma anche per le aspettative: la continua ricerca di ricette con i prodotti del territorio, la cantina con etichette di vini poco conosciute ma non per questo di qualità inferiore ai loghi più famosi, ne fanno una meta che non può essere evitata nella città più bella del mondo...e lo dico con la consapevolezza che essendoil locale piccolino, rischio di compromettermi le future visite.
Atmosfera accogliente, esperienza coinvolgente. Sicuramente da ripetere
Super Atmosphäre, perfekt, geniales Essen slowfood
Great food, vibe and service! Would recommand the restaurant to everyone visiting venice!
Des plats délicieux, et un moment extrêmement convivial
I had an excellent experience - the food was delightful and everything was reasonably priced. Staff were friendly but it was hard not to notice that our table received less staff interaction than other tables received. For example, our meals were dropped off without explanation, whereas other tables received an explanation of the dish and its ingredients. I think this might have been unintentional but I noticed it. My only other comment is: please accept American Express cards. I would return if you took this credit card, because on the whole, the food was delicious and staff were friendly.
A memorable lunch; delicious dishes and an exceptional wine. An additional bonus: from our table we had the pleasure of a theatrical performance, the chef doing her magic creating those wonderful dishes.
Amazing food, amazing wines and amazing service!!! Cant Wait to come back to Venice and taste again this wonderful dishes!
Sehr schönes Lokal, tolle Stimmung, super Essen und sehr freundliches Personal
Ambiente intimo e raccolto, estremamente informale ma ricercato
we enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and the very attentive service: best dining experience in Venice. We will be back!
We had a great evening in this tiny restaurant. Small but excellent menu specialising in local food cooked almost in front of your eyes. Team really enjoy what they’re doing and are knowledgeable, enthusiastic and good company. Even the background music worth listening to. Book well ahead.
Food was a real slow food experience and all dishes were from good to excellent. Congratulations to the kitchen team and the performance they delivered! Wine was excellent too. We had a very small table for three people and the service was somehow „busy“. We will certainly join the Restaurant again when visiting Venice.
Ich wollte einen Wein kaufen. Ging aber nicht, keine Zeit beim Service. Ich wäre gerne länger geblieben, aber der Tischwechsel lies das nicht zu. Ich hätte auch gerne mehr Infos zu den Weinen (auch zum mitnehmen) erhalten. Aber insgesamt ein klasse Abend. Gruß Jürgen
We had an incredible time. Loved the staff, the music playlist and choice of food and wines. We can’t wait to go back when in Venice !
Third time at covino,still a wonderful place with lovely staff and great food
It was the best evening in an altogether extraordinary week in Venice. Thank you so much!
Siamo stati benissimo, ottimo il menù "Fa tì" e la degustazione di vini da abbinare. Complimenti ragazzi!
