About Covino

Covino is a small owner-run wine bar & restaurant in the heart of Chester. We serve an ever-changing menu of seasonally inspired small plates, guided by the quality and provenance of ingredients, with a real focus on simplicity and flavour. This is served alongside an extensive, yet thoughtfully chosen array of over 130 different wines from around the world, ranging from the classics, all the way through to the more left field.

Covino started as an even smaller wine bar & shop in 2016, situated just around the corner. At the end of 2018 we outgrew our humble beginnings and moved to Northgate Street, where our evolution into a restaurant began.

Sitting on the little stools was quite uncomfortable . The food and wine offered were very individual and high quality but I am afraid it was extremely expensive for what we had ! I don’t think we would rush back. Maybe more for a lunch than an evening meal.

So, so Glad To have Covino back again; absutely the best quality dining experience in Chester. Always a varied, imaginative menu with taste combinations that are incredible! I had no idea what the comté gougères would be other than cheese related - possibly one of the tastiest things I have ever eaten! Best restaurant in Chester by a mile.

we had an amazing lunch and excellent staff, who were informative and talented. The food was incredible, especially the beetroot kebab (which was also vegan). My husband also really loved the recommended roast bone marrow on toast. Can’t wait until our next visit
