Venice: CoVino

Thick-rimmed glasses and bowtie – tons of personality as much as the wines

Covino was established in 2013 after a trip to 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.


When You Arrive:

Its located off of main thoroughfares in a back alley on a corner, you’ll see a frosted glass door telling you to ring the doorbell first. Why? The place is tiny with only  7 tables and an open kitchen. There isn’t room for people to gather in an entry.

The Vibe + Crowd:

Fun and boisterous – neighborhood bistrot

What's To Eat + Drink?

Seasonal hot food and natural wines


Its just Andrea and one other person – professional and friendly.

What To Know Before You Go:

The wine list is a HUGE reason to go – if you don’t travel to drink organic/natural wines then this expereince will be lost on you.

Getting In:

Reserve directly on their site
