Near the Arsenale of Venice, CoVino, a small hidden gem in calle del Pestrin, is a bacaro-style restaurant of only 6 tables managed by a young restaurateur, Andrea Lorenzon, who will welcome you with a smile and an original dandy look distinguished by the impeccable bow tie.
From his father’s experience – Mauro Lorenzon, who is the legendary host of the famous La Mascareta wine bar, inventor of the “Enoiteca” format – he has, in fact, learn the art of hospitality and good wine.
With an atmosphere that mixes the one of a French bistro with that of a traditional Venetian wine bar, CoVino offers an essential menu that varies according to seasons and to the raw materials that the chef provides fresh every day. Preferably based on quality local products and Slow Food presidia, the dishes are masterfully prepared in the quaint open kitchen that entertains guests by enhancing the informal and relaxed atmosphere that reigns at CoVino.
The wine list is also excellent, mostly offering labels from small producers that use organic or natural methods of production.
Given the few seats, we suggest you book in advance.
CoVino is one of the places in the lagoon city preferred by an Anglo-Saxon upper-class clientele, besides by Venetians themselves, thanks to the lucky reviews that appeared in the NY Times and other authoritative overseas magazines.
