This is a mom and pop like people talk about but SHOULDN'T. It is in a small corner location in some strip mall and is strapped for space as it is. Any more people find out about it and we are SUNK! You will never ever be able to get a table ever again.

It doesn't matter if you go for lunch or an evening meal, you can't go wrong at Covino's. the food is great and the service is above par. We always run into the owner or his son. Never had anything on the menu disappoint us. This is a small hole in the wall Italian restaurant, but has an intimate atmosphere.

This is in a strip shopping center and apparently a favorite in the neighborhood. The mussels were so-so, but the salad, bread and pasta were delicious. Much of the pasta is homemade. Service was good. BYOB. Great neighborhood atmosphere.

Had a nice dinner. Gnocchi chicken alfredo plate was good. I like the fact that they allow you to have what type of pasta along with whatever type of sauce you want (hence my odd pairing). The salad was served with a creamy parmesan dressing. It was a bit odd but not bad. I like that it had a real... More

We had a large party on a Friday night and they setup a space in the back to accommodate all of us. The service was professional and efficient. Most of the group had the seafood combo with Mussels, clams, shrimp and a garlicky broth which they all devoured. I had the stuffed pasta with chicken in a cream sauce which... More

We were just looking for a simple place and this pizza and pasta place came up in the search. What a great find. Pizza was excellent, as was the caprese salad. Kids has spaghetti and meet balls, and cheese ravioli. All excellent. BYOB which we like.

We have bees going here for years and it never gets old. A wonderful Italian hole in the wall that still allows you to BYOB. Wings are especially good, the calamari are crispy pieces of heaven (I recommend going with their blue cheese instead of the red sauce). My favorites after many years of sampling are the Tortellini Alfredo topped... More

Covino's staff is actually better than ever and Wed night turned out to be the no wait night. It was still a busy little place inside. We ordered and split just the special 10 inch pizza and the always reliable meat lasagna. Ordering the extra salad and opening our home made beer made it just right. Thank you Covino's for... More

We have been going to Covino's for several years. Just the two of us, another couple or suggesting it for groups. Tucked away in the corner, definitely worth finding it. Small, friendly, independently owned. Outdoor patio. You bring the wine and they uncork and bring glasses. I love the lasagna and the pizza- it is all good!
