“Authentic Italian”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Authentic Italian/Sicilian cuisine! Absolutely delicious, we ate here for Easter dinner. Coming from a Sicilian family, this was the first Easter ever eaten at a restaurant. It truly tasted like home cooked food that my mom or myself cook. We were pleasantly surprised. From the hot antipasto of calamari,baked clams, eggplant rollatini, stuffed mushrooms to pasta con le sarde (delish) and pasta con le Vongole. Not to mention salad, rack of lamb and stuffed shrimp. EVerything was delicious! Anna and Vincenzo were wonderful, the staff amazing! Will definitely make a trip here from Brooklyn again!

“Took great care of us”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

Felt like family, booked a room for a small family gathering. The staff was great, the food was of good quality and the prices were very fair. Adequate parking was good and clean restrooms, would go back, once again our servers were top notch.

“A Warm Welcome Surprise”
Reviewed September 24, 2008

There aren't many good places in the area to get a good meal, so we were especially delighted when we decided to try Covello's over a year ago. The first impression driving down the road didn’t convey what we were about to experience. But when you go inside you will find warm, friendly people waiting to make your evening enjoyable.

The décor is a bit of Italy with a beautiful tile mural on one wall. There are white table cloths, burgundy cloth napkins and candles on each table. It is a place you can go to wearing jeans or dressed up a bit.

The menu offers many delicious choices and the wait staff is always ready to share the day's list of specials. After you decide what to order, you will be brought the most wonderful warm bread and butter. We usually order a tomato and mozzarella salad which compliments it nicely

One of my favorite meals is Chicken Florentine over angel hair pasta. They are really great about preparing your dish the way you like it. If you have a special request…just ask. They will do what they can to please you. The food quality and quantity is fantastic!

We go there at least a couple times a month if not more. Hope to see you there!
