“A shrimp with only one buddy alike”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

The restaurant is located in teh same building as the Hotel Lizard. Also the hotelbreakfast is served in the same premises
So, at dinner I ordered Risotto alla camberetti. My benchmark in Italian restaurants is risotto. The risotto in Covetto was tasty, but very thin and in top of that I found only THREE shrimps in the whole portion. It almost made me laugh. The antipasti was good, but as it always goes, you remember the special things better, whether positive or negative.

“Excellent ”
Reviewed 3 November 2013 via mobile

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience dining at the Corvetto. Food was superb and there was a wide choice for both vegetarians and meat eaters. My only slight criticism would be fairly slow cold service. There lacked any warmth in greetings or manner of the waiting staff.

“Far and away a favorite!”
Reviewed 13 February 2013

Tucked into a quiet courtyard in the town center, Covetto Osteria in Corte even offers parking for guests. The restaurant itself is at the same time elegant and homey, the owner and personnel welcoming and helpful. The menu offers appealing and delicious choices of regional and local specialties all served beautifully. Not to be missed are the tris of appetizers, delicious pasta dishes, and home-made desserts. Offering excellent quality at reasonable prices, Covetto is by far our favorite restaurant in Como.

“Unexpected find”
Reviewed 16 January 2013

What a great find! A little ways from the center of Como this restaurant is well worth the trip (And there is convenient parking). We started with an excellent amuse-bouche from the chef. Every dish was delicious from the onion soup to the steak with truffles. The service was impeccable and the restaurant was beautifully decorated for the holidays.
