What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.2

A conveniently located restaurant in Midtown that’s more than just convenient. The food and service at Covina are great.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

I definitely would recommend Covina to a friend. I had the lemon Ricotta Pancakes and they were
really delicous and a big portion. My friends ordered the egg dishes that they said were great but very small portions with nothing else on plate. So if you are really hungry, order the pancakes!

Very disappointing return to Covina. The waiter could not have been more disinterested in serving us. Repeatedly had to track him down for simple items like bread. The busboy shined in comparison he had a personality and was very cordial and prompt. Portions were incredibly small for the price. Food tasted very good. Too much competition in NYC to waste our time here again.

My first time at Covina I had to wait 15 minutes to get seated past my reservation time due to a full house. But I waited patiently, Other than that me and my fiancé had a great time. Food was great, excellent service, the manager had apologized for the inconvenience for the reservation timing which was understandable. We had a great time and would come back to Covina again. #postivevibes 😎

Came with my parents and loved everything we ordered. Got the spicy honey pizza which is my favorite, along with meatballs and burrata. Everything was excellent! Shout out to our awesome waiter Marty who had great suggestions and even brought us a free side that we’d debated trying!
Especially in Murray hill where there isn’t much to write home about Covina really stands out!!
Will be back for sure

Covina is a great place to always have in your back pocket. Food goes from classic safe options - margarita pizza, chicken- to more inventive meals - Fontina & Brussels Sprout Pizza. All of it is excellent. Service is ridiculously speedy. Ambience is cozy but elegant.

A disappointment. Inattentive service spoiled good food. We had to ask for plates, coffee, utensils several times. The place was less than half full and yet parties were seated next to each other creating a noise level far higher than necessary. The staff seemed very oblivious to everything. Won’t be back.

Outstanding food and service. Would definitely go back there again when in NYC. Had 3 appetizers; the pork belly, liver foie gras, and the burrata prosciutto...all were excellent. Main courses consisted of the Fontina & Brussels Sprout pizza, Caesar Salad, truffle french fries, and the Chicken salad. The Caesar Salad was not the best (a little too dry for our tastes), but everything else was excellent. Portion sizes were perfect and we did not leave wanting more. Great place!!!

Two in our party ordered the lemon ricotta pancakes which came with fresh berries and were outstanding.

Food and service was excellent. Loved the salmon, skirt steak, meatball appetizer and the buratta appetizer was exceptional. Only complaint is my husband ordered the black bass and the portion of fish was very small. I realize that does happen with some types of fish entrees but it really should have been a bigger portion of fish. Was not the case with the salmon or the skirt steak. Skirt steak had excellent flavor and was cooked perfectly. Also had a very good bottle of wine that was recommend. We would definitely go back
