My boyfriend and I were initially hesitant going into Il Covo as we have been budgeting our vacation and looking to avoid overspending. We decided the menu of the day was above what we were hoping to spend and decided to order a la carte. We ended up having one of the most memorable meals of our entire near month long trip and some of the best pasta I have had in recent memory. The entirety of the dining experience is well thought out at Il Covo, from the pasta being prepared by hand as you walk in the front door to the aperitifs selected for the given dishes. The wait staff was incredibly kind, making suggestions on food options and engaging with us through the evening to ensure that everything is enjoyable. At the end of the night we were gifted with tastes of grappa, grinjinha, and limoncello, an unexpected but delicious treat. As others have mentioned the restaurant is slightly outside the more touristic areas of Lisbon, but it is more than worth the trip. If you like good food, attentive and thoughtful servers, and a personalized dining experience I strongly recommend an evening at Il Covo.
