They really lightened up the place, taking out all the dark corners and booths and artwork in the dining room, opening it up into the patio and adding a tall communal bar table. With new sage and cream colors, Styne and Goin, along with designer Claire Stansfield, wanted to harken back to the lighter, breezier elegant days of Orso, which lived here for years before Il Covo opened. The patio has its tall leafy trees back, with an edible garden and the fireplace as a focal point.
