About Al Covo

Dal 1987 la nostra cucina è espressione di un territorio unico al mondo: la Laguna di Venezia e il suo entroterra. Ricercare, valorizzare e proporre i prodotti e le varietà locali: da qui nascono i piatti creati dallo chef e patron Cesare Benelli e da Paolo Semeraro. Pesce freschissimo pescato tra le barene o nel vicino Mare Adriatico; verdura e frutta dal sapore unico, cresciute sulla terra salmastra del Cavallino, di Treporti e delle isole di Sant’Erasmo e delle Vignole, da sempre gli orti di Venezia. Pasta fresca, prodotti sott’olio e sott’aceto, gelatine di frutta e marmellate sono tutti fatti in casa, così come i dessert, specialità di Diane Benelli.
Tradizione e territorio, passione e freschezza della materia prima, nella costante ricerca della qualità assoluta. Selezioniamo con cura i migliori oli extravergini d’oliva per i nostri piatti, mentre la carta dei vini annovera circa 240 etichette dai migliori terroir nazionali ed esteri, con particolare enfasi sulle produzioni naturali e biodinamiche.
Il ristorante Al Covo fa parte dell’Alleanza Cuochi e Presidi Slow Food, e dell’Associazione Ristoranti della Buona Accoglienza Venezia.

Tradition and territory, passion and freshness of locally-sourced ingredients, in a constant quest for the utmost quality. We carefully select the best extra-virgin olive oils for our dishes, while our wine list numbers 240 labels from the best national and foreign terroirs, with particular emphasis on natural and biodynamic producers.

Splendida esperienza a pranzo, ingredienti di grande qualità interpretati e presentati con gusto. Servizio attento e cordiale, ambiente molto confortevole anche ora che si è limitati ai posti all’aperto. Ci torneremo di sicuro, anche perché è in posizione strategica per visite ad Arsenale e Giardini o l’area di piazza San Marco. Bravi, continuate cosi!

Tutto perfetto, servizio impeccabile, camerieri gentili ed attenti, cibo buono e piatti curati. Forse il conto un filo sopra la media ma considerando che siamo a Venezia non eccessivo.

Si fa fatica a trovare qualcosa che non sia andato bene nel pranzo trascorso in questo delizioso ristorante veneziano: dal servizio cortese e preparatissimo ( fatevi consigliare sui vini, non ve ne pentirete!), all'atmosfera cordiale e calorosa, passando per il pesce, che consiglio in particolare nei misti mare di pesce cotto. Ho poi voluto assaggiare, non amando i dolci, una selezione di formaggi che è orientata sui presidi slow food o comunque su piccole realtà casearie. Un'esperienza a dir poco esaltante. Il conto completamente in linea con tutte le qualità sopra elencate. Appena si potrà, speriamo molto presto, ci torneremo.

We arrived at 7.20 for a 7.30 reservation to be told very brusquely that we are not open until 7.30. We walked around on a chilly evening for ten minutes and when we arrived back at 7.30 there were already three tables occupied! They must have arrived before 7.30! We were seated and asked what water we would like. Ten minutes later we asked if we could have water. Other tables were being given bread but not our table... until we finally requested it. The food was great but the service appalling! We were very disappointed as we have been here before and enjoyed it. Not a totally happy experience.

Recommended by friends as one of their favourite Venice restaurants and did not disappoint. Staff all pleasant and helpful when ordering/serving. Fine dining with dishes not seen elsewhere, together with excellent wines. Cosy seating inside in late evening, although outside looked good if warmer. Looking forward to another visit!

I had very high expectations and have been looking forward to it for weeks. Friendly welcome but once at the table we were ignored by the older waiter. I don't expect this at such a restaurant at this level. More recommendations of matching wine would have been most welcome. I kept asking for this myself, with the dessert (cheese) I again asked for a suggestion and was fobbed off with a glass of red wine, without explanation of what wine it was. Good food but certainly expected more!

Das Essen war gut, aber wir haben mehr erwartet nachdem wir in anderen Lokalen in Venedig, insbesondere Osterias, gegessen haben, wo wir sehr begeistert waren. Hätten wir an anderen Orten nicht gegessen, wären wir vielleicht mit Alcovo sehr zufrieden gewesen. Aber so war es nichts besonderes. Der Service war nett, aber oberflächlich, wie wenn es annimmt, die Leute kommen ja sowieso, egal wie sie sich verhalten. Ein bisschen sehr von sich überzeugt. Leider, wenn man bedenkt, dass sie im Vergleich zu anderen Lokalen nicht mehr top sind. Entsprechend war das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis nicht im Gleichgewicht.
