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.

Nettes Lokal, war ob der guten Kritiken etwas enttäuscht. Speisen waren sehr normal und der Service nicht wirklich aufmerksam. Wein wurde kein einziges mal nachgeschenkt, Proseccogläser standen nach Ende des Hauptganges noch immer leer am Tisch

After watching a segment of, Someone feed Phil, we decided to try this restaurant out for ourselves. We had one of the most enjoyable meals, ever, at Al Covo. The service was superb. Everything about this restaurant is top notch. We will be back. Thank you for sharing this experience with us. Dee and Karl Cooper Palm Coast Florida

Our family of 5 really enjoyed our dinner here in early January 2019. The waiter spoke perfect English and was friendly, but not intrusive. We had the chef's menu, which featured local seafoods. It is not inexpensive but nothing in Venice is inexpensive. There is a 5 euro cover charge per person unless each person orders at least 50 euro.

The truffle pasta was the best dish I've ever had. The atmosphere and branding details were also quite impressive. But the best part was meeting the owner and understanding how hands on she is with her lovely, very personable attitude.

The food and wait staff were lovely. However, we were a bit confused as we made a reservation for a Thursday, then upon reviewing the website, we found that the restaurant was to be closed on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Thankfully we went by to check and found that it was indeed open despite the signage in the window and website information saying it wold be closed. This is easily fixable and will reduce confusion. We had the raw fish special appetizer and a pasta dish, both of which were yummy and interesting. We were given and charged for appetizers we did not ask for, an upon reflection, we should have clarified if they were free or not. But, not having found this practice anywhere else in Venice, we were surprised and not pleased that we were being charged for an un-requested dish. Overall, the food and atmosphere are classy and nice, but a few details fell short of expectations. The quality of ingredients was clearly very high.

Sorry but very average at best. The problem Al Covo has is that Venice, as a rule, is not a foodie location. You have an abundance of people so repeat custom or quality is not a major issue. We had found the place on the back of the TV show Somebody Feed Phil. I suspect if Phil had been paying he made have asked for someone else to feed him.
