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.

We went to Al Covo after reading great review in Condé Nast - it was TRUE - We went back the next day ❤️
Excellent traditional Venetian food. Fresh produce. Friendly and efficient service. Would highly recommend.
Absolutely wonderful and delicious tasting menu enjoyed by both my husband and I. Each course left us satisfied and impressed. Paired with the wine it was a fantastic, filling end to a last night in Venice. Diane and her husband could not have been more warm and welcoming
We love your food but more importantly your family’s passion & enthusiasm for creating a culinary adventure each time we visit. Thanks so much! Susan&Mike Donlon
Our dinner at Al Covo was excellent. From the moment we walked in, I felt welcome and relaxed. The food was of impeccable quality, executed perfectly, beautiful and most importantly, delicious. Our dinner was an exceptional tour of Venetian cuisine and one of the highlights of our trip to Venice. I walked into the service expecting great things due to the high reputation of Al Covo and it did not disappoint. We genuinely appreciate the hospitality and wonderful experience.
Lovely ambience, great service, very fresh and flavorful food!
Great food. Great service. Really enjoyed our first trip Al Covo.
Escaping the heat in this beautiful, cool restaurant for three hours was one of the highlights of my recent trip to Italy. The wait staff was excellent. I was a bit disappointed in the food. The lightly battered local fish and vegetables was comparable to the tempura at my local sushi restaurant. The burger with egg was tasty, but $12 more than burgers I have had at other fine dining restaurants in New York. The mullet with butter was good, but they were out of the famous pumpkin bread that was supposed to be part of this appetizer. We didn’t try the desserts because $12 was a bit expensive for vanilla gelato. I enjoyed my lunch and hope that the kitchen can make some slight improvements so that it is as excellent as the front of the house.
Absolutely wonderful. Best food I had in Italy.
We had a lovely meal in Al Covo. The service is polite and friendly, the food great, it is unpretentious, I would definitely recommend this place.
We come back here every time we are in Venice
Stunningly delicious and memorable!! We will be back.
Wonderful meal and service! My favorite in Venice. Bravissimo!
We had an amazing meal at al Covo. Diane was an excellent host and our waiter Richard was very good. I would have to say is was our best meal experience during our 2 week Italy trip.
One of the best restaurants we know. We’ve eaten here four times. Always perfect to excellent (tuna millefeuille a bit tasteless & dry) & perfect wine. It’s a shame there’s no dress/ social media code (last visit US folk in shorts at dinner, earlier visit kid playing computer games). But you don’t get everything. Al Covo is a beacon of excellence.
We were greeted like family and were made to feel very welcomed and special! The BEST food and service we had while in Italy. Desserts were DELICIOUS as well and are a must!! Much love from Austin, TX!!
