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.
Since 1987 our cuisine is the expression of a territory which is unique in the world: the Venetian lagoon, her islands and her surrounding mainland. The dishes created by Chef and owner Cesare Benelli together with Paolo Semeraro come from our mission to research, appreciate, defend and propose the local products and varietals.
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.
Ristorante Al Covo belongs to the Alliance of Chefs and Slow Food Presidiaand to the Association Ristoranti della Buona Accoglienza di Venezia.
My wife, Betsy, and I -- and our little pooch, Poppy -- spent one evening of our belated honeymoon dining at Al Covo, and it turned out to be the most pleasurable of experiences during our stay in Venice. To begin with, the ambience was cozy and inviting, and the service, from beginning to end, was superb. Our meal itself was a wonder of locally-produced ingredients, ranging from deep-fried, delicate zucchini blossoms stuffed with ricotta and mint, through the perfectly-sautéed and breaded John Dory main course, to the suprisingly different and very delicious hazlenut gelato dessert. But perhaps even more important that the superior fare was the human touch evident at every turn. They simply made us feel like royalty. We will be celebrating our anniversary in Venice in October, and, of course, on the big day we plan to be at Al Covo.
A really fantastic evening with my wife. The atmosphere, staff, and quality of the food was exceptional. I have recommended this already to my Italian friends, and we hope to return one day. Thank you very much, it is refreshing to experience a restaurant with such a personal touch with obvious passion for every detail.
It was a very pleasant experience in general!!!
This was the best meal we had during our week in Northern Italy. The service was very professional and enthusiastic. What to say about the food? Exceptional. So fresh and fantastic. We were not familiar with the extensive wine list so we asked Lorenzo to choose for us. It was perfect. Our only regret is that we don’ Live in Venice so we could dine here frequently.
Wonderful location & atmosphere, perhaps a little pricey but great quality. Owner Diane is an expat gem.
It was a great dinner and the food was really good.
Excellente maison familiale,service absolument parfait et parlant anglais et français.Salleconfortable . Très bon accueil
It was a beautiful night. Its in the tourist zone but not tourists at all!! Great service, exquisite food and even though we were a little fussy with the wine, they helped us finding what we wanted.
An absolute gem - excellent food and excellent service. One of the best bits of our visit to Venice.
This was the most lovely meal I've ever had. I ordered the tasting menu and wine pairings. I would recommend it to anyone. It was a wonderful experience.
Al Covo has long been on our list of Venice’s very best restaurants. Thank you for yet another delicious and quite special meal!
Clearly the top choice for a date night in Venice. I wish I could spend the rest of my life tasting, drinking and experiencing that dinner over and over again.
Très bon moment passé au restaurant qui propose des plats délicieux. Le carpaccio d'artichauts était excellent et le cheesecake à la ricotta di buffala exceptionnel. Seul point moins agréable, les sardines et gambas du plat principal manquaient un peu de travail, il y avait des arêtes dans les sardines et encore un peu de 'carapace' sur les gambas.... mauvaise sensation en bouche qui gâche un peu le plat pourtant très bon en goût. Très bon moment dans l'ensemble, service agréable et disponible. Je le conseille.
One of the best experiences. Food magnificent, desserts a dream, Diane adds warmth and charm to an already perfect dining experience. I would like this restaurant to have a sister restaurant in NYC, then life would be perfect.
Host was too busy chatting with old friends to attend to us upon arrival. Food was not exceptional as the pricing would indicate. For example, the fried artichokes (carciofi) were greasy and not appealing. Bread at beginning of meal was ordinary. Disappointing dinner.
We had the best experience at Al Covo! Perfect atmosphere and wonderful service. The softshell crab dish is one of the best meals we have ever experienced.
Warm and welcoming, beautifully presented,tasty food
The main dishes came quite late
We loved out lunch here. It was on the expensive side, but worth the money for the quality and service.
Vielen Dank für den wunderschönen Abend! Grazie!
Una cena Al Covo è sempre un'esperienza che resta nel ricordo: ottima l'ideazione ed esecuzione dei piatti, la bontà delle materie prime, la cantina, la competenza, professionalità e simpatia dell'oste, Cesare Benelli, e del figlio bravissimo sommelier, dai gusti anche inusuali e sofisticati.
E statto ottimo !! Grazie per tutto, era il notre primo ristorante arrivando a Venezia e eravamo lieti di aver mangiato dal ristorante Al Covo.
An excellent restaurant in Venice. The food was creative and seasonal. Hard to beat and strongly recommend.
Wonderful in every way: brilliant food and wine, warm service, and in a city with confounding twists and turns, easy to find! Not to be missed.
People and ambience were fantastic. Linguine with clams soooo delicious!
