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.

I spend my 50th birthday at Al Covo with my family and we had a fantastic evening. The food was everything we wished for and some small adjustments from the staff meant that everybody in the family was so satisfied.

Dank an Cesare und sein Team, die uns dieses wundervolle „Arbeitsessen“ ermöglicht haben. Die Jungköche haben viel gelernt und das Essen genossen. Schön auch von den Anwesenden venezianischen Gästen gehört zu haben, dass sie unbedingt das COVO weiterempfehlen wollen. Großen Dank auch im Namen der Jungköche für die Großzügige Behandlung der Rechnung.

We were very excited about eating with you and had been looking forward to it for weeks. You came highly recommended. Our experience though, was very disappointing. Our waiter was inattentive and spent his time talking to what seemed like friends. We had to ask for olive oil, we asked his opinion on our dish which he failed to explain accurately and ultimately we left earlier than intended and spent less than expected. We weren’t even asked what we thought of the food. The greeting by the owners was heartfelt and the room nice but the food ( ceviche too much vinegar, fish special, low on fish) was underwhelming. A sad result considering we only had two nights in Venice and had planned to enjoy them.

The food is very good. The service is awful. You will wait forever at every turn, between courses and at the end for the check. The staff is very pretentious and arrogant. This place is living on it’s past reputation and does not try to please you. Instead the attitude is such that you should be filled with gratitude just to be there. If you express your dissatisfaction as I did to the owner he will go into an angry rage and scream obscene language at you and even want to start a physical fight. His wife had to pull him back. Absolutely unbelievable. Go at your own risk!

Excellent restaurant, cuisine vénitienne de poisson classique, parfaitement exécutée, service chaleureux, mais, s’il faut un bémol, un peu lent. Joli choix de vins et sommelier de bon conseil. Au total, un très agréable déjeuner, nous reviendrons !
