Born from the love of haute cuisine and fine art, Chef Carmelo Marino of Al Covo Dell’Arte (“The Art Lair”) is dedicated to creating his own refined works of art. Every detail, from the dining rooms to the names of menu items to the presentation of the food, is designed to evoke the paintings of the great masters.
