Buona Accoglienza Restaurant Association

During the course of history Venice became a cross-roads of different cultures and traditions.
Trade exchanges with the East and contacts with peoples from other Mediterranean countries combined with the imagination and skill of the Venetians exploiting this culinary diversity caused Venetian cooking to gradually acquire exotic ingredients like spices and cooking and conservation techniques used for new foodstuffs like the cooking of rice, salting and marinating techniques.

Inspired by the need to conserve foods during long sea journeys Venetian sailors created an original dish that has now become a part of the Venetian culinary tradition: sarde in saor, a kind of sweet and sour dish made from marinated sardines with onions, pine-nuts and sultanas.

Venetian cusine is a fusion of original flavours and recipes drawing upon local produce and traditions.
Even in the kitchen Venice appears as a cosmopolitan city, a melting pot of the worlds and cultures encountered during the course of her history and on her trade routes.

Today the unique character of Venetian cuisine lies in the great variety of local produce served in Venetian restaurants and changing with the seasons: fish from the lagoon and from the Adriatic sea, vegetables from the islands or coastal areas, lagoon game.

Discerning food-loving tourists coming to Venice in search of good cooking are faced with an endless number of restaurants, osterias, trattorias, cicchetterias and other eateries scattered all over the city making the choice of the right place a tough job!
