The Venetian culinary tradition dates back to ancient times and is probably one of the most important in Italy.
For many centuries the Maritime Republic of Venice dominated the Mediterranean building up profitable relations and intense trade exchanges with a range of disparate and distant civilisations, but above all with the East, self-styled as one of the cradles of Italian cuisine which is now esteemed all over the world.

These encounters introduced new foods – spaghetti which are clearly related to Oriental noodles, baccalà (dried cod) and stoccafisso (salt cod) – as well as innovative cooking methods - like the “saor”, a marinade made from onions, vinegar, sultanas and pine-nuts.
The “saor” which is basically a “Sweet and sour” is a cooking concept imported from the East by Venetian sailors who used it to preserve foods during their long journeys.

Today Venice’s restaurants seek to maintain this important cooking tradition, sometimes giving traditional recipes a modern twist to satisfy modern palates, but always offering strictly Venetian dishes, sophistically interpreted and served with elegance in the city’s charming eateries.

La Rivista is a design restaurant opened in Venice in early 2000.
