Things to do in Venice Food and Wine
Unlike other Italian regional cuisines, such as the Roman or the Ligurian ones, authentic Venetian cuisine can only be tasted on site. Being less widespread and well-known worldwide doesn't mean it's any less good than other regional gastronomic traditions. Venetian cuisine is based on varied and gentle flavors, that have their roots in the history and geography of the area.
The products that we often find in traditional Venetian dishes are rice, polenta, beans and cod.The latter in particular - a fish uncommon on other Italian tables - will always be there in Veneto, both as an appetizer and as a first and second course. The typical pasta of the region is represented by bigoli, thick spaghetti made using a hand-operated press (which requires a lot of strength). Its surface is particularly rough and suitable to hold the sauces.

Reviews Venice Food and Wine
“This app would have been great if it had a Disability feature. Like telling you if there's stairs or where it's wheelchair friendly. Not a big fan!”
“Es war ein wunderbarer Abend mit einem ausgezeichneten Menü und tollem Service.”
“Tout était parfait du début jusqu'à la fin. Repas, organisation, musique, service, tout était au top. A recommander sans hésitation.”
“Absolutely brilliant. I was really lucky - the other 4 didn't turn up, so I got a personal tour. Excellent value for money - loads of information. Lots to eat and drink, so don't have too much breakfast! Would absolutely recommend this - a good insight into Venetian history, habits and food.”
