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.
