There are so many delicious things to eat at the best restaurants in Venice: from a quick snack of cicchetti (snacks and side dishes endemic to the city's food culture) to sarde in saor (fried sardines marinated in vinegar, raisins, onions and pine nuts) and bigoi in salsa (whole-wheat pasta resembling spaghetti in shape, drenched in a sauce made of onions and salt-cured fish, usually anchovies or sardines), one of the very best things to do while in town is to simply eat all the food.
You should know that Venetian fare is the result of over a thousand years of influence from those native to the lagoon and the many folks that have passed through it to trade goods when the city was a maritime empire, which makes all the dishes served at local eateries outstanding amalgamations of flavours, spices and cultures.
Not to be overlooked are the slew of Michelin-starred restaurants that have recently landed on the scene, joining other star-studded and beloved destinations that offer the sorts of meals that in their splendour equal some of the best events in town (yes, eating here is an event). Take Venissa, for example, which serves the best rendition of the northern lagoon's native gastronomical offerings: you'll never taste vegetables quite as fresh and tasty as the ones served by the team here.
From the food offerings at the best hotels in town to the streets eats that pepper your walk through the best attractions in Venice, you’re in for a life-changing foodie experience – we promise. Buon appetito!
