Trattoria Veneto

La Gritta - Special Menu - Trattoria Veneto

Similar to Julius Caesar’s conquests in Gaul, the former territory of the Venetian Republic is now split into three distinct regions: Trentino Alto-Adige, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, and the Veneto. Interestingly, during Caesar’s era, these regions were part of Cisalpine Gaul, and the name “Veneto” originated from the Celtic tribe that once inhabited the area.

The cuisine of the Veneto is characterised partly by the carbohydrates eaten all over the region. Many of its traditional dishes incorporate fish. Unlike many parts of Italy, pasta is not the staple – that role is played by the double act of polenta and rice.

The Veneto is a wine producing area with several famous Italian varieties – both red and white – coming from the region. A lot of grape production focuses on local varieties, but more international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay are also grown.

The Venetian pasta is bigoli, and is like thick spaghetti made with buckwheat or whole wheat and usually eggs (although as with many things in Italy, there are lots of variations).
