Venice’s most notable dish is baccalà mantecato, salt cod cooked in milk and served with polenta. According to legend, a Venetian merchant, who had been shipwrecked on the Lofoten Islands, off the coast of Norway, discovered stockfish, which he brought with him when he returned to the Lagoon.

Risoto de gò, a typical thick rice recipe prepared with goby, a type of lagoon fish, is the most typical regional speciality you can savour while visiting Venice.
Polenta con le Schie
