  • Venice Food and Drink
    Historically, Venice was the crossroads of the spice trade between Europe and the Orient and was a city that played host to a myriad of nationalities and cultures. As a result, Venetian cuisine is a blend of numerous cooking styles and dishes, such as rio al cavroman, a Levantine method of cooking lamb with cloves and cinnamon, transformed by the Venetians into their famous risotto. Polenta, too, is a basic ingredient found in many of Venice's dishes. 
    Specialists in seafood, Venetians can find an infinite variety of ways to cook baccala and liven up the humble sardine with onions, spiced vinegar, pine nuts and raisins to make sardelle in saor. Liver and onion (fegato alla veneziana) and rice and peas (risi e bisi) are also Venetian specialities. However, if you prefer a more international flavour, there are a wide variety of foreign restaurants throughout the city.

    Venice Tipping Advice
    As well as a standard service charge, expect to tip between 5% and 10% to waiters in restaurants for good service. Taxi drivers should also get between 5% and 10%, whereas chambermaids and bellboys should get up to EUR 1.00 per day / bag. Smaller tips to any other staff are sure to be appreciated, as tipping is widely practised in Italy.
    Don't assume that all restaurants and bars accept credit cards - ask before ordering. Restaurants which accept credit cards will not allow you to put a tip on the card. Many smaller retailers do not accept American Express cards. 
    Cicheti, similar to restaurant antipasta, are often delicious and inexpensive snacks served in Osterie e bacari taverns. Other treats include saòr, bigoi in salsa, tripe, liver alla veneziana and fish fries. 
    A small 'bread and cover' charge (pane e coperto) of between €0.50 and €15 is added to restaurant bills except when eating 'tourist menus'.
