Venetian taste

SCROLL

The taste of conviviality.

In Venice, the aperitif is a ritual that fills the bars and taverns of the city. An event that embraces everyone in the name of Venetian tradition of enjoying life through simple, sincere, and authentic things, like a chat with friends over a glass of wine.

Cicchetti

We have selected six refined recipes that are a perfect match with Modello delle Venezie.
