Buon Ricordo specialities

Each Buon Ricordo restaurant creates a recipe that perfectly represents its local tradition and local produce as the restaurant’s signature dish. This option is on the menu year round and is also represented on the restaurant’s special ceramic plate, which is presented as a gift to customers who choose it.

Note: Buon Ricordo restaurants are proud of their speciality recipes inspired by local traditions and typically Italian ingredients, products and methods of cooking. Unfortunately they are difficult to translate accurately and explain to anyone who does not know Italy and its regional culinary traditions well and even more difficult to cook successfully without the original ingredients. So it has been decided to leave the recipes on this site and in our recipe books in Italian, however we have included a brief description in English of the specialities on each restaurant’s page.

Frittura della Serenissima

Frittura della Serenissima
Cuisine based on local fish mainly from the lagoon or the Venetian Bay. The recipe of this uncommon "frittura" wants molluscs that are small calamari, cuttlefish, canestrelli - a sort of cockles, and special crabs known as ‘moeche’. Vegetables are supplied by the nearby veg-gardens in Sant’Erasmo and Cavallino: artichokes, fiori di zucca - golden blossoms of zucchini, leeks, and many others. Fresh products that any experienced chef will process into appetizing crunchy ‘treats’.
