Veneto's cuisine features a wide range of styles and dishes. It is quite different from all the other regional cuisines of Northern Italy and has a few things in common with [[Austria|austrian]] and eastern Europe's cuisines. It can be roughly divided into three main categories: coastal, the plains and countryside in general, and mountains, but keep in mind that there are many other local cuisines and each province has its own typical dishes.

Along the coast seafood is very popular, especially around the Venetian Lagoon where you can find fishes from the sea, the lagoon and the many rivers that run through the area.
 
 
The plains and the countryside are the place for grilled meat (pork, beef and chicken) together with grilled ''polenta'', potatoes and vegetables. It's the typical cuisine of the many local sagra (town festival) held throughout spring and summer. '''Polenta''' is found almost everywhere in Northern Italy and in some areas of Central Italy: it is basically boiled corn and once it was one of the main (or the ''only'') dish the poorest classes could afford. You can eat it hot as a porridge or grilled. Among the most popular dishes there is ''risotto'', which is rice cooked with many different kinds of food: there are many local specialties to try depending on the season and the town or province you're in.
 
 
Up in the mountains and hills the cuisine features pork, beef or game meat, with polenta, as well as mushrooms or cheeses (usually made by cow milk), and some dishes taken from Austrian and Tyrolese tradition.
