The Brenta Riviera is a location with a long history, which Villa Ducale both illustrates and represents. The tradition of its fish dates back to long ago, indeed as far as the year 1500, when the Venetian nobles began to convert the swampland into terra ferma and put the hauls fished in the lagoon on their dinner tables. This lasted until the 1870s when on Sundays people from all over the north of Italy would meet in the Riviera to taste the fabulous dishes made with the latest catch. Today, the cuisine offered at Villa Ducale is a combination of the secrets of tradition and dynamic modern taste, skilfully weaved together to produce a wide range of delicious specialities.
We offer the typical cuisine of the Brenta Riviera, but with a few modern twists.
The imagination of our Chef, and the dynamic pace of our times. A continuous mutation of tastes and flavours, but one that remains anchored to tradition.
The careful presentation of our dishes is a fitting finishing touch to our meticulous ingredient selection process and we strive to combine the offerings of our land and sea with wisdom and skill, enhancing them, last but not least, with our well-stocked wine cellar.
On hearing the words “Brenta Riviera” what springs to mind? Beauty wherever you turn, lush, vibrant nature, waters with golden reflections that flow harmoniously as they wind through the land, fashion in its essence and footwear at its finest. Not to mention excellent food.
