Aosta has an interesting culinary movement, focused strongly on tradition. At the same time, however, it has shown a talent for innovation, by revisiting a number of recipes while maintaining the strongest of links with the local area and its products - even where you might least expect it, such as in sandwich shops or fast-food outlets. This is what has made Aosta cuisine so original and such a matter of pride for the locals.
Over the years, the city of Aosta has changed, following tastes and fashions to satisfy every palate. Alongside restaurants offering a menu of ultra-traditional dishes, you will find wine bars and wine shops offering simple yet tasty dishes paired with the best reds and whites of the area and beyond, as well as more exotic establishments offering Asian cuisine and top-quality sushi.
