A taste of who we are…

If you got as far as here it means we have something in common: love for chocolate. Because, let’s face facts, chocolate is really impossible to resist. And as we have turned this passion into a profession, we know this truly well.

VizioVirtù started its adventure in 2005 when we opened our first chocolate factory, a chocolate shop able to cater for even the most demanding palates (including ours) and to make Venice an even sweeter town.

And it’s right in the heart of the Laguna, between Rialto and San Marco square, where VizioVIrtù is located. Why we have chosen this corner in Venice is soon explained. Right where Marco Polo lived, spices, coffee and cocoa powder were traded. Yes, cocoa powder, our preferred ingredient, the one which is never missing in our chocolate shop.

Chocolate is the Gods’ (and the gluttons’) food

From Latin America to Venice, chocolate has gone a long way. And although there have been many changes since the Aztecs, the benefits of cocoa have remained the same. Chocolate gives energy, is good for the skin and is mood-lifting.

Yet, if after all these years chocolate continues surprising us for its goodness, all the credit goes to the Maestri Cioccolatieri. It’s them who continue making it in always different ways, turning it more mouthwatering thanks to the adding of tantalizing ingredients. And there is more to it, as it isn’t just the flavours that make the difference but the shape too. Taste it to believe it. And now tell us, after all this sweet talking, who would like to taste a chocolate praline?
