Cuttlefish ink risotto is a typical Venetian cuisine dish, also popular in other Mediterranean cuisines (e.g., Spanish Arroz negro).

Created as a poor man’s dish, where the cuttlefish, with all its ink, was combined with rice, initially without a risotto process, later spread in Croatia with the Venetian dominion and Friuli (where it is still a typical dish). Later in most of the Mediterranean, thanks mainly to Venetian merchants.
