noun plural -os
- an Italian dish of thin slices of raw meat or fish
- Vittore (vitˈtoːre). ?1460–?1525, Italian painter of the Venetian school
raw meat or fish served as an appetizer, late 20c., from Italian, often connected to the name of Renaissance painter Vittore Carpaccio (c.1460-1526) but without any plausible explanation except perhaps that his pictures often feature an orange-red hue reminiscent of some raw meat.
