So most will say the Schnitzel comes from Vienna and while the story goes; the classic dish may have originated in northern Italy as the costoletta alla milanese, a similarly prepared but thicker veal cutlet. Legend has it that in 1857 the famous Austrian field marshal Count Joseph Radetzky brought the recipe back to Vienna from the Italian territories under Habsburg rule.
