Hello, venice

From its unmatched romantic vibes to its historical heritage to its indisputable beauty, there is no other city like Venice. The "Queen of the Adriatic" is composed of a maze of islands, canals, and bridges, which hide magnificent buildings, historical landmarks of great artistic and cultural importance, as well as charming restaurants and squares. There are no cars in Venice, but you won't need them anyway since "The City of Bridges" is best explored on foot.

Ristorante Vini Da Pinto

Ristorante Vini Da Pinto is situated right across from the Rialto Fish Market, which means a daily fresh selection of locally caught fish and crustaceans–just ask for the special of the day. Seafood specialities served all year round include spaghetti alle vongole (clams), tagliatelle all’astice (lobster), and seppie al nero (squid in its ink). You can choose to enjoy your meal either outside or in its rustic-chic interior featuring ancient stone pillars, bare brick walls, and beams from the 14th century.
