Frequented by Italians, Vegetarian and family-friendly.

Captained by an Italian chef and decorated with Venice in mind, Little Italy is currently one of the most popular St Petersburg Italian restaurants. A small charming trattoria, Little Italy’s atmosphere of chatter and quaint interiors with wooden benches attract even native Italians to its doors. Vegetarians will love the menu, as vegetarian pizza and other diet-friendly dishes are healthy yet delicious alternatives to the usual fare. If you’re visiting Saint Petersburg with your family, the filling children menu is another great plus point, so give it a try.

Basement bar, Value-for-money food, Great seafood risottos.

Cozily hidden away in a basement near Kazan Street, once you pass through Testo’s understated entrance, you will enter a quaint modern whitewashed interior with low hanging lights. Meaning dough in Russian, Testo offers the most value-for-money among the many St Petersburg Italian restaurants. It sits in the city’s historic quarter, a stone’s throw away from St Isaac’s Cathedral. Stop by for an espresso or some of the cheap house wines. Everything - from the ciabatta and focaccia bread and fish soups to the pizza, pasta and hot dishes – tastes excellent.
