New in town or just visiting? Here we share our roundup of our favorite restaurants in Saint Petersburg!
We’re going to start the list by highlighting the restaurant, Alesia. This restaurant offers a delicious take on Vietnamese and French fusion cuisine. You cannot go wrong with their Pho, Bun Mi, or Bok Choy dishes. (We personally love their Bok Choy with Tofu!) It offers a very fun atmosphere, quaint and natural – lots of light. The service has been exceptional every time we visit!
Next up on the list is BellaBrava. If you’re looking for authentic and tasty Italian cuisine, this is your spot. The folks at BellaBrava describe it as “New World Trattoria is where our vineyard-lined dreams have come alive.” We couldn’t agree more. We really dig the European style outdoor seating and views of St. Pete Pier. Our favorite dishes are the Linguini con Vongole entree and the Prosciutto Di Parma and Asparagus pizza. You really can’t go wrong with any of their pizza options. Delicioso!
The Moon Under Water offers a relaxed atmosphere to diners. Add to that, specials on tap and their notable dishes including Curry & Fries and Chana Masala and you will find this a fun place to grab some grub. Bonus – this tavern also offers outdoor dining. Service was good, too!
Love your vino? We do too. That’s why we love Annata Wine Bar! The ambience is chic, they offer a diverse wine list by the glass and bottle. This place is great if you like charcuterie… We also enjoy the Pistachio Encrusted Scallops and the Gnocchi Sorrentina dishes… It’s location– the waterfront of Straub Park — is just perfect and the service we received while we have dined there has been as well.
To round off our top five, we choose Red Mesa Restaurant! Why? The dishes are delicious and creatively inspired, the vibe in the restaurant is contagious — happy, smiling people– service was outstanding! If you like Mexican food — you must visit. Our picks are the Shrimp Aguachile and the Duck Enchiladas. Be sure to try the Strawberry Sangria when you’re there. You cannot go wrong at this place!
