Elizabetes 61, Riga, Latvia

Improve this listing
Ranked #193 of 512 restaurants in Riga
Cuisines: International
Description: Tinto wine restaurant was quite a surprise. It is hidden under massive building right beside, to my mind, the most beautiful cinema in Europa - cinema "Riga". It turned out that Tinto has their own entrance to the cinema which is great thing. The cuisine and service was splendid, as well as their offer of wines. If you are in Riga, i do recommend.

To say it isn't a restaurant shows how stupid most Italians are! No pizza? Sorry this is fine dining in a relaxed environment. The beer is superb as is all the food we have consumed tonight. Finish with cocktails next door in skyline lounge cheap as chips with best view in Europe

….but a wine bar, with a few tables outdoors. Of course, you can eat something. Wines by the glass are normal. The young waitress is kind. Correct the prices.

Located in the arms of old cinema ''Riga'' building, this is a tiny place where to enjoy a glass of wine of two. The food menu is not too big and I have tried mainly salads and I think the prices are a bit too high for what's on the offer. I have met very friendly staff in there and... More

After a risotto and a pasta for lunch with my wife -- who was flying back home that afternoon -- I decided this was an ideal place for dinner on my own that same evening. I was lucky, because during this week in May a number of restaurants offered a three-course "Spring Menu" for a modest price; and Tinto offered... More

The place is nice and "warm". You can taste a lot of wine from different country around the world. There is the possibility to eat very good tapas, soups and others small dishes. The service is excellent.

I and my friend went there for a dinner. Stuff was nice. Place itself is close to center and looks nice: I don't recommend it for dinner though. We ordered fish and risotto (both were really bad) and tapas (what was kinda normal) . I also ordered dessert. What can I say - for a glass of wine with some... More

A small place, needs some more comfortable chairs. Wines are a bit overpriced, and salmon salad smelt funny (like soap). However wine bars are still not a spread-out thing for Riga, and Tinto stands out, but would need more competitive menu and faster waiters (and comfier atmosphere) to withstand the competition. I'd personally not return to it again, unless someone... More

This little wine bar/restaurant is situated next to the most glamorous baroque movie theatre in Europe. The bar has more than 300 different wines, but unluckily for us the menu only had 1 available menu. It seems one of the cooks had gone home, so they couldn't cook anything, except for one recipe. Even pasta was a bit difficult. We... More

I visited here because of the great choice of wines but ended up returning for a second visit because of the amazing "tapas" starters! The wild boar was very tasty!

This little wine bar was just a couple of blocks away from our hotel, and very well worth visiting. The selection of wines is quite good, and the prices very reasonable. Did not eat there, so can't comment on that. Would propably visit again, if staying in the neighbourhood.
