In Venice, evening idlers stop into intimate bars for drinks and small bites called cicchetti. In St. Petersburg, downtowners call it Annata, the most fully realized wine bar on the Gulf. Thanks to Mazzaro’s, the Italian market grocery that owns the place, Annata musters a rich variety of nibbles like octopus with beet tzatziki and heftier plates of oxtail tortelloni and a brilliant, global and affordable wine list, most $10 a glass and under. It’s cin cin for couples, groups or wandering singles.
