Not Only Restaurants

Some strange and picturesque names of restaurants and eateries: “Magazzino” (Warehouse) in “Viale Caprera”.“El Gringo” in “Corso Amedeo”.My first... “Ristopub”! This is in “Via Buia” (Dark Street).

I wonder what I'd be having tonight in that Ristopub.

Great set of images and names for restaurants!

Hilda said...

Shops and restaurants do choose the strangest names sometimes. Warehouse is a clothing store here, though I like the looks of yours better. And LOL at your ristopub — here it's restobar. :D

Guess it might be of interest to write a small book about them, maybe discovering some great stories behind those names.

Please have a good Tuesday.

Very strange things in Livorno!

"Warehouse" of what? Vino?

"El Gringo" - isn't that Spanish?

"Old West Ristopub"? I have no clue what that's all about.

Do some Livornese (sp?) have a thing for the mythological "old west" of the U.S. 19th century?

Very funny, though!

Those are great. Now which one to pick, all of them!

Fun! It seems like any theme you choose you find plenty of convincing examples to show us. :)

Very interesting. It would be nice to know the reasoning behind each name. MB

I love 'Ristopub' - what a delightful name:)

Exploring each one for a drink or two might reveal some interesting background information. Worth a try!

There is a Kofibar near the UN building in New York...

Kofibar at the UN, lol.
These are funny, especially the ristopub. I wonder if we have restopubs here, I'll keep an eye open!

B SQUARED said...

I'd love to try every one of them.

Cezar and Léia said...

Funny session of restaurant and names!
I have no idea what could be that "ristopub", maybe pasta with beer?
