It all started in Rovinj, back in the year 1972., when Corrado Pellizzer opened the door of his first fish restaurant Giannino. Corrado, son of a fisherman, decided to use his vast knowledge about the sea to create and serve food that brings out the full taste of the sea and reminds him of his childhood.
Corrado Pellizzer is responsible for building a tradition that last decades. With his skillful hands and bright spirit, he is among the best chefs of his generation. Even to this day, he cooks with ease and passion.
Together with his two sons Giovanni and Nereo, he manages Giannino and two other restaurants. The incredibly beautiful and romantic Puntulina and newly renovated historic Rio bar.
Tradition that lasts for over three decades.
