We use there ... when we talk about something for the first time, to say that it exists.

e.g.: There is a new restaurant in Main Street.

We use it to refer to a particular thing, place, fact, situation, etc.

e.g.: We went to the new restaurant. It is very good. (It refers to the restaurant)

We also use it in sentences like this:

It is dangerous to walk in the road. (It refers to to walk in the road)

It is also used to talk about distance, time, and weather:

e.g.: It is going to be a nice day.
