Great pasta!

Ivo Restaurant was recommended to us by our Slovenian private guide. We visited the restaurant in December, for dinner. It was the low season so there was just another table occupied, besides us. We ordered the calamari as starter. As we had a big fish the night before we had decided to just... read more

I ate here once on my short visit to Piran. I ordered fried octopus with fries. Best thing about the octopus is that they make it so crisp. I love it and I had to eat it because where I come from I rarely get something like this.

We went on a cold October night and sitting in their heated glassed-in terrace for dinner watching the sunset was just perfect. Fish soup was delicious and really warmed us up. Next was the seafood risotto, very fresh with squid, scampi and mussels very well made. Seabream was very nicely grilled and served as fillets with spinach. Their house Malvazjia... More

This fish for two was delicious (coming in a heated steel bowl) and can be highly recommended (expect to pay 45€), along with the local White. As starters we had grilled squids and a mixed salad, which were also good, yet not outstanding. However, our waitress was delivering outstanding service!

This place was recommended by a local in a nearby bar and it was a good choice. The first night it was fairly empty and we had a nice fishy dinner: clams, sole, carpaccio of seabass. Friendly waitress, well-priced wine. Good value. The following night the place we had selected was full so we returned. Ivo, too was packed with... More

We had grilled shrimps and grilled squids with cooked potatoes and some spinach, a mixed salad and Greek salad and two glasses of wine. The food was very tasty and the price was reasonable. The service was OK if a bit slow.

Picked this restaurant based on other reviews. Expected good service and food. However, the food was appalling. Scampi risotto was overcooked and had parts of mussels in it. The fish we had for main dish was supposed to be wild and fresh, but the meat was stringy and the fish tasted like one coming from a fish farm. The only... More

We had calamari several times while we stayed in Piran. Ivo had the best. If you go ordering the grilled calamari is a must.
