It's one of those restaurants that have been around for quite a while, but despite its age (or, in fact, exactly because of it) it managed keep its "realness". Instead of asking for the menu, just let the maître d' (which also happens to be the owner, while his parents, ex-owners, help him around as waiters... he is also the... More

Located in a local neighbourhood a short walk from central Pula. It's a no frills trattoria with traditional homemade food. Fuzi with gravy was tasty! Side vegetables were wonderful. Fish broderico was heavy - Better suited to wintertime eating. Worth a visit if you're in the neighbourhood.

Terrific place: bit out of the centre of the city but very walkable and worth the effort. We booked for dinner and were not disappointed although some menu items were not available because they had all gone at lunchtime.

The place is hard to find and the working hours are a bit strange but the food is excellent and the prices are reasonable. Great place to fall in love with traditional and affordable Istrian cuisine.

This is a simple family conducted restaurant or maybe its better to call it "osteria". The food is delicious home made stuff, it reminds me of my grandma kitchen. If you go there try boskarin meat, or some calamari. The chef waiter is a very pleasant and helpful. Highly recommended!!!

I have given this place an average rating but it is a little bit better than that, though not near a very good rating. This is home cooking brought to the restaurant table, it has lots of pasta and quite heavy sauces and not enough dishes on the lighter side. Very much a winter destination.

Vodnjanka is my favourite trattoria in town, a temple of real Istrian cuisine! Don't miss the homemade cakes made by Moris!!!
