I used to come to Pula and not know where to go to eat. This is not the case anymore since I always go back to Vodnjanka. I love this place. It is family run and cosy. The food is traditional and very good! I always take the desert cake with cream, fresh cheese and nuts (ask for the "skuta... More

The host of our Airbnb recommended this restaurant to us. We had asked for a place that served good local food. It was in a bit of a tricky location, in Pula it's hard to find the street names. ( Getting back to the centre of the Old City was a breeze once we knew the way). Eventually we arrived... More

We had a lovely extensive lunch (like dinner in these areas) in this small family run tratoria. We had a party of six including 2 children. They do not have a fixed menu but name the dailies they have. If I am correct mum also still cooks as well. If you want to come close to Istrian food this is... More

Reservation is a must. Decent prices for great food quality. Bread could be home made. A bit of a parking problem.

We have been coming here for years but this time got blown away. Ask for sheep prosciutto. Cow prosciutto, salami, cheeses,....to die for. We chose meat menu which came with the softest lamb we could have imagined. At the end try bombardino but do make sure you are notr driving.

Best place we visited during our stay here. Extremely friendly and cozy. They had two menu alternatives (seafood or meat), which included appetiser and main for 150 kuna. Appetiser was an excellent exhibition of local produce (sausages, salami, prosciutto, and cheese - the sheep cheese was to die for). Olive oil and vinegar are also local, as are most if... More
