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 pasta was homemade and outstandingly good, there was a terrific roast and a really good fish stew. The atmosphere is... More

Wonderful "homemade" food. I had the veal roast and it was amazing. The staff did however mess up the other orders, and failed to tell us that they where out of what they wanted. So I got my meal, then 5 minutes later my friend got hers. And then again 5 minutes later the last plate arrived. I would go... More

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!!!

Just to clear something up. Vodnjanka is not a brand name. It just means a girl from Vodnjan. The restaurant in Vodnjan, so far as I know, has nothing to do with the one in Pula. They just happen to both go by the same name. The one in Pula is like having a meal cooked by your favourite grandmother.... More
