Best food ever :)

When in Motovun you simply need to visit Mondo restaurant. Beefsteak with wallnut sause is out of this world. And the people working here are extremely friendly. I recommend it to everyone :)

I went there with my husband for dinner and we were more than pleased. The quality of the food was very good. All dishes were prepared with care and tasted deliciously. As an appetizer, they offered us some home-made bread and truffle-olive tapenade. After that, we shared a vegetable risotto, to finish with the filled squid and the vegetarian dish... More

I went there with my wife for supper. I have nothing bad to say. Seriously. Just go. I'm hard to please and everything was well done. And for a great price too!!!!! A meal like that back home would have cost twice the price and the truffles would have been terrible! Pictured is the eggplant risotto with truffle. Wow.

Food and service was very very good! Thumbs up! The polenta and the housemade pasta with truffles was very delicious! I would eat at Konobo Mondo again... Everything was perfect!

Having in mind all the fame this restaurant has (marketing brought by Anthony Bourdain and NY Times), honestly I expected more. Everything we tried was good, but - in my opinion - average.

To quote my husband "every day I'm truffling." The meal started with bread and a truffle/caper spread. We then moved to a beef carpaccio with Parmesan and truffles. I had the veal for my main course, totally fine. But the star of the evening was my husband's freshly made tagliatelle with shaved truffles - perfect decadence. All washed down with... More

We arrived at the restaurant, 15 minutes before closing time. The staff however didn't mind a single bit and gave us a table. We only took main dishes. I tried the tagliata di manzo and found the meat a bit tough. My girlfriend took the lamb and that was much better. To close the deal we were even offered coffee... More

We've been to Istria three times, and Konoba Mondo three times, as well. It's a little more expensive than most restaurants in the region, but consistently excellent. The truffle pastas will not disappoint. Waitstaff is superb.
