We enjoyed the experience. The polenta was definitely a highlight and we also enjoyed the tagliatelle. The gnocchi, however, although homemade was a little tough and lacking in truffle flavour (despite a lot of shavings on top). Everything was very rich and full of cream. An experience for sure, not the kind of dining you'd want every day however. Service... More

We have eaten at a lot of wonderful restaurants around the world, but this may go down as the very best. Since we were in Istria, we decided to go all out with the truffles, and weren't disappointed. We started with the Black Truffle Cheese, Istrian Ham (Pršut), and Black Truffle Tapenade. We thought we were in heaven; then our... More

A friend recommended this restaurant and we were impressed. The food was delicous. We enjoyed the mixed starter plate, the homemade bread and the specialities with truffles. The service was excellent. The food was definitely worth the slightly higher price. Just enjoy!

Make reservations, especially during the high tourist season. I had the black truffle risotto as an appetizer. It is listed as an entrée, however the waiter said they could do a half portion after I told him I was undecided between the black truffle risotto and the beef with almond sauce. Boy was I grateful! The risotto was delicious with... More

This place is expensive, BUT, even if you just stop in for a coffee and snack, it's worth it. Try their homemade truffle cheese. They also served us a complimentary app of fresh bread and a homemade spread of olives, capers and truffles - divine! If it's not too hot, sit outside to enjoy people watching and taking in this...

Very friendly staff and lovely food in a great setting. I chose the creamy polenta with parmesan and polenta and it was superb! We had a fantastic lunch and would recommend this restaurant to others.

We ate at various well reviewed places around Istria but this place stood as very very good. Recommended any of the risotto or pasta dishes, especially those with creme, cheese or truffles. Book ahead for a decent table outside. Excellent staff.
