Fantastic meal!

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of our host. It was the perfect place to have our first dinner in Rovinj! The restaurant is located on a small street away from the main square. We started with the Istrian appetizer plate of assorted fish - a perfect start. Then we split the... read more

This restaurant is slightly off the beaten track. However the service and the food were incredible. For a starter, I shared ravioli with truffle sauce with my girlfriend which was brilliant. For the main course I had mixed fried fish while my girlfriend had mixed grilled fish which were both tasty. The waiter gave a personal recommendation for the chef... More

Very slightly off the beaten track but still very close to the town and easy to find and get to, Giannino is an excellent seafood restaurant with a charming outdoor dining area. We craved pasta and got perfect recommendations to share: shrimps with penne, spaghetti with prawns and baby scallops and an amazing tuna steak with grilled vegetables. All were... More

after couple of years I again visited the Giannino restaurant in Rovinj. My expectations were hight, couse I remmember the times when Giannino was far the best restaurant in Rovinj. I must say after those years the restaurant still keeps the highest quality of italian food (especially seefood risotto, pasta and also raw scampis etc). Although the atmosphere isn't the... More

I love this place; we ate here twice. There's a nice air-conditioned inside but we just loved sitting in the covered area in the street. It's a great fish restaurant - simple dishes beautifully cooked. We had fantastically prepared lobster and prawns to start followed by a to-die-for whole sea bass with vegetables for two. I don't know how they... More

Such a super restaurant. Not only the dishes are good looking. Even the head waiter. Great location with super outside terrace. We went twice this week to this place. The service is great. We had the sea bass cooked in paper bag with potatoes, olives, capers and peppers and basil. Delicious. Best chocolate cake I've ever had. We will definitely... More

Make sure you book if you want an outside table. We booked a table on our way out, went to the marina for a couple of drinks and returned. Table was ready in 5 minutes. They gave us a glass of wine while we waited. Ordered bottle of same wine which was really nice. The waiters are knowledgable and happy... More

We’ve had a great time here! We wanted to eat here because of the recommendation on tripadvisor and we are so glad we did. Giovannini has a small and beautiful terrace in a little street and we wouldn’t have found without Gps, but it was worth it. We went with the ‘tasting menu’ combined with the wines of choice by...

By far the best meal we had in Rovinj. Friendly, attentive staff helped us choose a delicious fish dinner and some local wine. That's all really - it was great. Do give it a try.

We had enjoyed eating really fresh seafood while in Istria and looked forward to another amazing seafood experience at Giannino. The wait staff recommended the freshest catch of the day and he kept highly recommending the fish. We were glad we listened. All the recommendations were amazing; the mussels were so sweet, the raw platter was so fresh and we... More
