Although this restaurant was rated only 16th on Trip Advisor, we were so impressed on our first visit that we went again. The inside restaurant has recently been refurbished and it has been done to the highest quality. The seafood is second to none beating anywhere that I have eaten in all the places that I have travelled to! An... More

We had dinner here on a Sunday evening when the place was hiving. The outside terrace was full so we agreed to a table inside, just along the little street. This was a stroke of luck. The decor is like a wine cellar, with lots of exposed brick and an entire wall furnished by wine bottles. It's all very understated... More

Giannino, run by Nereo Pellizzer, in my opinion is one of the best restaurants in Rovinj. TripAdvisor needs to up its ratings! Three reasons, excellent fresh seafood, superb local wine list along with excellent service. There are many restaurants in Rovinj, this one is not to be missed. We started our meal with grilled calamari and shrimp, along with a... More

Went there on recommendation of guide book and thought it was lovely. We booked lunchtime for that evening and had mushroom ravioli followed by mixed fish which comprised of a lobster, langoustine/crevettes, and large prawns, all washed down with a nice local wine. Gigi is the main waiter and runs a tight ship. Thoroughly recommended for a special occasion. Eat... More

We just went there a few days ago after reading some of the reviews here. We were disappointed. We were looking for simple but well cooked Italian food. We ordered the spaghetti with bongole and seafood salad. They were both very bland with no flavor. There were only clams in one half of the pasta bowl and oiled pasta in... More

Delicious seafood and pasta dishes with efficient and friendly service. Plenty of visiting Italians so it must be good!

Great new look, food and waiter Nikola perfect as usual. Giannino is one of the most popular restaurants in Rovinj and this was not our first time here so we are happy that the quality is still the same. We will definitely come again!

We had a late lunch and went back for dinner another day. Ravioli with truffles were so excellent at lunch that we had them again on our return visit. Scampi with "buzzara" sauce, scampi and grilled squid, branzino cooked in the oven with cherry tomatoes, zucchini and potatoes were all delicious. The house Malvasia recommended by Gigi went down nicely.

The 'outside' part with a ceiling and tables proximate can be a terrible experience for non-smokers.
