MILLE FOGLIE- desert you have to have at least once in your life

Not much to say apart from that the desert is a must. Interior is cute and “on subject” (Mediterranean), staff is pleasant, food is good, a bit too expensive for what is offered. In short, really nice restaurant with good food and service. I would go back for the desert :)

Great food and such a pleasant atmosphere. Ravioli with truffles were the best thing I've ever tasted!

Visited this restaurant on the basis of its excellent reviews. We were pleased initially - the menu was really attractive and a bit different from the norm, the ambience was good and the staff were friendly. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to expectations. We were rushed with ordering, it wasn't clear what the dishes comprised of, the food itself was... More

We visit this restaurant when we see its partner restaurant with Rio Bar at Rovinj. When we get food, it looks nothing special, typical food, small portions, and not good quality. We are soo dissapointed, never too go there!! Most expensive launch at Rovinj, but poor quality!!

We ended up here when we were told our reservation at their sister restaurant, Puntolino was closed for the season. The food was really good, but after eating out in all parts of Croatia for 8 nights in a row, this place seemed middle of the road. Food was delicious, wine choice was great coming from Istra, seafood was fresh... More

This restaurant was recommended to us the hotel concierge and it did not disappoint. The sea food was excellent, and the service was first class, and the ambiance was great except for the 4 loud American school girls who sat next to us! Yes, we are Americans too.

The seafood at our dinner at Giannino's did not disappoint. We asked the waiter for recommendations and he brought out a platter with two or three fresh fish on it and we chose the one to be cooked whole for the three of us. The personable waiter deboned the fish for us at the table--the fish came with potatoes, garlic,... More

Following local recommendation we enjoyed trying local cuisine, interesting mixed entree plate, followed by generous & delicious grilled seafood platter with nice local wine. Had great waiter with good sense of humour. He treated us to the local spirit to finish our wonderful meal.
