Nikolai treated us well. Brought platter of fresh fish and described to fit our taste and appetite. Prepared well. Spaghetti cooked al dente as should. Worth finding off tourist walk.

Read about it in Frommer's guide. While off the beaten track, do search it out for a gastronomic experience that will be unforgettable! We spent a leisurely couple of hours. The service was fab, we were first shown our Sea Bass, caught that morning before it was baked with vegetables, then the waiter prepared it at our table, butterflying it... More

Spent almost three hours here on an excellent meal. Gigi took an interest in us, helping us pick what to eat and in what portions. He also curated the wines according to the course - I really appreciated the recommendations, not only were they great but also clarifying for those not too familiar with the tastes of the region. Definitely... More

Best service we've had in Croatia. Food was phenomenal. The grilled fish plate had 5-6 different seafoods on it. The wine and beer were excellent and well chosen by the server. We loved our visit.

I was here with a large group of friends during the Unknown Music Festival in September and although the weather was hugely disappointing, this place was the food highlight, not only of the holiday but of my year. The service was brilliant, the waiter was very helpful and knew what he was talking about, they produced two dishes for our... More

We arrived to Rovinj on New years eve. We were looking for a restaurant where we'll wait New year but everything was already booked. We found Giannino on tripadvisor and we got table for two there, because someone cancelled in the last minute. The owner welcomed us and explained that they already have set menu for the whole night. He... More

The restaurant was recommended to us by a local. It is somewhat off the main tourist drag and in a very quiet location. We sat indoors as it was very cold in the evening when we were there. The ambience was warm and homely - it wasn't crowded as it was off season but we saw quite a number of... More

Base on my own experience .. Its better to have a good look to menu price list , and to ask about total service and tax before you eat.. the food is OK But try not to eat late evening!!
