Absolutely delicious with service to match

Most delicious seafood I've had in memory. Fabulous location on Romantic quiet side street. First rate staff and wine to boot. Can't imagine a better find in rovinj.

This restaurant was recommended by Croatian friends and had a good review on frankaboutrovinj. It appears to be popular with the locals as well as tourists. Right after we were seated ( we did have reservations), the restaurant filled to capacity with a queue waiting to get in. It's an easy find up a small incline across from the art... More

The food was very good, we had both fish, me pasta alla pescatora (with fish) and my boyfriend mixed grilled fish. It was really tasty. We had millefoglie for dessert, a really good dessert suggested by the waiter. The location is really nice among the little streets of the old town. The service was fast and always very available.

We visited after reading reviews and booked a table via our hotel after confirming they would accommodate vegetarians in our party of four. They happily agreed to this for us. The vegetarians were given one choice for a main course ravioli with truffle and berries and salad for starter, these were not on a menu but offered due to our... More

The atmosphere on the stunning stone square and the delicious sparkling rose wine were the best parts of dinner. We both ordered fresh pasta with seafood but did not find it as extraordinary as most of the guidebooks and reviews indicated But a very good dinner nonetheless.

Great tasting seafood and a nice outside terrace. Service is good considering how busy they are but having heard good things I was a little underwhelmed given that this is an expensive option in Rovinj.

Food is good and well prepared although nothing creative and a tad on the heavy side. Prices are higher than competition although the quality and experience is not better. Housewine is very good though. A good restaurant priced like an excellent restaurant.

Having picked this restaurant from T.A. we found it on one of the narrow alleys leading away from the main square. We were told it was a one hour wait for a terrace table. While we were offered an inside table it sounded like second best, but went for it and once in were delighted with the ambience and feel... More

When we arrived we worked out that Giannino is owned by the same owners as Bar Rio and Puntulina and our waiter confirmed this fact to us when we saw all three venues names on the bottle of olive oil on the tables... We had recently dined at Puntulina (and very much enjoyed it) but were a little disappointed that... More

We followed a recommendation of our host, who referred to the restaurant as the one with the freshest fish in town. We started with the fish carpaccio and tuna tartar. The arrangement was nice, but the fish did not catch up with the presentation. Main dish was a turbot, which was ok but not as special as the bill in... More
