Fantastic pasta

Went to Rovinj for the day just to have a look around and a swim, and stopped to have lunch at the Calisona as it was pretty much the only place that didn't have pushy waiters and tacky pictures of the food in the menu (yes, seriously). Average prices (and risotto) for this area, nice staff and the... read more

We ate here on recommendation and were unfortunately very disappointed. The soup needed a lot of salt as did the main course of stuffed chicken. The asparagus though looking good and very thin (like wild asparagus) had a fair few 'woody' stalks. Others had an octopus salad which they enjoyed.

The other day my wife and I were at this restaurant when coming in Rovinj. Ordered Istrinskaya mess of pottage, sea bass fillet and fillet of flounder. All the dishes were well cooked, edible, but no more. If you just want to eat, I recommend

Food here is very nice. The setting is what sells it though. Fab spot to eat and watch the world go by. Reasonably priced given where its situated in the old town. Very clean. Lasagne was lovely and the meat starter platter was a lovely selection of local produce but boy was there a lot of it!

we took the minestrone to start and the pasta with prsut and mushrooms as main dish. the minestrone was the way I like it: tasty, fresh from that day and not watery. the pasta was much above average. no tourist trap food here.

i went with my girlfriend to Rovnj, and everything was great except this restaurant. It was 7pm, almost empty, we wanted to have a pancake and beer, but the waiter asked us to leaver as we aren't ordering dinner!!!!???? That is real hospitality for you.... If you want to eat great food go to Balbi.

Although more than 50% of tables were free, the waiter refused to serve pancakes and water, with an excuse that they serve full dinner only. That said, he also gave us an offensive comment that we can buy cheap pancakes round the corner.

Walked by this restaurant and decided to stop in for a light dinner. Enjoyed the quality of the food and service. A good choice considering the many "touristy" looking restaurants around town.
