“Excellent choice for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

I heard about this place and it was recommended to me by different friends. I was not disappointed, the food was really good, prices very reasonable, service efficient and the interior just the way it should be. The place is original and has a soul. I will definitely go back.

“nice, but not extraordinary”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

went there for a dinner, before I have had the chance to see other reviews. menu is on daily bases, so it is a bit small (for example, did not have any pasta dish when we were there) portions can be small too, depends what you order.

we had potato and mushroom soup, was ok. then had mini burgers - avoid it. too dry, below average. boyfriend had ramsteak - was delicious. walnut pie - excellent dessert!

considering the fact that it is in the center of city, prices are ok (ramsteak with side dish 90kn, mini burgers 40kn, soup 25kn, walnut pie 15kn).

nice service. would come back, but the quality of meal is uncertain.

“Scorched food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

We were on a business meeting and after that we decided to go to Lari&Penati. Instead of tasty food we received chicken wings that were scorched and burnt. Service was also not so good.

“most of times value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

Most of times its like that, sometimes it can happen that they disappoint, but thats because i ve been there more then 100 times:-) , i really like the place, food is delicious, sometimes it can happen you get small portion, esp for salads, and sometimes it can happen they miss the dish, like that risotto thing, but i know it so stay away from it, safest are some food that is always good , one for 90 HRK is always worth money, or chicken wings, and pork ......its delicious, and service is really nice compared to Croatian standards!!! Love the music every time i go there, negatives are if you did not reserve your place you may find yourself in a bad position:-) ...but service and waiters are really OK

“Nice place for food lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Nice, easy meals with correct wine chart. Located in downtown, not exactly adequate for families with children (high stools!), but we had few nice saturday luches. Definitely worth the visit.
