The couple that runs the place (Hrubek(?) and Patricia) are as nice as can be, very welcoming. We had delicious pasta (more than we could eat, really) and a quaffable vin ordinaire for 125 kuna (about $23).
It's easy to find, right off Karrera St. They deliver pizzas, too, if you don't feel like going out.
