This is our top restaurant in Istria. They serve perfect food based on recipes of their grandmother. Original and tasty food, no sea food. Offer of foods is small and also for this reason the quality is top. Also quantities are appropriate. You may start...and finish with just an introductory meal.More

Food straightforward No fensy-shmensy pretentions. Cold antipasti. Pasta, gnoci, beefs, stakes, sausages, and quite some truffles. That is all - and nothing more is needed. In cosy traditional environment and not pretentious hospitality.

We had a family lunch in Malo Selo. The restaurant is beautifully styled in Istrian design. We had gnocchi and “fuzi” with truffles, both were great. Highly recommend for truffle lovers

We discovered Malo Selo by chance, searching for a quick lunch after wandering through Istrian inlands. Luckily, they had a free table. We only ordered different types of pasta and it was excellent! Home made, with perfect sauces. Will definitely return for the full experience....The service was kind, too.More

Impeccable service, fantastic, homemade products prepared in an enviable quality manner. Istrian prosciutto, mixed sheep's and cow's cheese, past fushi with “boskarin” and the beef steak with black truffle. Great wine list of recognizable local wineries ... one of the best gastronomic experiences this summer...... Besprijekorna usluga, fantastični, domaći proizvodi pripremljeni na zavidno kvalitetan način. Istarski pršut, mješani ovčje i kravlji sir, fuži s boškarinom i beef steak s crnim tartufom. Odlična vinska karta prepoznatljivih lokalnih vinarija... jedno od najboljih gastro iskustava ovog ljeta...More

Dear Sir, sorry about inconvenience related with your visit to Malo selo, but you must read this. On thet date when you were there in Fratria, this family had a death case, the owner of the restaurant Neda Marusic (the mom) died. The entire family was not thinking that day about konoba and note about that still wasn't online. My apologies in that name. last thursday they re-opened konoba and i'm sure that the family will give their best to continue the name and tradition that mamma Neda started. I'm a close friend of the family and i'm asking you to remove this comment because the situation wasn't pleasent at all, Afterall they'we just had funeral in family and cooments like this aren't helping in situatuion they have. As well once when you are back in Istria, reservate a table on their mail on website. I'm sure you will see why guests tehre arw like family (know from my experience). And as they say, third is a luck. Thank you in advance, Filomena

I agree that there may have been some organizational problem this past summer, due to the sudden death of Neda, as reported by Filomena. I heard about it while I was in the area in August and felt very sorry for the family... More

Hi there! We don't have that in our standard menu, but we could prepare If requested (if you let note few days earlier). We are famous for our beefstaks, roast-beef, fiorentinas, grilled pork and home made sausages... More
