Giannino is one of the few still original restaurants in Rovinj where you can eat traditional foods! Very charming, best reserve a table in the outside.

Wonderful restaurant located at the top of a narrow cobbled street. We sat outside undercover on the cobbled street. Great atmosphere, food was delicious and the staff were friendly, jolly and helpful. We loved it so much we called back and had lunch later on in the week. This is a sister restaurant to Puntilina's and Rio.

We booked well in advance but the restaurant had no record of our reservation. The first person we spoke to was decidedly grumpy and was not willing to put himself out for us however, one of the lovely waiters offered us a time limited table outside which was perfect. We had gnocchi with scallops - light fluffy gnocchi with a... More

This is "probably" the best fish restaurant in Rovinj , where Puntulina is the second . 200 meter from square, and you are in another world - trust me it's worth the small walk ! GIannino is so unpretentious - a real osteria/ gostionica as it supposed to be - not about expensive interior , but about GRAND food. Prices... More

This restaurant has seen its glory days. The food was average and preparations not particularly original. When I have asked for a small birthday cake for my daughter at the time of booking (2 days in advance), the owner of the restaurant told me that they were too busy and could not help me with this. I doubt about the... More

I didn't have to book and went around 8 p.m finding a table. The food was very good and prices were fair (appetizer+main course+sorbet was around 30€). Service was a bit slow, but very kind. I definitely recommend it!

Arrogant and very rude staff. I booked a table for four but we were given a small table for two. Squashed and not pleasant evening. Food was nothing special and too expensive!
