One of many visits but have not reviewed before. Small family run restaurant which focuses on consistently good freshly made food. Different to the other tourist oriented restaurants in town. Special mention for the home made pasta and the local Boskarin dishes.

Located in a lovely hidden street, unassuming restaurant with charming outdoor tables. The hosts were friendly and helpful. We had the beef salad and the squid stew that was absolutely perfect and tasty. However I sincerely hope that they never take the lemon mousse with...shaved truffle off the menu. It was outstanding! We actually went back the next day and got it for our take away dessert.More

We came here on a Thursday night late and they accommodated us. We had the best meal. We decided to return on the Saturday night. Something which I would not normally do on a holiday as there is so many different places to try and...I’m so glad we did. As we didn’t book a table we did have to eat inside which we didn’t mind as we really wanted to eat there again so I do recommend that you book a table in advance if you want to enjoy the outside terrace. The food is beautiful here and the service is great to match! We hope to return again someday soon! Thank you!More

Fantastic and cosy restaurant near the centre of the city. The ambience is very nice both inside and on the terrace outside. The staff was very attentive and the food was even better! I ate ravioli with shrimp tails and fresh black truffles, for anyone...who loves truffles this is a great option! If you ever find yourself in Novigrad, this restaurant is a must!More

We were a large group and they were very patient with us. We were able to reserve with them, many restaurants do not accept dinner reservations in high season. The food was delicious and the wine list very good. The location in a quiet courtyard...is perfect. Would definitely return there!More

Great location, great service but for was just average. Not bad but nothing memorable. Scallops were very dry and extremely overpriced. Same with octopus, too chewy and crunchy on top.

Situated in the calming streets of Novigrad this restaurant is quite a gem. Fresh fish and sea food, nice staff, cleanines and atmosphere make this place exceptional.

Outstanding dining experience(s) at Gatto Nero. Both times we received excellent personable service from the only person serving front of house, incredible Istrian food (beef cheeks, pasta with truffle, local wine, bread and cheese), all for a very reasonable price. As the title says, so...good we went twice!More

When you step into the restaurant you instantly feel welcomed. The decor is modern, but has an old-time charm. We were seated in the inside dining area, which is bright and cozy. It's a cozy place to enjoy your meal. The menu is diverse and...is well presented. I had homemade ravioli filled with cheese and black truffles on top, it was amazing. The staff is very kind and attentive.More

This was one amazing experience. The best restaurant not only in Novigrad, but on the whole Istrian coast. The food was so good, traditional and homemade ( I tried boskarin cheeks in teran which was so tender and delicios as well as the octopus salad)....The atmosphere makes you feel welcome and the service is so kind and professional. I highly recommend it!More

Delightful dinner in a lovely garden with good food and wine, topped off by attentive and friendly service staff. We had been a group of 5 with dogs without a reservation and were lucky enough to get a table. Within a short period of time...the place filled up. Our waiter was polite and welcomed us professionally yet relaxed. He was knowledgeable on the menu and daily offers and worked swiftly. I informed the waiter about my food intolerances which was taken seriously, and the waiter answered my questions patiently. He assured me that whenever possible they try to make adjustments to dishes to suit someone’s dietary requirements, which is manageable as dishes are prepared from scratch. However, according to the waiter, when really busy it might not be fully possible due to limited resources and kitchen space. Our group received an entrée (“kitchen greeting”), and I had been served with a dish specially made for me (to suit my dietary requirements), which I do not take for granted and appreciate highly, as it isn’t common practice. It also happened to match my taste ideally. The mains (fish and meat) were excellent. Tasteful, well-balanced seasoning, good texture, generous portion size and high-quality ingredients. Dishes are made to order yet served within a reasonable time. The fish was served in an iron tray which looked rustic and made a nice visual impression which adds another point to the already lovely dinner. The menu offers typical local cuisine with quite a selection of choices that suit a broad variety of taste. They also serve dedicated gluten free dishes (veggie and meat based). The white truffle season has just started out and dishes with these are quite expensive but worth every penny. The prize ranges of the other dishes are according to expectation and justified given the quality of the food. Groups should definitely make a booking when visiting at main dinner times, but one can always try to get a table by walking in.More

Octopus carpaccio was really good. Promising. Then we had a fish plate for two - tuna, kovač, squid, scampi, kapesante and other seashells. Everything was really tasty, except the squid was a bit tough and chewy. Nice and quiet atmosphere!
