Best pasta ever

Been there for an relaxing dinner. Fast and professional service. Prosciutto an ricotta okay but the portion was a bit small. Tried pasta with local herbs - an absolute winner if in mood for such meal. All senses gone high! Good wine and dessert. Will come again!

We booked Vodnjanka based on the review we found at a travel guide book and we were extremely disappointed. First of all The place is really hard to find at night with a small dark sign. For appetizers we had the polenta which was tasteless and mushroom soup which not as mediocre as the polenta. Ravioli with truffle sauce was... More

We tried this place for dinner based on a Lonely Planet recommendation. The woman who worked there was very nice. The man who served us was very odd. First when we tried to order a 1/2 carafe of wine, he said "no more". We were puzzled. I asked if it was the house white wine and he said "no, we... More

We read the reviews and liked the ones about "barn with chic modern" plus really great food at a very fair price in this fascinating, unspoiled, ancient town. Valerie and Ian

Having visited Istria three years ago, this was the best restaurant we visited back then - and we went to places in Pula, Rovinj, Porec, and a few rural places too. Decided to go back this year and we were not disappointed. Not as cheap as Konoba places but still very good value for money as the food is a... More

Worth visiting, very good homemade Istrian food, valuable price, the only downside of the place is that it gets too crowded at the evening what results in very slow service.

So far the best restaurant in Rovinj/Pula/Vodnjan. Excellent food, great service, very reasonable prices. Will surely come again even if we have to drive a bit out of our way.
