“Lovely ambience....at a price”
Reviewed November 2, 2011

One of the most sophisticated restaurants in Pula, in the lovely Villa Madau Hotel, in a pretty piazzetta behind the main piazza. Charming waiter and a rare example of real thought given to the artistic furnishings. The food was fresh, well presented and homemade but ravioli too soft with no discernable filling (bietola...type of spinach apparently) and tagliatelle too hard with dissappointing cozze). The bill at €40 a head for shared starters, pasta course and shared desert, plus wine, coffee and digestivi was far too high despite the ambiance.

“Lovely terrace”
Reviewed September 22, 2011

We ate here twice during our 2 weeks in Pula. There is a lovely big terrace which is less busy than the terraces of the restaurants on the main square of Pula so if you have not booked you do actually have a chance of getting a table here (very important on a Saturday night in August). The menu is quite limited but the food is good, expecially the fresh fish and Nonna's spaghetti (grandmother's spaghetti). The service was fine - they were always busy but very pleasant and willing. As always in Sardinia, the children were quite welcome. The wine was very good and not particularly expensive.

Just a quick word on how to find it - it is on a square that is just a couple of minute's walk from the main square opposite San Giovanni's church (outside which there are sometimes street artists performing that you can see from the restaurant).
