Restaurant with good atmosphere. Children friendly. Serves Italian and Croatian dishes. They have home made grissini, pasta is always a good choice. The service is guest orientated. Good for family, but also for business lunch or dinner.

By name Il Secondo, I was expecting a cheap decorated tratoria with pizza, pasta and fast food. Already at the entrance I was surprised with modern, minimalist interior. It's not something great, but it's very nice. Menu card is good, the prices are normal. Food is very good, and another pleasant surprise is the wine list. Very nice wine list with fair priced. The staff is pleasant and professional. Novi Zagreb finally has a solid restaurant.

New Zagreb (Novi Zagreb) was long notorious for not having one decent place to eat. With Il Secondo, this has changed, in my opinion at least.
They serve good homemade pasta and decent meat. The setting is cosy - both families and couples/groups of friends will feel welcome.
The service does tend to be hit-or-miss, probably depending on how busy it is.

It's worth noting that the restaurant is near to the Museum of Modern Art, so that can be a good combo.

Novi Zagreb is not having so many restaurants, nor it is a posh area where you'd go for such place, but Il Secondo is a good excuse to cross the river Sava and come over for a nice pasta meal. I haven't tried steaks althoug others said it's great, but I sticked to pasta only.
It doesn't matter which one you order, everything is great. You don't get al dente that often and there they mastered it. Only once it happened that it was overcooked, but i can live with 1 out of 10 missess.
Service is normal, nothing special, not so pretentious. Cool urban atmosphere, music not too loud so you can enjoy the conversation, and interior is normal, minimalism, nothing stretching out.

When going for desert, go for chocolate suffle... it is almost on the same level like chocolate dream in Bistro Apetit
