Description: Tucked away in the quiet and peaceful old medieval alleyway just 100 meters away from Stradun, Mea Culpa is a great place for a good pizza and cold refreshment after climbing the City Walls. At Mea Culpa Pizzeria and Trattoria we promise to deliver a unique culinary experience where every dish is prepared fresh to order using only the freshest ingredients. Whether it's a romantic dinner for two in our cosy dining room, a casual lunch, or a special evening out, Mea Culpa offers you one of the best dining experiences Dubrovnik has to offer. Our talented pizza chefs at Pizzeria Mea Culpa are taught the traditional Roman methods of creating the perfect pizza. We make our pizzas with only the freshest & finest local ingredients, and bake them in our specialty high tech pizza oven. Our menu includes a large variety that suits any type of appetite, from the most traditional and unique pizza flavours, a wide array of Italian dishes, lasagnes and a selection of pasta dishes that you'd find in top of the line Italian restaurants. Besides authentic Mea Culpa Style Pizza, we feature different "DAILY SPECIALS" such as Chicken with gorgonzola or spinach, Pollo con gamberetti, Veal "Saltimbocca" and our signature dish Tagliatta "Mea Culpa." Our restaurant provides guests with casual al fresco and indoor dining. Pizzeria may receive up to twenty persons in the inside and around sixty guests on the outside terrace. With tables outside on a summer's eve, Mea Culpa's combination of great food, excellent service, and comfortable atmosphere makes this restaurant a must do-dining choice. Grab a bottle of wine and bring your friends down at Mea Culpa to try the best pizza in Dubrovnik. Come and taste the quality!

“Great Place to Eat!”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

We decided to eat here because we'd read such great reviews on Tripadvisor, and we're so pleased we did. Indeed we had such lovely food that we went again the next night....and the next night too....! We had lovely authentic pizza and pasta cooked to absolute perfection. We chose to eat outdoors - they do have heat lamps and blankets if it's nippy. It's incredibly reasonably priced, and we have to say a big thank you to our waiter, Sasa for making us feel so welcome.

“Enormous healthy meal”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Me and my boyfriend were hungry from moving and were staying in Apartment G. The waitress from Mea Culpa phoned the receptionist of the hotel to come and attend to us as we needed to put our luggage inside. The waitress said we were welcome to sit at the table and wait.
We decided to eat there I had a greek salad and chips and my boyfriend had a vegetarian pizza. We decided to share it all anyway.
The salad was so big with healthy and tasty red lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, basil and succulent feta cheese. It was better than feta cheese I had tasted before. Apparently all the food was cooked with local food. The chips were lovely and just crispy enough. The pizza too was nice. We had big portions with everything but the pizza was so big it wouldn't fit on the plate.
We had natural lemonade with this which tasted refreshing and healthy and the sweetness was just right.
For pudding my boyfriend had the cake which was home made apple strudel.
Like everything else this looked very pretty on the plate and my boyfriend enjoyed it.
The staff were friendly and easy.
The serviettes were soft and easy to wipe your mouth with.
The price was fair and when we paid they gave us a discount for the next time we came of 10%
We ate there in the evening but we didn't realise how full we were from the last meal and wasted a bit of it.
Yum <3

“Huge pizza”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Nice enough pizza restaurant in the Old Town and in a good location just off Stradun. Pizza's were large and couldn't manage all of mine. Being mid-October it was a little quiet but a nice enough experience and pizza suited us that evening.

“good with big portions”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

We enjoyed a big plate of pasta and a risotto here for lunch. The food was good, service fine.
It was a pleasant place to sit outside enjoying the October sun. Would go again.

“Fantastic lunch”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

We had a wonderful lunch today, massive Caesar salad and great chunky Greek salad, fresh hot chips too. The waiter Sasha was helpful and cheerful and the local wine and beer were a perfect accompaniment. Great value too. About £30 with tip.
