Hubby and I came here based on the reviews and we were not disappointed.

Situated in the neighborhood, the dining view is of the road - however it is still quiet and not too noisy.

We ordered:
Cheese with truffles - this was ok - I'm not a fan of hard cheeses but you could definitely see and taste the truffles embedded in it. We ordered 100grams and in hindsight probably could have done with 50grams.

Mussels buzara - if you like this white wine/garlic dish then you will definitely like this. This was made so well that I started scooping up the sauce with the mussel shells and hubby started dipping the bread in the sauce. The mussels are fresh, plump, and tender. However, about 30% of the mussels were not debearded - which they really should have been.

Homemade shrimp and scampi ravioli - this came with 2 scampis on top of the pasta - a nice surprise. A nice change to what I've normally seen on menus - the filling in the ravioli tastes good but I found the ravioli pouch to be a little too thick and doughy. The tomato/cream sauce was very good and a little bit spicy.

Steak with truffles (comes with pasta with truffles) - excellent. I would order this again. Hubby and I shared this dish as our main and we were stuffed. The steak was cooked to how we requested (medium rare) but it did have to be clarified to the waiter a few times since his English was just ok. But the steak was juicy and full of good flavour. The cream truffle sauce is delicious.

Overall - food is excellent - would come here again - staff are friendly as well, and service speed was just perfect. The complimentary grappa at the end of the meal was also a nice touch.

The staff was rude! Food was awfull, tasteless, nothing special. I have seen many better places around Pula. O strongly recommend to avoid this place.
