“What a rip-off!!”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Embarrassingly low quality food and small quantity received on plate for unappropriately high prices. Shame on them. Horrible place, horrible experience. I guess they count on on-time-guests...

“Very poor service at central Pula square”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

What a shame to experience such a poor service in a restaurant at central square in Pula, just few meters from the Office of Mayor of the City of Pula. Mediocre food and a very slow service... We were charged for basket of low quality bread we had not ordered, extra cover charge (for the starter we had not been served), and even extra charge for french fries although the photo in the menu showed calamari with fries.
Being from Croatia and knowing proverbial Istrian hospitality and excellent service, I really hope the owner of the place will read some of the Tripadvisor reviews and try to improve the quality of food and service..

“Do not go to Nonno, just awful”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Quite possibly the worst dining experience we have ever had. Went with our 2 boys (10 & 15) and served a 'house dish' of rubber like polenta with watery cabbage to start us off. We didn't ask for it but they tried to charge us for it. The Greek salad that followed had cream cheese as a feta replacement....and then came the main meals. Grilled chicken skewers for my wife, the size of a child's meal with the added bonus of 2 small pieces of splintered wooden skewer sticks embedded into the chicken itself, fried calamari that really was tasteless and such a difference from the lovely calamari my son had ordered in other places in pula, 1/2 grilled chicken for me that was the best of a bad bunch, even though it was pieces of chicken drumsticks and thighs, not half a chicken. Then mussels in pasta for the youngest, it came with 7 large mussel shells, 5 of which were devoid of any mussel meat what so ever whilst the remaining 2 had a scrap of meat in each. The pasta was chewy but the tomato sauce ok. Then the bill, charged for items we did not have, charged for items included on the photos of each meal such as French fries and charged for service without any notice of this. Decided not to leave any additional tip and got a very angry reaction when we demanded our change after waiting for it for over 15 mins. When my wife tried to explain our disappointment all staff lost their ability to speak English and started ranting and shouting in Croatian. Just one tip to everyone, DO NOT GO TO NONNO EVER, there are so many nice places within a few minutes walking distance from it.

“Stay away!”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

This was the worst restaurant i've ever been to. The waiters were rude and making fun of guest who didn't give them enough tip. The guest at the table beside us warned other people from coming to this place after they got their meal. The waiter came with some bread (which was old and dry) with some tasteless starter, which they said was on the house, but they put it on the bill anyway. The prices are high, and they are higher that it looks like on the menu because if you order for example some grilled meat, that is what you get. Just the meat. So you have to order the rest of the meal in addition... The wine of the house was the worst wine I've ever tried, and i'm not fussy about wine. This was also the only place i went to in Croatia who charged you for the service (plate, knife, fork and a glass). I hope no one falls in to this trap again, but the location of the restaurant is too good...
