We stumbled onto Roko by chance and thought it looked from the street like it would have authentic Croatian/Italian pasta. It was also the busiest restaurant on the block. The interior has a nice cosy feel to it, it would not be out of place in an Italian seaside village.
We were impressed by the service we received form our waiter, and he seemed equally at enthusiastic in English, Italian or Croatian. But what really stood out at Roko is the fresh and flavoursome pasta and risotto we had. The famous Istrian truffles are the magic ingredient of the risotto, while the salmon pasts had a delicious white sauce. The meals are very sizeable - we were eyeing some tiramisus we saw the table next to us enjoying, however the mains left no room for dessert.
Roko is a must for lunch or dinner in Opatija.
