The only reason I am giving 2 stars are pizzas, big and tasty and well-looking and colorful interior. Unfortunatelly, that's about it. Forget about anything but pizzas. I didn't notice any efforts put to pasta, it was served cold which i believe is a capital sin. Salads = diseaster.No bread served as a starter, according to waiters we would need to wait even loger than for the main course. And there comes a service. I believe it was the worst service i got during my stay in Croatia. Waiting for about an hour for our meal wasn't even the worst thing considering it was lunch time. Nor complete lack of interest or simple kindness/friendliness. The worst thing, as we say 'a nail to the coffin' was that after we didn't give a tip, we were ripped on about 1/3 of final prize by a waiter claiming we made a mistake. And yes, we made a mistake - we didn't pay with cart but cash, don't copy that.
I would recommend this place, for drunk /drugged singles or desperate tourists about to starve to death

A bit hard to find, especially if driving and not walking, but it is worth the search. First have dropped there for lunch. Ordered a chicken salad and a salami pizza. Pizza came first and the salad took some time. This was the best salami pizza we have had in a long time, good size, perfect amount of toppings, and very tasty salami. The salad on the other side was not impressive at all (even though it cost either more or same as the pizza). It was a huge portion of salad leafs, most of which were bitter, and not much chicken--so that was a disappointment. The waiter was very nice and helpful, spoke good English too.
We ended up coming back on our way back through Rijeka for an early lunch, or late breakfast we can say. This time ordered two pizzas, and both were very good. Couldn't finish either of them though and so asked to get it to go (which wasn't a problem as the waiter again was very nice, just took our plates and put the left over pizzas in a box).
Very recommended if you like good pizza, try the "deviola", it is seriously delicious.

After eating at Nono's in Porec, nothing will ever be the same
The pizza is good, but the caprese salad was not with real buffala mozzarella

This was my first goal, which I did with tripadvisor and I must say that I do not regret it. Good pizza in center of city Rijeka, where the main pedestrian zone. The second part of the street Korzo, the huge parking, where you can park a car. Summer is fine, because the street is slightly withdrawn and is in the shade, but it is true that it is so hard to find.

I had a very mixed experience at this restaurant. The food which we ate was fantastic, the atmosphere where we were sitting was great but the service was just appalling. The girl who served us first was very unfriendly and made us feel like we were a real hassle to her. Even though there was very few people eating that night and enough waiting staff on the floor it was hard to get attention from anyone - we weren't the only one. We had ordered some bread to go with the meal and it didn't come with our mains and so we had to try and ask for that a couple times.about 15 minutes later it arrived at the table yet it was just completely stale and so we sent it back, the staff didn't seem to care about the mistake in the order. Finally when we managed to get the bill they had tried to charge us for this bread which had been sent back and we received no apology for this. On the whole i think we were quite unlucky about who served us and perhaps it was because we didn't speak croatian that we didn't get good service. But, the food was just amazing and i would still recommend this restaurant with just a warning about service.
