I go back to Motovun several times a year and as usual, headed straight to "Pod Voltom". I am always amazed by the fact that, however full they may be (and believe me, they can be very full because good news travels well), the service is always first class and the quality and standard of the food is the same. Excellent. I had the fillet steak with truffles which was one of the best I have ever had, superb quality and cooked to perfection, and the pancakes with chocolate and walnuts - simply divine. Beware, pancakes in this part of the world are NOT crepes, they are soft and pliable and delicious. My kids (fussy eaters) had the vegetable soup which they proclaimed the best in the world in true teen bombastic fashion, and chips and sweet cabbage salad, firm favourites throughout our stay (they serve them this since they won't eat meat or truffles and the owner likes to make sure his guests are happy). What can I say? Kids don't appreciate the finer things in life. My husband always has the parma ham and sheep cheese starter, then the steak. We had thehouse red wine, produced by the owner and so very different from the bottled stuff one can buy in the shops: smooth, non-acidic, slips down easily and leaves no headache. :-))) Other favourites are the four cheese gnocchi and the "fuzi" (fusilli) made by hand by the owner's mother and served with a variety of sauces. And in the summer, dining in the evening in their outside space by the city walls, is about as romantic as it gets - not only do you get the most superb food, you also get to watch the sunset over the valley below. a MUST for all foodies!
