This is a truly authentic little restaurant away from the seafront touristic chaos. The food was simple and tasty and a very nice tiramisu for desert. The atmosphere is of a family place.

Balbi was alright but my mussels at Driocastel were much better. We liked the table outside, the wait staff was great, the food quality was just a little below other dinners in Rovinj.
