Fodor's Expert Review Trattoria Vodnjanka

$$ Pula Italian

One of the few restaurants in downtown Pula offering honest and authentic Croatian dishes, no-frills Vodnjanka is a short walk from the farmers’ market. You'll find many chefs and restaurateurs in Istria make their way here for lunch before heading to their own restaurants. Lunch is the best time to enjoy its flavorful, unpretentious home-cooked dishes—a truly local experience that brings back the forgotten flavors of old times. Depending on the season, dishes may include homemade gnocchi, meatballs, cod in tomato sauce, roasted veal, dandelion with hard-boiled eggs, grilled sardines—the dishes Istrian grannies make.
