Restaurant & Wine bar Puntulina located in the heart of the old city of Rovinj and best local and fresh products are served just a few meters away from the water.
Their culinary is a blend of Rovinj’s tradition and new trends in the way of preparing fresh, seasonal ingredients and their wine list is made out of high quality Croatin wines.
Inspired by the surroundings and culture of Rovinj, La Puntulina, which opened in 2004, showcases the spirit of the Italian influences in the breathtaking coast overlooking the Adriatic Sea.
Before 2004 La Puntulina was the house of the Pellizzer family; not wanting to sell the house, Corrado Pellizzer and his sons, Nereo and Giovanni, came up with the idea of converting the old residence into a restaurant, third of the three restaurants owned in Rovinj (see Restaurant Giannino and Snack bar RIO).
Managed by the expert hands of Giovanni and Mirjana, the concept of the restaurant is based on the innovative and fine local cuisine in a familiar and comfortable environment.
The heart and soul of Puntulina is Mirjana Pellizzer, who is assisted and supported by her husband, Giovanni. In addition to Puntulina, the Pellizzer family owns another two renowned Rovinj restaurants, Giannino and Rio snack bar. Booking a table in Puntulina in the season is a must. Prices are adequate to the gorgeous location and the quality of food.
Working hours 17 – 22 / Wednesday closed
La Puntulina opened its doors in July 2004 and since then our aim is to offer high quality products in a calm and classy ambience.
The restaurant serves local cuisine with Italian influences. Ask for a seat outside to enjoy the fantastic views! For an added burst of romance, book ahead at this family-run restaurant and request a table on one of the rocky terraces clinging to the cliffs circling the old town, mere steps from the water; it’s especially pretty at sunset. The menu emphasises the Venetian influences on Istrian cuisine, with lots of pasta and seafood dishes.
Best Restaurant In Old Town of Rovinj. If you’re dining here you most likely have had your share of Istria and Croatian food. Puntalina is more of the same with a slant on very fresh and scenic views.
Fantastic food and best view in Rovinj. I've eaten several times in Restaurant Puntulina, and every time the food and service was flawless. Great sea food, great wines and heavenly view.
