Very nice staff, good food, nice old taverna type place. We ate pizzas and soups. My pretty picky friend ate fish soup and she loved it. I ate Istrian minestrone with pizza bread and it was also great.

We visited Rovinj and found LaVela very near the start of downtown. We were greeted by Elvis who was so friendly and made us feel very welcome. The food was very reasonable priced and very yummy. We enjoyed our meal and would definantly recommend LaVela.

Genuinely authentic Croatia Trattoria. A bit higher up the hill to avoid tourists but the locals poured in between 14-15.00 and were known by management and ‘sorted’. I arrived just before them and was well looked after e.g. 3 pints of cold beer and a...More
