As we had our dinner last night at "Frittolini" we wanted to try the Pasta/Risotto Scampi at the restaurant on the same lovely square. Maybe it's lost in translation on the menu but in Holland scampi are big shrimp. On our (delicious!) pasta and risotto was a angry crawfish looking at us with his beady eyes ;) and in the dish there was crawfishflesh. So we had to buckle down and crack the poor crawfish (which was easier for me than for my poor boyfriend who doesn't like his food looking at him) The food was delicious, we paired it with some fresh tomato-salad and a half litre wine and a big beer for 35 euros (including tip) and we got a Grappa from the house! Yum! Only thing: they give you a basket of bread before you get your food but no olive oil or salt so it's just dry bread... all in all a lovely meal at a cute square with lots to see!

I must admit everything was great on our visit. Amazing seafood platter which was best I've ever had. The house wine was at just ok, but with the food it was super good match. Service was friendly and fast. Totally recommended!

The food was good, price reasonable, and we loved the staff. Attentive and genuinely nice. The place was nice enough, but we did come after busy lunch time so the toilets were a disaster... still, food and staff made up for it.

It was our first night in Piran and due to the proximity to our rental apartment, we came into this restaurant. It was very busy but the staff was attentive and friendly. Our waiter was very helpful to accommodate our request and modify the dishes based on our needs. The food was above average and good value for money.

Poor quality food sums it up in totality . The worst wine I had since I was a kid ... The tuna carpaccio tasted like it came out of a can ... The olive oil is fake olive oil , probably canola oil , and I ordered a Coca Cola ... They substituted the Slovenian version . They insisted no , but when pressed to produce the Coke Bottle , can or whatever ... Oh , sorry ! We threw it in the trash . Is this a big deal at the end of the day ? Yes !!! Substituting inferior products and selling them as premium products is "Hoodwinking" ! They think that they can peddle crap to Americans or any foreigner and they won't know the difference . What they don't know is ... Yes, we do know , and Bcuz we do . We will not Ever come back
