Location is key in the choice of a place to eat on a pleasant summer night. This restaurant is on the seafront - just a dual carriageway street separates it from the inner harbour, full of lovely sailing boats, but the view on the boats...More

Had this place recommended for its fish menu and the first night we went along they were fully booked. But it was worth waiting for as the meal was of the highest quality and well presented. Service was excellent and enthusiastic.

We had dinner at Istriano. There is no menu - only a small selection of daily dishes. The food was simple but very fresh and tasty. The service was a bit rushed. The prices were OK.
