Very nice looking restaurant in the old city. The service was great, really nice staff. The food was amazing and the prices were surprisingly not high.

An elegant but cozy place inside. Had grilled sea bass, scampi risotto and beef among four of us, everything was really good. Superb friendly service.

We ate twice at this lovely restaurant. Once outside and then inside in a lovely vaulted room. Away from the throngs of tourists, the service and food was great.

Simply the best restaurant in Rovinj for the 5th in a row, at least. Excellent and the best value you can get. Service is absolutely perfect and very kind and smiling. Way better than the direct competitors who often disappoint. Never disappointed in Santa Croce!...More

Wonderful service and food at this restaurant. No sea views but lovely terrace on the street and beautiful indoor dining room ideal for out of season. Dessert platter to die for!

While this restaurant does not enjoy sea views, it is worth visiting with outstanding food and excellent service. And the prices are less than some of the other top restaurants in the area, which have sea views, making this a must for dining.

We enjoyed our dinner at Santa Croce. It is billed as an Istrian/Italian restaurant- but keep your expectations modest if you're looking for Italian food.
