This is potentially a great place with a nice atmosphere and ambiance with a good, innovative menu and friendly staff.

The food was excellent and not too expensive given that it was prepared very well and presented equally well. We had the pasta with mussels and mozzarella and pesto to share followed by the pork with mirto for my wife and rabbit for myself.

This place would easily deserve a 5 rating if it were not for the fact that other diners could smoke where they put everyone. We are so used to not having to deal with this problem any longer that it was a spoiler to our meal.

Grazie siamo onorati della vostra gentile recensione, purtroppo quando si mangia all aperto, e nella pubblica piazza non abbiamo armi per contrastare il fumatore maleducato, abbiamo all interno una terrazza magnifica nella quale e' vietato fumare ai tavoli, ma quello e nostro territorio e le regole le dettiamo noi..;))))) saluti

This is a delightful restaurant: you sit under a tree next to the church with jazz playing in the background.
The menu is very original and it was hard to choose what to have: it all sounded interesting and tasty. We settled for sea bass with a curry sauce and linguine with squid. The service was very prompt and professional and food was very well presented and so so tasty. Puddings were also good as was the coffee.
Shane we have run out of time to revisit.

Had the pleasure of experencing a very good meal at the Pula market square at Federico's. Nice ambience at this lively outdoor restaurant. Nice setting amongst the trees. Grilled octopus was great as a starter, then seafood stew in a spicy red tomato broth. Pasta menu had many options. Wine and drink list were both really good with some great selections.

On an unexpected evening thunderstorm in August, we ended up in this restaurant. Food was great, and the waiter was great fun and working with a smile; even though he had to run in the rain between tables :) Food was good, a very unique recommend plate is the orzato with gamberi and beetroot. The atmosphere made us stay there for some cocktails afterwards. Highly recommended.
