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.

My Fiance and I dined here on a Saturday evening around 6:00 PM (early by European standards!) We were greeted by a friendly staff who spoke English well, and sat straight away. We were served by three different servers throughout the course of our meal,...More

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

Great dinner during our one-night stay in Rovinj. Nice location of the restaurant in middle of the old town, with very friendly staff and a large selection of dishes. Seafood pasta for two people was excellent
