We were staying in the Hotel Park and fancied a special meal out, to celebrate my wife's birthday. I asked a couple of the hotel waiters for recommendations and they both said that we should visit Al Gastaldo.
What a wise choice this turned out to be. A gem of a restaurant, very small and cozy, with soft jazz playing in the background.
The young waiter was very polite and spoke good english. He explained the menu and brought a selection of freshly caught fish for us to inspect and order. There was a good meat selection, if we didnt want fish.
The meal was just perfect and the price a lot less than we thought it would be.
Al Gastaldo takes a bit of finding, as it is situated in a narrow courtyard, through the arch next to the Adriatic Hotel but it's well worth the search. The whole area is very interesting, being in the oldest part of Rovinj.
