Description: Tucked away in the quiet and peaceful old medieval alleyway just 100 meters away from Stradun, Mea Culpa is a great place for a good pizza and cold refreshment after climbing the City Walls. At Mea Culpa Pizzeria and Trattoria we promise to deliver a unique culinary experience where every dish is prepared fresh to order using only the freshest ingredients. Whether it's a romantic dinner for two in our cosy dining room, a casual lunch, or a special evening out, Mea Culpa offers you one of the best dining experiences Dubrovnik has to offer. Our talented pizza chefs at Pizzeria Mea Culpa are taught the traditional Roman methods of creating the perfect pizza. We make our pizzas with only the freshest & finest local ingredients, and bake them in our specialty high tech pizza oven. Our menu includes a large variety that suits any type of appetite, from the most traditional and unique pizza flavours, a wide array of Italian dishes, lasagnes and a selection of pasta dishes that you'd find in top of the line Italian restaurants. Besides authentic Mea Culpa Style Pizza, we feature different "DAILY SPECIALS" such as Chicken with gorgonzola or spinach, Pollo con gamberetti, Veal "Saltimbocca" and our signature dish Tagliatta "Mea Culpa." Our restaurant provides guests with casual al fresco and indoor dining. Pizzeria may receive up to twenty persons in the inside and around sixty guests on the outside terrace. With tables outside on a summer's eve, Mea Culpa's combination of great food, excellent service, and comfortable atmosphere makes this restaurant a must do-dining choice. Grab a bottle of wine and bring your friends down at Mea Culpa to try the best pizza in Dubrovnik. Come and taste the quality! Bonus: don't forget to take your Dubrovnik card with you and you'll get 10% discount.

“Huge pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Went here three times when we were in Dubrovnik. The first day the crust on the pizza was a bit dry, but the next two times the crust was in great condition. The pizza is huge. Perfect size if you are a hungry man. You won't leave with an empty stomach. The bathrooms are awful.

“Good value food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

Busy restaurant that does good pasta and pizza. Very busy because of good reviews on trip advisor but lots of tables and well staffed. Bruschetta was outstanding.Good value for money in a city that can be expensive for not very much.

“Good Quality food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Nice restaurent, serving mainly pizzas, but with a selection of other food. It is quite large as there is Mea Culpa 1, 2, 3. We sat facing the fan to cool us, but as soon as we finished the meal, they moved it to another table, I felt they were rushing us out to get more bums on seats.

The Quality and taste is good, compared to the others within the city wall.

The toilet were dirty and full of flies, not a good sign, as you can judge how clean the kitchens are by the toilets.

Would I go back probably not.

“Ask for Dubrovnick card discount upfront”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

Food is good, but please ask for the Dubrovnik card discount upfront.
We have asked for the Dubrovnick card discount upon paying the bill. The waiter informed us that we should have asked it before and that now the discount couldn't be applied.
The food is good.

“Lovely!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

Stopped here for lunch in the old town. Very nice, huge pizzas and pasta dishes. Staff were very friendly and efficient, and it's not too pricey either. Would really recommend stopping here if you're in the old town, easy to find and lots of space, tables line the street.
