La Parenzana

About us

You are warmly invited to the „Casa Romantica Parenzana“. Situated in a rural area of Istria just 10 km from the sea, it is a peaceful oasis for relaxation and an ideal starting point for daily exploration of this beautiful area. In our „konoba“ restaurant we offer traditional regional delicacies such as „Čripnja“ (roast meat or fish and potatoes cooked in a cast iron pot on an open hearth fire). During the season truffle are hunted locally, don't miss your chance of tasting this well known aphrodisiac from our special menu. Our cuisine culture is based on providing natural, healthy food, prepared and served in the traditional yet sophisticated way.


Istrian changeful and exciting history also influenced its gastronomy. Every nation which has been here left a part of its culture and customs–this is why Istrian cuisine today is a blend of different historical and cultural influences, the strongest among them are Venetian, Austro-Hungarian and, of course, Croatian. Prevailing life style is Mediterranean.

The Parenzana team follows this tradition: the food is cooked on an open heart fire: veal, lamb, goat meat with potatoes and vegetables, ombolo (loin), Istrian sausages, beefsteaks, etc. with the special attention to the seasonal delicacies such as truffles, asparagus and wild mushrooms.

We are baking our own bread and making our own pasta (fuži, njoki, pljukanci) which are served with truffles, mushrooms, pršut (homemade dried ham) panceta (Istrian bacon), pine nuts, venison, chicken and beef goulash. All these meals are off course accompanied by the best istrian wines, from the Croatian and from the Slowenian part of Istria.
