The service was topnotch 👌. Good prices. I had a lovely risotto with shrimp for 90 kuna. House wine for 12 kuna. They have italien wines too. My daughter had pizza that was so good ,you could share it and it would be enough.

Visited here in September with friends while on holiday. The restaurant was full when we arrived but we were offered complimentary wine while we waited for a table which was lovely. The food was so fresh and delicious. We will definitely be returning!

A couple of minutes far from the church of St. Donatus, yet far enough from the crowd. Cute and delightful restaurant with its romantic terrace and delicious italian food, will give you memorable experience. In Salsa rossa you can fill the taste of Italy in heart of the old town. Try delicous pizzas made with mozzarella cheese, focaccia bread, San Daniele prosciutto and other Italian specialties.
