Neighborhood: North Beach
Cuisine: Italian

This is the only Istrian restaurant on the West Coast, making it a one-of-a-kind experience. Istrian cuisine is Italian food that is heavily influenced by flavors from the Eastern Europe. It features seasonings such as cumin, paprika, pepper, cinnamon, saffron, and nutmeg. Owner/Chef Bruno Viscovi has exported recipes from his homeland and his mother's kitchen to bring us wonderful dishes to savor. He prepares three different varieties of risotto, one featuring portobello mushrooms, one saffron and smoked prosciutto, and one with seafood and mussels. To make the experience even more authentic, a regular change of wines are used to enhance his dishes. The exterior may be windowless, but inside it is warm and inviting.
