Buongiorno, amici. Oggi vi parliamo di Luna Rossa, un Ristorante Italiano nel Centro di Zagrabria! For those who did not understand what was just said, we have just invited you to Luna Rossa, the best Italian restaurant in the heart of Zagreb. This place, also called ‘The Little Italy in the Croatian capital’, is located in Preradoviceva Street 12, in a charming nook hidden among small shops and Croatian souvenirs. It is a place where two Mediterranean cultures – Italian and Croatian – have met and decided to coexist and show the world that there is nothing more sweet than a combination of perfect bites and aromatic wines. We are absolutely sure that this recipe will instantly cheer you up. That is why we invite you to a delicious lunch in Zagreb in Luna Rossa – a place where you can pick a table in Zagreb, but have lunch in Bari or Calabria, the home of the owners.

This unusual Italian story started with Fabrizio Affuso and Michele Inglese, two Italians who moved to Croatia for business but decided to keep their love for Italy and share it with Croats and their guests. Their sweet obsession with Italian ingredients and recipes brought them to the idea of Italian cuisine in the ‘L’ombelico del Zagreb’ or ‘Belly of the town’. These two virtuosi opened Luna Rossa (which means Red Moon) where they offer seasonal food. Every ingredient is brought from Italy; every recipe is a recipe of their grandmothers that they kept for generations. As Italians are known as gourmands who appreciate every snack and every bite, it is not surprising that in Trattoria Luna Rossa every ingredient is healthy. Vegetable and fruit is served in accordance with nature – only what grows in that period of the year is what is served in Luna Rossa! So this spring do not miss their asparagus, zucchinis, melanzanes and many other tasty vegetables.

The menu consists of more than 20 different meals from 20 Italian regions. In every moment and every part of the year you can enjoy marvelous pesto Genovese, spaghetti Carbonara, Bolognese… or various pasta meals, shrimp risottos and more; but if your taste buds are ready to try something extraordinary, look for the chef Vincenzo Chimenti’s signature dishes. His fish delicacies are worth to experience because you won’t forget them soon. This chef has a lot of experience as well as his sous chef, another Vincenzo – this southern duo will leave you speechless. Maybe they would like you to try some fish prepared Italian way – marinated, fresh carpaccio, and if they do, let them! You won’t regret it! For each meal, they will suggest which wine suits your meal the best, and offer one of the many delicious droplets from Puglia, Toscana, and Veneto, Italian regions famous for its wines.

Apart from the food and wines, the offer of more than ten different types of authentic Italian cheeses will also knock you out. Luna Rossa serves cheeses produced only in Italy. The recipe is secret, of course, but the taste of it will take you above the clouds.

The ambiance of Luna Rossa will not disappoint you as well. The interior and exterior are designed to fit this traditional southern fairytale. Every piece of furniture has its own story – the old closets and dressers were used for gold and riches of Italian grandmothers. Nowadays, they are reminders of a beautiful tradition, which is very similar to the Dalmatian tradition in the south of Croatia. And what about music? You do not even have to ask. Luna Rossa guarantees that during your Italian lunch you will listen to Italian classics while enjoying Italian wines and cheese… Luna Rossa and their ‘ragazzi’ have thought about the smallest little details so that this restaurant can give you absolute value for money. It will take you on a trip to a sunny, warm, amazing Italy, which will full you with joy that you will last several days. Buon Viaggio!
