Teo Fernetich’s family embarked on a big adventure in 2004. Following the strict, local criteria for renovation, they transformed an old family estate into an exclusive holiday resort. Now, the hotel and restaurant are wonderfully run by Teo’s father Tullio, his mother Rita, and his sister Luana who runs their shop in the village.
San Rocco’s cuisine
Drawing on traditional recipes, San Rocco serves creative Mediterranean cuisine with a modern twist. The chef works with seasonal and locally-grown products that are typical for Istria, such as truffles, mushrooms, freshly caught Adriatic fish, ham, game, and herbs. The restaurant offers 6- or 7-course tasting menus, which vary according to the season. One of their most popular dishes is the potato cream with black truffles, on a bed of blackfish. As well as the homemade tortellini with Istrian oxen meat. Expect tasty traditional Croatian dishes, mostly prepared in an Istrian-style wood-fired oven. Next to their Istrian specialties and refined selection of local wines, San Rocco also offers a vast array of Istrian olive oils. Each seasonal menu comes with a recommendation on which olive oil to use with the dish of your choice. Good to know: the restaurant organizes wine tastings as well as olive oil tastings.
Hotel restaurant San Rocco is perched on a hill, just a few minutes away from the coast of the Adriatic sea. Located in Brtonigla-Verteneglio, you’re also just a few hours away from Venice, Vienna, Munich, Milan, Florence, and other major European cities.
