Time Out says
Editor's note: Piassa Granda is closed with no immediate plans to reopen.
Set in Veli trg, the main square when Rovinj was an island, Helena Trošt’s Piassa Grande is a wine bar, shop and café with the interior of a serious wine haunt. Under wooden beams with ceiling fans, her shelves are filled with 150 labels, 130 of them Istrian. All can be sampled on site, most by the glass, or taken home. Clai, Poletti and other top varieties can be found; a fifth of them are offered by the bottle. A small menu offers local cheeses, bruschetta and crostini, and truffle biscuits, truffle rakija and top-end olive oil are also sold, plus rarer beer brews such as Chimay Blue and Rochefort 8.
