A short drive from Motovun (head into Livade and take a right at the only roundabout) Dolina is a perfect example of fantastic, simple local food in a simple, local place. It’s slightly off the beaten track, not touristy or flash – and all the better for it. It’s also incredibly good value. The secret is the quality of the fresh ingredients: huge plates of meaty porcini mushrooms (in Autumn) served with olive oil; heavenly fuži with truffles, either in a cream sauce or without; and squid with chips, cabbage salad, beans. Dolina gets busy with locals sat around wooden tables, repeat guests and chattering eldery Italian ladies from the nearby spa.
