WORLD CENTER OF ISTARIAN WHITE TRUFFLE
Restaurant Zigante is the first Croatian restaurant specializing in the preparation of Istrian truffle dishes, and throughout the year offers a carefully combined menu just based on fresh truffles.
The Zigante Restaurant is located in the heart of Istria, in the village of Livade, not far from the famous Motovun forest - between Motovun and Oprtalj. In 1999, near Livada, more precisely in the famous Motovun forest, Mr. Giancarlo Zigante, accompanied by his Diane, found the largest white truffle, a specimen of the famous variety Tuber magnatum Pico, weighing 1.31 kg, which was the largest in the world in Guinness the record book! This event Livade is widely celebrated as the world center of this highly valued underground mushroom.
The restaurant specializes in Istrian truffles but can also boast an exceptionally rich enoteca that counts many domestic and foreign wines. The restaurant staff, our chefs and sommeliers, bear many international awards for their work. Apart from the unambiguously unique menu in the world, we also offer the possibility of organizing business lunches, dinners, tastings and other events, and accommodation in luxuriously appointed rooms.
