Restaurant Zigante, located in the small picturesque village of Livade, is a fine-dining destination which offers specialties and delicacies inspired by the traditional Istrian cuisine and prepared under the strict guidance of our renowned chef Damir Modrušan, a true artist when it comes to truffle specialties. We combine only fresh seasonal ingredients such as wild asparagus and truffles found in the nearby Motovun Forest together with homemade products like olive oil, prosciutto and cheese, all in order to provide our guests with a unique dining experience.
For those who prefer the more adventurous approach, we have prepared special truffle hunts with a guide in the nearby forest. Apart from search for valuable underground mushrooms, you will also get the perfect chance to enjoy walk around the forest with nothing but fresh air, beautiful landscape and entertaining diversity of animal and plant life right in front of you.
Explore amazing nature of this region, taste some of the finest Istrian wines and autochthonous products, treat your palate with creative dishes from our restaurant menu and, in the end, visit Zigante truffle store where you can buy fresh truffles to remind you of a unique experience you had this summer in Livade.
