Tratoria Leonardo: Tratoria Leonardo
This is one of two low price restaurants in Zagreb with outdoor seating in the warm season. Since we didn't find an outdoor table in next door Nokturno restaurant, we ended up here in the Leonardo for our small VT meet in September 2012.
They serve a wide range of dishes like pizza, pasta, meat, fish etc.
I opted for a chicken filet with gorgonzola sauce and green noodles. When the dish came it wasn't very hot anymore as it obviously had to wait for the pizzas the others ordered which I heard were yummy. The chicken filet with the gorgonzola sauce cost 39 Kuna and the side dish of green noodles 10 Kuna. The prirodna limunada wasn't up to standard but had the standard price of 15 Kuna. The black tea was actually a Earl Grey one and cost 10 Kuna.
All in all a pleasant place for a meal and I would return anytime.
Nokturno offers a wide range of Italian dishes from pizza to pasta. It seems to be popular among both locals and tourists. Even VT members are said to be seen here.
The food is delicious and surprisingly cheap for the central location of the place. Nokturno has a nice little outdoor terrace facing the pedestrianised cobbled alleyway Skalinska.

Italian: 2 - Dvojka
Its a great Italian reatsurant for pizzas and pasta. Situated in the old part of the city, in a small rustical house, with two rooms (smoking and non-smoking), great ambient and one of the best pizzas in city, if now the best. The make it in the old brick owens like it is supposed to be made.
Favorite Dish: Pizza Dvojka
Nokturno: cheap and cosy
the best thing here is food. dishes are large and delicious. i tried only italian food here, but you can also order some fish and meat. the athmosphere is great, prices are very low and its situated in centre near Jelacic square. When the weather is fine you can sit outside on the terrace.
Favorite Dish: 1. Spaghetti alla carbonara
2. All kinds of pizzas
3. Tagliatelle verde con prosciuto
Italian restaurant Oliva, Zagreb: Stylish interior and delicious food
It seams that restaurant is new, but cooks are not, they do know their job well. The food was very delicious. Restaurant is near Student Hostel Stjepan Radic and is available to many young tourists who are staying in a hostel at summer.
Favorite Dish: I've become addicted to pizza oliva. Great pizza dough, the perfect ingredients, perfect meal after which you can drink a glass of excellent Croatian red wine . All prices are on their website.

Italian: Gallo restaurant
Food is art at this beautiful, unpretentious restaurant behind the facade of an unremarkable building a few blocks from the city center. Homemade pasta in countless shapes and a rainbow of colors dries behind glass near the restaurant entrance. The kitchen, too, is visible behind glass, so diners can watch the chef work his magic. Even the extensive wine cellar is artfully displayed in a corner of the house. The menu is mostly fish with several interesting recipes such as tuna with polenta and red-wine sauce, or beef soup with ravioli. There is a stylish white stone terrace, a cozy casual dining room, and more formal space where crystal and silver set the tone. The waitstaff is congenial and knowledgeable about both the food preparations and complementary wines.
Boban: GREAT PASTA
Boban is a basement restaurant near the main square. We've been here twice on our winter visit to Zagreb because we really enjoyed the food here. In summer we immediately went back and forced the local VTers to have our VT dinner here!
They serve Italian food here, mainly meat and pasta. If you are looking for pizza this is not your place, there's no pizza on the menu. The pasta, however, is gorgeous - very big portions, very fancy combinations and very delicious. Prices are very reasonable and the English speaking staff is friendly. I'm already looking forward to coming back here on my next visit to Zagreb.
Upstairs from the restaurant there's a nice bar which is called Boban, too.
Favorite Dish: My favourite dish in 2005 and 2007 was Penne Mamma Rosa (yes, I am boring ;). Thomas enjoyed his Gnocchi Mari e Monti so much, he ordered the same dish three times already. The Crostino I had for starters was gorgeous as well.
Restaurant Boban: Restaurant Boban
You go downstairs to enter the actual restaurant. Upstairs there is a bar with the same name. Toilets are halfway down the stairs. The restaurant has a wide selection of dishes. I ate "spaghetti carbonara".
This good and inexpensive restaurant is situated in a small and short street which leads from the Cathedral, over market place of Dolac, into the Tkalciceva ulica.
Favorite Dish: Here you can get chep and good food like: spagetti, lasagne, pizza and seafood. It is very popular among VTers, and many of them have eat here during visiting Zagreb.

Nokturno: Good pizza, good... ;)
Nokturno has got to be the best pizza place in the Zagreb center! Although I prefer small, local & familiar pizza places, I often take friends who are visiting there. It's located between the Dolac market at Opatovina & Tkalčićeva street. You can get there from ban Jelačić square, going towards the north, passing the phone booths & turning left before the stairs. Nokturno is situated in the first street on the right [almost right opposite the famous Krvavi most - Blood bridge] & it offers a great & charming view of the Cathedral towers. The street is located in the pedestrian zone & is pretty steep, but the location is great! You can sit outside during the summer, but it's almost always crowded.
The atmosphere is cozy, the staff nice & the prices reasonable. I suggest you go there & enjoy a pizza the Croatian way! ;)

Maslina: Great Pizza
Nykaenen & danijelita took me to this place on a Saturday afternoon. A great choice if you are hungry and feel like pizza or pasta. Actually, I would say that it was one of the best Pizzas I ever had.
Favorite Dish: Pizza
Caffe "Zirafa": Off the beaten path, but very good!
While this seems to be an ordinary caffe when you look at it from the outside, inside, they have a small kitchen and serve pretty affordable italian and mexican food, which is delicious! The chef is really good and you'll love the african atmosphere! Also, quite a lot of celebrities visit this place, probably just because it's not so well known and here, they can get their moment of privacy.
Favorite Dish: Definately chimichanga Zirafa :) Really good! Second choice would be italian pasta with olive oil and garlic... Already forgot their names in the menu, so you'll have to improvise if you decide to visit.
Italian: Don't miss the fresh pizza?
Italian as in pizza and pasta. I would say a bit greek as well since they have greek sallads. (Not to reccommend though!)
A good start for a night on Tkalca, have a pizza and then continue on!
Favorite Dish: Haha, I don't know. Pizza?
Nocturno: A VT CLASSIC
I had heard the name of this restaurant many times before basically because almost every VTer has been here before I think. And they all came for a reason. The food here was lovely and so were the incredibly low prices.
Favorite Dish: I had chicken risotto which was way too much and very tasty.
