L'avis de Gault&Millau
A truly pleasant gastronomic post offers traditional dishes in a contemporary way. You will enjoy your dishes in a rustic dining room or on the terrace, under which they cool wines from Primorska in the cold Soča river. The atmosphere is lively, full of laughter and good mood so every guest feels wonderful while trying pristine food and tasting wines, many of which offered by the glass. If you visit the restaurant with your children who don’t share such enthusiasm about local cuisine, they will get amazing homemade pizzas. A lot of attention goes towards seasonal ingredients – during the winter, you can enjoy a special sort of red raddichio, also known as the Gorizia Rose, in springtime, they will prepare wild asparagus, wild garlic and in autumn, be sure to order dishes with chestnut, mushrooms or tuber. To begin your meal, do not miss the delicious meat products like prosciutto, lard, pancetta, salami, etc. Pasta and gnocchi are always served with seasonal sauces and the juicy, marinated and smoky beef back will disappear as soon as they put it on the table. Some other fantastic dishes are jota, čevapčiči and chops. They are also excellent at preparing seafood, raw or cooked, but the grilled octopus is definitely the softest and juiciest octopus you have ever tasted. At Ošterija Žogica, home classics are the best and they also enjoy making vegetarians and vegans happy.
