Cantina Cucina Fina

Marker ikona

Only a few months after its opening, the small, but very peculiar Cantina Cucina Fina quickly became the first association for Italian cuisine in Zagreb, thanks to its respect for gastronomic tradition, its seasonal offer, fresh ingredients, home-made pasta, sauces and bread.

The leading trattoria in Zagreb stands out with its carefully thought out menu which is based on authentic Italian culinary heritage, brought together by their chef from Venice – Roger Nordio, in collaboration with Croatian colleagues. Another specialty of this spot is its open kitchen, where meals are prepared in front of guests, and those who arrive for breakfast get the chance to see how the dough is rolled. Of course, they offer a take-out menu, but everyone will agree that it’s much better to enjoy this type of cuisine at the Cantina, whose warm interior was designed by the architecture bureau 2A – also located in the neighbourhood. Buon appetito!



Program bar

The bar Program is located on the site of a former charming Divas bistro. Saša Žerajić, the ever-present and loved face of the bistro, who worked there since the opening, decided to create his own concept in the same place. 


PULS*AR was established in December 2013, as a new initiative by principal architects with a collective wealth of experience built through their individual careers, each stretching back almost twenty years. Together, they encompass a wide range of varied concepts, designs, and built developments, winning them international recognition and a host of prestigious awards.

Kreativni centar Ledana

Unutrašnjost bloka u Bauerovoj 19 jedan je od primjera dugogodišnjeg nastojanja za očuvanjem bivšeg industrijskog kompleksa tvornice leda kao prostora od javnog značaja, a protiv pokušaja njegove privatizacije.
