This place was recommended by the owner of our hotel. The look is dated and reminiscent of a seafront cafe. No English on the menu but a helpful owner who can explain most but not all of the dishes. After a struggle with the language barrier we both ordered seafood pasta followed by rock fish. The pasta was really nice... More

It's an informal restaurant a quite zone of Trieste city centre. Since i had high expectations, i have to say i was not satisfied by their kitchen. First problem: the restaurant is not only informal, but above all the furniture is ugly and the environment is really bad. I would never come back with my girlfriend.. Service is friendly but...

I'm from Triest, but I just recently discovered this place. The location is a bit hard to reach for a foreigner, but the place is cozy and the owner very kind. He is one of the few professionals who is aware of customers' allergies: he was very attentive and proposed right solutions for a person with multiple allergies. Fish was... More

This is one of the places where you won't get out... Here you can taste the real typical seafood cooking of trieste in its various flavors, and pay the price of a cheap restaurant. Very friendly staff. Don't miss it!!

Loved the fish soup, and special pasta offered which had a mixed seafood sauce. The calamari entree was the best calamari we've had here. Very tender, stuffed, simple light oil sauce. Topped off dinner with a chocolate stuff crepe for dessert. We shared each of the dishes mentioned, had 2 glasses of wine, and 2 small botles of water. All... More

Excellent seafood -- the fish soup is a standout -- made with fresh, local catch. It's a small, family-run place with real attention to serving fantastic food. On a trip where we generally ate pretty well, Antipastoteca sticks out as a real find.

Not far from the city centre, yet secluded, on the corner of a peaceful residential area, the Antipastoteca di Mare will welcome you with all the warmth and coziness a traveller may look for. Thiry-three years of excellent cousine and familiar atmosphere has made this place the favourite spot of many a returning customer, mostly locals. You can taste top... More

We were very pleasantely surprised by this small and cosy place that makes you feel immediately very Welcome! The owner was very friendly and explained all the suggestions in a very spontaneous way. The food(especially The fish soup!) was delicious and not expensive.

This place was recommended to us by a local and did not disappoint. It's not a flashy looking place nor is it touristy. We were baffled with choices but our waiter helped us to decide on a tasting plate that way we could try several dishes. Attention to detail for every dish was amazing. The flavours and herbs and spices... More
