Chef's approach impressed me so much.Selection of wine was... More

The food was very good but expensive. Not recommended for families, specially not with many kids, perfect for a business dinner though.

Delicious italian restaurant in Trieste, on a small pedestrian street, just 100 yards from seafront. Good local & regional fare, with a large choice of fish and plenty of truffle dishes, thanks to proximity to Istria. Rather on the sophisticated end, with the chef focusing in quality rather than quantity. Beautiful wine list, with all of great stuff from Colio... More

Very good restaurant with excellent seafood. The seven (or was it even nine?) course fishmenu accompanied with excellent regional wines, is its price more then worth! You must try it! Correct service, very nice food with sometimes special ingredients make the evening a real, attractive adventure. Very classic interior.

The place was quite hard to find with the Google maps entry but well worth the search. Tripadvisor has got the location almost accurate. Actually it shows the location of the associated bar where you can have an "aperitvo" but hold back on the assorted snacks, you will need the hunger later. The restaurant fills up after 9pm, I recommend... More
