This restaurant is in one of the streets leading down to the waterfront. It offers 'typical Trieste food'. It's perhaps more orientated to the visitor than to residents but that is not to say that it isn't worth trying. Our dishes were fresh and well presented, the service was great, and the staff have obviously had good training in how... More

excellent location in the very heart of Trieste; superb service and authentic food typical for this part of Italy (mixture of Italian, Slowene and Austrian Cuisine). A bit pricey but worth it. Will come again

Chose to have lunch here as it claimed to serve typical Trieste cuisine. One main ( a pasta dish) was acceptable, no more, no less. Our other main was a local dish of skinless sausage, & potatoes, served rather unattractively on a divided dish. The sausages were dried out & hard, the potatoes quite nice. The raw onion rings accompanying... More

I recently had lunch with a business associate who brought me to La Tecia. This very small Osteria is rather crammed with tables and bigger size people may have difficulty getting around. We were warmly greeted and allowed to sit where were most comfortable. The two of us sat at a table for four people, which was adequate. La Tecia... More

Warm and comfortable, La Tecia hosts a solid wine selection purveyed by a fun and friendly staff. Had some great Merlots here, on two occasions, accompanied by plates of northern Italian ham and breads. Really a nice, relaxing little spot that is worth the visit.

Fairly standard outdoor street café/restaurant. Food was fair enough but nothing to write home about. Quite pricey for what we had in comparison with other restaurants we've eaten at. Not sure about some of the other reviews about 'authentic Italian kitchen' though... Apart from being a kitchen in Italy there was nothing extraordinary about the food to put it above... More

We found this restaurant by chance and it was a wonderful gem of a find. It has a quaint feel inside but we opted to sit outside on the pavement under shade. Staff were all unfailingly lovely, helped us translate some bits of the menu where our Italian did not stretch far enough, and the food was delicious. We all... More

We found this nice restaurant with authentic Italian kitchen accidentally walking throught Trieste center. And we where not disappointed because they have everything you want from Italian restaurant: nice atmosphere, good pizza and pasta, and great tiramisu. They have all of this and really nice waitress!

Good food, good service and very nice restaurant. We tried the traditional Bolito and it was better than I expected.

We went here at the recommendation of our hotel. I made the mistake of not checking out the reviews beforehand as the ranking of this establishment doesn't lie. We sat on one of the street tables, and it was reasonably busy and got busier. Smokers are not seperated from non smokers.We found that trying to place an order was difficult... More
