My colleague recommended Le Barretine and it proved to be the ebst meal I have had in Triest yet. The fish was excellent and the local wine was a good choice. We couldn't decide between desserts so we took two: the chocolate cake - freshly baked and dripping inside and the semifredo. It was hard to pick a winner. They... More

My husband said it well: this was a memorable meal. Unpretentious and unfussy, carefully, even loviingly prepared and beautifully presented food made from fresh ingredients of the highest quality. We were welcomed with a small glass of prosecco and a basket of nice soft doughy breads and a crustier kind as well. I had an antipasto of sea bream, peaches,... More

Don't judge the food by the extremely plain exterior or the frumpy interior decoration. The seafood is extremely fresh and very well prepared. We especially liked our appetizers: Thin slices of raw fish enhanced by just a bit of shaved white asparagus and delicious regional olive oil and a deconstructed caesar salad with beautiful chunks of barely cooked tuna. And... More

My wife and I shared five courses and all were perfectly prepared. We especially enjoyed a tuna in ginger sauce and the sea bass. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

What a beautiful little spot! I simply told my waiter to serve me what he thought was the best local specialities along with local wines. Talk about being in good hands! The girl who picked my wines was so passionate about the area and explained nuances of what i was presented. Matched? You bet! Imagine a spagetti with fresh anchovies... More

I've have been frequenting Le Barettine for several years, through different owners and chef's that have come and gone. The current owners and chef happen to be the best ever. Le Barettine is owned and operated by a soon to be wed couple who bust their humps (work very hard) to provide and enjoyable dining experience. The real talent remains... More

I was there with three friends. We had a raw fish mixed appetizer, that was really good. The main dish for me was baked angler fish, good, not exceptional. Desserts were kind of mediocre. Two bottles of wine - looking for a reasonably priced one - and the check went to 240 euros. The worst of it was the waiting:... More

We went to Le Barettine after having read about the place on Tripadvisor, and we were very happy we did. We jumped in quite late without having made a reservation. We were told we had to wait for a couple of minutes, and they offered us immediately a nice glass of prosecco. Afterwards we tried the raw fish antipasto, which... More

This was one of the best culinary experience I have encountered so far in Italy. This cosy little restaurant is tucked away in one of the back streets of Trieste. It took some effort to get here but was absolutely worth every step while giving a deaf ear to my hunger pangs. When we got there, we were warmly greeted... More

Hard to find anything comparable to this! It all started with a nice 'surprise starter from the kitchen', a must is the mixed raw fish antipasto (bye bye to any sashimi constellation! this is it!): the taste paradise includes calamari with lemon mousse, swordfish with strawberry, prawn with carrots, all diced into small pieces and arranged nicely on the plate....
