Description: For almost 45 years now, the Al Bagatto Restaurant has been providing this wonderful city a place to try the best fresh fish around. This has sometimes meant offering an alternative all-meat menu or even closing the restaurant when the quality fish that you know us for, and which distinguishes us, was not available.

My wife and I love fish and this is the right place for it. We not only much enjoy traditional Italian food but also the new creative Italian cuisine like the ones here. We contacted the restaurant to reserve a table but they first told us that it had been totally booked out but then a few seconds later they... More

I do my research and am always a bit worried when I am going to a new restaurant, especially if I have not had any feedback from friends. But this time it was a wonderful experience; the food was sooo good and the staff, the owner and a very helpful young woman, gave us the ins of what to have... More

This is a lovely, intimate, resturant with very attentive service and food. Far from your stock standard, this menu offers excellent local cuisine delicately prepared and a wine list to die for!

Probably one of the best meals I've ever eaten. Small intimate restaurant, friendly helpful staff, delicious, innovative food and good wine. Not cheap (our bill came to around €150 for two of the 'local taste' menus, plus wine), but perfect for a special occasion. The strawberry gazpacho was to die for as was the desert!

A small restaurant,surrounded by wine,grappa and cognac. The maitre is a host as it should be. We have appreciated the detail for honest ingredients,the choice in superb wines,not to forget the bread.Together with 20 soulsisters,the restaurant produces its own bread with natural ingredients. Yes, probably this was one of my best experiences in Italy. Thank you, Al Bagatto.

This one of the best restaurants we have been. The only problem is that restaurant is so small and you need a reservation. Food was very good and they have decent wine list not overrated. We will definitely go there again.

Wonderful menu, food, service, ambiance. Unique cuisine. A real treat. We have eaten at many restaurants in Trieste and this one stands out.

Just above average food with very high prices. Maybe this restaurant has been living on its reputation as we could not find anything exceptional about it. Bland flavours, small portions, but helpful staff.

We ordered from the a la carte menu (vs. 'set') and we were very happy with everything. Also, they accomodated request for a smaller 'pasta' portion as a 2nd....recommend seafood and 'local' dishes which seemed to be much better than more 'general' dishes (i.e. simple pasta)....local wine recommendations were excellent. Recommend this place for sure when in Trieste.
