Small but great

Great place to visit. Good food and excellent service. The restaurant is very small. it is difficult to book, but it is worth any try.

Every time i visit Alla Sorgente i can't resist to order almost everything available :-) very simple but excellent cooking, with so much precision and lot of finesse, it is really difficult to recommend anything from the ever-changing menu... If one is looking for authentic low-profile getaway from tourist traps, this the place to go! Very nice and pollite waiter... More

We went there on the recommendation of other travellers and we're glad we took the time to find it. Language was a problem but with smiles and hand signs that was easily overcome. We watched as our meal was prepared and enjoyed our whole evening. Would definitely re-visit if we ever back in Trieste. The lady chef was a Gm!

the first time we tried to have a dinner here,it was full,and we were too hungry to wait. but we came here the day after,and we really had a great dinner. as they have a small kitchen (it's all open,so you can see them preparing the food) they don't have a menu card, the waiter tells you the 8-10 types...

I recently had lunch at Alla Sorgente while in Trieste on business. This is a very small trattoria, though very popular with locals. I tried to eat here before, but the 4-5 tables indoors are always full and hard to get. As this was summertime, tables were also situated out in the closed off street, under large umbrellas. It was... More

Beautiful fresh food and wonderful wine - served by lovely, friendly people. You'd have to go a very long way to beat the winning combination put together by Mirsada and her team.

Authentic Italian Tratoria hidden in Via della Sorgente. Very delicate cuisine full of flavors. Hard to describe this amazing culinary experience. The service was very friendly. And the atmosphere was warm. They also have a little nice terrace. 1 mixed Antipasto + 2 very vast seafood main courses + 2 green side salads + bottle of white wine = 65... More

Just off a large avenue, this wonderful place with only a few tables is quiet and homey, with the food cooked behind the counter. Best to make a reservation. If you want fresh seafood and excellent pasta with local wine, this is a great place. It will help to know some Italian, but they will do their best to help... More

This little osteria with only 4 tables is absolutely the best in Trieste. I have been visiting the place everytime I was going to Trieste since 2008. If you are for good food, warm atmosphere and sincere keepers, this is the place. Good for lunch and dinner. Best to have a researvation in a day or two in advance. The... More
