The best Seafood

This restaurant is in the heart of Trieste - 1 block inward from the sea promenade - the food is simply great, fresh and super tasty - they start you with a chef sampler which was delicious. The owners were very attentive, polite and accommodating. I love linguini con Fruta Di Mari (seafood... read more

We tried this restaurant at the suggestion of our hotel and what a mistake. Despite having a reservation, when we arrived and asked for a different table (not on top of the sewer) we were told they were all reserved - mind you no one was at the restaurant. Finally we were told the other tables were not reserved so... More

My boyfriend came here for a business dinner a while back and he wanted me to try as well, since I am always eager to eat good fish. I definitely loved the place! Starting with the outer shell, I definitely enjoyed the peculiar interior decoration, with a lot of color and variety and some glitter (really modern and fanciful, but... More

Suggested by a local friend, this was an excellent finding. It is located a couple of blocks from the Piazza Unity, in a small pedestrian road/square where many restaurants and bars are located. We sat outside and it was very pleasant to see the people strolling near you. We had two kinds of pasta with seafood which were very good,... More

This is a place you can not miss if in Trieste. The food is excellent, fresh and always unique, never boring. The atmosphere is just right no matter if you are there for business or on a romantic dinner. The owner and the staff always know how to treat your party. Anytime I am in Trieste I do my best...

We were made reservations by our hotel as their restaurant was full. Not a place we would normally have picked because the menu outside was in English and the decor was rather unusual. That said, the meal was delicious and the staff extremely friendly. we had the house wine, octopus salad and seafood risotto and can recommend them all. The... More

The owner of the restaurant, middle age female, red hair, came to take our order, in English. Half way through, without a word of apology, she just left our table and disappeared! Nothing happened for quite while. I went inside the restaurant, found a waiter and started complaining, about the woman behaving rudely. She joined us, screaming and denying she... More

We went here for dinner at the suggestion of our local tour guide. It is a great choice! The food was excellent and timely served. The pricing was good value. The ambiance is just what we were looking for--a good local fun place. We would return again without hesitation!
