I was here with a large group attending a conference so we were treated to a variety of different samples, but every single one of them was stunning, extremely well taken care of and incredibly good. One of my best dinners ever

We came to this restaurant with a set reservation by our hotel. Empty place except for 3 tables but got full soon, all appeared to be locals except for us. We were diplomatically rushed to order everything. We agreed that my entree was coming with mix vegetables, came with spinach, not big deal, kept it. My husband's selection was not... More

Such was the kerfuffle about finding us a table so early in the evening that we wondered if there might be something of the Emperor’s new clothes about this restaurant. After a warm, friendly welcome, we chose to start with ravioli: something light, we thought, for the first dish. It was not light. Even ravioli from a packet isn't this... More

What a lovely restaurant! Excellent food, friendly efficient service, modern and quirky decor ( even a handbag stand at every table!). The wine list was mainly local and of good value. I think the only criticism is of the external look which probably loses it a few customers, it really is a find and worth a visit. The menu is... More

Interesting menu of standard and unusual dishes. Decent wine list. Good service. What more could one want?

A quite antique and not at all exiting sign outside does not prelude at all of the very clean, modern design you will find inside. Very inventive cooking, excellent quality fare and good friendly service made this meal a feast for us.

Our party of three were fortunate to be seated without a reservation, although we were placed in the back of the restaurant closest to the restrooms. We ordered an assortment of seafood including the seafood soup and octopus salad. Service was uneven, they were very busy and seemed to forget about us. The overly salted soup arrived after two others... More

A trattoria with a sense of fun - the chairs all have different backs and varied pretty glassware on the tables! Good if not exceptional food and attentive staff. It gets very busy so go early or book. A good recommendation from the Starhotel Savoia Palace.

We chose to eat in this place by chance as we were passing by. Pros: fish was excellence, first class Cons: service wasn't very good and it felt rushed even though the place was half empty at the time. Not offered wine list and the so had local wine as suggested by waitor which was rough stuff Would we go... More

The dinner was one of the highlights of my first visit to wonderful Trieste. I was with my sister and we basically left ourselves in the very good hands of the staff. The food was so good. Regarding the wine- again we let the staff guide us and their selections were great. We ate outside which was very nice. It... More
