Excellent

The food was great and the service was very attentive (good English). I can only recommend the place if you're into seafood. I'm very glad I stumbled into this place.

I visited this restaurant multiple times. I Like it and would suggest without doubts. I tried different things from menu and all was very good. Do not miss to try millefoglio.

Just about 200 meters from Piazza Unita' D'Italia, this restaurant gives you a chance to taste very high quality cuisine, be surrounded by the social life of Trieste, and, in spring and summer, sit outside and keep an eye on people and tourists walking by. Mainly fish food, but also great pasta, appetizers and meat. Average prices. Much better to... More

We had a business dinner here on a Tuesday night for 15 people and was great. One of my colleagues, a local, had preordered everything and it was all a treat. We had a four course meal, various seafood dishes, including a great risotto, and of course fabulous Italian wine. It is in a great location just one block back... More

This is my tenth time in Trieste on business and few days ago I went to this restaurant with my colleagues. Maybe if you like raw food then this is your place! I have been to many italian restaurants in Italy and this "so claimed italian restaurant" is nothing from being italian. Steak was low quality and after all we... 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

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 linguini) it was not on the menu... 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...
