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!

I have been suggested by local hotel clark to go here. This is my 5th trip to Trieste and I am impressed with this. Good quality food and service. Local beer Chiara was also suggested too!

Stylish, modern surroundings played well against their updated Italian-based menu. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the wine list and helped us choose a Ribolla Gialla white wine to complement our fish dishes. Our starter of Bigoli (pasta) with a sauce of anchovies, capers and tomato was heavenly. My husband enjoyed amberjack Mediterranean style and I had grilled fish & vegetables... More

No airs or graces, boisterous and kid-friendly, kind of garish decor and uncomfortable seating, but great fresh seafood, perfectly prepared and imaginatively presented. Would go again for sure .

Really liked this restaurant, very friendly and attentive staff and excellent, good value food. Strong points were fresh fish, generous portions and nicely cooked. Very reasonable bill and offered free digestifs and complimentary biscuits at the end of the meal. Conveniently located and very good atmosphere. Would highly recommend.

We had dinner here last week. We did not book in advance but probably should have. We got there at opening and it was empty but filled up quick. In future - I would make a reservation especially during season. The staff was very friendly. Our meals were very good. I had the grilled vegetables and then the ravioli. The... More

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
