Situated down a back street, we were not able to find it immediately. Brightly lit and furnished in a tasteless, esoteric style, they are badly in need of some help with their interior design. The whole family are involved in the running of the restaurant. Grandad was sat at his desk organising the accounts and the takings, Grandma was outback... More

A good choice in Trieste if you are looking for fresh seafood and a traditional atmosphere. The waiter will show you the catches of the day, some of which are so big that they are only available for two. The menu also offers a good variety of fish, but going with the specials for the day is probably your best... More

We were there last night with two friends. It is a nice historical restaurant with atmosphere. The fish was fresh and staff quite friendly. I would definitely go back again next time I go to Triest

Ate here with a local who has lived in Trieste 70 years & considers this the best. It is definitely for seafood, and wonderful meals. The owner & staff were very friendly & hospitable. Our 6 courses of fish were all excellent, as was the house wine & the risotto. The octopus in olive oil was spectacular, I am hoping... More

Antica Trattoria Menarosti has been serving up wonderful food in Trieste since 1903. The locale is brightly illuminated and elegantly decorated. White painted tables and chairs match the fresh white table linens and napkins. Pieces of antique rustic furniture also add to the ambience. I was warmly greeted by a charming woman who showed me to a table and commenced... More

Nice place, a bit noisy, always packed, excellent offer of fresh local fish and seafood. Staff super nice and good value for money. We had seafood risotto and wonderful fresh local fish. Appetizers are also various and really good. A place we recommend just a few minutes walk away from the center.

When I asked a real citizen of Trieste to suggest a place for a good dinner, she told me, very passionately, that I should try the Antica Trattoria Menarosti. At the restaurant, the waitress presented us the options of the day and we couldn't honestly be more pleased with her suggestions. Starting with an antipasto misto, we moved to a... More

For us the only draw back to this restaurant was the bright (and I mean bright) lighting. However, the friendly staff, busy neighbourhood feeling and incredible fresh fish soon distracted us. We started with a green salad and shared baked Turbot done in a lovely lemon sauce and served with potatoes roasted with the fish. The fresh fish is whole,... More
