Based on reviews I read here, I ate here and left a happy fish camper. I had the fish risotto [12 euros], which I rated as one of the best I ever tasted. The lady owner came to our table and showed the fresh fish possibilities for our second plate. Nice atmosphere in the trattoria but the seats are so... More

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

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.
