On a winding hillside road in Trieste you will find this wonderful, cozy family restaurant. The grill is the centerpiece of the spacious room, and the chef lovingly cooks the Fiorentina and Costata steaks.

As the name implies, they are specialized in cuisine from Tuscany (quite rare in Trieste). Unless they serve mostly meat, you can find a good choice ov vegetarian dishes, It is noteworthy the fact that you can have a gluten free meal (just ask before your order). Good wine, delicious home made desserts.

We went to this restauran after reading recomendations on TA. It is a small restaurant up in the hill above Trieste. The place itself is old style italian restaurant. Apetizers were nice and tastefull. But when it comes to real thing why you should visit this place, and that is Fiorentina steak, it is apsolutelly excellent. This is the right... More
