A little off the beaten path in Trieste, this little restaurant is definitely worth searching out. Located in a quiet square that appears to be coming to life with galleries and restaurants, Barrique is small -- seven tables inside, more seating out front -- and worth the visit. The wine and food menus reflect careful and creative planning, with astute... More

Don't come here if you don't want meat. You name it then it is one the menu plus some others you haven't heard of. No translations on the menu so we just went for it. A single main course of meat was sufficient for each of us. White pork, black pork, fillet and beef. Exquisite. We sat in the open... More

We stumbled on this restaurant mid-day while strolling the back squares and lanes of Trieste. The chef was in the middle of preparing the day's special of wild boar but took time to speak with us. It didn't take long for us to decide THIS is where we wanted to have dinner and eat like the locals. And we weren't... More

Like many restaurants in the area, this one charged more for the same fare we had in the modern city because it was close to the tourist attractions. They gave us glass bottles of water which were refreshing if pricy. All in all,it was great on a hot Sunday afternoon in the area of the colosseum.

Found it by pure coincidence, had a lovely dinner (try the penne alla carbonara) and enjoyed the atmosphere of dining on a little square by dusk.. great food and lovely service at reasonable prices

This was recommended by concierge, a bit tricky to find but it's worth the effort. Next to a roman arch ruin in a pedestrian road, quaint. Menu was in Italian but owner/host was very helpful. Steak tartar was amazing, bruchetto with buffalo cheese, peaches light, tasty. T-bone steak most, tender and flavorful. Otolo pasta which I haven't had before was... More

Staying in an apartment a few metres from this restaurant, it was our ‘local’ and our first choice for dinner when we arrived in Trieste. We chose well. A comprehensive wine list and a host ( an ex sommelier) who was very happy to discuss the wines with my husband, the stage was set for a pleasant evening sitting outside... More

We had ravioloni with vegetables and they tasted excellent! Also the pannacotta for dessert was fresh and tasty. The owner is friendly and accomodating, we were waiting for a table to sit outside because everything else was busy...We suggested him to bring a table out which he did and served us in a timely manner altough the terrace of his...

Fantastic location, great food, very warm ambience. Super accommodating owner speaks English! Don't miss the angus "tartar" (battuta in Italian) and the T bone. Bravi!
