My wife and I are just back from the charming and history-rich city of Trieste, one of the hidden pearls of Italy. It is located very close to the border with Slovenia. It is a city with a wonderful mix of many different cultures. Not far from Trieste's Cathedral we found this little gem called Strabacco. With typical Italian flair,... More

We recently had dinner at Stra Bacco and unfortunately I came away with a slightly different perception of this restaurant than most TA reviewers. The local is situated in a quaintly decorated older building, featuring a rustic wood motif. Tables were set with nice tablecloths and quality eating utensils (including a great steak knife.) There was a constant annoying mix... More

Tucked away on a tiny side street, Strabacco is not to be missed. Great service, delicious food, welcoming ambiance. The owners Santo and Gio are dedicated to finding the best meats and local produce for their meals. The grilled meats were to perfection, and my friends who had pasta were very pleased. The appetizers were original and delicate leaving plenty... More

Full on grill restaurant were you can enjoy the best Tagliata in Trieste. Cooked slowly on the wood fire to perfection. (expect some waiting if you order a big pice of meat) Friendly Santo and Gio told us that the meat comes from a farm in England and in their opinion is the best meat they can find on the... More

What a fantastic restaurant. I had lamb, perfectly cooked, and my wife had the beef which I’m told was amazing. The waiter spoke great English (not surprising given he used to live in London) and they had an English translation menu. Great service, meal for two including wine 80 Euros. Best to make a reservation.

We had a full dinner menu at this unique place and it was extraordinarily delicious and well presented. The prices are one the higher side for Trieste but very well worth it. The service was excellent in both Italian and English (we spoke both proficiently). Also, the menu was available in Italian and English. Overall an outstanding experience and a... More

From the outside it didn't look special at all but once in.. I couldn't believe it.. it was like when we went to the hills in Tuscany. the place is full of... More

I have been to this restuarant twice now on both trips to Trieste (Business) and they have both been of excellant quality. The first time they didn't have a menu, but wasn't a problem, enjoyed the interaction with my awful Italian and his broken but good English. The second time, the menu was presented and excellent it was, with the... More
