An old-fashioned restaurant away from downtown's turmoil. Nice ambiance, perfect service. I was in a group of 16, we had two small appetizers - one, some sort of cold cut with a cheese strudel, was delicious; three small servings of different pastas, one, "penne" with chicken and tomato sauce, was very good, the other two were ok; super lamb ribs;...

I recommend visiting Antica Trattoria Suban if you want to try to local food. The serve both pasta and meat dishes and they even have a dish for vegetarians too (although some of the past dishes are also vegetarian)! The portion sizes are reasonable (not to small or too large). The prices are slightly on the high end for a... More

Best ever in Trst. Good food and awesome waitress. Taste jota carsica, palacinka and cervo affumicato... Great location out from the centre of the city.

It really doesn't get much better than this if you want rustic Italian. This place has it all--great food, great service, great local wines, great ambiance, and the service is tops. Wish they had a sister (or brother) location in NYC

This place is a classic in Trieste. It's almost part of the city, like the icy wind called BORA that freezes you in winter The food here very traditional, not anazing but very consistent. A bit pricey compared to other restaurants in Trieste, but a good choice. Will not wow you, but it is reliable.

I dined here with a party of 3 adults and 3 children on a very warm night. The vine-covered terrace is delightful, and the tables are far enough apart for each to be its own island of sound (nice not to be worried about the children disturbing other diners). The food was excellent for both the adults (antipasti, primi, desert... More

I agree with other reviews that the food, whilst Ok, is overpriced, food + wine 72 euros. The restaurant, curiously well sign posted in Trieste, unlike others, leading to expectations which were dashed. The interior looks tired and not the romantic venue my wife had hoped for on my birthday. The staff were pleasant and efficient. We will not be... More

If you like to taste the traditional cuisine of Trieste this is the right place: forget the fish, the serve mitteleuropa austr-hungarian style. It is expensive but the quality deserves a price. Excellent for a business dinner, professional staff and a good choice of wine. You will not expect it in such a traditional place, but they have tasty options... More
