Brilliant

If you're in Trieste please take the time and have dinner in Suban. The food is great and the atmosphere is very welcoming. The owner drops by and says hi and tells you all about the history of the restaurant.

This is the restaurant for a real taste of Trieste. It serves traditional food such as goulash, jota, and smoked venison. The restaurant is old-world charm. The service was excellent. It is out of the way but definitely worth the taxi ride.

Suban… is Suban! Anybody in town knows who Suban is, what Suban is: the oldest restaurant in town, the best place in town, the Pope ate there when he visited Trieste and so do many VIPs. It's traditional cooking is consistent and Mario is always there to greet each one of his guests. Lunch or dinner at Sudan is a... More

We booked for 12 persons. As the private room was free, we were gently presented to move to the private room. The dinner was lovely and a nice choice. Service was fluent and we enjoyed every minute. Nive environment and excellent friendly service !

Nice place warm atmosphere VERY GOOD FOOD. The waiter was very professional he explained all about the dishes but the only thing missing was a written menu with prices. We found out the price at the end. Paid 66 euros for 2 antipasti 2 primi 2 dolci 1 bottle of wine and 1 of water.

We went here for dinner, at suggestion of local tour guide. We couldn't have been more pleased. [only drawback was 32 Euros round trip taxi fare from town square]. The food was excellent, fairly priced, and the service and ambiance. We would return for sure.

Somewhat out of town, ths restaurant is worth traveling there! The dining room is big but gemütlich, the service very attentive and you get traditional friulani food at its best. The restaurant is famous for its meat-dishes, especially those don on the Foolar-Grill, you can watch while your food is prepared. We had a mixed first course with the best... More

We moved to Trieste in 1989, but only ones , many years ago we ate in this restaurant. We decided to revisit this plate with our friends at the end of September. The food was very good ( not so traditional as I remember it to be ) with interesting twist to it. We had the 4 course menu. The... More
