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

I travel 4-5 times a year for business in Trieste; however, this marks my first visit to Antica Trattoria Suban. I came here based on the numerous positive reviews on TripAdvisor. Suban has had several years of experience, opening in 1865! Yes, the staff has changed over the years and the current management and staff are the best I've encountered... More

I think my title says it all. We ate there twice on a 2 night Stay in Trieste. Both meals were delicious, atmospheric and the wait staff were very friendly and attentive. We passed the restaurant several times during our stay as our accommodation was nearby, and there was always a smile and a friendly word as we passed. The... More

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

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
