Not to be missed

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.

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;...

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
