We went here with a group of Italian friends. Typical Istrian style of cooking over an open fire. The restaurant is very large with a grand room upstairs, outside tables and an indoor main restaurant where the cooking actions. Stuffed ourselves on dish after dish prepared at the fire. Fantastic gourmet experience. About a 45-minute drive from Trieste.

Ah, such excellent flavours... Beef carpaccio and beef soup were just the beginning. We all decided to have ombolo and sausages with potatoes and cabbage. Really tasty! And for the end orange cream. Looks nothing special, but it was a real culinary experience. Tip: Make a reservation, because there is a good chance, that you won't get a table.

We ordered on the advice of the waiter which was very helpful. In any event, we hit terno for everything we got to the table. Above all, we were surprised because the account was much lower than expected. The food was excellently prepared

We were here in end of October, until the white truffle season. It's a really busy place, you will need a pre booking. We had a small problem with a communication, because just 1 waiter spoke English. Everybody was very nice, but my feeling was a little bit "touristic" place. The wine list nice, the food too… but not a... More

I have been in Konoba Buscina for several times. I always have sea food and enjoy everything they have to offer. The prices are quite high, but you can pick some things from the menu for normal money. Their local res wine is good and not expensive.
