“Great atmosphere! Food is ok.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

We sat at one of the outside tables and the atmosphere was really great. The food wasn't bad, but I have had consistently better food at other restaurants.

“Yummy Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

We were able to sit as soon as we got there and since it was raining we asked to sit inside. Wish we would have sat outside. It was REALLY loud inside. They had a large group of adults and kids. BUT the service was great and the food was great. My husband had pizza and I had pasta. Would go back but I will be sitting outside even if it is raining....

“Good food. Poor slow service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

Went to Trieste and wanted some good food. This place does have good food. BUT. one of ordered a dish without meat and found a piece of meat in the meal. Not good if you are particular. It was supposed to be penne and was given gnocchi. The gnocchi dish is more expensive. And it was good. But we were not told that it was not what we ordered. The pizza that was ordered again was really good, but it took so long in coming after the starter that we thought it had been forgotten. After waiting twenty minutes after finishing the starter, with no one telling us anything we were about to leave, I had put my jacket on, it arrived. It was good. Very good.

I would not recommend this place really as there were to many negatives, and I feel certain that other places could produce food as good with better service. Apart from that I would say it is a little expensive for the service, although... Good food does cost more... And the food was good.

“Friendliest trattoria that we found in 60 years of looking.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

So helpful and friendly. Dad tried all the dishes and was very impressed. No mean feat as he is so difficult to please.
portions are traditional so eat a primi piatte and then secondi. Or anti pasta and secondi.
food really is well cooked and prepared.
service brilliant.
Ousmane (10 years at the restaurant) is fantastic.
Sandra is a close secondi
