“Good atmosphere in Barcola”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Practically on the sea, nice place with good food and service. Also good value for the money. If you'll really like it.....there is a little charming few rooms hotel aside to spend the night, same property.

“I brake for Tre Merli”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

We were driving through Trieste along the coast at lunch time hoping to find a good restaurant, and there it was! It has a small parking area. From the road, it does not look really impressive but the restaurant is very nice on the inside. The napkins were cloth, and the wine glasses very beautiful. The breadsticks were made on premises and of high quality. My son had a friend along with him and they unfortunately used the long breadsticks for a sword fight. The boys had a nice pasta ragu and french fries. Surprisingly, I have had better french fries in Italy than in the united states, and these french fries at this restaurant did not disappoint. My husband and I had the seafood buffet and seafood risotto of the day. The buffet was very nice and probably had 20 different dishes to sample. My husband took a little of every dish and said that everything was wonderful; he had expected to come across something he didn't like but that didn't happen. There were little octupus, plates of fat sardines,slices of tuna, grilled zucchini two ways, beans in a red sauce, broccoli, mesclun salad greens, roasted peppers with olives, fried onion rings, radicchio trevisio, calamari rings in marinade, and more but I don't remember everything. Our seafood risotto was excellent with porcini mushrooms and shrimp. The house white wine was exceptional. We had three deserts to split - an apple cake with custard cream, a flan, and a chocolate amaretto flan. Everything was superb. It was a nice atmosphere with friendly attentive wait staff. Kids and dogs were welcome. While we were there, there were two dogs visiting the restaurant . I swear they purposely took a little something off my bill at the end, so it seemed like a bargain. The bathrooms were clean, modern, and colorful.

“perfect value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

Last time I was there in December 2011, food quality is still very good for money you spend there, we even ended up chatting with one of the owners. During the spring and summer you can sit outside and enjoy the sea few meters from you.... amazing atmosphere. Will come again for sure.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2009

When you get in you think that the sea view is stunning, but when you start eating you realize that the best had yet to come. Lovely environment, lovely food, even the pizza if you don't like fish (is there anybody who doesn't like fish btw?).
