“authentic Italian dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012 via mobile

Definitely try this restaurant its one of a kind. The service is great, the owners don't speak English but try really hard to communicate. The food is excellent, the best I had in Italy. The atmosphere its really cosy since there are only 4 tables and the kitchen is open. Also the prices are very low. In short this is probably the best and most unique dining experience in the city! Make sure to have a reservation though.

“Intesive and authentic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

Very intesive and authentic experience. The restaurant is very small, basically consists of one room only, so that there are only several places to sit, but even though it is obviously very popular among local people. Despite a language barrier (solved in the end by talking Czech x Slovenian :) ) the staff was very helpfull, we were recommanded whole seafruit menu including wine, so that we were very satisfied.

“What a blast ! This is a true local experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2011

Tucked away down a litle alley, this is a restaurant only the locals would know about. A very old restaurant run by a husband and wife witht the help of friendly staff, its small interior is reminiscent of an early 1800's tavern. Excellent food cooked fresh. No menu as what's on offer depends on what is fresh at the markets and what the cook feels like cooking on the day. Frequented by older locals who all seem to know each other. There's a lot of freindly banter, back slapping and finally, if you're really lucky, you'll be there on a day when they all break out singing old Triestian songs. It's a real experience!
