The food was overwhelmingly poor. Relatively inexpensive for seafood but that is meaningless if it isn't good. Maybe it was the chef's day off. There would be dozens of better places to eat in Trieste.

I hasten to caution anyone not to be deceived by the "reservations required" postings that might suggest Antipastoteca di Mare is an excellent restaurant. I would score the service as being worse than the food we ordered, but since we chose to leave immediately after receiving the seafood platter we ordered, my opinion may not have a strong foundation.

This restaurant is set in a neighborhood above the main part of the city and parking wasn't easy, but it was well worth the effort. We had the soup with mussels, beans and potatoes and of course the famous fish soup, as well as handmade pasta with clams and finally sardines and polenta. All of it was served by the... More

Ariston is a greek word meaning the best. That is exactly what this restaurant deserves as a rating. One has to note that it is not a michelin awarded restaurant nor does it claim to be one. It is a tiny place with not more than 30 seatings and a vivacious lean and tall Italian chef-owner running around to serve... More

This is an informal restaurant, with simple and rustic decoration. It's a bit hidden and not easy to find. Robi, the owner and chef received us with a welcoming smile. He explained the menu and specials of the day and gave us time to think. His mussels, bean and potato soup is unique! Don't miss it! Also the fish soups... More

Looking for a small fish restaurant away from the tourist scene? This could be it. Only fish on the menu, cooked to order, in an small authentic setting. Our wine (local) was very good and the meal affordable. Be sure to book a table- the room only seats 25 or so, and a few walkups were unable to secure a... More

If you want to try authentic local Trieste cuisine, this is a place not to be missed.. We loved all the dishes: the appetizers, the primi and secondi dishes. The pasta, the famous fish soup and the mixed appetizer platter are not to be missed. The owner is very friendly and is eager to explain the dishes. The atmosphere is... More
