Excellent as usual. White truffles on linguine and on battuta di fassona (tartare) the best I ever had. correct wine choice very nice environment and good service. 70€ each for a triffles dinner with wines is a steal. My favorite restaurant in TriesteMore

It’s a cool room, indicating quality and serious commitment. There’s a brief but interesting menu, with Italian classics given a fresh twist. We loved the courgette flowers, uniquely displayed. Pasta was good, and our fish was excellent. The Asian touch injects lightness which contrasts with...More

This is considered by many as the best restaurant in Trieste and has a Michelin star to prove it. We expected more. The food was just so-so, the ambience a bit cold. The service was friendly enough (son of the owner waited on us) but...More
