Took a date and chose the 5 course here to sample and was quite satisfied overall. The food was fresh and tasty, really nice tender branzini cooked in a salt crust, and tasty busara. These are some classic tastes of Adriatic and they do them well. To add a bit of flair they also had some more unique dishes as... More

A nice little restaurant with only a couple of tables, the atmosphere was ok, a couple of unnecessary decorative details on the table, nice music in the background..ok wine list but could be better, great service..but on to the food - while I applaude the efforts of experimenting with different flavors and trying to bring something new to the table,...

The service is very good, the tables are set in a way you have a good privacy when dining. Different types of bread are home made. The food is excellent and the wine selection is very good.

Unless you knew how to find this restaurant - we were recommended it by John Brunton, of The Guardian fame, it would be easy to miss. Through a small door you are greeted in a classic family dining room where local wines are beautifully displayed. The welcome is very friendly and professional. The menu offers very fresh local fish and... More

The amuse bouche followed salted cod with polents and amazing salmon cavair with horseradish cream with fried and sliced Jerusalem artichoke then succulent fish with wine pairing was slightly lessened by the line from the staff that they would have to bring over the owner. It seemed a little pompous. The decoration and space was fine it would take a... More

Went here with locals - restaurant would have been missed if we were on our own. Food was simple and tasty. The Chef really tried to showcase the food of the region in a simplistic manner without overpowering the natural food flavours.

A young couple runs this small restaurant in the center of Trieste. They offer high class fish and seafood revisiting the local cuisine with creative ideas. I recommend their tasting menu: five entries, each with an excellent local wine. Great collection of grappa for terminating. The price is relatively high but totally deserved. Very careful and firendly service. I would... More

Amazing fish and seafood in this smallish, pleasantly traditional-looking restaurant, cooked with great creativity and sophistication. The service too is exceptional – very intelligent and professional. Prices, while not cheap, are great value for the quality of cooking on offer. Desserts live up to the standard of the other courses. Altogether, highly recommended.

Only about 20 seats, so you need to book. About 6 dishes to choose from for each course and some might not be available and will have had an alternative substituted. Our choices (unusual in some cases) were delicious. Good choice of wines. A meal not to be taken in a hurry. Lovely staff who explain what you are about... More

Description
For almost 45 years now, the Al Bagatto Restaurant has been providing this wonderful city a place to try the best fresh fish around. This has sometimes meant offering an alternative all-meat menu or even closing the restaurant when the quality fish that you know us for, and which distinguishes us, was not available.
