Really good fish. Warm mixed starter was the best fish appetizer I've ever eaten. Ideal for business dinners thanks to the separed room at the end of the restaurant.

Menarosti is one of the few traditional, high quality restaurants survived in the centre of Trieste. Family-run, lovely and traditional decor, the food is always outstanding. Regulars abund - alweays a good sign. Great place.

This authentic seafood trattoria is really cosy. Staff is both professional and friendly. Before dinner receive guests gratis little glass of prosecco and after dinner limoncello. It is very nice and pleasing. Food is absolutely fresh and delicious. Prices are reasonable. Absolute satisfaction.

Final comment is: Very good because my... More
