A must for anyone wanting great Tuscan food in a quaint restaurant with terrific service. We visited the last night of our 2 week trip. We had an amazing bottle of Movia Cabernet Sauvignon. My son had the stuffed pork chop, my daughter had the pasta with wild boar sauce, and I the beef with mushroom sauce. All was amazing.... More

If you want to eat typical tuscan food in Trieste area, Al Toscano is THE place. It is located on a steep road connecting Opčine and Trst. The easiest way to get there is going down from Obelisco, against all signs. Tuscan antipasti with sheep cheese, salamini, papa al pomodoro, florentine steak, risotto with asparagi... everything is excellent. And again,... More

Great family run restaurant. Cozy and warm in winter with a nice garden in summer times. I have always eaten really well here. If you are a meat lover you should definetly give this restaurant a try. Tuscan style from appetizers to dessert. Fiorentine T-Bone chianina steak and fillet ( just to mention a few of my favorites) are all... More

I had lunch at this place that I only knew because I passed by very often. Really a pleasant surprise both from a culinary point of view (Tuscan especialities) that with regard to the courtesy of the staff and managers. We want to go back and recommend you to try this amazing restaurant.

Several years ago I tried out the restaurant Al Toscano, recommended to me by a friend (I am gluten intolerant, and she heard that the owners have personal knowledge of this problem).

We took a taxi up the hill to this nice family run restaurant. As in all of Italy the taxi drivers tend to be practicing for the next Formula 1 race.

Been to Al Toscano twice in seven days, first with my brother and later with my wife and daughters. Al Toscano is a must if you like your meat and you are in the Trieste region. Very good antipasti toscani, the ones made from boar were delicious. Of course, one will have to try their fiorantina, the Toscano T-bone steak,... More

On a winding hillside road in Trieste you will find this wonderful, cozy family restaurant. The grill is the centerpiece of the spacious room, and the chef lovingly cooks the Fiorentina and Costata steaks. We had a delicious appetizer of sausage and a type of prosciutto, followed by very homemade pappardelle with chinghiale and ribollita. The very reasonable Costata Della... More

As the name implies, they are specialized in cuisine from Tuscany (quite rare in Trieste). Unless they serve mostly meat, you can find a good choice ov vegetarian dishes, It is noteworthy the fact that you can have a gluten free meal (just ask before your order). Good wine, delicious home made desserts.
