I loved this restaurant. It is situated a little off the tourist trail in a residential area with a few pavement tables. Specialities are polenta and frico (a sort of cheese pancake). Don’t miss the dessert of gubana with grappa. Lovely service.

If you have one meal in Trieste, I suggest Trat. Mara. Last Monday I dined at Mara and enjoyed myself and the food so much that I returned Tuesday night as well. Server and Mara were friendly and attentive and consultative. It was clear they want everyone to enjoy themselves and eat something they will enjoy. First night: I had a plate of mixed vegetables- Everything was so flavorful- not like in the States. Then I had the cjarsons- very good and very typical of the zone. House wine, water, and then - La Gubana, a pastry from the zone with raisins, pine nuts, and cinnamon… served with grappa that you half pour over the cake and half save for later. It was fantastic. Second night: I had the Vedgies again and then rabbit with polenta. The rabbit was meaty, tender, moist, and delicious. Probably the best rabbit I ever had. The menu isn’t huge and sometimes things run out (there weren’t cjarsons my second night). But that means things are fresh and the menu can change. I prefer to eat in the manner. Prices were reasonable especially for the quality. The place is small- so I recommend a reservation. Highly recommend.

Lunchtime. One table was occupied meaning an empty restaurant at that moment but also during our stay. Friendly staff and family atmosphere. Still, that is not enough to overcome the slow service (long waiting time for just two tables). The food itself, honestly, is correct but nothing special. I would even challenge the technical accuracy of food preparation for both dishes. Not recommend.

Tasty, but small portions. The apple strudel should have been at least double the size for the price. Same with the Frico. The orzotto couldn't have been freshly done as it appeared within 10 minutes. Probably microwaved.

Traditional Friulan dishes, cooked and served by a delightful matriarch. I absolutely loved it! Polenta, wild mushrooms, home-cured meats, ravioli with smoked ricotta. Delicious!

Delicious food and extremely friendly staff! The menu is relatively small which is always a good thing :) A must if you’re in Trieste!

We ve been there today. We were quiet disappinted. Overal feeling was not as we expected base on reviews. Menu was so tiny, it has contained 13. courses. We miss some kind of atmosphere as music for example. Food was so average and prices were much higher than we expected. We were so unsatisfied.

We were staying at the Savoia, it was raining, and I read about Mara's place! We grabbed our umbrellas, walked to locate it, walked back, then returned for lunch! Lucky us! We were able to get a table immediately and we are still talking about the food, and lovely Mara. I wish I had taken my photo with her, as others have. Anyway, we travelled throughout Italy, driving, for one month, and this was one of the BEST meals!

Don't expect designed ambient, long menu or fancy food. What you get is one person - Mara doing it all. You are being served as a member of the family.it Food is regional, prepared with rare honesty, nothing presumptuous but simple and fresh. The price is very very reasonable. And have a glass of incredible Cabernet franc - her house wine.

The colder it is outside the cosier and warmer it looks inside. Food is typical for the region and is not served in many places in Trieste. But it is delightful. Do not hesitate and try the Guancette di maiale alla birra con patate. Then frico con patate e polenta and for sure try the Cjalsons con erbe o frant conditto con burro fuso e ricotta affumata . The desserts are irresistable.

We had to wait a while although we had booked in advance. But the food was excellent, and the atmosphere was like it should be in a trattoria.
