Fantastic fish and seafood dishes. Very friendly service. Cosy unpretentious atmosphere- advise booking ahead as it’s tiny, especially inside which only has about 5 or 6 tables. Reasonable prices. Fresh and delicious. Only wish we had a chance to return!

It is a 6 table each for two place so be sure to book before you go. Dishes are very tasty although a tiny bit pricy but nevertheless you will find "your" meal with the help of the really really friendly staff Recommended

Found this on my own while spending a day wandering and exploring Trieste. Sat at one of about a half-dozen outdoor tables on a bright, sunny Spring afternoon, and had a simply wonderful lunch. One of my best meals during 12 days all over Northern...More
