“Great lunch”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

It was hot. We were hungry. We looked for a place for our family. We found it here. Great and simple pizzas, quick and friendly service, not too expensive. And the insalata mista was massive. It was just what we needed.

“Trieste eats Naples”
Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

Just look for the owner of the place and talk to him, he will deal with you in a very professional, quick, confident yet empathic way - you will really feel like you find yourself in the depth of Italy.
The set is quite slim, in the sense that the actual restaurant is long, big enough to host a noisy, young, or simply dynamic blend of people and give you the time to enjoy a freshly spilled Italian beer while waiting for a spot for you to be released.
You definitely may want to book yours in advance, next time, unless you wish to be set to wait for a while - a long one, up in the weekends.
Pay attention to the menu itself, it is not really a obvious one, there you will find interesting stories about how the "pizza" itself was born.
And, the names by which the different options listed are called are interestingly enough inspired by the elegant names of historical, famous personalities of the city of Naples.
The pizza is made just perfectly, the actual shape it gets, the way of putting all the ingredients upon it and, of course, the way it is cooked will most likely make you missing it, the next time you will have one elsewhere.
In the summertime, it will be a pleasure to sit out and watch the people walking the "struscio" along Trieste's old city area, when many beautiful girls will be queuing for a table there, too.

“Great pasta and pizza”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We went there in a large group during a conference at ICTP, the price was good and service was very nice. The owner was there, and he was very cool and helpful. The pasta and pizza were very tasty. The fried mixed vegetables for appetizers were GREAT, don't forget to try that if you go there.

“BEST pizza in Trieste!”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

We ate here twice! and enjoyed both meals! Would recommend a reservation because it is popular with the natives and the tourists alike. The wait staff tries hard and really wants you to enjoy the meal! A definite place to eat!
