“Beatiful location, mediocre restaurant”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

Beatiful location on a pier on the Trieste waterfront, and nice decor. I had a decent appetizer of gratiné seafood, while my main course (orecchiette with tuna eggs [bottarga di tonno] and pistachio) was absolutely modest, almost tasteless. With two appetizers, my orecchiette, a small serving of grilled fish for my friend, one dessert, one coffee, half a liter of house wine and water, 74 euros; too much for the quality we got. Service needs to be improved: no written menu, and the waiters are quite unprofessional in their dressing.

“What a pity”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

This is basically the only restaurant on the sea front in Trieste.
The food is very poor, the service totally naif... we were 5 people and 2 of us did not get the main course after 30 minutes... the chef had forgotten them!
We were offered some desserts, but it was not very pleasant to have invited some foreign guests to dinner in suc place.

“Inique location”
Reviewed August 16, 2011

The best location in town. Food not excellent, but satisfactory considering you can eat fish with less than 50 euro, wine included.
