I think my title says it all. We ate there twice on a 2 night Stay in Trieste. Both meals were delicious, atmospheric and the wait staff were very friendly and attentive. We passed the restaurant several times during our stay as our accommodation was nearby, and there was always a smile and a friendly word as we passed. The gnocchi with truffle was my top pick, but we enjoyed also the prosciutto and cheese antipasto and the steak.
Oh yes, and the desserts!

An old-fashioned restaurant away from downtown's turmoil. Nice ambiance, perfect service. I was in a group of 16, we had two small appetizers - one, some sort of cold cut with a cheese strudel, was delicious; three small servings of different pastas, one, "penne" with chicken and tomato sauce, was very good, the other two were ok; super lamb ribs; good semifreddo. Good local (from Friuli) cabernet sauvignon wine. Cost, 50 euros, I think it is reasonable for the quality and service. One of us was celiac and the owner handled the situation very satisfactorily. Recommended.

I recommend visiting Antica Trattoria Suban if you want to try to local food. The serve both pasta and meat dishes and they even have a dish for vegetarians too (although some of the past dishes are also vegetarian)! The portion sizes are reasonable (not to small or too large).
The prices are slightly on the high end for a trattoria, but it is worth the money. Appetizers where between €8-12, first course (pasta dishes) €8, second course (meat dishes) €12 and up and side dishes €4 (table charge was €3 per person, I believe). I don't remember the price of the wine, although we took the house wine which was quiet good.
On the downside, this trattoria is located about 3 km from the center of Trieste, but you should be able to take a bus at least part of the way there if you don't have a car.

Meat grilled form the fogolar (grill)
go when you crave meat.
The service was just great form the waiter ( the bald one) great with help on the wine!! , the other one wants to constantly speak german, i just want to speak italian. the old owner greet you, but pays attention to his italian clientele. on our night there were just about ten tables (which filled the room. and the atmosphere was great, the experience great due to our great and attentive waiter.
the staff treats a tourist just like a local, but don't come to eat salad.

greatest disappointment: there was a DUNCE of a waitress who didn't know what to do all night long. to my disgust she changed after SHE was down with her short and sat down with other clients at a table in the restaurant. INEXCUSABLE even is she would have been the granddaughter of the owner. We left shortly after as service and guests don't have a reason to mingle in the same dining room. Sorry!
