Had a great meal here. Very extensive wine list. Small sized restaurant, but functional. I would go there again.

Stumbled across it on Michelin. A small and very quiet place on that Saturday night. Friendly service, excellent choice of food and local wines. Had zucchini flower tempura with pepper sorbet, a sort of local seafood broth, tuna hamburger, beef steak with a peculiar type of wonderful potato croquettes. Food quality was excellent, so was the presentation. A must in... More

We chose the gourmet menu of 7 dishes, plus they provided two starters. We also asked for matching wines. They provided 6 wines that perfectly matched the food. The food itself was imaginative, beautifully prepared and presented and very tasty The waiters and maitre d were excellent, helpful and professional. overall, a great night

Tucked away in a side street not far from the station and so discreet that you could almost walk past it without noticing this restaurant is really well worth hunting down. Very helpful staff who are able to explain the dishes in very good English (useful unless you're familiar with the Italian names of various fishes). We stuck to the... More

My husband and I were staying in Portoroz, Slovenia and decided to drive over to Trieste for dinner in an attempt to salvage a rather rough day. This place really delivered and we forgot about our stressful day. We were greeted warmly by the owner and shown to our table. We decided on doing the five course chef's choice tasting... More

A beautiful atmosphere in a lovely design. The wines and food were simply magnificent. The foie gras with accompaniments, the polpo, the tuna, the sauces the music, the staff. This is Michelin-rated because they care passionately about the taste of food: the tastes made us happy and we left smiling. I should add that we were the only booking because... More

We tried this restaurant near our hotel in Trieste and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service. Tucked away in Via Rittsmeher you have to be looking for it to find it. The decor is nicely done; modern & urban. From the welcome through to leaving we were made to feel welcome and special. We went... More

A real find in Trieste. The restaurant is in a nondescript street but inside it is stylishly decorated. The food was first class - sophisticated, tasty and delightfully presented. The service was professional and very helpful (the menu was completedly translated into English for us and explained). Between our group we had the Meat, Fish and Vegetarian menus and our... More

From the moment we arrived at this lovely restaurant, everything was perfect. The room is sleek and beautifully decorated with modern art. The owner was very welcoming and speaks impeccable English. She explained that since the menu changes every two weeks, it isn't printed in English. Instead, she took the time to translate it for us line-by-line, and make recommendations.... More

Absolutely normal "linguine" with anchovies, and overcooked fried fish; sorbet for dessert; one bottle of white wine to be shared in three, mineral water and coffee; total, 56 euros. Price inversely proportional to quality. There are many better restaurants in Trieste for less money.
