Extremely trendy and high quality food, yet very informal. We took a drink and seafood (tartine) and octopus salad: among the best I ever had.

Relaxing experience in a lovely little square, just around the corner! Sit and enjoy the wonderful fish tapas, and a glass of local Vitovska! And try the "baccalà mantecato", a creamy cod spread worth the stop!

This is a lovely place. They call themselves "The Fish Laboratory", which is quite suitable I believe. They prepare fine snacks of seafood. Their interaction with the customers is perfectly sincere, warm and welcoming. Each staff member does display a genuine joy of what they...More

Tapas-like seafood in the centre of Trieste, five minutes away from Piazza dell'Unità. Good quality, but pricy given the quantity. The wine was very good but expensive for the quantity (a very small glass). Good for aperitivo.

Make sure to do a "stopover" during your visit at this unique place. Very fresh food perfectly prepared and very simply served as "tapa" or dish. Beside some "classic" tapas, menu changes every day according to the "catch of the day". Don't miss it.
