Trattoria Al Faro, a small, rustic village inn built at the beginning of early '900, in close proximity to the historic monument Triestino "The Victory Lighthouse". Located in a unique position from which extends a breathtaking view of the Gulf of Trieste. Throughout the year excites its guests with the magic that emanates .. Gorgeous during the summer, with its terrace and enchanting view, and romantic during the winter with its cozy dining room, rustic style and warmth of it's fireplace. Here, traditionally is prepared fish. Just like the view of the sea imposes.
