This tasteful restaurant is a small place located within walking distance from downtown Trieste and its beautiful Piazza Unità d'Italia. Here you can have traditional dishes including the amazing zuppa di pesce (fish soup) served with polenta, sardoni, anchovies, seabass, bream and many others. Don't forget to get mussels as well. Local fresh seafood of the day at reasonable price is the deal you are actually looking for when you are in Trieste. Indeed, the extreme good quality is matched with incredibly low prices and a warm, friendly atmosphere. Your stomach and your wallet will be definitely satisfied.

if you are in trieste don't miss it!
we tried its award-winning brodetto and it was a revelation!
we also recommend "antipasti misti", the perfect choice if you want to try the genuine fish- based cuisine in trieste. the atmosphere is casual and not pretentious, yet warm and welcoming. the chef is helpful and really into his work!

I really can't put into words the flavors I experimented in this restaurant!

Positive aspects:

*They bring the food quite fast.
*They have a "menu of the day" based on fresh fish that they get in the local market.
*You get drink (could be wine) + antipasto + first/second dish = 20 EUR. An excellent price, given the superb quality!
*Local recommended wine: Malvasia (white)
*Attended by the owner: Roberto (if you speak italian, you will enjoy to spend some time speaking with this man).

PLEASE please and... please:
Do not miss the "Antipasto di pesce e frutti di mare con polenta e pane grigliato all' aglio" = "Seafood and fishapetisers with mush and grilled bread with garlic". This amazing antipasto got a national distinction and it was for sure the best fish antipasto I've ever tried!

Negative aspects:
*The place hasn't got outdoor seating, which you might prefer if you are in summer.
*You don't have any scenic view from there.

Even if they are many places in Trieste where you can eat good fish, I am not sure about how many offer this good quality-price!

Enjoy!

We chose the place after reading opinions at Tripadvisor. Unfortunately we found the visit completely unsuccessful. Apart from the fish soup the meals were minimal and very average. In our opinion it is a place prepared for tourists, not longer a local dining place.
