What a lovely restaurant! Excellent food, friendly efficient service, modern and quirky decor ( even a handbag stand at every table!). The wine list was mainly local and of good value. I think the only criticism is of the external look which probably loses it a few customers, it really is a find and worth a visit. The menu is mainly seafood based so probably best avoided if you prefer meat but there were decent pasta dishes too and an outstanding creme brûlée!
Worth seeking out if you're in Trieste.

Interesting menu of standard and unusual dishes. Decent wine list. Good service. What more could one want?

A quite antique and not at all exiting sign outside does not prelude at all of the very clean, modern design you will find inside. Very inventive cooking, excellent quality fare and good friendly service made this meal a feast for us.

Our party of three were fortunate to be seated without a reservation, although we were placed in the back of the restaurant closest to the restrooms. We ordered an assortment of seafood including the seafood soup and octopus salad. Service was uneven, they were very busy and seemed to forget about us. The overly salted soup arrived after two others had finished their meals. We asked for the check and were happy to leave. I suspect there are many better establishments in downtown Trieste. I highly recommend making reservations as the first three restaurants we visited on a Wednesday evening were completely full.

A trattoria with a sense of fun - the chairs all have different backs and varied pretty glassware on the tables! Good if not exceptional food and attentive staff. It gets very busy so go early or book. A good recommendation from the Starhotel Savoia Palace.
