We enjoyed the wonderful view and food while relaxing during our tour of beautiful Trieste! The awning provided shade while we took in the delicacies and scenery. It is so wonderful to see the owner of this restaurant interact with the customers, serve food, adjust the awning, etc. We hope to return in the future.
Much success to our new friend, Guiseppe!

We sat down and absorbed all 'the beauty' there was around... then we moved to the 'savory' ... patisserie is exquisite... and hot chocolate with cream a delight. I would come everyday!

The autumn afternoon was sunny with a slight chill in the air as we strolled across the Piazza to this much-acclaimed café. Mine is not a review of our late afternoon sandwich which was mediocre and expensive; it is a review of ambience and service.

We were seated outside. The slow service from an indifferent waiter gave me time to be ever more annoyed by the loud American disco tunes piped through several speakers. Now remember that we were seated on the cobbles of the beautiful Piazza Unità d´Italia with sweeping views of the Triestine architecture and the Adriatic. Why on earth would management lower the prestige of this lovely spot and compromise the vistas with blaring, outdated American songs? To his credit, I asked that the music be lowered and the manager complied, but it was still audible, rankling. Ironically, all the patrons at this time of day were 40 or older, not exactly a disco-loving demographic! As we waited and waited after asking for our check, I wondered what Jan Morris would think of the café now.

Owners, don't be tone deaf to your patrons. If you must have music, try something less grating, or here is a concept for you: eliminate the music and let the setting speak for itself!

This cafe has what is unquestionably one of the best hot chocolates available in Europe. The owner has won European awards for his chocolate and if you want to sit, relax, enjoy some dolce vita, and satisfy your chocolate cravings, this is the place! Other selections, like their pastries were of the highest standards.

The views of the piazza and out to see are marvelous, service was attentive and overall this is a 5 star experience. The overall feel of this place is not that of a tourist trap, but of a well managed cafe with quite a few local business people stopping by for a cafe and chat before heading back to work.

If you're in Trieste this is not to be missed. Its not a tourist trap but very much a beloved part of Trieste's history and future.
