Hard to find but well worth the effort. If you want an authentic Trattoria you cant go wrong. Tucked away down a side street this Restaurant ticks all the boxes. we had the marinated sardines as a starter followed by spaghetti with seafood . A good choice of wines.

The restaurant was extremely busy and they told us that they had no room for us , but we could wait inside for a table. The aromas from the kitchen kept us happily waiting (along with the tasty house white) When we were finally served -we were not disappointed. We had the spaghetti vongole and a salad. The vongole was... More

(Visited May 2016) While on a day trip to Trieste and desperately seeking to avoid "tourist trap" restaurants, I chanced upon this little place down a side street - the presence of local customers outside and in, as well as the menu, drew me in for lunch. I enjoyed it and if I were in Trieste again, I would definitely... More

Small restaurant in Trieste. Very nice fish! One day we took rombo with potatoes, amazing. Everything is very good, starting from the appetizers and finishing with the dessert. Enjoy it.

Secondo was Rombo from the oven with potatoes. Fish was perfectly done, cooked in its own juices - potatoes soak in all the flavours.Also we tried... More

After second try managed to book a table at this small pearl of italian cousin. Fish and home made pasta dominates the small but very persuasive menu. Starter with anti pasta octopus with boiled potato on bed of rucola and marinated sardines with onions - superb. Primo was spaghettini alla vongole with cherry tomatos - also a must when here....

Every time i visit Alla Sorgente i can't resist to order almost everything available :-) very simple but excellent cooking, with so much precision and lot of finesse, it is really difficult to recommend anything from the ever-changing menu... If one is looking for authentic low-profile getaway from tourist traps, this the place to go! Very nice and pollite waiter... More

We went there on the recommendation of other travellers and we're glad we took the time to find it. Language was a problem but with smiles and hand signs that was easily overcome. We watched as our meal was prepared and enjoyed our whole evening. Would definitely re-visit if we ever back in Trieste. The lady chef was a Gm!
