This restaurant came highly recommended for its goulash - its on the menu, but they aren't serving it. Okay, try the lasagne - once again, on the menu, but they aren't serving it. What I finally got, bresola, was good, not exceptional, but good. The pasta was also a solid good. But add the "guess what we are serving tonight"... More

Traditional cousin with a modern twist, great location, amazing staff. The food is wonderful, and it's the perfect place to spend a summer evening. More than one, actually. Absolutely recommended!

My colleagues and I had ended up having dinner at this restaurant, one of the many in the area. Service was somewhat inefficient: though there seemed to be very few other customers at the moment, it took a very long time to have our table set up, our orders taken and our food brought. In order to get a full... More

Great place for lunch. Their pastas in particular. Ask for advice to the owner. He will recommend the pasta of the day. The fish is from Trieste!

We just got in wanted to eat something but the pastas they served were really delicious. It was a real surprise. And last the lavatory was clean which is an important viewpoint for me.

Sitting out overlooking the square, seafood pasta was delightful (lovely herb infused oil), fresh Fritto misto, refreshing apperitive. Initially forgotten by senior waiter, young waitress took over and was apologetic, quick and helpful. Inside is charming with historic photos of Trieste.

We enjoyed our dinner here as the food was very good. The staff was very welcoming. We ate outside under covering and when it started to drizzle, they happily adjusted the covering to keep everyone dry. We would go back.

Nicely situated on the edge of a piazza in the old town, this is a perfect place for lunch al fresco. We had to wait a short while for a table to become available but the service was efficient. We enjoyed pasta with the house wine. Both were above average and moderately priced. You can't really go wrong with this... More
