Traditional Trieste's restaurant, with very cozy atmosphere and good service in the proximity of San Giusto's castle. So far the best quality meat in the city. Superlative tartara and fassona. Home made great quality desserts. Price surprisingly low, you can have a great dinner in...More

We went to Da Libero without having any idea of the place and the food. It was a super positive surprise; nice place, kind waitress and really delicious traditional cuisine. I absolutely recommend this hidden gem.

I have come to Libero several times with my colleagues. Already for lunch (cheap!) the quality and the taste is amazing. A simple and small place for having a good chat and a quiet break: one cannot desire anything better!

We were staying in Trieste away from the old town and wanted to eat close to where we were staying, so we did a Trip Adviser search and headed off for Da Libero. It lived up to all the recent reviews and we were delighted...More
