We stopped by this small restaurant for lunch on a recent tour of Trieste. The place is located a bit out of the way, conveniently on the way to the top of the hill overlooking the city. The restaurant is warm and inviting, and the service is good (in Italian or English, they are eager to speak English). Two in... More

Trieste is a part of Italy, and the people here speak Italian. But that certainly doesn't mean that the offerings of its restaurants will look just like those of similar restaurants elsewhere in Italy. Al Petes is a case in point. While many of the items on the menu are familiar, and undoubtedly good, the one that caught my eye... More

The location of the restaurant is lovely and the atmosphere seems nice, relaxed and cosy. The antipasto plate was promising, but everything else after that was just average. The biggest disappointment was the service. Our waiter behaved like he couldn't care less of his customers, he just wanted to go home.

We ate dinner here one nand were the first to sit outside "in the garden," on a warm but windy night. Food was good- the pasta with sausage and pecorino was wonderful, the calamari fritti well done, the tagliata de manzo tasty (covered with rock salt-not the usual preparation but very good) The restaurant filled up quickly after we sat,...

After more than 45 minutes of waiting and complaining about it, or cold starters finally arrived and they were simply mediocre. We ate a lot of marinated sardines and octopus salads in our past and these were pretty close to the bottom of that list. Due to limited time we had in Trieste, we had to cancel the rest of... More

Wonderful place with ambience and delicious pasta - lots of flavour. The side dish of spinach was actually delicious although simply done. Drinks were quite inexpensive. Service was friendly even though our Italian is atrocious. A menu in English is available, but not necessary - just choose anything - it's all good!

I really enjoyed my dinner with friends here during a short stay in Trieste. My dish was very good but from the comments of my friends probably the goulash was the best choice. The place is quite small but there is a nice atmosphere and is very central. Prices are honest
