We went there because of an article in the New York Times. The place is small and local. Not much English. We ordered whatever they told us to eat and had a great time. Listen, this isn't a fine restaurant, this is a local place where the food might be hit or miss. But we enjoyed ourselves immensely. The owner ( a woman who speaks no English) communicated to us that she knew of the NYT article but had never seen it. We went back the next day and presented her with our copy, so if you go there and see it on the wall raise a glass to that reporter who found this local gem.

This trattoria is tiny, so you need to make a reservation in advance if you want to secure a great seafood experience. We both had marinated sardines with onions, (alici in savor) and a very generous first course each, one home made spaghetti alle vongole with cherry tomatoes (very tasty) whlst I had a superb gnocchi with porcini mushrooms and prawns, unforgettable. A nice bottle of affordable prosecco (good wine choice) and a couple of home made desserts for approx. 35€ each, absolutely worth the trip.
They have an open kitchen, you can see all the proceedings + it is usually a guarantee for quality and cleanliness (that includes the spotless bathroom). Excellent service too, all customers looked happy and I will definitely go back if we visit Trieste again.

To finish up the Italian vacation were looking for a seafood lunch in Triest. Alla Sorgente was a great choice. We tried mussels, mixed plate, turbot and the chocolate cake. All had a great taste. Take your time and try if around.

We visited Triest during our holidays in northern Italy. First evening Hotel has
warmly recommended us this restaurant.When we came in we were already disappointed,lady was cooking in front of guests and dining room was too small. High prices for what we had, food, service and venue.

We were looking for another place to have dinner (another one that we also found on trip advisor) but bc there are troubles with parking we needed to make couple of more circles around to leave the car. Being in Trieste for the first time we could not find the place we planned to visit at the first place and started to wander around :) And good that we did bc accidentally we found this lovely, cosy and extremely tasty restaurant! First time we entered they said "unfortunate no free tables..." (always consider making a booking beforehand in Italy on Friday night) but when we dropped by second time we agreed we will wait for the table outside with a glass of wine The place was so welcoming we decided to have dinner outside covered in blankets :) Those two glasses of white wine were on the house and the "house" itself with Sandra in charge was peeeeerfect! We def recommend the place, the time worth waiting and food! Tagliatelle with shrimps and another type of pasta with fish and tomato was deliiiiiicious 5 points out of 5!
