A pretty typical Italian restaurant with nice plates. But that's not the reason I wrote this review. I wrote it to recommend the 'pasta con gallina'

Italy food from the best side. It’s not about special ingredients, amazing view - it’s about taste. You get the best meat, the best pasta, or simply the best bread with olive oil. That place serves true Italian food. Without any suggestions our table lady understood that we would to share antipasti (angus carpaccio con rucola - amazing!), not share pasta (con ragu & frutti di mare), share roastbeef. Vino di casa, un caffe as usually are the best choice!

Definitely go here - suitable for meat eaters, vegans, wine-lovers, the lot.

10 of us showed up, no reservation, about an hour and a half before closing. We sat and were served the most delicious food.

The waitress was incredibly helpful, translating most of the expansive menu for everyone and helping us pick foods we could eat (there were gluten, milk, seafood, and egg dietary restrictions, as well as vegans and vegetarians). The options were plentiful and the food was exquisite.

About half an hour before closing, 3 more people joined the party and their food came out with the rest of ours.

We ate the vegan burger option (delicious), there was also a mix of seafood dishes including octopus and sardines. People also ate steaks (The Argentinian steak was insanely good), plus chicken risotto, seafood tagliatelle, house salads, vegetarian dishes, anti-pasti, and a lot of house red wine. All was delicious.

The waiter was lovely, as was the lady running service and the gentleman behind the counter in the centre of the restaurant. Oh, and the prices were very, very reasonable.

Would definitely recommend this place to anyone passing through Trieste. Thank you so much for your hospitality and wonderful food! Grazie!

After a couple of hours searching, in crowded Trieste, for a restaurant which offered something more than the single vegetarian option of a caprese salad, and preferably a restaurant which wasn’t on the hot and dusty streets crammed to the gills with cruise passengers sporting orange wrist bands, we were about to give up when we spotted, far from the madding crowd, an osteria tucked right away from the tourist zone, with no outside seating and no billboard menus in 32 different languages, indicated by a single lantern above the door. This place is a gem; a popular spot for locals with a kind of hipster vibe most unusual for Italy. While there were plenty of options with dead pig for the carnivores to slaver over, the real value in this lovely locale were the carefully prepared and cheerfully presented vegetarian dishes. We both had polpettine di melanzane which were served on a bed of black riso venere and coated with a velvety feta sauce topped with a dollop of caponata. We selected four contorni - borlotti beans and onions, green beans in tomato sugo, oven-roasted potatoes and more of the caponata. We were kindly offered a pre-luncheon appetiser of zucchine fritters which set everything off to a good start. All this was lubricated by a very fine Sancin wine from the Trieste area. We shared a crostata of fig as a pudding, followed by coffee and a digestivo. Staff here are efficient, friendly and professional.
