Description: Trattoria Al Faro, a small, rustic village inn built at the beginning of early '900, in close proximity to the historic monument Triestino "The Victory Lighthouse". Located in a unique position from which extends a breathtaking view of the Gulf of Trieste. Throughout the year excites its guests with the magic that emanates .. Gorgeous during the summer, with its terrace and enchanting view, and romantic during the winter with its cozy dining room, rustic style and warmth of it's fireplace. Here, traditionally is prepared fish. Just like the view of the sea imposes.

The view and atmosphere on the outside deck are just wonderful at Trattoria Al Faro. The deck overlooks the Gulf of Trieste. We were staying virtually next door - we seemed to be the only non-locals here. The Bronzino (sea bass) and the sardines appetizer were both excellent. Staff were very friendly (although a bit short-handed that night) and we had a lovely evening.

Trattoria Al Faro
We had an excellent experience here made better by a wonderful, competent and friendly waiter, Graziano. We had perfect weather that allowed us to lunch on the terrace where we enjoyed a good view of Golfo di Trieste. Located at the entrance to Faro della Vittoria and along Barcola beaches, parking can be a problem although there are a few dedicated spaces directly in front of the trattoria. My husband especially appreciated the thoughtfully selected “easy listening” music played in the trattoria unlike the often jarring, loud pop music played (not to mention the glaring birght lights) in some Italian restaurants. Their music selection was a good fit for the tasty food and quintessentially Italian terrace dining experience.
We had two green salads, split the main course, one liter of house white wine, one liter of bottled water, shared a dessert – all for E49. We ate and drank well and enjoyed a lovely view over a long, lazy lunch. I recommend this place.
