We were here for a family lunch yesterday. 3 generations, 7 people. They had prepared a beautiful table for us overlooking the Gulf of Trieste. There were great choices of dishes, the waiter was very knowledgeable and personable. The food was outstanding - prices are more than fair!! Can't wait to come back!

The place has a stunning view over the Gulf of Trieste, it is not so big in the inside, although the windows allow for a great view outside in the cold season too. We were lucky, and enjoyed an amazing sunny warm mid-day lunch on the fist day of the year. During the call for the booking I could already... More

On the outside this is a shady place on the old road Trieste - Monfalcone (btw, you have to watch out for you children, if you are traveling with them, as this busy road is right beside the restaurant). Once passed the entrance there is a beautiful view of the Gulf of Trieste and the people are very nice and... More

Simple location close to road. On our bill were things we did not eat, but certainly not in fraudulent intention.

The fish is good, and so is the wine; service and prices are in line. The real reason you go to the Tenda Rossa (the red tent, which is what it probably was when they started after the war) is the view on the sea and the opportunity to sit on the terrace. The restaurant is located along the main... More

This was one of the best restaurants we ate at travelling around Europe and the view was amazing. If you are heading to the castle make sure you stop in for some lunch.

We arrived at around 3 o clock (am) for lunch, which I know is pretty late in Italy... The waitress told us, that is was too late, they can serve us only lasagna or fish. We asked about pasta, she said the water is already turned off. ??? We sat down and she started to tell us what we can... More
