Traditional cousin with a modern twist, great location, amazing staff. The food is wonderful, and it's the perfect place to spend a summer evening. More than one, actually. Absolutely recommended!

Great place for lunch. Their pastas in particular. Ask for advice to the owner. He will recommend the pasta of the day. The fish is from Trieste!

Sitting out overlooking the square, seafood pasta was delightful (lovely herb infused oil), fresh Fritto misto, refreshing apperitive. Initially forgotten by senior waiter, young waitress took over and was apologetic, quick and helpful. Inside is charming with historic photos of Trieste.

We enjoyed our dinner here as the food was very good. The staff was very welcoming. We ate outside under covering and when it started to drizzle, they happily adjusted the covering to keep everyone dry. We would go back.
