Absolutely wonderful food at this little modern seafood restaurant. I highly recommend it. Decided to give it a try after visiting the Rivoltella museum today and it was definitely worth it. Charming decor also. Small and very nice restaurant in Trieste . Quite affordable also...for such excellent cuisine.More

One relatively small brightly decorated dining room, just behind the seafront. Imaginative presentation of fairly priced food.I ordered fish soup and pig's cheek and wondered if it would be enough. The waiter correctly reassured me that it would. My companion had the soup and a..."turban" of sea bass which she said was very good. We went on to eat 16 meals on this trip and this was the most imaginative and best presented food-wise.More

We found the place on a Saturday night we were a group of five people, the food was very good, the Prosecco also. We tryied a lot of dishes and they were all of very good quality. The atmosphere is very romantic, with high ceilings...and interest decorations. The service was a bit slow, but after all take your time and enjoy the evening! I would definitely recommend!More

This is a lovely place a little off the beaten track with a Venetian sensibility. We thought the 'nouveau Italian' food was excellent. Beautifully presented with subtle flavors and interesting preparations of all the dishes made this not the run-of-the-mill restaurant. We chatted with the...owner throughout our lunch because the place was fairly empty. He is an outgoing guy and enthusiastic about his place. The wines were excellent, even the house choice, though that is fairly typical for restaurants in Italy. The desserts were original and delicious. We went back about a week later and again, the food was heavenly. The name is a mouthful but the food is right up there with the best places in Trieste and Venice.More

We have been welcomed with care, especially taking into account that we had 2 celiac and 1 person allergic to fish. We enjoyed the wonderful food and the quiet but colourful atmosphere. Our Green Passes and those of the other clients were checked carefully.

We came with my wife to eat seafood as it was the specialty of the restaurant judging by their ads. Scallops, octopus, tuna and sea food platter - everything had no or resin taste, with a lot of flour breading, just a kind of fast...food warmed up in a microwave but priced 110 euro meanwhile. Never go there at any price!More

I've gone here for a lunch with my girlfriend. The restaurant is very cute, the staff is gentle but what is the most important the food is delicious. I am not very into a fish, but we got pasta with salmon and branzino for second...and it turned to be one of the best lunches I've ever had.More

Not far from Unità di Italia Square, this is a quite contemporary restaurant. We had a reservation so we'd been promptly seated. Friendly service. I really appreciated the owner answering my question about which fish was farm raised and which one caught. We ordered gnocchi...which weren't top knoch, fried sardines, seabass and the fish of the day (don't remember the name but was good). Dishes came a little bit slow and not at the same time, despite being only a table of 2. Maybe there's something to fix in the kitchen, but we had no rush. About desserts, chocolate cake was better than tiramisu. I think this place is quite new on the scene so, maybe, they need some more time to gear.More
