Don't be fooled by the small entrance in a side street. We stumbled upon this restaurant and it was a marvelous surprise! This restaurant serves one of the best crudités fish antipasto in Trieste. Inventive combination of cream and oils to accompany the fish. The decor of the restaurant is charming and modern, with plenty of room for some privacy.... More

We recently had a most unpleasant dining experience at La Bottega di Trimalcione. Trieste was in the midsts of a heatwave with daytime temperatures reaching 36 C. My wife and I made a reservation at Trimalcione for dinner at 8 p.m. We arrived and were warmly welcomed and seated in a covered, outdoor courtyard. I noted that we were the... More

We were the only people here on a Monday evening. Despite this it was a great and memorable meal of a antipasta and two primo. Very much fish focused and well presented and cooked. We loved it and found our hosts really friendly and doing everything they could to make the meal enjoyable. We would certainly go again.

I visited the restaurant with my husband twice in January 2015. He does not normally choose fish dishes, in fact I can't remember the last time he had one before dining in this restaurant. We both found everything about the place, exceptional. Both the owner and the charming waitress were extremely helpful and the food wonderful. So much so that... More
