This is outside the tourist center, no particularly attractive part. Every day handwritten menu in Italian only (but the Boss speaks English as well), everything fresh and all the people regular Italians. It's a real Italian cookshop/bistro. Lovely place with gorgeous food, cheap prices. Lunch time full. Being a guest here is a honor. In the evening closed.

I'm in love with their sandwiches! I had a fried zucchini, boiled ham, cran (horseradish) and mustard. Cheap and cheerful and perfect for a quick lunch. If you're not confident with Italian speaking I'm sure if you ask for something typical trieste they will give you something really tasty!

For non Italian speaking person it can be hard to figuring out how it works. Taste is quite original Triestino. Fast food for a quick lunch would be faster

Trieste is known for its Buffet Style dinners and this I think is one of the best, though you would not be able to tell that from its appearance which is very humble. The restaurant is very small so "when" you get there matters. The first time we went there it was the end of the height of the lunch... More
