It was a nice restaurant, quite upmarket (good linen etc.) but the food was disappointing. A fish soup without much flavour and a sea bream which was also rather dull. Served with boiled potatoes and green salad. The wine was nice, but then it usually is in Italy. I would not wholeheartedly recommend it.

I have finally visited this place for a really great food experience. Great selection of raw and cooked starters, so good. We then tried their signature seafood risotto which was good, but we preferred the antipasti. Good wine list and service.

This was our first visit to Trieste and the area of Friuli. Even though we speak Italian and had lived in Italy for two years, the menu and the wine list were completely unfamiliar to us. So, it was time to ask for help. The chef, clad in sharp black outfit, approached our table and suggested his favorite wine (Castello... More

Really good fish. Warm mixed starter was the best fish appetizer I've ever eaten. Ideal for business dinners thanks to the separed room at the end of the restaurant.

Menarosti is one of the few traditional, high quality restaurants survived in the centre of Trieste. Family-run, lovely and traditional decor, the food is always outstanding. Regulars abund - alweays a good sign. Great place.

This authentic seafood trattoria is really cosy. Staff is both professional and friendly. Before dinner receive guests gratis little glass of prosecco and after dinner limoncello. It is very nice and pleasing. Food is absolutely fresh and delicious. Prices are reasonable. Absolute satisfaction.
