Good hidden restaurant in via Bonomea, a bit outside Trieste. If you want to eat good meat in Trieste, this is one of the best choices.

The restaurant is up hill of Trieste, a car is advisable to get there but nice and authentic ambience with a cute terrace to have dinner during a summer night. Concerning the food, we never tried Toscane food before and we wanted to tried. Hum... Kind of a fail for us... If you like red meat with nothing else than... More

A must for anyone wanting great Tuscan food in a quaint restaurant with terrific service. We visited the last night of our 2 week trip. We had an amazing bottle of Movia Cabernet Sauvignon. My son had the stuffed pork chop, my daughter had the pasta with wild boar sauce, and I the beef with mushroom sauce. All was amazing.... More

If you want to eat typical tuscan food in Trieste area, Al Toscano is THE place. It is located on a steep road connecting Opčine and Trst. The easiest way to get there is going down from Obelisco, against all signs. Tuscan antipasti with sheep cheese, salamini, papa al pomodoro, florentine steak, risotto with asparagi... everything is excellent. And again,... More

Great family run restaurant. Cozy and warm in winter with a nice garden in summer times. I have always eaten really well here. If you are a meat lover you should definetly give this restaurant a try. Tuscan style from appetizers to dessert. Fiorentine T-Bone chianina steak and fillet ( just to mention a few of my favorites) are all... More

I had lunch at this place that I only knew because I passed by very often. Really a pleasant surprise both from a culinary point of view (Tuscan especialities) that with regard to the courtesy of the staff and managers. We want to go back and recommend you to try this amazing restaurant.

Been to Al Toscano twice in seven days, first with my brother and later with my wife and daughters. Al Toscano is a must if you like your meat and you are in the Trieste region. Very good antipasti toscani, the ones made from boar were delicious. Of course, one will have to try their fiorantina, the Toscano T-bone steak,... More
