Al Bagatto was recommended in the NY Times 36 Hours in Triests. Maybe that was the problem. The tasting menu was efficiently served but too many of the courses were prepared ahead and were less about the food experience than about convenience. That said the...More

Not to miss in Trieste. Excellent menu for 60 euro. Plus matching wines for 20 euro. Not the cheapest but worth every penny. Thanks for a great evening.

For almost 50 years now, the Al Bagatto Restaurant has been providing this wonderful city a place to try the best fresh fish around. This has sometimes meant offering an alternative all-meat menu or even closing the restaurant when the quality fish that you know us for, and which distinguishes us, was not available.
