The location of the restaurant is lovely and the atmosphere seems nice, relaxed and cosy. The antipasto plate was promising, but everything else after that was just average. The biggest disappointment was the service. Our waiter behaved like he couldn't care less of his customers, he just wanted to go home.

We ate dinner here one nand were the first to sit outside "in the garden," on a warm but windy night. Food was good- the pasta with sausage and pecorino was wonderful, the calamari fritti well done, the tagliata de manzo tasty (covered with rock salt-not the usual preparation but very good) The restaurant filled up quickly after we sat,...

After more than 45 minutes of waiting and complaining about it, or cold starters finally arrived and they were simply mediocre. We ate a lot of marinated sardines and octopus salads in our past and these were pretty close to the bottom of that list. Due to limited time we had in Trieste, we had to cancel the rest of... More

Wonderful place with ambience and delicious pasta - lots of flavour. The side dish of spinach was actually delicious although simply done. Drinks were quite inexpensive. Service was friendly even though our Italian is atrocious. A menu in English is available, but not necessary - just choose anything - it's all good!

I really enjoyed my dinner with friends here during a short stay in Trieste. My dish was very good but from the comments of my friends probably the goulash was the best choice. The place is quite small but there is a nice atmosphere and is very central. Prices are honest

We stumbled on Al Pete's while spending a half day wandering around Trieste. Loved the food and the atmosphere. Would highly recommend, easy walk from the main plaza but you feel a million miles away.

We (my wife and me) went there Sunday evening (November 2nd); Seemed quite nice, though only very few people. For us the music was too loud, we asked it to be turned lower (which was done). To make it short: A full glass of red wine was spilled over my trousers by the waitress. This can happen, no doubt. But... More
