An easy trip just outside town, this landmark trattoria has been in business since 1865. Sit by the dining room fire or relax on a huge terrace and watch the sunset. This is Triestino food with a Slovene, Hungarian, and Austrian accent. Start with jota carsolina (a rich soup of cabbage, potatoes, and beans), and then you might order a roast joint of veal fragrant with rosmary and thyme, or a tender pork filet with red and yellow peppers, sausage, and sweet paprika.
Although the kitchen has central European roots, portions tend to be small, so if you're hungry, be sure to order both a first and second course, as well as an antipasto. To get here you can take bus 35 from Piazza Oberdan.
