Although it offers plenty of seafood, Trieste is better known for its simple, filling cuisine, similar to that of Slovenia: meaty broths, sausages and dumplings. Seafood dishes, such as scampi alla buzara and brodetto di pesce, are served in the same garlic, wine and tomato sauce you’ll find all down the Adriatic coast. Pork is popular, and gnocchi or polenta are the staple accompaniments. As a curiosity, you could head out to via di Servola, south past the port, to find Al Brittania (No.100, 040 830 708, closed Wed), an old baker’s, where bread is still made in the traditional way, as is the selection of hearty regional specialities.
