Osteria da Marino

Wine Bar in Trieste

If you can't make it to the Carso wine region, get the owner here to ply you with indigenous grape varieties (the Vitovska selection is encyclopedic). Or just settle in with a Franciacorte sparkling or a Tuscan red and wait for the little meatballs to appear. It also has a menu of good local dishes that can be eaten out the back or at the bar.
