Pier the Roof,
in the middle of the sea

15 November 2020

A fantastic location and excellent fish, in the heart of Trieste

Nestled between the Karst plateau and the Adriatic Sea, Trieste is a city of many souls, a land of encounters and cultures that have intertwined over time. The influences of Slovenia and Austria can be noted in the architecture as well as the gastronomy of the region.

Pier Restaurant was born in this fascinating and cosmopolitan atmosphere, right on the Venice pier.
Previously known as Marina San Giusto, it was then renovated and saw its furnishings and mood replaced by Walter Gustin, a manager of other successful venues in the city. Today it is a contemporary restaurant overlooking the sea with a splendid view of the San Giusto hill and the Miramare Castle.

Its modern style, traditional yet creative seafood cuisine, and the warm welcome make the experience unforgettable.

At the outdoor tables, you can sip your aperitif listening to the sea breeze, (literally) feeling the water with your toes.
The interior decoration is well thought through and echoes the sea and the emotions it arouses.
Yet it is the kitchen that brings these emotions to life by stimulating the five senses with its elegant proposals of reworked traditional flavors, such as savor.

This typical Trieste dish is made with local mackerel instead of anchovies. A starter made with this oily fish and white onion savor with toasted pine nut cream, caramelized red onion, and puffed rice wafer.
Even the busara ingredients have been reworked with cherry tomatoes giving it a sweeter taste. The most loved first-course dish is the delicate-flavored tagliatelle alla busara with scampi and canned yellow tomatoes in fried broth.
A romantic dinner at Pier cannot be complete without a vanilla ice cream, cocoa and hazelnut crumble, Sicilian Lisjak orange-flavored extra virgin olive oil.

Pier’s harmony is in every detail.

The dishes are accompanied by excellent wines from the local cellars and Millennium Water - Antica Fonte della Salute, a water that stands out for its purity and elegance, in line with the style of the restaurant.

People come here to savor emotions, in every sense.
