Excellent location above the Portopiccolo Bay, renovated rooms, there are a lot to do in facilities and maintenance, excellent breakfast, historical dining room, suitable only for one night, in restaurant they only have fish menu, we must go to other place.

Room tip: 1 etage is better

My partner and I stopped off here by chance after looking at late recommendations for the area on Google. The restaurant is off a main road and easily accessible. We had a seafood pasta dish - “scogliata picante” - and it was seriously one of the best meals we’ve ever had .... hugely generous in portions and every bite delicious. Fantastic wine and perfect atmosphere. We paid €67 for two large glasses of wine and this pasta that was large enough for four. Beautiful meal and highly recommended. The restaurant has been in the same family for five generations ... here’s hoping the young waiter can follow in his father’s and grandfathers’ footsteps.

I'm glad I hadn't read the negative reviews before having dinner at Gaudemus because, had I done so, I would have missed a gastronomic high point. The tasting menu was amazing---every dish was perfection and testified that we were in the hands of a truly talented chef. We had the kind of superb dining experience you remember for a long time. Wish we still lived in Duino so we could make Gaudemus a regular haunt.

This was our first night in Sistiana and we chose Locanda Gaudemous.The shef suggested we tried their tasting menu.We asked not to have any marinated food before we agreed to the suggested menu.Regrettably we were served 2 cold starters which were nothing special a cod mouse and smoked salmon which is not what we were expecting from a tasting menue .After that we asked the waiter the third course to be a hot dish but we were served a marinated cold octopus dish.After we complained to the shef who is the owner he was very rude and very unhelpful.He throw the menue on the table and told us to chose our main courses if we are not happy but they were just as poor.The servise was terrible, no one paid any attention at us after the complain.We ended up paing 93 euros for this terreble experience. We didn't even get an apology .We come from London and we have an extensive experience of different variety of food and this was one of the worst food we ever tasted.Please do not waste your time and money to go there.

I think this place deserves an English review so it can be found by more people.
We went here on the 29th of June for my wife's birthday together with another family.

The chef is proud of his food and if you would prefer the "normal" known Italian food (tourist) then you should not go here as he will more or less refuse your order - he is proud and he wants to provide true Italian food to you. I suggest you accept!

As we could not really decide what to go for we suggested he decide for us so he came with suggested starters and main course and it was a faboulous experience at a very modest price considered the very high quality. It was surely one of the best experiences in food during 2015.

So, if you are prepared to take a step back and get a true food experience - go here, be friendly and nice and ask for his suggestions and then just enjoy! And yes, his suggestions on wine were all excellent as well.

So, to sum it up: absolutely great place IF you are open-minded and can accept to skip the pizza or carbonara (so some tourist might want to stay away) at an excellent pricerange
