Tucked away in an alleyway but actually quite easy to find if you go from Piazza dell'Unita, this was one of few restaurants open on a Monday night in January. It was the dearest of our three restaurant visits in Trieste but was the best and not bad value for such an excellent meal. After a spritz to whet the... More

The restaurant is located just a few steps from the Piazza d' Unita, on the narrow street surrounded by the charming old buildings. In addition to indoor seating ,restaurant has a pleasant outdoor setting consisting of a row of tables along the building. The menu appeared limited and boring, however, after daily specials and server explanations ...it was more appealing,... More

We ate here two times in a few days and both times we had a fantastic food experience! Every time the food was delicious and the service excellent! The staff was really friendly and helpful. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone! If we go back to Trieste we would certainly eat here again!

We stumbled upon this place on the last night in Trieste and it was great to have such a wonderful meal to remind us of the city. The service was also good and the staff were knowledgeable about the food and wine

We searched out the best restaurants in Trieste from multiple sources. This one was high on Trip Advisor list. We had our best meal here in all of Trieste. We liked the location, the service, and most of all the food. We shared several dishes, including a bottle of Pinot Bianco wine, sea bass entree, truffled homemade tagliatelle pasta, baby... More

I was extremely happy with the location, the service, the ambiance and the quality of this restaurant. The only thing that was a bit surprising was the size of the portions. A main fish dish had ~100gr of fish with very few side dishes next to it. However, everything tasted so well. I have to say that it is an... More

This is a wonderful restaurant that totally lives up to its reputation. Located on a quiet little street only a few minutes from the Piazza Dell 'Unita d'Italia. The cuisine is wonderful mix of Italian and Austrian that is reminiscent of the Period of Austria's former administration of the city. Many of the dishes are found under the heading "Memories...

Definitely would recommend for a nice dinner in Trieste. We had both pastas and fresh fish. Both were delicious. Very well seasoned and cooked perfectly. Wine selection had a nice variety. After we had paid the bill - the server brought us a bottle of homemade limoncello. We sat and enjoyed the very strong treat - a nice ending to... More

Chimera is a quaint restaurant that sits on one of the side streets in the old town of Trieste. We were staying at the Savoy and it was about a 5 minute walk from there. They have several tables outside and we were lucky enough to snag one on a beautiful evening in Trieste. We ordered the Ox (waiter called... More

Not very cheap of course but very good cuisine and good service. Sitting outside or inside - you are welcome, well treated and will enjoy a very good meal and a broad variety of wines.
