My wife and I shared the saffron risotto which was superb. The restaurant is known for seafood but we both had the rack of lamb. Delicious! One of the memorable meals on this trip to Italy.

My friend and I were in Trieste for a weekend and asked where was good to eat, 90% of locals recommended this gem. We arrived and were greeted warmly by the staff. We decided to go all out and have the fish taster menu, which involved 8 courses and a variety of wines to accompany each course. I can honestly... More

Lovely atmosphere, warm welcome, charming service. Tucked away in a back alley surrounded by antique shops, busy but an island of calm. The famous appetizer of chopped raw fish is everything it is cracked up to be, and a very substantial starter. The spaghettini with shrimp was very good (though there is better in town ) and the turbot very... More

I had diner here with a group of 17 people. We had 7 courses, all looking very nice, and delicious. I don't know about the price because the group leader paid; but I would say that it is worth a try!

After having very mediocre food at Caffe San Marco and poor food at Buffet Marascutti yesterday, I was happy to have eaten at Chimera di Bacco tonight. Contrary to what some reviews said, I found the interior dominated by pastel lavender (walls, curtains, candle holders, candles and some furniture) a bit too cosy for my taste. The complimentary mis-en-bouche was... More

I recently had dinner at Chimera after reading the positive reviews here on TripAdvisor. I arrived as a solo diner without a reservation at approximately 7:45 pm. At that early hour, the restaurant was mostly empty; however it was filled to capacity by the end of my meal. I was fortunate to find a table near the front entrance door.... More

Chef's approach impressed me so much.Selection of wine was... More
