Excellent food

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

From the moment we arrived, you can just feel the warming welcome of their lovely staff. All dishes were perfectly prepared and designed on the plate. Actually each dish was made like going for a foto-shooting. The taste was splendid. My vegetarian friend was impresed with selection of their food too. Chef's approach impressed me so much.Selection of wine was... More

The food was very good but expensive. Not recommended for families, specially not with many kids, perfect for a business dinner though.

Delicious italian restaurant in Trieste, on a small pedestrian street, just 100 yards from seafront. Good local & regional fare, with a large choice of fish and plenty of truffle dishes, thanks to proximity to Istria. Rather on the sophisticated end, with the chef focusing in quality rather than quantity. Beautiful wine list, with all of great stuff from Colio... More
