go for the sandwich!

Go for a sandwich, not for the plates! The deal is much more interesting! You get inside the sandwich exactly what you want, at a reasonable price. Mixed plates are much more expensive! quality is always good and service fast and kind!

The Austro-Hungarian Monarchy quotation cooked meals. Serving authentic, delicious beer. Very friendly owner. Excellent price / performance ratio. I ate here twice. Highly recommend.

Great hole-in-the-wall feel - huge cheap portions of mixed portions of pork (pork neck, sausages, sauerkraut, etc) - boiled and all delicious with sauerkraut. Nice waiters. Great busy atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit or two.

Very special place in downtown of Trieste in walking area. Concept made of simple menu (boiled pork meat served at place or "to take"). Was attracted with lot of local people who are taking food to home. Interesting to take good fast food & draft beer.

Don't miss out on this classic establishment for over a 120 years they have been serving smoked and pickled meats the old fashioned way. They now have outside tables. Real fancy! NOT. Classic and great. There may be cheaper places but this one resonates with history.

The temple of typical "caldaia", i.e., boiled pork meat (porcina, cotechino, lingua, pancetta...). The quality is good, the pleasure is diminished by the scant selection of drinks (just a standard pilsen beer and no wine list to speak of). While the price of sandwiches is still reasonable, the mixed platters are too expensive.

I asked my hotel reception what the most authentic moderately priced meal in town was! Pepi ticked all the boxes and also gave me an insight into the Habsburg influence through the region. Being Austrian I felt right at home with the selection and preparation of the mountain of pork that was served ! I asked for a aperol spritz... More
