Treat yourself... Worth every cent ...

I was surprised when I saw that most people think that this place is expensive ... I'm not clear with what it can be compared when the bar is completely original ... Probably people are comparing this place with ordinary FAST FOOD and expect to get much of poor quality for very little money. If... read more

If in Trieste you just have to stop by at Pepi's. Usually we grab the tongue sandwich with horse radish and mustard to go. The place has a tradition of more than 100 years. All sorts of cooked meats cut in front of you straight from the boiling pot. You can also sit down and order, but I always just... More

Buffet Da Pepi- Nice serving of pork meat with their unique soft patate. The chef was kind enough to add 1 sausage to my liking which is not in their usual serving

We read of this pork buffet and decided to try it. The reviewer was right. The pork was amazing! We ordered a sampler platter for 18 euros and shared it between two of us. Some things to beware of...1. Bowl of bread ends brought to our table was not a part of the meal-4 euros. 2. Sauerkraut (which we understood... More

pork and sauerkraut is not food you usually associate with Italy but much of Trieste reminds us of its historical ties to the Austro-Hungarian empire, and this is one of those reminders. This lovely little restaurant is packed with locals at lunch time. Service is fast and efficient. You don't come here to linger, at least not at this busy... More

Just walk in, point at what you'd like to have, and before you grab your wallet they'll have it ready. Always fresh with great choice of condiments. Staff is very friendly, although they don't speak the word of English (no surprise I guess). A perfect snack stop in Trieste.

Very traditional restaurant (buffet) in Trieste. Things you usually don't find in a very authentic athmosphere. Usually I go there to get my boiled tongue in a sandwitch with a small beer.

We've been charged more for our drinks of what was written in the menu! The food was as expected. Tasty and typical. Personnel not particularly friendly, rude sometimes.
