This is really something special what you can eat in Trieste. We were two persons, eating 'piatto misto for two'. We were served immediately and received a variety of pork meet which all tasted very good. I recommend to everyone who would like to taste original trieste food, coming from Slovenian tradition.

If you need a fast lunch in the city center and you want something of very typical you must come here: very familiar ambient, good quality of food (especially ham and boiled meat), beer and wine and low price.

This place is one of my favorites! I love the sauerkraut and pork. I try to make it to this restaurant every time I'm in Trieste. It never fails to impress.

Our cruise ship stopped in Trieste. My husband and I wandered around on our own and we stumbled upon this little restaurant. It was intriguing because food in that area is a mix of Italian and Eastern European, similar to Alsace Lorraine mixing French and German. It's close to the main piazza and only a short walk from the cruise... More

The space of this buffet it is very small, and not clean. Personnel which are serving at tables are completely unprofessional and they did not take about customers. The food is great but the portion are very small. We ordered a 4 person grilled meat mix but the quantity of food was for a two person maximum. On wine, the... More

They serve pork in a range of ways that seems unending. and each dish seems better than the last. all are based on a special cooking in broth and follow a centuries old Austro-Hungarian tradition. My advice is to go with the mixed platter. a... More

Buffets of Trieste are special and da Pepi does not disappoint. Simple and straightforward and lots of pork. It is good and filling and fun. Especially at lunch time with the place bustling with people and everyone having a good pranzo. By the way, if you are in a hurry a quick pannino of ham or pork shoulder is a... More

Service was awful. I was alone and clearly they are not interested to have solo clients when they can rip off two clients instead. Food was not exceptional. It is quite cheap but way too expensive for the quality they serve. Service was awful. I had to ask several times for the menu, for the drinks, no explanation, but the... More

Good and pleasant restaruant. If you don't know the local special meal, and would like to try it, here it's worth to order one dish (on the plate different type of meat) for more persons. Of course, you must not miss drinking some beer or local wine and the (pork) meat-meal will be eaten rapidly :D Taste of food are... More
