Italy is justly renowned for its delicious food. Buffet da Pepi is unique dining experience. 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

Gorgeous pork products with sauerkraut, everything pig that you can possibly imagine, what a treat and it has now been seriously updated with outdoor seating. This is a really good restaurant for anyone wanting to exoerience what Trieste is about.

You won’t be able to resist this place if you walk by and get a whiff of the tantalizing aromas of the smoked meats. I enjoyed lunch here and it was as if I had never had smoked ham before. This meat was so juicy & tasty it made “Honeybaked Hams” seem dry & salty. The freshly grated horseradish adds... More

Whenever I visit Trieste I try to come here, maybe just for a quick snack, like "rodoleto de prosciutto cotto con kren" (a few pieces of cooked hand-carved ham with horseradish) washed down with a small beer. The best boiled meat in town, in an informal setting, a traditional fast food. It is not cheap, but worth every penny.

Maybe i'm not the fine-art food type, but i was somewhat dissapointed. The sausage and ham were nice, but the bread was quite dry and the whine somewhat sour. If you like special pork-preparations, this is your place, but realize it is firstly a butchers' who also serves meals. It's definitely not the place to spend your night dining. For... More

We got a wonderful breakfast at Pepi's and it was amazing and very good tasting. Try the touristic menu suggested by the restaurant: you will taste a great food. And drink local beer, it's a must.
