Very typical place, in line with the Austro-Hungarian origins of Trieste. Excellent food, great quality, good beers, it's cheap and pet friendly.

There was a large selection of meat and I struggled to eat so much meat. It was more than I would usually eat in a week. All was very tasty buy I will not be rushing back soon Vegetables is extra but not needed if you like lost of meat. The location is close to shops and places of interest

It was a cold and miserable day in Trieste and by the time we arrived at Rudy's we were about frozen. The hearty food and stout beer was the perfect solution for warming us up. We spent most of the afternoon just enjoying the atmosphere, the great food and beer and staying warm. I would definitely go back.

Remarkably, lacks a proper ladies' room--throwback to 20th c Italia. But super Austro-Hungarian food. Try the bollito misto.

This buffet is one of the most known ones in Trieste for a couple of good reasons: it serves good local food and beers, and it's cheap. Always full of people, it's also good for a drink with friends, brunches and snacks. I went with my man and we ordered 2 medium size beers, 2 water bottles, pork shank with... More

Just what I needed. Friendly people and simple well made food with decent beer. Many locals in attendance. The TripAdvisor address seems to be incorrect, but I found it. Will return.

As its name says, it´s a buffet or birreria, don´t expect a high gastronomy here. It doesn´i disappoint - it has a pleasant atmosphere, looks to be very local and typical for Trieste. Maybe it´s overpriced for what it offers, but for some normal diner it´s fine.

Thank Michal B
