So pleased we stumbled across it!

We were delighted to find somewhere authentic and straightforward. Has a very interesting menu, with typical dishes from both Friuli and other northern regions. Very pleasant and welcoming owner, chef and waitress. A good selection of dishes (though no fish on the menu on the day we visited). In... read more

If you are around in the center of Udine you must stop and eat here! Very good food, and the owners and the girls that work here are very friendly! Enjoy

The welcome and the excellent straightforward cooking and wine make this a relaxing and enjoyable place to be. There are always plenty of other customers, so I guess I'm not the only person who feels this way. I was back in Udine after a year, and we ended up eating here at least 3 or 4 times over the week...

We found this Little gem on the day Italy is off, the 15. August. It was open, thats already laudable. The Service was very friendly. It had a geniune local atmosphere, enhanced by the frequent appearances the cook made to see if everything was ok. His speciality I had to try, Risotto with saffron and figs. An interesting combination ,however... More

Our dinner at Ex-Provenciali was without doubt the best meal we had during our three night stay in this beautiful town. We wished we had gone there again on our last evening! The interior is very inviting with a cozy atmosphere that make you want to linger. The varied menu features local ingredients including several vegetarian options. Our waitress Virginia... More

We stopped by this trattoria out of desperation as it was late in the day (about 2:10 PM) and most places were closing. Although it seemed like the kitchen was closing or was possibly closed, the staff was able to offer us a little food to fill out stomachs (although we didn't have full selection of the menu due to...

Another excellent experience at Ex Provinciali. Friendly owners, a wonderful octopus and orange salad, then a beautiful rabbit and polenta dish. All with the Tokay house white again. So far, this is the most dependable and best value for money restaurant I have found in my various visits to Udine.

We first experienced this Restaurant at lunch time and the seasonal minestrone and the veal liver were excellent. So, we decided to come back in the evening and we were welcomed like a frequenter. The Restaurant is run by a very friendly couple and in fact that our Italian is limited, the owner, who rules the kitchen, showed us some... More

This little restaurant on a sidestreet was an unexpected discovery, and a delight. They specialize in using a host of local ingredients and seafood. The starter of asparagus, pears, and the local tangy mountain cheese was very successful, the house wine (a local white Tokay that evening) completely acceptable, and the dish of pasta with clams, cherry tomatoes, and scampettini...
