While the presentation was decent, and the courses we fairly tasty, they were far from superb, let alone worthy of a 2-start Michelin rating. The pigeon was good, and the petite entrees were light and flavorful; however, not once did I feel a "wow" factor. The dried seaweed sprinkled on top is an old trick; but, unless you have top-notch... More

During our family trip in Italy we went for a very tasty and unusual dinner here! The degustation menù is excellent with the wine pairing they suggest, definitely worth trying it out! Even pure sea water on a plate tasted very nice. It was hard to get up at the end though, since we obviously ate too much, including cheese... More

A restaurant worthy of a michelin star - elegant, refined and well presented dishes, service is immaculate and the wines suggested with food are extraordinary. Michelin star well deserved.

We've been here twice and each time our experience was fantastic! Creative cuisine, incredible flavors, and kind staff (you never feel to be in a two stars restaurant except when you get the bill :)).

The restaurant is situated in Udine suburb, easy to be found. The interior design is mimimalist, yet cosy. I loved the small garden and the lounge - both perfect for an aperitivo. We decided not to have a degustation menu and chose from the menu: every course was a peace of art, between courses they served several bite-sized amuse-bouches .... More

We came there for a degustation menu, which was really unique. Service was top class and ambient wonderful. Food was pretty good (my girlfriend says amazing :) ), but I expected a bit more. Maybe I had too big expectations since it's a two star Michelin restaurant.

We went there for a big birthday celebration last night and the whole experience was wonderful. We don't normally gush about restaurants, Michelin Stars or no, but this was special and superlatives will be hard to avoid. First the food. It is immensely creative and accomplished. We had the first (of two) Tasting menus and also let them suggest local... More
