“Don't Miss This! Wonder-Full!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Farm fresh delectable food at reasonable prices. They raise their own poultry and other meats, fruit and vegetables. They create wonderfully tasty and fragrant dishes. It makes me hungry to remember it. It's a little hard to find but it's delightful, beautiful place with welcoming hosts and amazing food.

“Dine here and complete a fantastic in Friuli”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

We spent a lovely morning in Cividale at the Archeological Museum and the Lombard Chapel (which is a UNESCO Heritage site). Both excellent. At lunchtime we headed towards San Daniele del Friuli and stopped at Casale Cjanor. The decor is "country house" charming and there is a very inviting open fireplace on one side of the dining room. We also noticed another dining room which is probably used for functions. Smallgoods and wild meats such as goose and wild boar are specialities here. We ordered a small goods platter, polenta with venison, "pestat" which is a Friuli speciality awarded Slow Food Presidium, some other entrees, two desserts, coffee and Grappa, as well as mineral water and house wines. Our bill for 4 came to 110 Euro, which was not the cheapest, but certainly worth going to for the originality of the menu, the place (it is a real agriturismo just outside Fagagna) and great service with professional staff. On the way back to Veneto we noticed stork nests on top of very tall lightpoles. Then all of a sudden we saw that two of the nests were occupied by Mrs. Stork, and we stopped to take a few photos. That was the icing on the cake. We will definitely try and return here, maybe to stay overnight too.

“What you see is what you eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

We had a great time eating here. It's especially nice for families with younger children because, when they get bored with the adults and their adult conversation, as they are wont to do, they can run outside and watch the chickens and ducks and geese, listen to the frogs and crickets, watch for the storks that nest in the area, and just generally run about in the backyard of this establishment. We ate like kings and I got to run about outside with the kids (when I got bored with the adult conversation) and make recordings of the lovely soundscape outside. There happened to be a thunderstorm and some church bells in the distance, so I got to record them as well.

I recommend the lasagna, the gnocchi, and the cheese and polenta. Yum!
