We stayed one day in Udine on our way to vacation in Tuscany. We found this fine little restaurant a few streets away from the main square. We were served a mix of different dishes to get a good introduction to the Sardinian kitchen that is the speciality of the restaurant. The service was excellent and we had very useful... More

We found this place somehow by chance, inspired by the many Sardinia dishes written down in the welcome board. And what a surprise!

Small, very friendly restaurant, proudly serving Sardinian food. Excellent fish, we loved the swordfish carpaccio and tuna tartare. Interesting wines too. Still don't take credit cards but there is a cash machine immediately outside.

Was travelling with some friends around Italy (i love this country!!) and in Udine the hotel receptionist offered this restaurant, even though it was not local food, we tried it because of the short waking distance from our hotel. The food was great! The service very friendly, even though the waiter did not speak good English but the effort was... More
