My friends and I have dinner at Le Cucagne and it was good and a lot of food in 5 or 6 sequences!
Special is because you have meni what is cooked that day, or what is caught that day!!
It was a little situation with reservations but no big problem!

I recently had a lengthy, leisurely lunch at Le Cucagne Agriturismo, located in the hills of Faedis. The restaurant isn't easy to find and you must traverse a small stretch of dirt road before arriving. From the exterior, Le Cucagne looks to be a farm house nestled among the local vineyards. The interior is warmly decorated with a country/rustic motif. Terracotta floors and an inviting fireplace provided atmosphere and seating was spacious and plentiful. Tables were topped with paper tablecloths and napkins and service ware (plates, utensils, glasses) was what you would expect at an agriturismo. A TripAdvisor sign was prominently posted at the entrance. Outdoor dining on a terrace is available for warm weather days.

Le Cucagne features typical Friulano cuisine, all prepared in a home-cooked manner. Service is family-style in that the waitresses walk around with serving platters and plate dishes that way. Service was very friendly, accommodating and attentive. The portions were very generous and if you are up for more food, seconds were available. An endless flow of bottled Refosco red wine also topped the tables.

My antipasto starter was comprised of an assorted plate of cured meats (prosciutto, salami, pancetta), a creamy mushroom mousse, and polenta chips. This was followed by three types of dishes for the pasta course; a spinach filled crepe topped with Bechamel sauce; Risotto with Sausage and Apples and Gnocchi made with pumpkin. All were very tasty.
For an entree, I had the rolled pork escallop, filled with speck (cured smoked meat) and radicchio, topped with a wine-based gravy and accompanied with a hearty portion of polenta. I found the meat to be a little overcooked and tough to chew, though it had a nice flavor.

As I was a guest, I don't know how the prices were. Normally, agriturismo dining is very reasonable. If you are looking for a relaxed day in the countryside, Le Cucagne might be just the right place.
