“good fish restaurant in mariano del friuli”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2010

is the kind of restaurant you want to visit again.
when you first sit at your table, a waiter comes with a glass of something (yesterday it was Sangria) and gives you the full wine list (i do not comment here because i do not use to drink alchohol); when you first sit at your table you will certainly find a break basket full of "Pane Carasau" a typical Sardinian bread and some pieces of normal bread. The "Pane Carasau" goes perfectly along with the fish food.

Then the owner Gianni comes along and ask you what you want for dinner; you can choose between a series of starters, some pasta and fish of the day.

we had the series of starters and the food was amazing!!
you can taste shrimps, lobster and so on...

then after the starters we finished with "Monte Bianco", the sweet. Very good, certainly home made.

the owner continuosly goes around the dining room (if the weather is good you can also dine outside) and eventually sits in your table to talk to you.

I want to reccomend this restaurant to anyone having a special occasion to cheer, a special guest or just wants to eat probably in one of the best fish restaurant in Friuli Venezia Giulia.

In 2 we spent 120,5€ and we had:
- 2 bottles of water
- series of appetizer
- 1 coffe
- 1 Monte Bianco Cake

“The best for raw fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2009

I have to tell you that I'm a raw fish's lover, so if you find yourself in Friuli this is the place to go. I live in Montecarlo and I have been going to this restaurant since 2001, at least three time a year. Every time I go I find a new dish, a great new experience. The Chef (and owner) Gianni is from Sardinia and most of the time he will come to the table to take the order. It is my suggestion to let him guide ou in this experience. It is a must to start with the entries, it is about 10 different dish of raw fish, than he will suggest you a dish of Spaghetti (small portion) or the catch of the day (when is available grilled red tuna is unbelievable, just cooked on the outside). He has a vey good selection of local wines, as you know this is the area of "Collio" where the taste of the white wines is an adventure of flavors. You will find this restaurant on the road bettween Monfalcone and Udine, Mariano del Friuli in a small town all along the main road. This town is kown only because give birth to Dino Zoff, very famous goalkeeper of the Juventus and Italy soccer team.
Please bare in mind that this is the only restaurant I ever reccomended on the web.
I hope you will have a wonderful experience, Rinaldo
