We ate dinner at da Mario on the advice of our hostess, Martina, at Il Roncal where we stayed in Cividale di Friuli. The restaurant is located in the small village of Prepotto which is a few kilometers southeast of Cividale di Friuli. Instead of ordering off a menu, we let Mario order for us. We started with three small plates in sequence: gnocchi with a light herb sauce, a cheese- filled ravioli and a barley dish with bits of sausage. All three were excellent. We followed with a regional roasted pork rib dish accompanied by roasted potatoes and fennel which we shared. We were too full to order dessert. The entire meal for two including a bottle of the regional red wine, a beer, bread and a carafe of sparkling mineral water came to about $65. You won't be disappointed!
