Fodor's Review

One of Udine's most trusted restaurants is steps from the Piazza Duomo. The Hostaria alla Tavernetta, open since 1954, has rustic fireside dining downstairs and smaller, more elegantly decorated rooms upstairs, where there's also a small terrace. On the menu are regional specialties such as orzotto (barley prepared like risotto), delicious cjalzòns (ravioli stuffed with ricotta, apples, raisins, and spices and topped with smoked ricotta, butter, and cinnamon), and perhaps the most tender suckling pig you have ever eaten. The restaurant offers a reasonably priced prix-fixe menu. The service is pleasant and attentive, and there's a fine selection of Friuli's celebrated wines and grappas.
