Love Udine, an unexpected gem in the north of Italy #wheretoeat


I felt in love with Udine, couple of weeks ago! This little gem which is in the very north east of Italy and i want to share with you all the best tips to eat and drink there!


If you felt in love with Venice you gonna find here many details that will remind you the most romantic city in the world; Udine, is a city with an unexpected mix of cultures and cuisine (and wine of course) that must be discovered. Surrounding this lovely city, Friuli vineyards stretch in all directions and we are a short drive away from San Daniele del Friuli, where, in my opinion, they make the best prosciutto (yes, better than prosciutto di Parma!).


As suggested by the locals, come to Piazza Matteotti (called “il salotto di Udine), the market square, full of adorable cafes to have breakfast or aperitivo, and from here, walk around to discover all the little lovely places to eat and drink, osterias and “enoteca” (wine bars) where you must try their Friulano Wine

Here below my super fav:

Pasticceria Beltrame: come here for breakfast (cappuccino is perfect) or an afternoon tea, they bake every day the best local “pasticcini”! Don’t forget the strudel 🙂


Cafè Ottelio: come here before lunch for a little prosecco or before dinner for the aperitivo while watching the life on the main square Piazza Matteotti


Da Michele: perfect place for an aperitivo with wine lovers while eating small delicious tapas



Enoteca Il Giardinetto: divine! It’s a sort of little for paradise for real wine lovers and experts, plus they have an amazing menu, with all the best local and traditional dishes,so authentically executed (must try: Strudel)! Really i just wanted to stay here, eating and drinking, from lunch to dinner



Hostaria alla Tavernetta: in the very center of Udine; great traditional food and super warm/welcoming interiors and atmosphere. MUST TRY: theirs special “frico”, be careful it can be addictive 🙂 PS: better during winter time




For Cheese Lovers go at Finati&Petrin on Via Valvason Erasmo! Amazing place


Eat well, travel often (come to Italy) and see the world with glittering eyes!
