We've been here following an advice of our hotel. Come here before 8pm and you get free seated, after 9pm this place is full. The pasta is standard but the second courses are ridiculous. If you come on Friday you will get a day-special fish starter (unfortunately we've been here on not-friday). This place is recommendable for fish, pork and... More

with excellent food and wines. We had lunch there and it was just great. A lot of authentic dishes, where it is hard to choose.

We travel to Udine every year to visit some friends . A local shopkeeper recommended we try since we always seek local trattorias frequented by locals.the first experience is walking in the front door immediately being introduced to a group of locals sipping vino snacking on SAN DAn prosciutto. WE knew we were on to something good seeing the joy... More

I first discovered Trattoria Ai Frati in 2006 while I was visiting from America and it was love at first bite! I have come every year since and have never missed an opportunity to dine at this locally famous establishment. Ai Frati is located in an historic building on the banks of a little river and looks exactly the way... More

Nice spot in the old town, true italian. Food is just in the average, service is awful. Rude team of waiters and owners always under stress, which is reversed to clients. Getting the bill is an adventure: instead of waiting 1/2 hour at you table, clients stay in line at the cashier (privacy is totally excluded) to adventorously (totally confusion)... More

Very nice trattoria for a casual dinner out a short walk away from the busy squares. Good local wine and very very nice steak. Friendly and helpful staff. Would go back here myself, and recommend it to others

The waiter (blond lady) was extremely rude and unpolite towards us. Food was average food for average price. Sometimes the bad service gives you the worst humour and ruins a happy evening and dinner. Will never come back!

Have eaten here twice in the past month. Found it a very interesting place with a good, local menu. Obviously has a great and loyal local trade - always good sign. Don't come here expecting 'fain daining' and 100% slickness - but in my experience the food is great, the wines (locals on tap) delicious and it's obviously a place... More
