Have eaten here quite a few times and we are yet to be disappointed. The food has the flavors and pure essence of the local area along with a fabulous wine selection to compliment the dishes - perfection! This is a very traditional restaurant with a wonderful charm. Located right in Cormons in the Friuli area.

We treated ourselves to an outstanding lunch at Al Giardinetto for our anniversary and had a fantastic meal. The service and the wine list are exceptional. We are familiar with the cuisine in this area and this is an excellent example of what this region has to offer. Don't miss it.

No missteps on this menu or their... More

Booked for a lunch with friends, we were inspired by the chef regarding the dishes and his brother regarding the pairings of wines. Final judgment: a perfect combination! Fully satisfied we will definitely return!
