To those ones who are always eager to taste the local food on their city tours, I would recommend Al Monastero, a typical and historical restaurant in the centre of Cividale Del Friuli. I dropped by with a group of young people, who were visiting the region and all of us have enjoyed the food.
First of all, a special mention goes to the location and its interiors. Once a shelter to men returning from hunts and looking for a meal, now the venue has been restored in detail. Hence, the old medieval atmosphere is still present among the walls painted with hunting icons. The wooden ceilings complete the ambience, together with the old fireplace.
It is nice and very well presented. Even though the courses were just three (and sufficient), the winning dishes were the Risotto cooked with Ribolla Gialla – a typical Friulian white wine – with sprinkles of smoked ricotta;
