We stopped in here as they were closing but we had 3 hungry children and they agreed to seat us and we are so glad they did!!! They were so sweet to our children and explained the different types of pasta to us. We all loved our pasta dishes, one of our best meals since we moved to Italy 6... More

The restaurant is a small jewel in the center of Udine. The owner and cook follows the client through the interesting choices, instantly made with fresh goods and the typical Sardinian flavor. Make sure you return to taste the different dishes and wines from the Sardinian tradition.

Excellent cook and staff. Everyone was so helpful including other customers sitting nearby. This is a must visit even if you travel some distance in getting there.

We stayed one day in Udine on our way to vacation in Tuscany. We found this fine little restaurant a few streets away from the main square. We were served a mix of different dishes to get a good introduction to the Sardinian kitchen that is the speciality of the restaurant. The service was excellent and we had very useful... More

We found this place somehow by chance, inspired by the many Sardinia dishes written down in the welcome board. And what a surprise! The hosts are friendly and fun, everything was fresh and perfectly prepared, with a menu that proposes quite a lot of starters and first courses of fresh pasta, mostly based on Sardinian cheeses (both delicate like the...

Small, very friendly restaurant, proudly serving Sardinian food. Excellent fish, we loved the swordfish carpaccio and tuna tartare. Interesting wines too. Still don't take credit cards but there is a cash machine immediately outside.

I recently had dinner at the Nicchia in charming Udine. Before I get into the food, I need to be clear about something with the owners: your client base includes a lot of non-Italians, many of whom are on vacation. This is the 21st century. You MUST have a working POS Credit Card machine. The fact that you don't means... More

Was travelling with some friends around Italy (i love this country!!) and in Udine the hotel receptionist offered this restaurant, even though it was not local food, we tried it because of the short waking distance from our hotel. The food was great! The service very friendly, even though the waiter did not speak good English but the effort was... More
