For fifty years Al Ferarùt has continued to impress travellers and gourmet pilgrims that gravitate towards Rivignano, between Udine and Venice. It was 1965 when Carla and Guerrino Tonizzo changed the name from Il Cacciatore (The Hunter), and since then it has acquired a real homely feel, crowned by the succulent grilled dishes prepared in the open fireplace behind a glass screen. In the basement, next to the impressive wine cellar, there’s a luxurious private room with a monumental, eighteenth century walnut table in the middle, exposed brickwork and many display cases: here you can discover spirits and liqueurs from all over the world. This is the very heart of the restaurant, where you can find maximum relaxation. Alberto Tonizzo in the kitchen and his wife Anamaria Hatcau in the dining room pamper their guests with the very best of Friulian spirit, displayed through their ingredients and creativity. You only need to add the chef’s passion for river fishing and wild herbs, and the picture is complete. “I have always looked at the world through the eyes of a child… To enjoy a dish you have to understand it, to understand or discover the intentions and reasons that led to its existence,” says Alberto with emotion.
