La Pignata is a small restaurant in a former home in the village of Poffbro where my grandparents lived before they came to America. You should call to make a reservation before going to avoid disappointment. The owner, Michele, prepares the food and our dinners...were delicious. Unfortunately, Michele does not speak English, so we were not able to communicate with him; however the man who waited on us was able to translate items on the menu we were not familiar with (such as rabbit). My husband had Tagliatelli pasta with porcini mushrooms and i had polenta with sausage and pork on a rib with a light brown sauce. Both were delicious. We ate inside the small dining area which holds about 20 people; however there is a larger dining area on a deck outside overlooking a very picturesque mountain view. The price of the meals was very reasonable. I highly recommend this charming restaurant and walking through the village will give you some wonderful opportunities for some fantastic pictures.More

Firstly it's in a superb location overlooking the valley. Although it's only a limited menu, the food was well cooked and tasty. The meals were influenced by the regional cuisine.The staff were friendly and helpful and the wines were good. If you have the chance...have a meal here,take it as it's a special experience.More

While the menu is small, it offers delicious examples of local flavors. I had the ribs of lamb and they were the best lamb I have ever tasted...perfectly cooked!!! The staff were warm and welcoming and the ambiance is a delight...like a nice, cozy hug.

Limited but authentic menu in this small restaurant set in a former private home in the beautiful village of Poffabro. Chef/owner Michele was born into the business and is an excellent host.

A hidden gem in the mountains of Friuli, this restaurant has a fine menu with local flavours. Very much worth the visit.

Leaving from Maniago for Poffabro is a mountain adventure, but worth the drive. Take the first parking (P) spot you find in the village, there are few. It is a short walk through the ancient village square and follow the signs posted for the Trattoria...di Pignata. What a beautiful setting and the view-wow! Food was great, had coniglio with a tasty sauce, ravioli with a zucchini cream sauce. Service was excellent with so few staff. Will grow as they are discovered !More
