Happy-hour time! You have ended up in Pordenone on a beautiful Saturday afternoon and now your tummy’s rumbling? Ready to discover 5 Pordenone must-do-aperitifs? Here you find several handy tips to choose the best places in town to have a top-notch glass of wine with some finger food, exclusively based on local products. Here we go!
- Bar Ariston. A recently-discovered bar, hidden in an arcade located along Corso Garibaldi, in the very heart of Pordenone pedestrian area. Don’t be misled by the appearance of this small bar: go to the counter and let the owner give you some tips about the right combination between wines and “crostini”. There’s something to suit everybody’s fancy! Good wines from local wineries matched with wonderful crostini: with spinach and gorgonzola cheese, with fiocco di Sauris and mozzarella, with salame and formadi frant….once you try one crostino, you will definitely go seconds!
- Tramai. This tiny wine-bar embodies the perfect Friulian osteria, characterized by wood furniture, old men reading newspapers while drinking an excellent “taglio” (glass of wine), a couple of tables and stools, some Friulian proverbs about alcohol on the walls. What should you choose at Tramai? Crostino with baccalà and crostino with creamy gorgonzola, combined with house wines…just go for them, you won’t regret your choice!
- Al Buso. This is the perfect place to have an aperitif outdoor, during a warm summer afternoon. With its small tables located in a lovely, peaceful small square, it represents the ideal spot where to take a break after a shopping tour in the city center. The wine list is rich and accurate, and the selection of crostini changes every day, according to the owners’ tastes. My personal tip? Choose a roast-beef and mustard crostino, if you find it!
- Enoteca alle Mura. If you look for something original, this is definitely your must choice. The bartender is a nice, expert girl that nurtures a deep passion for local wineries, able to describe you every single wine she proposes in details. Offers and matches between wine and finger food change periodically, and they never are ordinary or common. Just let her depict you the nuances of her best wines and choose the one that inspires you the most!
- Portorico. My final proposal is one of the historical bars of Pordenone, located in the refined atmosphere of Corso Vittorio Emanuele, full of elegant palazzi and arcades. On a spring or summer saturday afternoon, choose the terrace and observe the lively passengers walking along the corso, and order a glass spritz aperol with a tramezzino (the bar offers a wide selection of excellent tramezzini….I personally would suggest the one with truffle sauce and Sauris culatello, a real treat!). Cocktails are excellent as well.
So what are you waiting for? Enjoy the happy-hour in Pordenone!This entry was posted in Friuli-Venezia Giulia
