We were traveling on the expressway and as lunch time approached, decided to take the next exit and locate a restaurant. Wow, did we make the right choice!

As we entered the parking area, we saw the most beautiful trout pond with crystal clear water. There were many cars in the lot and we were somewhat apprehensive about the wait for a table.

However, as we entered, we were immediately taken to a nearby table and very soon our order was taken. We ordered a pasta dish and a steak dish. Both were delicious and were brought out in a timely manner.

We had only planned for lunch but decided to order coffee and dessert and had a lovely time.

Afterwards, we admired the beautiful swans that grace the pond.

We are very glad we found this restaurant and could not have hoped for anything better.

A very very good restaurant! Everything was excellent - the ambient, food, service and finally the owner. He offered us an extra round on house, bringing the whole bottle of grappa. Prices are very modest compared to quality, it is worth every cent. Definitely will be going there again, but this time for lunch - must be very beautiful to sit outside and enjoy the surroundings!
Thanks you guys for the great work you are doing!

Finding the restaurant in the dark with a motorway exit closed was not easy but the effort was really worthwhile. From the lovely risotto starter to the glass of grappa at the end the meal was superb in both quality and presentation. Even the house wine was commendable. Our waitress was brilliant and we enjoyed chatting in a fun mix of German, Italian and English. A great evening and highly recommended (but do book in advance it is realĺy popular).

We have passed the signs of Ristorante Rio Argento scores of times over the years when enjoying holidays in Carinthia. This time we decided to have lunch at last at this restaurant. What a disappointment! It was busy in the garden because itwas glorious weather. Luckily, a table for two was just vacated and was offered to us. When waiting paitienly for the table to be cleared, this table wad suddenly, without explanation offered to an eldery couple who had enteted the restaurant one or two minutes behind us. There was a vague promise from the staff to bring another table outside, but we were clearly not welcome. Luckily, the Friuli has many hospitable, honest restaurants, where you are welcome and enjoy th our food. We repaired to a pizzeria nearby and had a splendid luch there.

Al “Ristorante Rio Argento” di Ugovizza tutti i clienti sono i benvenuti!
Sig. Hendrik, siete arrivati in una bella giornata di sole e quindi il ristorante era quasi pieno. All’esterno era libero solo un tavolo già prenotato da due persone che sono arrivate assieme a voi e che giustamente sono state fatte accomodare.
Il personale di servizio, sentite le vostre lamentele e nonostante il tanto lavoro, pur di accontentarvi, ha proposto la possibilità di portare fuori un altro tavolo. Molto probabilmente c’è stata un’incomprensione e nonostante la nostra disponibilità a trovare una soluzione a vostro favore siete andati via contrariati.
E’ vero. Nel Friuli ci sono molti ristoranti onesti e ospitali. E tra quelli, ne abbiamo la sicurezza e la convinzione, ci siamo anche noi, malgrado lei la pensi in modo diverso.
Ci auguriamo di potervi rivedere presto nel nostro ristorante.
Sandro Zanazzi e tutto il personale.
