Welcome to our home

130 years of tradition

Hic manebimus optime” says the sign on our door, a thought that expresses our joy in warmly welcoming those who come to visit us, hoping to share a delightful and quiet time at our table.

An important anniversary. 130 years of continuous activity, five generations, one place – our home – that has constantly transformed in order to be always updated, new and real.
The place, as a thread of life that unites history, people, stories.
In 1887 Umberto, our great-great-grandfather, a King’s guard, was given, as “severance pay”, the license for retail sales activity of tobacco and groceries. Then the onset of radio and television, it was the meeting place for countrymen to watch important sports events; later on it became the public pay phone office. From that point on, the slow, but consistent turning point, towards a more selected, sensitive and healthy cuisine, today, a culinary destination.
In a few lines, these are the 130 years of life of Agli Amici…
It’s only fair to celebrate with a series of events to show who we are.
Every month, for one evening, our home becomes a living room where we will meet personalities who have something important to share, an enlightening present, a testimonial power that inspires our daily life underlining the importance of the pursuit of Beauty, the need of sharing values and knowledge.
We have chosen the gift of one year of experiences linked to music, art, design, time, and the value of heritage. A time to reflect on our identity and on our future.
Who shall we be after 130 years of activity, starts from here.

Michela and Emanuele Scarello.

at the table “Agli Amici”

In this beautiful region of Italy, which is able to embrace both the sea and the mountains, the chef has fresh caught sea bass, scampi and Istrian sea urchins, algae from the Grado lagoon and the Gulf of Trieste, the red meat and Friulian pork, vegetables – in particular potatoes from Godia- and wild herbs collected in the meadows.

All ingredients that are at the base of our cuisine,
where the excess is scrapped and the essence is looked for.

Our guest’s thoughts…

A wonderful journey between ancient and modern flavors, a journey we will repeat very soon! 

–Patrizia e Mario

The first time here was the 6th of May 1962, the last one (indeed the penultimate!) … today on the occasion of our dad Celso. Happy Birthday!
It was a pleasure to celebrate it with you.

With love!


I must agree that this is one of the most competitive Italian Restaurant I have ever had during my past two weeks trip in Europe. The food, service was fantastic.
