Ristorante Basilica: Best restaurant in Aquileia
Great clean and comfortable ambience. Nicely furnished and well maintained, but casual. Excellent Italiano style and Chicago style pizza, calzones, pasta, seafood, and other traditional Italiano dishes. Good chilled house wine, and very reasonable prices. Open late but not open early. Italianos unlike neighboring Slovenes, dine late. Accept it.
Favorite Dish: I listed the price as 11 USD to 20 USD, which includes wine or other beverage, tax, and gratuity. Of course in return for good service, you should always round up the bill. However, excellent and filling entrees are available for as little as 5 euros. House wine is very reasonable but beer is expensive.

Hostaria Al Parco: Try the Grilled Squids
I arrived early at the restaurant, and I had to wait a little inside the bar. Soon I noted the wine was cheaper than beer.
The white wine (Sauvignon), produced localy, is delicious. The owner of the restaurant, an old interesting man, sold me a bottle of this wine, produced exclusively for this restaurant, for a good price.
Favorite Dish: I liked very much grilled squids with, of course, the great sauvignon.
For dessert, try the cake covered with blueberries.

Favorite Dish: All what is written above, I've found in the restaurant menu. The dishes are translated in Latin, but there exist transcription in Italian too. I dare you to understand what was the menu of the day.

This is a hotel too (see tip) and, as I couldn't find a restaurant for dinner, I went there; I don't regret (not too many options actually).
