Reataurant "Al Gallo" is situated in the heart of the city, in one of those medieval houses but interior wass recently renewed. It offers relatively small ambient with no more then 50 seats and therefore prenotation is suggested, in particularly if dinner during weekends. The doorway of the restaurant is so attractive and I decided to have lunch...more
Visiting Pordenone on business, our hosts brought us up into the foothills of the Dolomites to this family-run gem to try some local specialities, and as usual, the locals know which restaurants serve the good stuff! The closeness of Austria is evident, as this place, located just outside the village of Mezzomonte, feels more like an alpine hut...more
I visited Pordenone on business, and was brought to this restaurant by our Italian hosts for an evening meal. As always, trust the locals to know where the best food is to be had! This restaurant is fairly new, and run by a group of young people keen to show off their skills (or so I was told). And boy, do they have some skills!Their speciality is...more
Like a big warehouse. Nice place to play pool anyways. Some pretty girls from all over Europe. Some speak English some don't. I'm sorry but 50 Euro is just too much to pay for a lap dance but it's a nice place. The drinks are pretty cheap and the pool table is nice. You can go to the front and exchange Euro for Lira unless you want to throw 1Euro coins at the dancers.
Dress Code: None
The otherwise unimpressive town of Pordenone hides a beautiful old-town main street, Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, with a wealth of fashion shops for all budgets, although mainly for the bigger ones! Cozy cafés and restaurants line the street as well, so when your feet ache from all the walking there's never far to the nearest cup of espresso or birra alla spina.
What to buy: Lots of different italian fashion brands, both world famous and more local.
What to pay: All budgets, but mainly at the pricey end - shoes at 300+ euros are not uncommon.
Favorite thing: Pordenone was already inhabited before the 10th century, which is attested to by the necropolis that was recently brought to light under the Palazzo Ricchieri. In the 12th century the city started significant development of the commercial activities of the port on the river Noncello from which it gets its name - Portus Naonis.
