I'm looking for a nice, romantic place to take my girlfriend (an avid foodie) out for her birthday dinner in late June. We want to go somewhere in the Friuli Giulia, perhaps on the beach, but ultimately, the location matters less than the food. On another thread, I read that Marano Lagunare has nice seafood... ? Besides the food, an additional plus would be a hotel within walking distance so we can enjoy as much wine as possible.
I've been reading the slow food guide, and must admit I'm a bit overwhelmed by the preponderance of barley and bean soup, so any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
