“We are used to always choosing the best quality and Pratic is the top for us”.
Mr. Roberto Romano loves to be direct and thus tells his experience with the outdoor world adapted specifically for his restaurant. We are talking about Hostaria Alla Tavernetta, one of the most appreciated restaurants in Udine thanks to well-kept spaces and a top-level food and wine proposal. A successful family business, given that alongside Mr. Roberto there is Mrs. Giuliana Petris and their son Matteo.
The project, for them, is ambitious from the beginning 17 years ago when Mr. Roberto and Mrs. Giuliana immediately entered into harmony with Friulian tradition, both with aesthetic and good food, and the aim of making this old historic tavern a meeting place to move with the times. In the kitchen, there is the rule of quality accompanied by some secrets that of course cannot be revealed. On the other hand, the challenge was to find an outdoor structure able to offer protection from the sun’s rays, but also from light rain typical of spring and autumn. The architectural context is rich in personality and a solution that enhances it is the request made by the property to the architect Mr. Stefano Carlutti.
“We wanted to provide our customers the opportunity to have lunch or dinner outside, as the street in which we are based is in the historic centre and enjoys pleasant tranquillity. At the same time, we were not only interested in a cover, but rather in a gesture of attention for all those who choose our restaurant”.
This is why the T-Hide extendable arm awnings in a refined ivory colour represented the ideal solution, thanks to their pure aesthetics and technical features that allow them to close perfectly — when not used — and become a real architectural sign that makes the external wall of Hostaria La Tavernetta even more precious. Moreover, a very important advantage for daily use and maintenance, the T-Hide box contains all the technology and the fabric of the awning. A combination of aesthetic and rational design typical of the Pratic philosophy.
“We visited the Pratic showroom and were impressed by the outdoor proposals and the customization service guaranteed for each project – Mr. Roberto continues.”
T-Hide is actually perfect because of its compactness and solidity: it can extend up to 700 centimetres in length and 400 in depth, and can incline from 10 to 40 degrees. In the case of Hostaria La Tavernetta, it was designed without LEDs, as the soft light from table candles was already present.
“The Pratic awning”- the owner Mr. Roberto concludes – “has allowed us to welcome our customers outside as well as in our rooms and on the terrace. The eye-catcher is undoubtedly refined and also contributes to making us easily visible from the square. Noting that customers come back by virtue of the kitchen and service, but also of the comfort we offer in all seasons fills us with satisfaction and confirms that Pratic was a choice consistent with our high-quality idea.”
