Very pleasant evening

The service was very good. We opted for the tasting menu which was adjusted due to intolerance. The food was also very good thought at one point repetitive with the fish. We only tried meet once, thought it was delicious. The ambiance is welcoming.

My wife and I combined a two days visit of Modena with a dinner at L'erba del Re. We were totally satisfied. The ambient was very nice: very well spaced tables and friendly and styled staff. We chose the "experience" menu (tasting menu, 10 courses). It was experimental, very nicely served and delicious. At the end of the dinner, we... More

The restaurant looks nice and the service was excellent !!! Unfortunately the food was average (not to say disappointing) although it looks like a piece of art. Unfortunately not a value for money!

Our expectations were high as we looked forward to dining at a Michelin honored restaurant. The simplicity of the dining room offered an unimpressive felling. Neither the cutlery, glassware or dishes reflected any elegance. The service was fairly decent, with formal suited waiters coordinating the voila effect when the lids were removed from the plates. The wines were nothing special,... More

Pulled into Modena at 2 on a Saturday and the town looked dead but we found the restaurant (which is kind of in an office building) and they let us in. Had a seafood pasta dish that will be with me forever--so good. Husband had an anchovy pasta dish which he liked but preferred mine. Good, affordable wine list. Beautiful... More

This very exquisite restaurant is located near the Pomposa Square, in the middle of old Modena. The experience at this restaurant is a turning point in anyone culinary search for the best. Own and operated by Chef Luca Marchini, a student of Chef Bottura (of the Osteria Francescana) the restaurant offers all what is the best in food and ambience.... More

We were extremely well served here but the food lacked that Michelin star quality ., the ideas are there but the flavour is not. We had a great experience but not a great dinner and for the wine matched with each course when you use the same wine for 3 courses its not quite the same !!

I don't get this place. The venue was good and the service was great, friendly and helpful. But the food, I don't get it. On the positives, the portion size mentioned in previous reviews was not an issue the dishes where generous by mitchelin star standards, the bread kept coming and my wine was topped up during the wine flight....

The chef at this restaurant is very competent and original. His food is minimalist, nouvelle cuisine. What he does is well done, but I personally do not like this concept. If I like a dish I want a decent serving and if I don't like it then I don't want it at all. For people like me, if you have... More

The quality of the products used is beyond any doubt, just excellent. But the way the chef has found the right balance between the different tastes is just mind-blowing. As an example, try the salmon with chocolate and spinach... It doesn't get any better than this. Nice touch: this is a chef that is humble and gets is pleasure from... More
