I read good and bad reviews of this restaurant.. Was a bit apprehensive initially but I am glad I came. The service is excellent.. Very attentive and professional. The food... Excellent, very creative and excellent mix of flavours and textures. The king crab in avocado was amazing.. Each mouthful... Hmm.. Heaven... The monk fish was a bit saltish.. Not the... More

Visited Strada Facendo on a Saturday evening, We were 5 friends that was looking for a nice meal, and we had heard that we would get it here. Decision was a 8 course tasting menu with wine pairing. in total we were probably served 11-12 different courses and they were all excellent. Very artistic and exceptional taste combinations, all to... More

We were traveling through Modena and looking for a nice restaurant which serves lunch after 2pm. We found it ! We were the only ones in the restaurant and were treated as kings. Had a very nice menu for a very fair price and enjoyed the warm welcoming atmosphere of this place. Highly recommended !

I was recently at a 3 star in Italy which was extremely good. Strada Facendo was just as good in a slightly different way and cost 1/3 as much. It is the best meal I have had in Italy, certainly on a cost adjusted basis. The chef and staff were very friendly and did their best to explain the dishes... More

Lovely little place in the outskirt of Modena, making it very conveninet if you are driving as there is plenty of parking space outside. With the exception of the truly wonderful tortellini, our meal was completely fish based, and what a fish it was. Great, intense and balanced flavours with very fresh ingredients. The artichoke cream with deep fried supertiny... More

Emilio Barbieri is not one of those chefs whom you always find on TV and at celebrity meetings: he is one of those very serious professionals working out of the limelight, but with no less ability and no lesser produce than the better known colleagues. We had an all seafood lunch (with a tortellini sampling out of sheer gluttony) which... More

This is a place to eat great unpretentious Italian food in the way it's supposed to be cooked. Chef comes to your table to take your order, the sommelier is super nice and the food is another great chapter. Modena is a foodie city and this is an Italian michelin starred restaurant at its best. A must go.

Up till my wife and I ate here, my wife and I were on the fence about the quality of high end Italian food. No longer. We had the Fish lunch menu, which consisted of an amazing paccheri and scallops, a mouthwatering octopus cake, a wonderful sea bass served over sea salt and an excellent home made ice cream. This...

Looking for authentic 5-star local cuisine, you found it. This quaint and respected restaurant has been serving locals and knowledgeable tourists for years. It is situated out out of the main areas and therefore is recommended that you travel by car or taxi. However the small detour is well worth your while. We decided on this restaurant based on a...
