of course the food and the service are excellent. it is, after all, a michelin-star restaurant. what i loved most of all was the journey on which the chef, Emilio Barbieri, takes you. a journey through flavours, textures, colours, smells and shapes, that is what makes the food so unique. you could tell how much thought and work went into...

We ordered the Strada Facendo tasting menu with a bottle of Lambrusco. It was a mixture of seafood and land dishes and it was incredible. There was a soup with an oyster, a platter of different fish tartars, a lovely glass with some sort of avocado salad with lobster, then another tartar (not sure what kind of meat but it... More

Food was excellent. Price was reasonable. I am not even going to bother you with the details, except one. Those who tried a work lunch in a michelin starred resto know that the price of the menu ends up being very far from what you actually pay as drinks and coffee will easily jack the bill up +€10-20. Not here.... More

The service at this restaurant is excellent. Really enjoy the husband/wife team as chef and sommelier. Food was very good, but not as good as I remembered it a few years back....maybe just the choice of dishes this time. All that said, one can find a great Italian meal in this area and walk out with a much smaller check,... More

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

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
