A tasty adventure!

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... read 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

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
