This place is pretty good. It did loose points because of the waiter's mood. But, don't let that stop you, he might have been having a bad day. The food did offset that. Pasta and pizza (it is Italy) and salads creatively put together. READ THE MENU: meaning when they say the salad is carrots, tomatoes and potatoes, that is... More

This restaurant caught our attention because it was full of italians having dinner, so we decided to give it a try. I tried parmesan cheese with balsamico for appetizer, and grilled calamari as a main dish, and mascarpone cream for dessert, all of them were very good. We didn't order pizza, but it was the most ordered thing at the... More

We lived in Modena for a few years, and have had to dine here not by choice, but because we were in groups, and each and every time I eat here, I am disappointed. The last time I ate here, the seafood pasta was uncooked, the staff were icy, and everything was just blahhhh. We ate out every single night... More

Unlike some other reviewers we very much enjoyed our meal here. Pizza for my companion, beers, and a tortellini that i thought would be a starter but pretty much stopped me before the veal came. It too was delicious. Yep the staff speak Italian, but we are in Italy. And they put up with this Aussies attempt on a very... More

We ate here after our first preference was closed. We found that the staff spoke very little English and when we attempted Italian they seemed unimpressed. Our italian is not good but its not bad enough to warrant the response we received. They were not very helpful in communicating and continued to speak to us in full Italian conversation though...

"Scrivi la tua recensione su Tripadvisor" one is asked on a poster upon paying and leaving. Slightly risky. I didn't have much time, so only took a primo. The tortelloni alla crema di noce ( 9 €) were good, but the portion was really more like an appetizer. The day before I had Penne all'arrabiata at the nearby La Mamma,... More

Very good food, helpful staff. Overcrowded in summer, therefore you have to think about not being too hungry when waiting for a table. Definitely a place to eat in Modena at least once!
