Hit the spot on a rainy day

Having walked around Modena on a wet day the location of this pizzaria was perfect for lunch. The staff were pleasant and the food good, although, by Italian standards, the wine was a bit over priced for a regional wine. A good recommendation from Lonely Planet. The position is ideal for your walk... read more

We wanted to get some Italian pizza, but were disappointed with the food. No consideration for kids, no special menus for them. Also no juice, just limo or water for the kids... I wouldn't recommend this for families!

Quite a nice place to go for a late evening dinner. The Pizza has a thin, crispy texture and tastes really good. The baverages are a bit more expensive than usual but you get 0.66l which in the end turns out to be a good price.

Well...shoes warn out? Just order a pizza and use it to re-soul your shoes. The worst and over priced food I've ever had. Pleasant and almost friendly staff (for if they were totally friendly they'd tell you to eat somewhere else). Poor, try somewhere else to throw your money away.

Just the job for a n early evening meal during a business trip to Modena. Staff were polite and attantive and it would be churlish to complain about a good pizza, dolce and a beer for €11!

It's difficult to classify this place,because it's not so bad but also not o nthe top...In Italy people use to say "nella media". Pizza is ok,like in other 100 places,primi also have the same story.Seafood also have a good aspect.

Imagine a warm spring night on a terrace of Modena, seated for dinner. Well, what follows is also good: well served with a hearty kindness and alacrity and beautifully prepared meals (very good mare riso) and prices very restrained and adjusted. No wonder they have many customers!

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
