Great Italian food and great atmosphere. The Gonoco fritto is a must try. Good service and very nice settings. We tried gennochi , meats, pizzas and tiramisu and they were all great. We came back twice.

Finally, after a week spent around Modena, constantly eating good food, I went to try Ca' Del Rio, with a group of friends.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel, as we were asking for good food, but not formal. And that's exactly what we got. Not at all the touristic restaurant!

Actually the menu is very complete regional dishes and all very well prepared. The environment is excellent and the service is even better. I will return, as the Frito chomp and their accompaniments are excellent.
