Description: Il locale propone piatti all'insegna della genuina tradizione del territorio e proprio da questo, vengono selezionati i migliori prodotti che saranno utilizzati per la preparazione dei piatti che compongono il menu: dai tipici salumi al gnocco fritto che viene preparato al momento, ai celebri cappelletti in brodo di cappone ai tortelli verdi riempiti di spinaci e bietole, per poi spaziare sui secondi dove il fiore all'occhiello e rappresentato dal coniglio al forno al bianco di Scandiano.Il ristorante, suddiviso in due ambienti caldi ed arricchiti di opere di artisti locali e non che trimestralmente vengono aggiornate, offre un perfetto mix di professionalita e cordialita unite da un cibo sano che trae origine dalle tradizioni del territorio e che in estate, possono essere degustate anche in una distesa che si affaccia sulla medioevale rocca dei Boiardo.

“Pretensious with no substance”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

I have read great reviews on this restaurant, however it did not deliver, in any way. On saying that I do not eat potatoes, we then asked for some vegetable as one of our dishes only came with potatoes, we were told that they do not have any vegetables, whilst I was pointing out that other dishes come with spinach and aubergine and asking that maybe we could have spinage we were told quite firmly- No! I was almost on my feet at this stage but finally we managed to get the waiter to go into the kitchen and ask the chef if he could do a salad, which he did manage. Food was just ok and service seemed like they were doing you a favour. I wouldn't bother going here, there are better. Check out my review on Ristorante Badessa

“Scandiano the hidden sister of Modena”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

The plan was to eat at the best Modena ristorante however life happens plans change and we're We lucky! Osteria in Scandiano is a hidden jewel , let's start with service; attentive , amazing however the real jewel is the food from Brodo - Pasta- Entree each plate was more delectable than the previous. Enjoy
