This restaurant is really unique, if it is the right time of the year you should plan on eating outside under a large draped over area. I had an excellent meal topped off with a totally unique desert, Vanilla Ice Cream topped with Balsamic Vinegar!...More

Known to be a family-run traditional location, the restaurant promotes a quite short and boaring menu, flat and unsatisfactory. Personnel not very hospitable. Not suitable for people-on-the-go. No business cards accepted.

Perfect lunch, if a little too much meat chosen, but this is the place for beef. Courtesy antipasto of small soft white cheese and bruschetta; carne crudo (tartare like); lasagne; fruit with pastry. Red sparkling Lambrusco. True taste of the region and the family's fare.

Food was fantastic. Had a friend who lives in the area take us. The risotto was amazing. In addition, the meats were cooked perfectly. After dinner get an Affagato. Would highly recommend eating in their outdoor garden if possible.

You will find this rustic trattoria,where owner Franco grills steaks from the region's speciality bovines "the bianca modenese cattle",totally charming and with an obvious great bias towards meat. We always go into romantic-mode when sampling the best of the cows' contribution to culinary expression. Service...More
