Go to "La Frasca" is eat well but you have to follow what the owner/chef/waitress say to you. You will enjoy every minute, just one thing. It could be a lil expensive but totally worth it

Food is amazing, very fresh, typical and good Italian food, but what makes this restaurant special is the owner/chef. She is totally crazy and does a funny show during the entire evening with stories, joking....for sure it´s very good option to visit in Modena.

The most entertaining and lively landlady I have ever met so far will introduce you to this lovely Hostaria where between very funny jokes you will be able to taste some delicious local meals. I tasted an excellent pork shank with veggies and a asparagus lasagna that I will remember for a long time. A place to visit ideally with... More

Great: primi piatti (gorgonzola, mozarella, and very good typically italian dry aged meat), atmosphere, the eccentric chef Not so great: overcooked dried-out duck and pork for secondi. Expect lots of food! (We ate with 6 persons, the bill was 33e/pp for primi, secondi, 1 glass of lambrusco and 1 glass of wine, no dessert)

This is my "must do" stop every time I pop into Modena. The owner is quite peculiar and might put you off if you are a shy person. But if you can take her crazy attitude you will definitely experience one of the BEST italian meals, just like grandma does it for you at home. (Trust me, I am italian!)

When you go here, don't expect your usual dinner. Most of all, don't be too uptight and strict, because here you'll find the real, fun, rude Italian madness! A bit pricey, but the food is great, and Ada is the best!

The owner is crazy...simply crazy. She leads the cuisine and service tipically by herself, with her continuous strange mood...but she is the real queen of the restaurant! Ifyou go there, you must be prepared to be joked. The choise of courses is limited, but this is due to what she findfresh at the market in the morning. One of the... More

This restaurant was suggested to me by the front desk clerk at the Canal Grande Hotel. I was in Modena the weekend of the 17 August. Literally everything in Modena was closed for the summer vacation period. Many of the restaurants I researched prior to my trip were closed – mid august to the end of august. I arrived around...
