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.

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!
