I've been traveling to Modena for a number of years. Mostly in business but also some private trips. Zelmira is one of those places where I always come back. I've been here more than a dozen times and of course there has been times that were not perfect in all aspects. However, the general level is high if you like... More

You can go for a lunch in a sunny afternoon or for an intimate dinner, the result is always a winner. The food is great, the location is extremely romantic and classy.

Great service and pretty good service. Very quiet and not too many tourists. Nice terrasse for lovers and Nice sélection of italian wines. The only minus is the cost of the grappa :(

In Zelmira the food is excellent, it is innovative and fresh - scallops with celeriac purée so tasty and light, black rice was perfect and strawberries with Modenas most... More

Despite we had to go inside as all outside tables were reserved ( you know what to do) we got a perfect service (thanks to Toni and the team) great advices and more importantly great food which was tasty and excellent wine....

We were in Italy for business in August when most places are closed. Our hotel recommended the restuarant to us and was it great. We ordered some starters of mixed hams and then they also recommended another starter. All of this was excellent. We had the Angus beef for main course and this was better than good. We ended the...

Food was traditional and good. Unfortunately, the staff was inattentive and we had to try to get their attention. There are better restaurants in Modena.
