I thought restaurants like this belonged in the last century. Over priced self satisfied cooking. Only in Italy do restaurants insist on serving bottled water and vegetables as an extra. Avoid at all costs.

Have to say I had one of the best aubergine dishes I have ever had as a starter here - with mint and capers - stunning. Great pasta too but the owner was pretty grumpy which was a great shame. Not the cheapest meal I have ever had - 85 Euro for a nice bottle of wine, 3 starters and... More

Went to this place based on a recommendation. I am not sure how this place got such good reviews but the group I went with were all disappointed and underwhelmed. The food is ok and plentiful but after getting the check we all felt gauged. I am giving it a 1 / 5 rating in an attempt to skew the... More

Situated in the center of Modena, few minutes by walk from the main square, lies this small family run trattoria. I've been the first time here with a person from the area, and we stopped for lunch.

I had never been there before and I decided to follow the suggestion of a client of mine. The place is characteristic, located in the heart of Modena, and it's got a patio for al-fresco dining. However, I have not seen any menus either for dining or for wining so I could not check prices and I had to follow... More

I went twice in this reataurant, the first time I was disappointed but decided to give it another chance; I had to trust my first imopression of the place, definitely. There is no menu, so you don't know the price of what you are going to eat, we were 2 people and payed 140 euro the first time, for a... More
