The map shown by Tripadvisor is not correct, this osteria is closer to the highway, GPS 44.6612N,10.8224E, and it is correctly shown in GoogleMaps. There are very few places of this kind left, that still provides an atmosphere of old times. If you are driving...More

The locale is quite interesting like an old style trattoria emiliana and the owner of the place is very proud of his heritage, as he keeps on reminding the guests every 5 minutes! He is also proud of the fact that Enzo Ferrari (the Ferrari...More

L'Osteria "La Piola" delle Ortiche è a non più di 1000 metri dall'uscita Modena Nord dell'Autosole nel punto di raccordo con la Autobrennero.

E' ristorante solo per esigenze di reperibilità sull'elenco telefonico ma è sempre stata Locanda con annessa stazione di posta e cambio cavalli, oltreché traghetto sul fiume Secchia. Dell'antica Locanda ha conservato quella gradevole sensazione di calda accoglienza assieme alla tradizione degli antichi piatti modenesi.

La cucina modenese più conosciuta è quella "del maiale", grassa e opulenta: cucina da contadini ricchi e da padroni.

La cucina della Piola è quella della civiltà contadina, dei carrettieri, degli scariolanti. Cucina povera, pertanto leggera e "dai profumi e sapori dimenticati" (Cesare Zavattini).

E' stato anche detto del locale "l'osteria che ognuno di noi vorrebbe incontrare", oppure "l'ambiente è sereno e gli osti cordiali purché tu non chieda piatti con panna e Coca Cola"
