Sincere thanks to the chef and the staff for creating one of the best culinary experience there can be had. The chef was kind enough to create and provide special vegetarian dishes for my friends and each one was a unique piece of art. Not just the food but the service, hospitality and ambience joined to create a once in... More

This restaurant, tucked away in an unassuming location on the outskirts of Modena, serves the finest, most carefully prepared and presented Italian food. My wife and I and another couple recently had lunch there, and it was among the best meals I have ever had. Each dish was explained to us, and featured a variety of different flavors, each recognizable,... More

Excellent place and people (owners and waiters). Place is really nice and food is really delicious. Price is a bit higher on average, but the food deserve what they ask for

We enjoyed an excellent meal at Strada Facenda, with personal service from the moment we entered. Even the chef and sommelier visited our table for orders and advice. The award-winning lasagne didn't disappoint, neither did the branzino and extensive wine list.

We were taken to this restaurant by our guide. It is next to a petrol station and in an unassuming building on a busy road. Unless you know about it you would drive straight by. We were a party of 9 and had the good fortune to have such a fabulous lunch. The chef won best lasagna in Italy for... More

I decided to try this place out after searching good reviews and delighted to discover that the food is ever bit as excellent as the other recommendations. We heard about Chef Emilio Barbieri and we were very happy with the food and the friendly but polte service of M.Casagranda. Madame Roncetti was a great somelier and recommended wonderful wine ....

of course the food and the service are excellent. it is, after all, a michelin-star restaurant. what i loved most of all was the journey on which the chef, Emilio Barbieri, takes you. a journey through flavours, textures, colours, smells and shapes, that is what makes the food so unique. you could tell how much thought and work went into...
