Had a drink yesterday, was impressed as there were plenty of nibbles at the bar, included with your drink. They chrged for it anyway as I paid 5€ for a glass of vino.

On a hot day at Modena we found here a nice place in the shadow, closely to the Duome of Modena. Opposite we saw a small ark and the Synogogue, beautifully restored. Drinks were good at this caffe and they served us well.
