This great little bar/restaurant in an almost hidden narrow alley is well worth finding - the large number of locals vouch for that. It has a very friendly ambience and an interesting menu - not only traditional italian food. It is a simple, elegantly designed cosy space and the service was very friendldy and attentive, A great and varied selection... More

For a night in Modena with a friend, this was an excellent choice. Much creativity in the menu, to srart with, great choice of wines, my only concern as a vegetarian, almost no choice: only one dish in the menu. Better so, l didn't have to choose, took the only one available, and was great !

A Monday night and a restaurant with people looking to find a table speaks volumes for the food and service. Arrived early for a good but different beer before an excellent meal. Fresh food cooked and presented well at a sensible price. Staff and service hits the exact spot for a relaxed and enjoyable evening.

This place was suggest to us by locals, otherwise we would have never found it, hidden in a small pedestrian street as it is. The staff is very friendly with good, direct ideas about food and wine and I love it. We had primi and then cheese with some great wine. At the end we were pleasantly surpised by the... More

It is a favourite place of my friends who live in Modena. The ambiance is casual and fun, the service was very good, good selection of European beers, and the food was delicious. I had the Battuta di Fassone (the Italian version of steak tartare), which was superb. A nice place to have a casual meal while in Modena.

This really was a lucky find at the end of a walk around the sites and streets of Modena. In a small alley tucked away you find this small and friendly bar / restaurant. It has a selection of draft [alla spina] beers from different places and the 'Birrifico del Ducato' is good and worth a try. There is no... More

Nice and quiet joint where you can certainly go for a croissant in the morning or an aperetivo in the evening but I suggest you to go there for an actual meal a-la-carte. It is located in a very narrow and somewhat characteristic back alley off the main street in Modena. The place is nothing special or fancy although design... More
