In the town center, inside the middle age castle. Great choice of wines. Perfect for a special occasion!

The restaurant is located in the castle of Formigine. The food, typical and seasonal, was excellent. So was also the service. We will remember the place particularly for trying for the first time a red sparkling wine, typical from the region: the Lambrusco.

Description
Welcome! A great pleasure to welcome you in this wonderful place in 1200. Here, guests with you, we will return to this ancient castle also its friendly aspect has always been important to its daily life and society. To us a daunting task to play with passion and attention, even comforted by the assurance that you will want to enjoy our cuisine and prestigious place in which we find ourselves with appropriate respect and sensitivity. Only two iwords on our kitchen ... Simply but carefully, characterized by the use of the products we selected, among the many excellent features of Modena and Emilia: the density and dark syrupy balsamic vinegar, Parmigiano Reggiano compactness of the rock, the sensual softness of our meats, the vibrant energy of the Lambrusco ... An explosion of flavors with their typical characteristics are able to restore a piece of identity, making us remember who we are and how we have changed over time. Honest flavors that this must be respected, as well as compliance with the seasonality of many products of the earth, we will repay the patience to wait with great pleasure to savor the best!Now enjoy our dishes, all freshly cooked, washed down with a glass of wine, and taking advantage of this place that smells of history, a moment of respite from the frenzy of today.
