We came back to Modena because we remember how good the pizza is here.We were rewarded with yet another fab woodfired pizza made with authentic italian ingredients by Franco. We also had a lovely bottle of wine. The premises has been upgraded. All in all its worth the little effort to get here.By the way we are very fussy pizza... More

absolutely great. Superb, 100 percent Italian. We ordered pizza from the wood oven, gigantic. super thin soil, well documented, fresh ingredients. If you feel like pizza, this is the place. Thank you for the good food.

Best Pizza in Rawai despiting of course European Pizzas as in Italia or Spain. Not easy to find a pizza similar to Italia, but this place is almost the same. All pizza are made in wood oven. Also pasta is pretty good.

The boss / owner is a real nut talk about mad chefs, how anyone can work for this guy is beyond me. It's an embarrassment to watch him in action. Food OK.

If you've a hankering for Pizza then look no further. Cooked to perfection by an Italian Chef that is a dead ringer of Luigi from Super Mario (including the hat). His Pizza base is thin and crispy like it's meant to be and the toppings are as fresh as they are varied. Definitely try it out.

I've been coming to this restaurant for a few years and have never been disappointed. Modena recently moved a little further along the road and for a moment I thought it had closed down. Finding Franco with his pizza oven still in business was as always a highlight of the holiday.

Had the "Bologna Pizza" and a couple of beers at Modena's last night. Perfect! Franco uses a hot brick oven and he's a master at making great pizza. This place is a little off the beaten path if you're in Rawai or Nai Harn, but it's worth the drive. If you haven't been there in a while, it has moved... More
