Exclent restaurant owned by a familly - a temple to Emilian cuisine. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. This restaurant is a place where the quality and the tradition are at the best.

A good business friend invited me for dinner at this restaurant located in the hotel Arnaldo at the village of Rubiera, between Reggio Emilia and Modena. We sat inside in an air-conditioned area- there were a lot of people sitting outside on a pretty warm evening. Food is presented in trolleys - firstly cold antipasto then the trolley of the... More

I stopped by Arnaldo's for lunch with s business colleague. The day was hot, so we sat outside in the patio. We ordered a sampler that included sliced meats and salad. All items were made with quality ingredients, and meats are sliced right there at your table. The plates are wonderfully presented. The sampler was around 20 Euros, and while... More

The quality is basically always the same during the years Very good appetizers - lots of solutions of local specialities - wide menu and good wine list. Service is good as it should be. Only one thing to underline: Local Dumplings were not so good as it was in the past...Strange! ...anyway a place to be back!

This is a special type of restaurant (we visited another of its kind in Modena) with superb local cuisine, with very high prices, full to the brim all the evenings, frequented by locals. As we were hotel guests, we went to the buffet breakfast and we saw with our eyes that the pasta served at restaurant at night is really... More

This is a gem, the holy grail of food, wine and Enzo Ferrari's favorite place. We had the privilege to sit at the same corner table like the Commendatore, the food is all home made, from scratch, pasta, meat, desserts, and soon much more. The wine list is excellent local wines and A list as well, very reasonable priced, service... More

We booked for a week-end lunch at Arnaldo because we heard a lot of good things about this place. The first impression is a bit intimidating with its large tables, heavy chairs and dressed-up wait staff. The menu is long for "primi" and "antipasti", but we knew that the best things here are the soups and the "carrello" of meats... More

I come here every year in november for my mother's birthday. It's always a success. The quality of food starting from its specialty "spugnolata" to the chariots of boiled and roasted meats is excellent and fully respectful of local traditions. All desserts are perfect. The atmosphere is really warm and perfect for an autumn lunch or dinner. The service is... More
