We were recommended cafe concerto by our hotel receptionist. The restaurant is located in a square overlooking a beautiful church. The restaurant was inviting and busy with families and couples chatting. To be honest we thought we may be a little undressed but it was fine.
Staff were friendly but not too intrusive and spoke perfect English.
Before we ordered we were given a glass of something sparkling and delicious, a selection of breads and some crudités, followed by a pillow of Parmesan.
The menu was full of local produce with a focus on balsamic and Parmesan. We had fried baby squid with balsamic and a Parmesan tart to start, both heavenly and then lamb wrapped in pork fat and roast suckling pig, the pig won the course but both were expertly cooked and tasted beautiful. We washed this down with a cent bottle of the local Lambrusco. We finished with hot chocolate cake and home made ice cream which again were very good. Total bill was €93 which we thought was exceptional value.
A local group started playing music around dessert which only added to the evening. A great experience, this will be an evening we remember for many years, thank you.

Centrally located on the Piazza Grande in Modena, we stopped by here one sunny Monday afternoon for a light snack and a prosseco. We found the wine list reasonable and the afternoon buffet quite good.

Sitting outside, the setting is nice and peaceful during the day and makes a relaxing place to spend a little time and watch the goings on in the piazza.

A wonderful spot in the heart of Modena to enjoy a large & lovely cocktail & complimentary buffet filled with delightful savories. An ample spread that can easily take the place of a full dinner, especially if you've already had a multi-course leisurely Italian lunch.

Outdoor seating was shaded, comfortable and can easily accommodate large groups. Service is competent and warm. Family friendly.

We found this restaurant fantastic with super friendly staff. There were six of us traveling together and we had just arrived on Modena and were staying just off the square. We were tired, hungry and not feeling particularly human after a long flight from Melbourne, Australia to Milan and then a train to Modena. We were warmly welcomed and out waiter and waitress were terrific understanding that we were in need of a quick meal before retreating for sleep in a bed for the first time in 40 hours. We ended up staying a little longer than expected due to the hospitality of the staff. The food was great, beer cold and wine perfect. We were served complimentary deep fried Parmesan served with balsamic, delicious and also a yummy dessert.lovely atmosphere.
