We visited here following a recommendation from our hotel. It is a very easy place to find, just minutes from the church side of the main square up to the left from the synagogue. It is clearly marked by the large yellow sign in the photos on this page.
The menu on the wall outside is all in Italian which initially put us off (we speak not a word!). But upon entry and going up stairs we were offered a menu in English, French or German! Our waiter spoke excellent English as was able to guide us through the option we could get. He took great delight in explaining to us the local specialities and the history of the food (we felt more and more like locals the longer we stayed there!)
The food was served quickly and was warm, delicious and excellent size portions. The place went like a fair which at least 30 Italians coming in to eat their tea.
We left feeling like we had had good value for money, an education into local food and like we were now part of the community! A excellent evening, delicious food with added wonderful hospitality thrown in for free.

Italiano: appena arrivati a Modena, abbiamo preso un caffe' e chiesto al cameriero un consiglio per pranzare bene. Ci ha consigliato subito Da Enzo. L'abbiamo trovato andando in centro (e' molto centrale) e prenotato -- per fortuna, perche' quando siamo tornati alle 13 stavano mandando via la gente, era tutto pieno! E stato un'esperienze davvero eccellente, da ogni punto di vista: piatti tipici preparati con cura, quasi quasi con amore, con ingredienti di qualita'. L'ambiente e' molto piacevole, sia elegante che conviviale, ed il servizio e' stremamente cortese e accogliente. Poi e' arrivato il conto: un rapporto prezzo/qualita' veramente buono. Questo posto e' da non perdere (ma non dimenticate di prenotare)!

English: we found this place by chance, after asking the waiter in a cafe' for a restaurant recommendation for lunch. He directed us to Da Enzo, which is centrally located. What a great recommendation. We made a reservation, fortunately, because when we returned at 1pm they were turning people away. The meal was wonderful, filled with local flavors, all prepared with great care and enthusiasm. Good local wine as well. The service is impeccable: courteous and friendly, and the general ambiance is elegantly convivial. We were also pleasantly surprised by the bill: a fair price indeed! In sum, don't miss out on this place, but be sure to make a reservation!

IT IS SO GOOD TO STEP INTO A PLACE AND FIND THEY TREAT YOU LIKE A NORMAL PERSON, NOT LIKE A TOURIST TO MILK.
the food is delicious, the service impeccable, it's full of locals, one Modenese couple sitting next to us gave us advice on the food and the wine to order; we enjoyed it greatly!

What a great evening! Special thanks to Andriy and Giuseppe for the best service I've probably ever experienced in a restaurant. I came here as a stranger and left feeling like a drunk local. ;) To all of you who stop by in Modena, this place is more than recommendable. Great local dishes, nice atmosphere and people who are passionate about food. It can hardly get any better. Thank you!

Don't miss this place! We caught the train from Bologna to Modena late in the afternoon, wandered around and sampled the town and then had a fantastic meal here. Well worth the trip.
