“Quality is good, price is higher-than-expected, area is to wide”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

I went there following a BW Hotel Modena Palace’s concierge suggestion (1 km far by car).
The quality of food is very good, mostly organic, traditional and hand made. However, the price is higher than the fair price for that food.
It is highly recommended for tourist and mostly for foreigner business men (Ferrari factory or Modena city is very close to this place), however Italians might not be satisfied: but the case you are paid by a client of yours, Italians will not enjoy value for money.

“Must visit”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Great Italian food and great atmosphere. The Gonoco fritto is a must try. Good service and very nice settings. We tried gennochi , meats, pizzas and tiramisu and they were all great. We came back twice.

“finally, this is how food should be”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Finally, after a week spent around Modena, constantly eating good food, I went to try Ca' Del Rio, with a group of friends. Everyone told me it's a must when in Modena to try the original Gnocco Fritto. So there we were, 12 people, all hungry, sitting around the table in such a familiar environment. The young waiter was super patient and very professional. Everyone ordered mixed antipasti, but that comes with all different kinds of cheese... I only eat parmigiano reggiano cheese and as he understood my "problem", or rather fixation, quite well, I was given this immense beautiful parmesan cheese plate with another plate of the best Prosciutto di Parma I have ever had. Great company to the Gnocchi! Being as greedy as I am, I also had two main courses, tagliatelle al ragu, quite consistent and simple. And some ravioli/tortellini that were just amazing. Everything followed by tiramisu and also tried their mascarpone cream, which is divine and after that, basically, one can simply die peacefully.....
The point is that great cuisine sometimes can be so simple: a few ingredients and lots of passion. This is an easy place, family orientated, everyone having pizza or gnocco, it's not formal at all and you just don't want to leave ever....

“Definitely worth a try”
Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

We were recommended this place by the hotel manager at Best Western Plus, so felt it was worth a try. Food was great, and very well priced considering how big the portions were. Drinks were very reasonably priced. Our waitress spoke very good English and was very attentive, which helped the overall experience. We used a taxi for our visit to the restaurant and if you did the same, I would recommend you agree a price before you set off, as they charge whatever they want!!!

“A real italian restaurant!”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel, as we were asking for good food, but not formal.
And that's exactly what we got. Not at all the touristic restaurant!
