It's hard to reach if you don't know the way, but it's worth looking for it: a nice steak house in a dead end alley, with a different menu. With my wife and my daughter we ate appetizers (six pieces of bread with sausage and cheese for one person), steaks and chips and a very surprising tartare with truffle and... More

We came upon this quaint restaurant when the restaurant we were supposed to go to closed for vacation. ALSO...take note if you are traveling to Modena during the month of August, almost the entire town is closed for ferragosto ( month long vacation). This place was open and the food was amazing! Great burgers! Fantastic strip steak that comes seasoned... More

I went last week on saturday with a couple of friends. The quality of the meat is good and the location is fine but I don't agree with many enthusiastic reviews.

But it was not just about that there were great salads and I sampled a steak tartare too that was... More

Even if I went there with my best friend, I would suggest this restaurant even for couples. Small place, few tables, nice service, great steaks and we had the Scottona red wine (allegedly made for them by a famous Italian winery) that worked very well with our food. One of the best places in Modena for stakes, the price is... More

We were in a group of 12 people for lunch (5 children) and Horacio was so kind with us. But it wasn't all, because the dishes were delicious. Everything we ordered tasted really good not to mention the perfection of the meat, tender, cooked in the right point.
