A very nice restaurant with impeccable service. The menu is varied with focus on local specialities and ingredients. I always come here when in Modena, not only for the complimentary glass of Prosecco to begin with...

Being in Modena when everything is closed this was a welcome surprise. We had a very attentive waiter who attempted to translate the menu into English to help the younger members of our party. The menu tradicionale was an excellent mix of all local produce - definitely recommend it. All the food we ordered was well presented and very tasty.... More

We ate as a family of six. The service was wonderful and the food sumptuous. It was one of our best and least expensive dinners of our trip yet!

I don't thinks that the price Is cheap regarding the menus. It was correct meal but expensive. 36€ just for this 3 plate to the photos without vine. I don't need to try a second time.

We arrived in Modena with no mewl plans, but were ready for lunch. Our hostess recommended Al Cenacolo and made the reservation for us. I don't know what she told them, but we were treated like royalty. We were greeted with a pre dinner glass of Prosecco, then a sample appetizer. Our main course was a visual work of art... More

Visited this restaurant on the recommendation of the staff in our hotel - had asked for a suggestion of a not too expensive, relaxed restaurant in the area. We arrived at about 8pm to an empty restaurant and were immediately poured a glass of wine on the house. The staff do not speak much English and we were a bit... More

I've been here many times...and I tried almost everything! I like pretty much all...the fish is very good, main courses are nice and meat is very nice as well. The thing I don't like very much is pizza...but it still good! Location is cool as well...suitable for business, romantic or friends dinner.
