The philosophy of the place is stunning - they sell only whatever they grow on the farm and the result is delicious!!! We visit the place every time we go south and no matter if winter of summer the menue was always a great experience.

A very short, but absolutely tasty menu! Ancient receipt with tasty and fresh ingredients... an ancient Osteria in modern time...I think we'll need more like this!

Having lived in Italy for quite a few years, we're used to good food at reasonable prices. We expected that here but were disappointed. The food was fine, the menu limited in the extreme, the host was overbearing, the portions tiny and the prices extortionate!...More

This restaurant is closed for renovation. No information on their website, you can still book tables online via Tripadvisor, TheFork etc. so it was a real disappointment when we made an online reservation, received a confirmation and stood in front of closed doors.

We had a brilliant dinner after a hard work at Play Modena fairs. Will certainly visit again. Three courses of food, wine and good service at low price. What more can you ask?

Description
L'Osteria "La Piola" delle Ortiche è a non più di 1000 metri dall'uscita Modena Nord dell'Autosole nel punto di raccordo con la Autobrennero.

E' ristorante solo per esigenze di reperibilità sull'elenco telefonico ma è sempre stata Locanda con annessa stazione di posta e cambio cavalli, oltreché traghetto sul fiume Secchia. Dell'antica Locanda ha conservato quella gradevole sensazione di calda accoglienza assieme alla tradizione degli antichi piatti modenesi.

La cucina modenese più conosciuta è quella "del maiale", grassa e opulenta: cucina da contadini ricchi e da padroni.

La cucina della Piola è quella della civiltà contadina, dei carrettieri, degli scariolanti. Cucina povera, pertanto leggera e "dai profumi e sapori dimenticati" (Cesare Zavattini).

E' stato anche detto del locale "l'osteria che ognuno di noi vorrebbe incontrare", oppure "l'ambiente è sereno e gli osti cordiali purché tu non chieda piatti con panna e Coca Cola"
