I tried persepolis because was in the same building of my hotel and was a good experience, they were so generous and gently with me, they give a free antipasta and a dessert.

Although in Modena, there are only a few international options and not all of them share high quality, this one is a true Persian offering an original taste of the "sweet"part of East. Not spicy although rich in taste, it brings out the most of...More
