The proprietors were friendly but the food was not what I was hoping for. Based on TA reviews, I thought I would be in for more of a treat. I had the mixed (meat) grill. The portion was nice. The veal was good, the sausage was good. The beef was a bit dry. The side of rosemary potatoes was also... More

This lovely small resturant in Modena was one of the best we visited during our trip. We highly recommend you to skip the secondi and just order every type of pasta they have. We paid a total sum of 70€ (per 2 persons)- was worth every cent.

We found the reviews to be promising and we stopped in this lovely small trattoria. close to the center, not too easy to find but not that much of a hassle either. Great portion sizes, giant salumi and formaggi, hard to finish in two.. and lovely primi, try the culatello and asparagi sauce. Nice and informal service, and quick to... More
