Funghi are specialties of the house and we enjoyed them in bruschetta and on pasta. The family does the cooking and serves the meals. We went with their recommendations on selections from the supper menu and on wine. All were winners. Breakfast was also very tasty and plentiful.

My family and I had the good fortune to stay at the B&B above the restaurant, giving us multiple opportunities to eat there. We were given fresh tigelle in the mornings, which is a local bread my grandmother used to make, and having it again was like being home. The manager was so polite and when I ordered wine to drink up on the patio each night, he poured me a very large glass.

I'm not even sure where to begin about the restaurant itself. The mushrooms are huge and exquisite, the tortelloni (dished out from a large dish, and I'm sure we could have had more if we had asked) was so good that I literally shed a tear, and when we were finished with our delicious zuppa inglese, he set down four bottles of alcohol (limoncello, grappa, etc) and walked away. This place was so amazing that I'm still contemplating getting a job there, just so I can eat the food. This is literally the best meal I've ever had in a restaurant. If you get the opportunity to go, you will only be sorry to have it end.

The restaurant is in the lovely hills above modena and during summer weekends you seriously need to book in advance. The place was really full! Despite that, the service was very quick and the food was amazing. On sundays, since it is so full, you have a fixed menu. Do you think it's a problem? we had: starters with fresh mushrooms and parmisan shaves salad, assorted crostini with all you can imagine on top. Three different "primi" including risotto with mushrooms, tortelloni ricotta and spinach, rosette with ham and cheese. Then "second" come.... the waiter will walk around with a giant tray covered with all sorts of meat, including fried chicken, roasted rabbit, roasted pork ribs, roasted pork....all served with roasted potates and friend zucchini, fried mushrooms, roasted mushrooms.... Then of course if you survive...dessert! They will bring a few different home made cakes and offer for some extra dessert also home made like crema catalana, panna cotta, tiramisu etc.. Everything comes with wine and water and at the end of the meal coffee and a selection of local liquers. Seriously: it is a MUST GO.
