Walk up the stairs to the restaurant, you'll be greeted by some fresh seafood. Everyone had different dishes, including a couple prix-fixe 4 course meals in our group. Everyone was completely satisfied with the freshness & the favors. What makes this restaurant special was the little unexpected touches: the starter of white wine for the table, then an additional focaccia basket and ending with the cleansing palate lemon sorbet...all of these were extras they treated us to as part of the whole dining experience. Even more delightfully surprising, this meal with more food was still less expensive and just as fantastic as the meals we had within the Modena city walls. Oh, and the ladies all came away with roses. Note: the art work is novice and whimsical but has its own charm, don't let that be the deciding factor on the master favors of your meal.

Nice welcoming with prosecco and fresh foccacia. Waiters don’t speak much other than Italian, but thats ok. With google translate and some Italian words we managed. Fresh very nice seafood. My wife had an impressive crab soup. The risotto was creamy and rich, but warning don’t have to much or you won’t be able to have a main course. The portions here are more than generous. The whole grilled sea bass was excellent, but maybe enough for two.
Complimentary lemon sorbet in the end.
Practice som Italian phrases and go here

One primi piatti was good but expensive; the other one was too basic for our taste (no sauce at all). Generally, we ate better everywhere else.

We went for lunch and had a wonderful experience. The service was absolutely spot on. When we were seated we were given a complimentary glass of very good prosecco. The menu is reasonably extensive with antipasti, pasta, secondi and desserts as well as pizza. We each had a very good pasta seafood dish that we really enjoyed.

When we were leaving, my wife was given a beautiful red rose which made her happy.

And, the service was excellent!!!!!

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...
