This is a tiny but great place to eat a real italian pasta, madr by the kind lady that serves you also. Get a plate full of grana padano cheese, with the most wonderful “aceto”, you won’t be regret!

Go to "La Frasca" is eat well but you have to follow what the owner/chef/waitress say to you. You will enjoy every minute, just one thing. It could be a lil expensive but totally worth it

Food is amazing, very fresh, typical and good Italian food, but what makes this restaurant special is the owner/chef. She is totally crazy and does a funny show during the entire evening with stories, joking....for sure it´s very good option to visit in Modena.
