Old school waiters look after you here with traditional and well cooked fare. Ate in outside area which is very pleasant on balmy evening and enjoyed both our meals. Mid range prices and clearly have a specialty with various boiled meats. Good sweets and coffee.

We went as a group to try out several Italian specialties. Between risotto, tagliatelle, spinach, roast beef, all was great. Owner Danilo is still running the place since 1960!

This small restaurant with delicious food and helpful wait staff is an easy way to spend 2 hours or more in Modena. Be sure to ask for recommendations and they will direct you to local products.

Traditional Modena cuisine such as tortellini and gnocco frito, great local wine and a very welcoming approach. We went twice during a short visit to Modena.
