We were in Modena for the weekend specifically to eat at Osteria Franciscana and chose to eat at Antica Moka the other night of our stay. The place is lovely and feels special and cosy and but not pretentious. We chose the traditional tasting menu as we wanted to try the specialities of the region and were were stuffed but... More

We did the Journey in Taste tasting menu with wine to suit. A high price, but a fabulous experience.

Great food! Make sure you meet the owner as well if she's there. Lovely lady. Try their traditional dessert and the maiolo. One of the best establishments in the whole area.

Although the service was superb, we had high expectations from the food after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. Unfortunately they were not met. The pasta dishes ranged from bland to strange, and the chicken was dry. We decided to skip desert.

Came here after i saw it on a TV program with 2 chefs. The lunch was great and every dish seems like a work of art and tasted like heaven. Service was also wonderful I'm already waiting for the next visit

As most of you know, the most recent 'Best Restaurant in the World' is in Modena. As in Cooenhagen, these titles tend to lift all boats and you see some really good restaurants in the same vicinity as the 'Best'. Antika Moka is on the periphery of Modena and is accessible by car or taxi. The food is exquisitely prepared... More

We had the gnocchi fritto with ham as starter and then strawberry risotto which was just delicious. Food very well decorated for your eyes appreciation too. Pear tart with... More

Been at Antica Moka with a friend. Firstly I can easilly say that the restaurant deserves the michelin star. We had their menu and were very satisfied. Ambient is wonderfull, the staff is exceptional. Their wine list is a bible, not to speak of their own inhouse produced aceto balsamico. The prices are very honest! Highly reccomend!
