We had mussels for starter, penne with gambas, and a fresh grilled dorade - all was excellent! Reasonable price for fresh fish. Dessert was homemade apple pie - best we ever had! Staff was helpful and friendly and all worked with mix of Italian and English. When asking for wine there was no menu but waiter took me to his... More

Everything costs twice as much as it should at this restaurant. The food is decent but the prices are ridiculous. Outdated menu doesn't reflect actual dishes or prices. No wine list. Poor service even for Italian standards.

Went here for lunch, the waiter had us think there was a prix fix menu, but had clearly just chosen an expensive array of dishes for us. The quality was decent enough but we felt quite scammed when we got the bill--93 euro for lunch!! A total rip off. Travelers beware.

I stopped in here for lunch after looking at menus in several other places. I was the only female in the place, eating solo, but they seated me and eventually brought me a menu. I tried to order swordfish, but they had none today; so I ordered what had just been delivered at the adjacent table ... risotto and fish... More

Stumbled upon this restaurant while out exploring the city of Modena and decided to come back later and try it for dinner. The restaurant is ideal for fish lovers as they don't serve anything else. Be prepared to be flexible with your choice, however, as they only serve what is available fresh that day. The portions were a little on... More

We had a fabulous late lunch in this excellent restaurant. A great place to eat fish - you can select the one you want! We elected to have spaghetti alla scogliere (not sure of the English translation) followed by a shared orate (bream) then deserts all of which were delicious as was the rather fine soave. For 2 of us... More

This well-established restaurant in the centre of Modena delivers quality and freshness, if slightly lacking in the friendly approach. There is an upstairs room in addition to the downstairs. The latter is tastefully wood-paneled and has five round tables; two four seaters, 3 two seaters. The menu here is heavily toward fish. The fish kebab was chosen by dining companions... More
