In a city where pork is king, great place to eat some fresh fish! Expect to spend some money, freshness doesn't come cheap! Very friendly staff, english speaking as well.

I discovered this restaurant by chance while being in Modena for business. It was a great discovery. The food was really fresh (fish oriented) and tasty. Great service and staff. Do not hesitate to talk to the manager, he will help you to make your choice in the menu. The carpaccio for the starter is a good one ! We... More

I've been here for a business dinner. Place is quite and nice, people are very kind. We've tried a couple of appetizers..both awesome. Then we've tested two different grilled fishes. Both very good...elaborate but not too much. PRICE is definitely fair enough for the quality...I'd say probably low.

Unlike some of the previous comments, we had no problems with being non-Italian speakers, and they gave us a menu in English. As starters we had squid which came as 4 pieces of tentacles with nothing much for 20 euros (on the bill it was 4 times 5 euros). This was Italian simplicity at its maximum and I could have... More

My husband and I went here for dinner and it was fantastic. The service was great and they were extremely accommodating of our limited Italian. The seafood was fresh well prepared and really lovely. You need to book to get in or be willing to wait. The Tuna and mixed starter are a must!

The fish was so fresh and the preperation so perfect. We had Mussels and Tuna Tartare for starter and they were both wonderful. Mains...we had seared tuna and it was beautiful and cooked to perfection. We also had there seafood platter or salad, not sure exactly what it was called but it was delicious.

The food was good but not great. The portions were very small and the prices pretty high. They don't have a lot of patience with extremely limited Italian. Kind of pushy to sort of get you out of the way. Would not return.

The service could not have been better. Finding excellent seafood in the middle of north italy far from the coast was a big surprise. Brilliant prawns, squid and the vongole as well as the tuna. Was as good as it gets. Wonderful lunch.

Very nice and cozy restaurant in the old town of Modena (close to the hotel Cervetta 5). Very nice small resto, nicely decorated, very nice staff and service. Lots of locals which is a good sign. Really nice fish. I had a starter with shrimps and an asiatique salade, really fresh and nicely presented. My husband tried their homemade gnocci... More
