I've been to Ristorante Badessa twice now, and am consistently astounded by the quality of the food and the hospitality. The folks running the show really know how to impress clientel, and looking around the dining room, I could easily tell that everybody there was equally as astounded as I was.
The restaurant is clean, the service spot on, and the food is something out of a fairy tale. I recommend you wear long socks, because if not, the wine list will blow them off.
The charm and quality of this restaurant have twice now made me consider moving my entire life to Casalgrande just so I could eat there three times a day.
I will be back again and again and again.

Since we were spending one day in Modena, we had to go to a favorite spot from our last trip there and they did not disappoint. The food was delicious, simple rustic and full of much flavor. The owner's story snout the opening of this restaurant is so moving. I'm very happy for him for their success. Everything is made from scratch and in house. Love this place

The food is amazingly good: very refined and elegant dishes but with fresh and simple ingredients, coming from the nearby places.I enjoyed very much the aromatic oils offered as dressings for the plates.
the atmosphere is pleasing and relaxing! Waiters and waitresses are really kind and professionals.
Although being a bit isolated, is the perfect place for a nice, rich and elegant dinner.
I have been there with my boyfriend, with my family and also with my friends. It suits every occasion!

I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.

I had a group of 17 clients to take out for dinner and I needed to give them an authentic Italian dining experience. Alberto and his team delivered exactly that. At incredible value we had a four course dinner that had all the variety and interest to keep my clients happy and engaged throughout the whole of dinner.

Alberto was clearly passionate about his food and wine and you cant help but get caught up in this. He was incredibly helpful prior to the event in planning the menu and did everything in his power to make the whole experience the best it could be. Thank you!

What a wonderful treat! We had an incredibly delicious and locally sourced lunch, with very kind attention and amazing wine. The space is a wonderful mix of ancient with modern attention to details. Alberto himself graciously served us, and welcomed all our questions. He really helped us understand the local food traditions, and gave us the inside story to his masterpiece; he and his partner have dedicated themselves to creating an authentically wonderful space and deeply Italian meals. It is really worth the adventure.
