My wife and I were told about this place by a local cheese shop as an authentic Italian country cooking. The place was hard to find but it sure was worth the effort. The pasta was the best we have had and it is all home made in their kitchen. The late Great Pavarotti ate here when he came back home to Modena. There is no menu and the waiter (owner's son who spoke some English) listed the first course and after finishing the first course, he listed the second course. Both courses (Pasta and Meat) were local dishes and the best we have had. The trattoria was full of local workers and families. We recommend this place highly and we will be back every time we come to Modena.

It's an obscure lil trattoria near Panini museum.

Restaurant La Rana in the middle of the road to Modena. Pavarotti also lived and ate here. It has no menu and has simple home cooked food. We spent €60 for six people.

This is the place to go when you want to know what is a real Trattoria Modenese. The food is fresh, simple, fantastic and all dishes are made from seasonal products.
Tagliatelle al ragu, tortellini alla panna, tortelloni de zucca: home made and hand made pasta are so tasty that you will remember the taste of it! Every time I stay in this area, I go to La Rana.

This restaurant is full of locals and it's worth having lunch there. When you drive there, there is a good chance you miss the restaurant because there is no sign (which is a good sign for food). Cars and trucks are parked next to the restaurant.
