We stumbled upon the caffe, and were glad we did. We started with melon with prosciutto (tasty as normal) then each had a special pasta - penne with a spicy tomato sauce and some type of noodles in some type of tomato and bacon sauce- outrageously good. Two glasses of Lambrusco and a cherry tart for dessert. Waiter was friendly, prices were reasonable- we really enjoyed our lunch here and highly recommend. Restaurant was full of locals - always a good sign

this is the best restaurant we found during our last visit in Modena.
The vegetarian dish based on zucchini and their flowers was very good and presented very well.
You can order foods suitable for every taste.

Three of us stopped here for lunch, and found lovely friendly efficient servers. I wanted freshly made pasta made on the premises and the waiter told me exactly which was which. I then wanted the sauce of the day, fresh lemon, black olive and oil dressing on fresh tagliatelle and the female chez obliged. The ricotta tortillas were scrummy light ricotta wrapped in super big light pasta. We all shared a plate of Parma ham and local lightly friend flat bread served warm. All in all a perfect typical local lunch. Would recommend.

Stopped at this cafe on 1 May (a holiday in Italy, when most other restaurants were closed). Unexpectedly, the food was quite fresh and tasty. Parma ham and Reggiano cheese served with a side local freshly fried warm bread was a highlight as was the homemade tagliatelle. Attentive service even though it was packed (w/ locales and foreigners). Tried to return, but closed for dinner.

Took 50 minutes to serve lunch (literally 50 minutes waiting). The excuse was there was too many people but we kept seeing other tables getting served. When the food finally came, the pasta was clearly overcooked.
