#1 Bar Dondi (Pasticceria Dondi)
Serving macchiatone (like a cappuccino but served with less milk) and cannoli with custard made fresh every morning to start a beautiful day.
#2 Trattoria Bianca
Franceschetta58 is the bistro of Osteria Francescana. The food is fantastic and the service is good, you feel like you are at home here. Eat an amazing hamburger, Emilian-style as well as delicious tortellini and salumi mix.
#4 Mon Café
#5 Menomoka Coffee & More
Probably the best coffee in Modena. They have a lot of variety to choose from and I buy my coffee for home from here!masala onion and potato kachoris (pyaz ki kachori) at Rawat Misthan Bhandar in Jaipur. The long glass counter is packed with assorted sweet and savoury pastries.
#6 Mercato Albinelli
This is the central market for Modena’s vegetables, fruits, meats, seafood, cheeses, hams – everything is here! I love to go in the morning before work. I get inspired from the amazing farmers and products – it’s a must-do.
#7 Trattoria Ermes
A beautiful space. They have amazing wines and do fantastic cocktails. I really like one cocktail called Hugo. It’s a must-try! Here is a place to watch the world go by. The amazing Ghirlandina bell tower sits in front of you, you can drink good wines and cocktails – it’s a very romantic place.
#9 Bar Enoteca Ristretto
#10 Cà Cerfogli
About 60km outside Modena, Cà Cerfogli is a beautiful restaurant for a traditional meal. When the autumn season of porcini and truffle arrives, this is the best place to enjoy these fungi done in different ways. I always go to have tortellini with white truffle when in season.
#11 Ristorante Pizzeria Gambero Rosso
Massimo and I always visit for a great pizza and mussels gratinatela.
