If it has happened or it will happen to you to go around Modena and you are a person that take care of details, you will not miss to see a sign located outside the windows of some shops, bars or restaurant, which over time has hit me. I’m talking about the signs where it was written: “Bottega Storica dell’Emilia Romagna” (The Historical Shop of Emilia Romagna), but what are they?
I love to make experiments, especially when they are about food! When I travel, I like to know the places where I go also by tasting local specialties. Through food, in fact, you can get in touch with other cultures and learn so many things! Indeed, I like the idea of eating in the ethnic restaurants of my city and when I find one I’ve never tried before, I can’t resist, I go! You can travel remaining sitting at your table 🙂
Ready to leave? Here we go!
Some people prefer drink coffe only in the morning or after their lunch, others several times during the day. Then, there is who prefers drink its cup at home and who loves sitting in a café and have coffee reading the newspaper: in any way you love to drink it, coffee is a kind of ritual for Italian people! So, if you are in the centre of the city and you need a good cup of coffee, I write you about 5 café in Modena to go 🙂
There are special places where to go at least once in your life… they are places to see, to live, to taste.
Every city has ones. They are not simply traditional restaurants in Modena, but they are commercial activities and people that did the story of the city telling its identity through the foods that every day come out from their kitchens.
I’ve collected them in this post because I think they deserve a special mention and a particular place in my heart 😉
These are 6 traditional restaurants in Modena centre where to eat at least once in your life.
I attend the Trattoria Barchetta in Campogalliano, Modena, for over 10 years, I suppose. It’s one of the restaurant I choose to give me a special lunch.
I usually spend in Campogalliano a few days of my week for work and I have learned to discover its more interesting places.
Campogalliano is a town in the province of Modena, located west of the city. I will probably tell you about this pretty town in the future but now I want to talk you about “Barchetta”, a restaurant (“trattoria”, in Italian) of the many suggestions.
The concept of “brunch” has always attracted me. It comes from afar and the word “br-unch” perfectly expresses the mixture of breakfast and lunch. It is an imported tradition, but I like the idea of “having a brunch” also in Modena and so I’ll tell you my experience.
