When I was searching for restaurants to have dinner in Modena I started from the very top ones but they were busy. Eventually this restaurant had a place and Im very happy to have tried it! Hostaria Carducci had great reviews but it still exceeded my expectations. Try also the traditional ravioli in brodo-never expected it to be so delicious!

I was looking for a typical Modenese Restaurant for a dinner with foreign friends. I am from Modena and I know very well the authentic flavors of our dishes. I wanted to try a new restaurant and my experience cannot confirm the other reviews. First of all I was really disappointed because you can order "crescentine" (better known as tigelle)... More

Romantique, home-made food, welcoming... Perfect evening! We ate the ham, paster and balsimico porc. Everything was great.

We had visited Carducci five years ago and it was great. On our return we made reservations and six of us went. We had great food (pumpkin pasta) and many other dishes all excellent. It is a great place to have dinner in Modena.

You should try this place! We had dinner twice. First time: braised porkcheeks in balsamico ( really good!) and porkmedallions in Lambrusco sauce ( local sparkling wine). The latter a little bit dry, but still very nice. Second night: She had papardelle with hare and mushroomsauce, very good. I had gnocchi with grappa-truffelsauce. The gnocchi was great but the sauce...... More

A small venue in the historical centre of this world heritage site offering honest traditional fare, even some flight of fancy, in essential, monastic settings - no nonsense décor - polite and timely service, a kind chef who explains the various ingredients and procedures. We tried the parmesan gnocchi in truffle sauce (delicious), the smoked turkey and mushroom salad (very... More

Arrived at Carducci's on a quiet Sunday evening and had a super meal for the family. Great meat platter of anti-pasti for sharing, an asparagus lasagne and tortellini in broth and really good steaks with 2 bottles of wine and coffee (€1.50). Meal for 4 cost €130 - very good value for very high standard of food. Home produced, local... More

Forget the appearance, which is simple and functional. The pasta is a homemade and done to perfection. A 3-year proscuitto couldn't be better. And the tortellini in brodo alone worth a trip to Modena - perfection. Service was excellent and English spoken. Very fair prices, especially given the quality of the food.

Had lunch today there, food was okay. Nothing fancy, maybe i expected more from the place since someone said " One of the best meals I've had in Italy ”. A little expensive as well, 40e for a bottle of water, 2 starter and one cheese plate. Do not recommend. No wifi

Saved by the rain and by the cook, we had a small lunch of traditional pasta dishes. Nice service and decent prices.

The Hostaria Carducci is certainly a point of reference for the kitchen Modenese ; eat us means finding homemade tastes than once , it means savor the genuine tradition and typical of our local Modenese cuisine. All produced by hot bread , fresh pasta .

Why Carducci ? Carducci , a great writer , he personally went into our restaurant. Documents , letters and photos , in recalling its passage .

Defined "workshop historical".

Our family recreates a friendly environment for all types of customers : from couples , to the individual to work, to friends , of course also including the families .
