Known to be a family-run traditional location, the restaurant promotes a quite short and boaring menu, flat and unsatisfactory. Personnel not very hospitable. Not suitable for people-on-the-go. No business cards accepted.

Perfect lunch, if a little too much meat chosen, but this is the place for beef. Courtesy antipasto of small soft white cheese and bruschetta; carne crudo (tartare like); lasagne; fruit with pastry. Red sparkling Lambrusco. True taste of the region and the family's fare.

Just visited friends and discovered a place that brings back the real Italian food and atmosphere that I knew in 1999-2000.

It was kinda roller coaster regarding food quality.Way OVERPRICED for this food quality as we have learnt in next days on Italy trip. It was also unpleasant surprise that we were unable to get any real advice from otherwise kind service lady of what should we order from the menu. I am used to get some advice on signature dishes...

We came here recommended by a great friend from Rome. The tortellini was perfectly cooked and an antipasto sent out by the kitchen was fabulous. The highlight though was the grilled steaks by master chef and host Franco. With his cleaver he literally chopped the steaks to order and put them on the grill. Great food, good service, really authentic!

Osteria del mirasole is a small but really nice restaurant. The food is absolutely great. For each client his meat is cut in the restaurant and grilled at the fireplace. It is simple but great food. I can really recommend this restaurant - you will not be disappointed

Food was fantastic. Had a friend who lives in the area take us. The risotto was amazing. In addition, the meats were cooked perfectly. After dinner get an Affagato. Would highly recommend eating in their outdoor garden if possible.

You will find this rustic trattoria,where owner Franco grills steaks from the region's speciality bovines "the bianca modenese cattle",totally charming and with an obvious great bias towards meat. We always go into romantic-mode when sampling the best of the cows' contribution to culinary expression. Service is great,the ambiance as a trattoria should be...lively,noisy at times,and to be blunt,Italian. Bravo Franco... More
