When it comes to Osteria Francescana, everyone knows the website gets stuck and it's nearly impossible to get a reservation once that happens. Therefore, I had some problems as well. However, here I am, sharing my experience. So, it's safe to say that we've scored...More

We were lucky in multiple ways. 1. We were able to get this impossible-to-get reservation in the 2 day window that we had in Modena because we stayed up until 4AM EST and spam refreshed their website. 2. We were offered a 12-course menu (250...More

Absolutely sensational. If you don't want to be challenged, this might not be the place for you. But if you do, prepare to be taken aback by pure genius. Everything was fantastic; the service, the presentation, and of course, the flavors. I hope to return...More

Tripadvisor shows this restaurant open on Mondays. The Restaurant's website shows it closed on Sunday and Monday. Which is correct? Thanks.

Hello, I think I've just managed to make a reservation for lunch, as the site told me I've been added to the "reservation list." But I have not yet received an email confirmation. I then put my name on the dinner waitlist and got the waitlist email immediately. Now I'm worried I mistyped my email for the potential lunch slot. Has anyone had a similar experience or has any suggestions? Thank you
