Modena Wine Cafe is a model for quality cuisine
Among other claims to fame, Modena, Italy, is home to legendary automakers Ferrari and Lamborghini. The city also lends its name to Longmont's Modena Wine Cafe, a combination eatery, bar and coffeehouse. It's a thoroughly modern spot whose vibrant colors and sleek stainless and glass wine-dispensing apparatus are reminiscent of cutting-edge Italian industrial design.
Despite its name, Modena offers much more than Italian fare. More than a dozen tapas plates make for an eclectic menu encompassing antipasto, chorizo street tacos and Korean barbecued wings, with gluten-free crackers available as an accompaniment for $2.

Oh So Good
"Had dinner with a friend this evening at Modena and we were both very impressed with the entire experience. Atmosphere is pleasant and relaxing. Our server was great, just the right amount of attentiveness - never leaving us too long but not hovering either. We enjoyed a tapas plate, glass of wine, and some amazing dinner entrees - highly recommend both the chicken breast, which was stuffed and then baked in puff pastry and served on a bed of winter squash risotto; and the shrimp and grits. Very tasty and highly satisfying!"
