Tucked into the rolling farmland of Castlenuovo Rangone in Modena is a restaurant known for its spectacular food, wine, housemade pastas and balsamic vinegar. Taverna Napoleone is a gem of a place where leisurely meals are the rule and families are always welcome.
Lead by sommelier and chef Giuseppe “Beppe” Meschiari, Taverna Napoleone showcases his joyous approach to food and the dining experience. While his personal charm is evident, the restaurant staff extends such gracious hospitality with every meal you’ll want to come back time and again.
With candlelight patio dining or private function rooms, the restaurant offers a space for everyone. But without a doubt, the food is the real star of the show.Carefully prepared and presented with style, each dish bears a unique flavor signature.
One of Beppe’s specialties is Spaghetti con Frutti di Mare, a bountiful pasta dish bursting with langoustines, clams, mussels, calimari, fresh herbs, tomatoes and so much more. Simply spectacular – from its beautiful presentation to its indescribably rich taste. Also outstanding are the made to order risotto dishes, pizza and ravioli.
And if you enjoy wine, but you’re not sure which bottle will complement your dish best, Beppe’s expertise is unparalleled. You’ll learn how and where the wine is produced and leave dinner understanding why his recommendation was the perfect choice for the food presented on your table.
If you like great wine, stay tuned. I’ll be talking with Beppe regularly about Italian wines and sharing his recommendations with you.
