ACEITAIA MARIA LUIGIA 

While not a restaurant, this tour gives you the experience to visit the place where famous Modena Balsamic Vinegar is made. You learn the history and process of its creation, from the “Cookie Monster Starter” to the years of lineage.  You also become aware of the specific labeling process that occurs to ensure the authenticity of the Balsamic. I would definitely recommend this if you are inerested in learning more about this process, and if you want to try all of the different variations they offer.

OSTERIA FRANCESCANA MARIA LUIGIA 

This three Michelin star restaurant seriously changed my life and tastebuds! I think it might have ruined me from ever having good flavorful food ever again as it was just that amazing. While expensive, this immersive dining experience gives you a look into the presentation of each dish, with its preparation being done right in front of you. You also learn about the history of each dish and the influence it had on Massimo’s life. While everything was beautifully curated, my personal favorites of the night included the Beautiful Psychedelic and the Opps I dropped the lemon tart. They were simply incredible. I highly recommend trying out this amazing restaurant if you have the chance as this 5 hour dining experience allows you to experience flavorful combinations outside of the norm as well as enjoy the company and conversations of people at the communal tables. They also accommodate if you have specific preferences, like vegetarianism.

BREAKFAST AT MARIA LUIGIA 

Even though you will still be feeling full from the previous night, this breakfast is not to be missed. The waiters will show you into the buffet and explain each dish before presenting the option to make your own plate, or try a little bit of everything the way Massimo reccommends. I chose the later and was not disappointed. Everything was simply unique and incredible. Personally, the Cinnamon Rolls, Different Frittatas, and Chocolate Chip Cookies were my favorites of the spread, but I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of trying each dish as well.
