Welcome to Modena Ristorante

Our Story

Located just outside the historic Marietta Square, Modena ristorante is a true italian restaurant with fresh dishes and a wide selection of wines an cocktails. Modena Owner Andrew Kearton previously worked with the cutting edge and fashionable Italian tire company, Pirelli, for 25 years where he worked globally including 7 years living in northern Italy between Milan, the company’s world headquarters and Lake Como. Andrew’s wife and partner Maritza traveled with Andrew in northern and southern Italy for several years, and this experience inspired the creation of Modena Ristorante Vinoteca and its menu.

About our wine selection

We have a great selection of wines selected from all over the world, with currently over 100 wines to choose from.  These include selections from all across the length and breadth of Italy, but importantly a good selection from the New World in the southern hemisphere, and of course USA jewels on the West Coast; from Paso to Lodi, from Napa to Sonoma and Calistoga and from Oregon to Washington.

From many boutique wineries in Italy we have accrued a wonderful selection ranging from the classical Sangiovese variatals of Tuscany for Chianti, and on to the hills of Peidmont, Veneto, Valle D’Aosta the more unknown treasures of Abruzzo, Lazio and Sicily.

We invite you to take the opportunity to be daring. Move from the “Standard” knowledge of wine and be an educated wine virtuoso!!

Don’t forget, there are awesome Sparkling wines to think of as well: Champagne, Prosecco,  Franciacorta, and Moscato, we have it all.
