Was on holiday all over Italy for two weeks and I think this may have been my favourite meal.

Traditional great tasting food, friendly service.

Fantastic value.

If I ever return to Modena I will be eating here again

We had the tasting menu #2, for 33 euro per person but more of a tasting menu it was a feasting menu! All dishes were big and great, but the gnocchi with pumpkin was amazing, also the pork ribs.

Although group dining is usually mediocre because of the number of people needing to be served in a limited time, Il Fantino offered us personal and efficient service, with delicious local specialities, both savory and sweet, with good wine and delicious liqueurs ...especially the walnut liqueur (Nocino)!

The quantities were copious - some of us had been forewarned and paced ourselves! - and the hot dishes stayed hot and the cold meats were as they should be! Particularly interesting were the hot breads - gnocco fritto and tigelle.

I just wish we had had more time to do the meal justice!

One of the best services, delicious pasta, awesome wine. Everything was fresh, hot and well prepared and done. Favourite restaurant of the trip!

Pasta of the day was a combination of carbonara with peas, and I never eaten anything more delicious.
