Fodor's Review

Chef/proprietor Massimo Bottura says he learned about food from under his grandmother's table. He's done stints with Adria and Ducasse, takes inspiration from music and literature, and pours all these influences into creating some of the most memorable food in all of Italy while remaining true to his Modenese roots. The restaurant contains only 11 tables; colors are muted, and service superior. Though it's possible to order à la carte, most everyone opts for one of the

three tasting menus—Tradizioni, Classici, and Sensazioni (Traditional, Classic, and Sensational). One of his signature dishes is 5 stagionature di Parmigiano Reggiano (five versions of Parmesan in various stages, served in five different textures and temperatures). His tortellini alla crema is light, delicate, and perhaps the definitive version of this dish.
