I first visited da Danilo more than 20 years ago and try to do so any time I am in Modena. Family run, it offers a fantastic selection of all that is good about Italian food freshly prepared. Bollito, a local speciality of slow boiled selection of meats is a highlight. Good service and good food what's not to like.

We tried to get in on a Thursday evening but hadn't booked and they were full. We went back on a Saturday night, having booked this time. There's your warning, make sure you book to avoid disappointment! No criticisms of the place at all. Service, ambience, food and prices were all excellent. The serve yourself salad bar is great as...

Our waiter was excellent recommending great dishes for us to try and share. Lots of fun and very traditional Modena food experience tiramisu was exceptional and so unique.

We went to this restaurant after it was recommended by a friend. We ended up eating here twice during our visit to Modena! Food is very very good and staff are also very friendly especially Claudio! Attached are photos of our food on both nights - both very good! Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Modena!

Old world charm with Pavarotti smiling down on the happy diners. The service is very good and discrete as fits the old world elegance. The food is true to its description with delicate flavours, fresh and very tasty the wine list is limited but briars in its scope. Be confident to try the house wines. All in all a very... More

Recently went here after staying in Modena for 10 days. My friends ordered a soup and the tortellini with ricotta and spinach, and I ordered the gnocchi with red sauce. My friends thought their meals were alright, but my gnocchi was 3 minutes overcooked and had the consistency of mashed potatoes. When I sent the meal back, I told them... More

Modena is not the most beautiful or exciting of places to visit but it has a culinary gem called da Danilo. We found this place by chance by the flavour of the food is still on my lips. The restaurant has a traditional feel to it but offers a mix of modern and classic dishes. The roast suckling pig rates... More
