Best meal of our trip. Very romantic restaurant

Wonderful high end gourmet restaurant. Very attentive service. Made gluten free substitutions (including GF french bread). The parmesan soup is their specialty. Their forest mushroom risotto with fontina cheese & summer truffles is the best risotto I've ever had.

The Ritz treats everyone like a VIP and it was nice to have that level of service after a poor start to our trip. The food at Fantino is great- try the filet mignon, it's amazing. The entire staff waits on you... More

My husband and I are very critical and focused on detail specially when it comes to fine dinning. We were very pleased with our experience in Fantino. Enjoyed every single dish and had a great service. Romantic and intimate ambience. Definitely recommend
