This restaurant deserves more customers - great tuna & seafood linguini! Wonderful homemade bread, oliveoil & extra starter of gamba fish! Go give it a try - a hidden gem.

Everything we had was right. We ordered the wine suggested by our English speaking waiter. It was a Sicilian red and quite nice. We shared the Spicy mussels appetizer. They were luscious and the broth was excellent. Plenty for two. My wife had the pasta with grilled eggplant and like it very much. I had the gnocchi with crab and... More

Ask a local and you'll be told that all restaurants in Taormina are worth a visit. If only that were true. First of all, Taormina is something of a designer focused, A-celebrity, tourist trap. The rest of us are necessary dross in the off season, and that's precisely how most restaurants treat us. Vineria Modi is a rare exception, and... More

This restaurant came recommended from our hotel - Villa Carlotta. We ended up eating here twice. They were warm, welcoming and super helpful to our family. The desserts were amazing!

We had the fish of the day, excellent. The staff was very personable and spoke English which was very helpful. We enjoyed our meal and would recommend this restaurant to other travelers.

During our stay in Taormina we had trouble finding good places, given the high number of restaurants in the streets which all seem to provide the same touristy food. After checking TA we walked to Vineria Modi. At first, we thought the price is a bit expensive compared to all these other places. But then the food was just perfect,... More

Our experience was that most restaurants in Taormina were overpriced and not necessarily that great - your typical tourist trap. What a surprise to wander and find Vineria Modi. The restaurant feels a world away from the main drag and crowds of Corso Umberto. We sat outside and were treated to a FANTASTIC dinner of pork loin covered in pistachio... More

This restaurant is a gem. Found off the main road, it is adorable and you can eat outside. We had the burrata caprese appetizer which was the best I've ever had! For pasta, the linguini in clams were also the best I ever had! The swordfish was thin and fresh and seasoned so well. We loved that as well, although... More

We walked past most of the restaurants in Taormina getting at touristy overpriced vibe wih their plastic menus. We are so happy we stumbled soon this little gem. We couldn't have expected a better experience. The menu was a nice mixture especially if you are getting slightly tired of pizza and pasta. We went with a chicken Caesar salad for... More
