This is a small restaurant that provides a big culinary experience. Offering traditional Sicilian fare with a contemporary twist, Vineria Modi is a welcome respite from many of the touristed places in Taormina. A personable and knowledgeable staff helps you navigate the menu and select from their well thought out wine list. Every dish we tried was inventive, delicious, and... More

My wife and I popped in here for a quick lunch and we were not disappointed. I had the spaghetti with sardines. It was beautiful. My wife had the macaroni alla norma. This too was excellent. And a great selection of wines. Definitely worth a visit

We had an excellent time at Vineria Modi. We ordered a good variety of dishes - fish, beef and lamb - as well as starters and desserts and all were excellent. We also received some tasty extras in addition to our order. The waiter was professional and attentive. The restaurant is a bit off the main Street, which in Taormina... More

We came upon this restaurant by chance and were delighted. It is tiny and has a small but excellent menu. There were several local Italians there which is a good sign in a town full of tourists.

The staff are attentive and friendly, with a good knowledge of the menu and the wines. The chef sent out a lovely local fish and herb taster and we had a good selection of breads... More

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
