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

If you are tired of the noisy expensive and touristic restaurants in Taormina then you should try this. The menu has options for pasta, fish and meat. We ordered 1 beef steak for 15€ , chicken fillet for 10€ which were very good. Unfortunately we ordered side dishes for our main courses, some potatoes and grilled vegetables which were cold... More

Tucked away from the main tourist street is Vineria Modi. A small informal restaurant run by a young enthusiastic team. The food was very good, The selection was not huge but covered all tastes. We all had fish which was very good. Staff was very friendly and very caring about all your needs. Definitely a place to recommend to go... More

We had a delicious meal here for a reasonable price and enjoyed sitting outside on the street. The ambiance improves significantly when the 2 stores across the narrow street close up and turn off their very bright flourescent lights. We also asked the restaurant to angle their own flourescent light away from the table.

The three courses of food we had was some best we ate whilst in Sicily. The service was exceptionally good. The bill was very reasonable considering the quantity and quality of the food we had. Would definitely recommend.

We found this restaurant when walking about one afternoon. The menu was more concise than many of the really touristy places and looked like it hadn't been printed 10 years ago unlike many other places in Taormina! We weren't disappointed when we returned for dinner the following evening. Amazing bread basket selection, the pasta course is big enough to share... More

We are normaly trip adviser reviewers before heading out for dinner, however with the alley ways and numerous restaurants we found some of the locations difficult to find. So we chanced on this place, it was busy which is always a great sign, and the food, service and wine did not disappoint. Would highly recommend the tuna and the linguine... More
