Loved it here!

The food, the wine, the service, the smiley staff, the location, the restaurant. Loved everything about it here. It's not 'cheap' so might be a restaurant to treat yourself to and we did! With 2 courses each for myself and Husband, one desert to share, nice bottle of wine, water, bill was just... read more

We discovered this lovely small restaurant by chance. It is in a quiet side street not far from the Corsa Umberto. The look of it really appealed to us and we were not disappointed. The crab gnocchi and homemade bread selection were especially delicious. The staff were helpful, warm and friendly and we had a lovely relaxed evening.

We have just had lunch at this delightful restaurant and the food was, quite simply, superb. I had the carpaccio of tuna with creamed peas, while my husband had linguine with scampi. Both were out of this world. The staff were charming and very knowledgeable. We shall be returning.

We found this place using trip advisor reviews actually. We did not book in advance but managed to get a table. Otherwise I would recommend to book. The staff is good and helpful but I would say at an average level, not as professional as in our winning restaurant of Taormina Osteria Rosso di Vino. The food was very original... More

Lovely restaurant tucked away slightly off the beaten track and benefitting enormously from that. A well designed and intentioned restaurant with attentive and well-trained staff. The presentation of the food was excellent and the assistance with the wines was precise. Starter (tuna carpaccio) was delicious but my steak was too blue for medium rare and actually a little tough. It... More

We celebrated our engagement at this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The waitress spoke amazing English, very helpful with wine choices, the food was amazing, my fiancé ordered the special, steak with mushrooms and it was a massive good quality piece of steak. The mixed cheese and meat starter was a good size and a great sharing platter. Highly... More

I was expecting really amazing food, but it was okay. I had the calamari crumbed with pistachio, and it lacked real flavour or zing. Maybe it would have been more juicy if the calamari rings were cut thicker ? Hovering waiters didn't help the experience either!

Vineria Modi is on a side street, and from the outside it could be mistaken for just another of the hundreds of restaurants in Taormina. What differentiates Vineria Modi is the quality of its food and the warm, beautiful people who serve you. The seating is outside, and the overall experience is top notch. I loved my appetizer: grilled octopus,... More

This was our last meal in Sicily and was by far the best. Food was of great quality and very well presented. Loved every mouthful. In fact my friend and I didn't speak much during the courses as we were enjoying savouring the tastes too much. The only negative was that we decided to share a cheesecake. Best ever so... More
