Excellent modern Sicilian cooking

We ate here twice during our short stay in Taormina. The food is beautifully cooked and the wines really good - great choice of Sicilian wines. It is a small and nicely decorated restaurant with attentive and friendly staff. We can thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

We had an excellent meal here. The menu is not long but is continually changing. Also do ask for the special of the day. My husband had a white fish carpaccio which was very very good. It's a small place and quiet off the main drag. If only we were staying longer we would go back in a heart beat.... More

We were at the end of our stay in Taormina and just about over "authentic Sicilian" food. I was even contemplating sushi in Sicily! Our hotel recommended Modi after our initial choice turned out to be closed. Lucky us. Modi's although not a large restaurant has a lively and enjoyable atmosphere made even better with the jazz music and the... More

Great restaurant just two minutes off the main strip, Coras Umbertto, in Toarmina. Well worth a visit, lovely Sicillian cuisine served in contemporary style..but not so it looses any taste or authenticity. Great house wines too.

We ate here during our week's holiday in Taormina. Being a very popular holiday place you're not short of choice in Taormina, so we used Trip Advisor to try and find somewhere to go for a birthday meal. This place didn't seem to get a bad review and it's easy to see why. Service was great - they accomodated us... More

The quality here was truly unexpected. Being a weekend and holiday here, we fought the crowds on Corso Umberto to find the correct street to reach Vineria Modi which thankfully is off the main drag. it was located on a quiet street just a block or two off Corso Umberto but seemed miles away. Having alreaady shared a bottle of... More

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
