Cheap set menu - mean portions - will not return

Have eaten here twice on budget weekends away. The first time was okay, the second, not really! The €15,00 set menu was served at breakneck speed and was mean to say the least. One individual stem of broccoli and two potato wedges was the contorno - enough said. I would rather they... read more

I visited here for a wonderful and tipical price fixed menu ( Menu tipico) of Cuscusu ( couscous) with fresh fish, and a delightful Involtini di pesce spada ( swordfish rolled in breadcrumbs and wrapped in cheese) as well as a Cassata Siciliana (the famous cake) all for 20 euro..I added an antipasto of fresh artichokes( carciofi) and Caponata (...

But we could not settle within €30 only €41,50 checkout. Coffee was there at but could just pay. NEVER... More

The best thing about this restaurant was the service. The food was just about ok, but the whole place feels very dated.

The picture features is not a picture of this restaurant. The restaurant is very classy inside with chandeliers, but it is not modern looking like this picture. The waiter is extremely attentive. This is a "plate" restaurant which means that if you get the house meal (look for a B.R. on the menu) you will get a special plate to... More

i stayed three days at the Moderno and enjoyed my room and the provided breakfasts very much.This is an affordable and quiet comfortable hotel at the center of everything in this ancient town. include Erice in your tour of Sicily as there is no place like it on earth, a place in the sky that time has forgotten.

We stayed three nights at the Moderno Hotel, having dinner twice in their restaurant. We were quite pleased with the dishes we ordered, particularly the buciate, the TR specialty. I considered our food among the best I ever had in Italy, and I'm surprised to see other reviewers were disappointed. Il gallese

We only had a snack on our way out of Erice at this place...thank God! We had a couple of local savoury stuffed pastry buns - one had spinach in it which was just utterly bitter while the coffees were terrible. Staff vacuumed around our table, even if they were open to the public and smiles just don't seem to... More
