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

Best service in a while. We had the menu turistico for 15 EUR including water and three dishes. Very tasty, fast and not so crowdy.

We chose to eat here for convenience and also because of items seen on the posted menu. Though the atmosphere was a bit formal, the food was delicious and the service professional. Couscous with fish is a local speciality.

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 (...

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.
