Reading the negative reviews it's plain to see that people have set themselves up for failure. Don't come here if you're in a rush. Don't expect blazing fast service if the restaurant is full.

My daughter and I met here for dinner not knowing exactly what to expect. Having arrived shortly after they opened, we sat outside on the small enclosed patio with daughter's baby and dog. The staff brought water and a biscuit for the dog while we perused the menu. We ordered olives and wine to start. I had a very nice... More

I have been dining at this decade-old restaurant for a few years. They were serving small plates of food before the current tapas craze even started. I would not call them a Spanish restaurant, as the only items on their menu that may even remotely tie them to Spain may be the mussels with chorizo sausage or some selections with... More

Nice, original restaurant in Modesto which is hard to find. The wait staff is personable and friendly. The menu changes daily. I have gone back and would go again.

I treated several friends to an evening of tapas and pizza. Everything was delicious and nicely presented at a reasonable price. Highly recommend Concetta's for a fun, relaxing meal. (The room we were in was loud mostly due to a screeching baby and poor acoustics.)

Food is good. Different format being a tappas place. Owner is pretty casual, social, fun. Not pretentious that's for sure. I'll happily go back.

I don't think I have enough good things to say about Concetta. It's a treat to have such a gem of a place in Modesto - Modesto should be proud. The food is always consistently amazing - with variations *(hard to find in Modesto), seasonal, local, sustainable and fresh. The small plates are a great way to try more than... More

Order with confidence. Everything (we have tried most) is very well prepared, fresh, and a great presentation. Small plate format is an opportunity to sample and share several dishes. Wine list is extensive. Prices to fit most budgets. Darrell S.

This is a tapas restaurant and the offerings are served on tiny plates, and you keep ordering them!! They are each really extraordinary creations!! It is very, very noisy - concrete floors and no acoustics.. but after a wonderful glass of wine from their extensive wine bar, you just concentrate on Flavor!!!!
