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!!!!

This is our favorite dining place before enjoying and walking over to a show at the Gallo Center for the Arts. A great variety of foods that can and should be shared around the table. Good selection of wines by the glass.

Concetta's is a tapa style restaurant. Which means everything is served in small appetizer size portions. That is where the fun begins. I suggest you go in a group and start by picking something to drink from the awesome wine and beer selection. Then just begin ordering from the menu. The menu changes from month to month so it is...

The wait staff before taking our order dutifully advised us, as first time diners, about their serving style. Their style is tapas bar style. The dishes are small and they come to the table one dish at a time. This leaves you plenty of time to enjoy conversations with your dining mates while sipping on some wine and taking bites... More

After reading the reviews, we selected Concetta for lunch. I met my friend and he was already having a drink. I sat and waited for ten minutes for the staff to re-greeted us. I must be watching too much Gordon Ramsey shows do I have begun to be critical regarding other things besides the food. The place was dirty and... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Modesto, and compares favorably to many that we have visited in SF and France. The menu is for "small bites," and the wine selection and beer selection is top notch. Sometimes noisy, but always friendly (customers and staff), this is a place that deserves your attention.

We have eaten there several times and have enjoyed the experience with friends and family. It is fun ordering several different menu items to share. The items on the menu are unique and not found in your average restaurant. We highly recommend Concetta.
