We eat here at least once a month and are never disappointed. Wait staff is wonderful and the food and setting are hard to beat.

I arrived later in the evening as the restaurant was closing. There were four people ahead of me just walking in the door. Even though the restaurant was closing for the night the owner still let us all in. He spent significant time at both their table and mine in assisting us in making a wine choice and ensuring that...

OK, the atmosphere is a little on the bare minimum side but the tapas make up for it. The only thing that surprised me was that they had a wine list without appellation or vintage listed--especially considering the owner apparently owned a wine shop down the street. Puzzling indeed.

This is our romantic get away spot. You can leave your cares behind, really relax and enjoy unique and delicious food. I really appreciate the wine selection, you can get great wines by the glass, not the low end most restaurants make you drink if you only want a glass or two.

The best in town! Good ingredients and nicely prepared with a wine list to complement the food. Can't believe that most TA restaurant reviews for Modesto are chains! This is not.

We were staying only one night in Modesto, on our way to Sequoia and Yosemite. I hadn't planned a restaurant ahead of time, so I had to resort to the phone book -- not something I would usually do! What a lucky pick. The host made us feel so welcome, gave us a great table, and served us the best... More

My husband and I are regulars at Concetta. We love the interesting combinations of flavors in the food and the everchanging menu. Also, the atmosphere is very laid back and they have some interesting wines by the glass. On the downside, the service can be slow on busy nights.

Concetta is always a wonderful combination of familiar dishes and new things they are trying out, and everything is amazingly good, and fresh, and surprising. The staff are all fantastic and Paul is usually hanging around to pitch in, to make wine recommendations, or to stop by to chat. If you're in a hurry, then go somewhere else. If you... More

Paul, the owner, will serve you delicious tapas. He takes great pride in offering an eclectic offering of tasty dishes. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

Do yourself a favor and take your money elsewhere if you want to dine out in Modesto during these hard economic times and do not go to this restaurant. My wife and I went here before a concert and I ordered Pizza of the Day(which took a day to get to our table), and my wife ordered Mostaccioli w/Braised Lamb... More
