This adorable little café serves up some of the best breakfast and sweets in all of Italy- so good it has earned itself a Gambero Rosso award (Italian equivalent of a Michelin star). Located in beautiful central Modica, this is a great place to start or... More

Ice cream was average, as was coffee. The ice cream dishes were frozen solid...which isn't to my preference but maybe the way Sicilians do it!?

A great atmosphere and friendly staff are just two of the assets of this cafe. The hot chocolate served here is just out of this world. The pastries were great as well and the cannoli is highly recommended. Don't miss this place.

Lovely bar, we popped in here for an aperitif, went for dinner and found ourselves coming back for a nightcap! Very arty clientele. They do snacks with drinks early evening. Sit outside on the street and watch the world go by.

Wonderful chocolate and very friendly staff. This is a family-run business and it's a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the wonderful chocolate, pastries and gelato. Highly recommended.

In caffe dell'arte we got to meet with one of the best traditional chocolate producer in Modica. The place is a very good meeting point of local people where brioche, granite and cremolata are produced by the owners.

This is a must place to go for a snack... They are well known for their many flavors of chocolate bars. They are all delicious.... The chocolates are different that the chocolates anywhere else. We liked them so much that we bought chocolate bars to bring home. They also have delicious ice creams, coffee and many other sweets. Excellent service... More
