I had a lunch with my wife and we ordered tasting menu with 70 EUR p.p. From the start to the end, the meals were not only delicious but very well presented. Especially, I loved the potato with octopus, where many small pieces of octopus were packed by fried potato’s thin skin. The pasta with shrimp was also very tasty.... More

We should have listened to our Italian friends... We should have listened to our italian friends both in Modica and elsewhere who told us to skip La Gazza Ladra on our visit to Monica arguing that the restaurant is no longer worthy of its michelin star. We got stubborn, didn't listen to them and went for dinner recently. The ambiance... More

A nice restaurant with some good cooking, but we had the tasting menu and whilst the dishes read well on the menu some were a little 'ordinary' and not what you would expect from a Michelin starred restaurant.

Modica is one of the most beautiful, unspoilt and truly cool towns in all of italy. So your evening starts with a walk ascending the winding and ancient streets up to La Gazza, stopping off at the Cathedral San Giorgio en route. Arriving, we had a couple of beers (Rocca die Conti rocks!) in the hotel bar to cool off... More

We were charmed equally by the food and the attentive service at La Gazza Ladra. We arrived at Hotel Palazzo Failla after a day of driving and were looking forward to dining in the restaurant. We were very happy with the result. We chose from the regular menu rather than the tasting menu and were well satisfied: veal carpaccio, "the... More

The food was excellent and served in style. We went for a smaller number of courses than their full menu, but were presented with a few extra little dishes which excited our taste buds. It made for a very special birthday meal.

Ristorante La Gazza Ladra is situated within the equally gorgeous Hotel Palazzo Failla in Modica Alta. Owned by the Failla family and under the direction of chef David Tamburini this restaurant offers a truly amazing dining experience; well worth its one Michelin star. If you are a food lover and ready to spend good money for good food, then a... More

Pretty little restaurant in the equally pretty Hotel Palazzo Failla. The service was charming, but be prepared not to understand the finer details of your dishes if you don't speak Italian (they do provide an English menu though). We each took three courses (antipasto, primo and secondo) that came after three amuse bouches and a choice of freshly baked bread.... More

This restaurant came highly recommended, from our guide book (being among the top 10 of Sicily) and from a wine maker friend. Arrived on a Sunday, and our car was kindly taken care of by the hotel staff (who were all great!!). Started with some water (and football watching, Juventos against Turino) in the bar and were shown into the... More

We really enjoyed a delicious meal here while staying at the Palazzo Failla next door. Yes, the restaurant was quiet, but the staff were friendly and attentive and everything we ate was delicious - innovative and imaginative cooking and everything beautifully presented. The new chef, who came out to chat to us, is doing a great job. Well worth splashing... More
