High quality of food, excellent combination of flavors and cooking to perfection!

I found this restaurant online during one of my numerous trips to Sicily and It was a very nice surprise! Staff was very welcoming and attentive, the atmosphere of the restaurant warm and service very quick. But most important: a wide wine list was paired with AMAZING FOOD!

We had heard about the restaurant whilst in the UK, and when our hosts in Modica recommend eating here we made a reservation. The restaurant was busy and smart and the waiters attentive. We were looking forward to local dishes but did not find them well presented or that special. Although all tables were taken, the restaurant was very soulless... More

Ate here on our first night in Modica. Staff were attentive but not pushy. We arrived early , about 8 and it was quiet but filled up with locals as the night went on so the atmosphere developed. Food was excellent - fresh and flavoursome and portions didn't over face you. Wine was fantastic. Overall good value for money. Really... More

Although we were staying in Modica Bassa the reviews of this restaurant, situated in Modica Alta, persuaded us to venture up the steep slopes for what we hoped would be our highlight meal of our stay. We were not disappointed! The restaurant, hidden away down an alley, may not be the most atmospheric one in the world but the food... More

I came with a group of friends. We were immediately sat in a large table in a very comfortable room (all for ourselves). The choice of food was original yet typical and very well explained by our waiter. We enjoyed a tasty meal, served and presented with care. I like the food and service, I would personally do something about... More

Beautiful, fresh restaurant, with young and enthusiastic owners and staff. Modern take on Sicilian food, which was both delicious and graciously served, as well as reasonably priced. English language menu and English spoken. Cannot recommend highly enough!

We had a very good dinner at La Locanda del Colonnello, which is associated with and a block from our hotel (Palazzo Failla). Had delicious grilled octopus, deconstruction of eggplant parmesan, fish, and pork with mashed potatoes, plus a cigar version of cannolo.

Since it was right next to where we were staying and the food, service and value were so good we must have had at least 10 dinners during our stay. It is located up an alleyway in the upper part of the old town and there is both interior and exterior seating available. The service is superb, quick and efficient... More
