Top end restaurant - Super wines and knowledgable waiters -

Menu varied and food excellent . A wee bit over formal at times but that did not detract - we ate here twice

When we arrived and were seated at our table we were told to wait as we were on time and they had expected us later. The sommelier was arrogant and rude. When I asked for an aperitif, as one does in all restaurants around the world, he found the need to remind me we were not in a bar. Anyway... More

The restaurant is at the top of Modica, so if you are not trained, better to go there by car from the city centre. The restaurant has a lovely garden were is possible to eat. Unfortunately it was very cloudy and so we had to eat inside. They are anyway well decorated rooms, simple but well maintained. Once we've seated... More

Hidden in a side street you can find this small restaurant in the new town of Modica, their is a short menu with typical choices of local products in the summer I would recommend to eat in the courtyard

This restaurant tucked away in Modica Alta was recommended by our landlady. It has a nice inner terrace. We were making a tour of Sicily and hadn't packed too many nice clothes but even shabbily dressed the waiters were very friendly and professional. The food was excellent and they also have an exquisite winelist. So give yourselves a treat and... More

In early July we ate a delicious, faultless lunch here. We arrived hot, tired & much in need of an un-rushed meal - its a hard climb from the main road that runs through Modica. It was well worth the effort! We arrived shortly before 14:00h - sadly for later guests who arrived shortly after 14:30h the kitchen had closed.... More

For our first night out in Modica we decided to have dinner at this restaurant. We had dinner outside in a minimalistic court yard. Good wine list. We had the Planeta Chardonnay 2012. Starter: shared the mozzarella. Amazing. Very refined. Primi: calamarata with mussels. Nice. Could have been more refined. Secondi: white tuna. Fresh and very nice. Dessert: crispy cigar.... More

Had lunch today after a difficult morning in the baking heat of Sicily. Food was excellent, service great and a wine selection to match. I recommend the quail. Yum

This restaurant is located away from the main areas of the old city and the evening very much felt like a non - touristy experience. The outdoor courtyard was pretty and the service was great. Above all the food was excellent and the value for the quality was exceptional.
