I had a lunch there. My first course was vegetable couscous with shellfish, which was quite tasty. My second course was pork sirloin, which was ok but nothing special. The service was professional but somehow lack of warmth.

We stayed 3 nights in Modica, went here on the first night, and liked it so much we went back for the third night. The food was excellent: I particularly enjoyed the octopus, though I guess that's not everyone's favourite! The pasta was very good, as were the main courses. Although there is a wine list with UK price levels,... More

This place is amazing. Nominally a slow food place, it boasts a great wine list of local vineyards and a menu that delivers all the way through. For us, the star of the show was the pasta: simple, delicately flavoured and made with obvious skill and passion. This place stands its own against fine dining restaurants twice the price.

I should start by saying that I speak decent Italian, more than enough to get by in a restaurant. We were recommended this place by people we met whist here on holiday so decided to give it a try. A quick look at the reviews here seemed to back this up. When we arrived, I asked, in Italian, if they... More

This restaurant is super convenient if you're staying at palazzo failla in the upper town. Lovely outdoor terrace which is classy but with friendly, informal service. Wonderful homemade foccaccia with tomato to start. They do wines by the carafe and have an impressive book of local wines and a broad list of wines from across Italy. Our cavatelli with carciofi...

We had three meals here during our stay in Modica, one lunch and two evenings. Each time the food was delicious and perfectly cooked. The staff were friendly and attentive, and the wines they suggested were superb. You might think that a white insolia or a red nero d'Avola are going to be much the same everywhere, but not so;...

Lunch time, made a reservation one day before, very good and helpful service. The food that we ate - delicous! For starters we tried: 1. Octopus with blanched chicory and lentils - yummy! 2. The artichokes with (if i am not mistaken) ricotta cream - good, but a little bit bland, i missed some "x" ingredient in there. For "primi"... More
