Worth seeking out!

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... read 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.

This restaurant belongs to the Pallazo Failla, and replaces La Gazza Ladra as the main restaurant, and although it is not quite 'fine dining', the food is prepared and presented with thought and care and tastes delicious. The staff are extremely attentive without being intrusive. An added bonus is that food can be served outside on the secluded patio when... More

We stumbled upon locanda del colonnello while looking for a place to have dinner to celebrate our anniversary and we couldn't be happier. We took advantage of the warm, breezy summer evening and took a table in the beautiful patio garden. The service staff were excellent from the moment we walked in; friendly yet professional, attentive without making us uncomfortable.... More

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.
