Pleasant evening, nothing special

For once, I disagree with others about a Sicilian restaurant. Maybe we had been spoiled, but this was not as special as other meals. We found it a little stodgy, and the cream with a squirt of red sauce for desert was a real let down. I do agree about the view, though!

I selected this restaurant to try based on the Slow Food Osteria d'italia guidebook. It was a hike up to the restaurant in Modica Alta for us from the centro storico but it was totally worth it. It turned out to be the best meal so far in Sicily. We had roasted artichokes with whipped sheep ricotta cheese that was... More

I had a fantastic three-course dinner and wish I could have eaten more as everything was just so delicious. I had a cous-cous salad with prawn, the red mullets and the cuttlefish with caponata. They were all very well presented and tasted great. The personnel was also lovely, waiters with character, smile and courtesy. I could not find any fault... More

We were here for NY'15 dinner. The food menu, wines and service were very good. Scabbard fish, artichoke ravioli and Amberjack with tomato sauce are my favourites of this dinner

The Locando is located in a quiet side street in Modica Alta and before you dine, take five minutes to enjoy the stunning views from the viewing point near to the restaurant. The service is excellent, the setting charming and best of all the menu is a delight, with Sicilian dishes and quality Sicilian wines. The flavours were subtly blended... More

A beautiful location, lovely food & charming service. We sat outside in the courtyard which was delightful but I'm sure the interior would be just as good. This is perfect if you want to try some local Sicilian recipes and don't want to to trudge up & down the steps to the town. Price represented good value for money and... More

Down a vincolo in Modica Alta, modern, swish and stylish. I ate on two successive evenings, the first occasion merited a return visit. Noteworthy was the excellent baccalà, moist, and succulent in a light batter, and heavenly, the ricotta gnocci, a perfectly presented plate, I wish I could emulate at home. On both occasions a table in the courtyard, smiling... More

West in the alto part of the city this hotel restaurant is a welcome rest from all the steps. The interior is calm and cool with an interesting menu and extensive wine list. The staff are attentive and polite. My Sicilian pasta dish was excellent and the panna cotta was perfect. Civilised toilets are always a bonus.
