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.

We visited this restaurant on a Monday evening without a reservation. Although we couldn't have a table in the courtyard we had a lovely seat in one of the rooms which actually gave the impression of being in a courtyard. The restaurant decor is stunning very simple but perfect. The service from all the staff was professional but not at... More

We visited this restaurant because it was recommended by a top Italian chef (the man behind Locanda Locatelli in London). Perhaps we've been spoiled so far but extremely simple, fresh Sicilian cuisine. My starter of tempura courgette flowers with ricotta was stodgy and a bit greasy. I was expecting light batter, but it was heavy and chewy. Main course was... More

The B&B we were staying at in Modica Alta recommended this place to us, describing it as "good Sicilian food with a fine dining presentation". We decided to follow the recommendation and we were definitely not disappointed! What a great find - we managed to get the last table in the courtyard (it gets pretty busy from 8.30pm onwards) and...

My title may seem a bit over the top, but the simple meal my husband and I had here was absolutely outstanding. The simplicity of my grilled white tuna (alalonga) served on a purée of snow peas, with warmed local cherry tomatoes and finely sliced onion was unforgettable. My husband said his black pork-belly was likewise delicious and the lavender... More
