The location in the heart of Modica Bassa makes this restaurant a great venue !. The vast choices of pizza is quite extraordinary and the fact that most of the diners were Modicani assures the visitor that La Contea is an authentic Sicilian pizza place ! The staff is most courteous ; the food is freshly prepared and the prices... More

Outdoor seating in a tucked away pedestrian street, not too far from the duomo. The pizza I tried, the Pachino, has the local cherry tomatoes, fresh buffalo mozzarella, prosciutto, and basil. It is the best pizza I've had in recent memory, I think mostly due to the freshness of the tomatoes which were in season when I visited. The local... More

We were taken there by our Sicilian friend who said it was his favourite restaurant and we were not disappointed. The interior of the restaurant is classy, even the sink in the toilet is classy!I liked the choice of pizzas and the fact you could order small or large. I ate every bit of my pizza with porcini mushrooms on... More

The pizzeria is set in nice old rooms and the service was good. However the pizzas were average or in fact poor by Italian standards. It was recommended to us by a young receptionist at our hotel and the demographic in the restaurant was definitely young people, who all seem to have a plate of French Fries for a starter... More

Nothing to say to the service and the restaurant. However pizza was average. It's not the best pizza I've ever had. Toppings are of good quality but the pasta in itself isn't great. Plus to my half gave a bad sleep.

We went here twice in our one week stay. The pizzas were great, the main courses and salads were pretty good too. We were a chaotic family of ten including some very small kids and we were seated in a roomy corner and had a very relaxing meal. The waiters were unobtrusive and helpful, not gushing, which was fine.

Dinner at La Contea the night before Easter was a great experience. Full of locals, families and a few tourists we had some of the best pizza ever. Incredible dough and a huge selection of fresh toppings. An attentive waiter who spoke English was definetly an asset. To be recommended!

We dined at this restaurant on our last night in Modica. We wish we had found it sooner. The menu was very reasonably priced & the meals on offer were just lovely. The service offered by the waiter was first class. He was very nice & genuinely interested in making our meal a pleasant experience providing top notch service. This... More

Delicious pizza and fabulous service. A very warm, festive, relaxed atmosphere. We also had a delicious salad and lovely bottles of wine. And the prices were very reasonable. We had such a good time, we returned the next night.
