A real pizza

If you are around Modica this pizzeria is definately a must go, a truly old fashion pizza. Quality is good compared the average prices. Avoid weekends, is overcrowded, better go during weekdays and don't forget to book the table!! Is on my to go list everytime I go back home.

We spotted this restaurant because it looked popular and there were lovely looking pizzas. Their food was nice - not only the pizzas, but also the fish, pastas and salads. It does decent, homely food for a good price and we also had some lovely wine. The waiters were friendly. Service was good while sometimes slow. This didn't stop us... More

Great menu, endless varieties of pizza, with a whole range of toppings. Good starters and desserts. Nice atmosphere and location, and fantastic local wines - all at a good price.

This is a very popular pizzeria in a narrow street in the very centre of Modica . It' s totally fulled with locals from about 20.30 to 22h . The pizza is just average , but the ambiance is totally extraordinary , just the one you are expecting to find in Sicily . Prices are ridiculous . Nothing in the... More

This is a good pizza restaurant that was recommended to us by our local friends. It's relaxed and it was a convenient place for us to eat, especially on a Monday night when nany other places were closed. Highly recommended!

We'd been given this recommendation by a local when we were seeking shelter from a estorm and understood this place to be a local favourite. It appears to consist of a number of interlocking rooms and quickly filled up with locals. We had an antipasto rustico that was good as was a vegetarian pizza that was very burnt but quickly...

Apparently this is locals' favorite type of restaurant, with a low-key interior in a narrow alley. Sometimes they also serve lunch (maybe on an irregular base, I don't know).

Very popular pizzeria, cheap with friendly staff in a simple genuine ambiance, ten euro per person. Not to miss.

The host of our B&B suggested this place, so we gave it a try. We had two pizzas (one prosciutto, one ricotta/spinaci), a large salad, large acqua frizzante, and mezzo of red wine for 27 euros. If we had room for more food after all that, we would have tested the chocolate pizza that our neighbors (two pleasant italian dudes)... More

We had a local recommendation to try this restaurant. There were lots of tables in the alley way, so we sat outside. Our waiter spoke good English and helped us through the menu. My wife had a mixed fish dish which she throughly enjoyed, I had a pizza and tend to agree with other reviewers that it was OK, but... More
