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!

This is a place where some tourists will mix with many local sicilians. The Pizza is prepared by a friendly team.

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.

Arrived in Catania at 18.40, drove to Modica and went for dinner at 10pm. It was wonderful, the service just first rate and the pizza with sausage, ricotta and truffle oil was unbelievable; plus a salad and all washed down with a lovely bottle of Grillo. And very inexpensive. Do not miss it if you visit Modica.

Every bit as good as the reviews say! We got there at about 8.30 and were almost the only ones there.Ask to sit outside to enjoy the whole atmosphere.by the time we left there must have been over 100 people eating! Magnificent service, the waiter spoke excellent English and took the time to recommend a vegetarian option - he said... More
