Went in passing by the street and spent fifteen minutes looking around all this small shop's delicacies! The owner is very helpful and explains all you want to know about the products. And you can taste any cheese you might fancy as well! A cheese lover's dream!

Giorgio is an most accommodating shop owner. Very giving of his time and knowledge in English also. He is very passionate about the local products he carries. He also provides samples to help you make your selection. Quality wines, meats and cheese are to be had here. I highly recommend a visit to his Casa del Formaggio when in Modica.... More

This small shop is deceiving on the outside but once inside your senses come a live. This traditional spot is filled with cured meats, cheeses, spreads and marmalades, capers, pesto, liquors...and the famous chocolate from the area. The products are all of great quality and local, considering the quality they are not over priced. What makes this place very special... More

The owner was very helpful and spoke excellent English, he let you try any cheese or meat you requested and even vacuum packed your purchases for the flight home. Prices were excellent and I can't wait to return. Thank you

If you are into high quality cheese (or salumi) this is the place for you. The owner takes great pride in sourcing his cheeses (and I'm sure for all the products he carries) directly from the small farms that produce the best of its kind. He was generous with his time in educating us about the Sicilian cheese. No wonder... More

The owner was so knowledgeable, approachable and generous to us. Went a few days in a row for our cheese, salami, vino and snacks. Must drop by if you're in the area

The young man serving spoke great English and told me all about the local cheese. The prices were very good. We tasted some cheese and once chosen our cheese was vacuum packed to travel. We. Also tasted several flavours of chocolate before buying. We would recommend this place to anyone.
