This is the sort of place you find Sicilian families enjoying a good evening meal. Totally unpretentious and welcoming. We had a huge antipasta of aubergine cheese and tomato, followed by ravioli with tomato sauce, then three meats including slow pork with chips and salad. All with a good young rustic red wine. We just made it to ricotta and... More

Honest local food in huge quantities, so beware. Tasty and proudly presented by owner. One of the few places in Sicily where we had meat, though it was hard to say what the three morsels on our plate were exactly. Very relaxed atmosphere. A place for local families.

I recently came here with a large group of well travelled discerning individuals. Everyone loved the superb fresh home made produce, the family atmosphere and the experience of eating REAL Sicilian food. Very friendly people, excellent value for money, highly recommended.

We managed to find the restaurant with the GPS fortunately as it is not in the main town centre and it was worthwhile. The owner was very good and his staff told us about the dishes on the menu and what was typical Sicilian food. As the restaurant was not busy when we got there we had a good chat... More

The owner introduce the menu for you and try to let you taste almost everything on it (as obviously he claims everything is good on it). We believe that but you must choose as the portions are big. We had at least 3 antipasta plates and all of them tasted delicious. The home made ravioli was also very good a... More

This restaurant is family run and the Owner is very friendly and honest. Here is where you will taste the good food of italy cooked at home! Every time we visit Sicily we go there for a meal at least on one of the days we are there. Reasonable price and best of all, La cucina Italiana at its best!... More

We come from Malta! This is a great find!!! We called unbooked based on the remarks on tripadvisor and it turned out to be a great meal particularly the Assaggi suggestions of the restaurant owner. Not expensive at all for all the food and wine we consumed. Great food and definitely will be one place we keep marked on our... More

It was very worth it finding this Trattoria, as it is not in the centre of Modica, so try to park close by to avoid an uphill walk :) the food was simply amazing and for us an extra plus was they serve gluten free dishes - very good :) the owner is very friendly and it was interesting chatting...

We have had the pleasure at vacationing close to the restaurant and able to take advantage of the authentic Sicilian style cooking and choices of deserts. Dining out for us has always been challenging since we are so used to eating quality home made recipes, eating here was no problem and very satisfying. The Owner/Operator of the Trattoria, Roberto, is... More
