The chief is the best! He recommended his best specialties, we tried it and we loved it. This is a nice & friendly local restaurant serving delicious Sicilian food (and drinks).

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

We visited this place, thanks to the reviews on TripAdvisor, and found them to be very accurate:) The food was good, prepared in a home manner, very fresh and authentic. It is a family restaurant with the father taking orders and serving most of the food and that adds up to its charm. He was very talkative and explained what... More

We've been here following TripAdvisor suggestions and it was a good choice. The owner is friendly and ready to explain details about local food and history. The Trattoria is not in the center of Modica so you'd better have a GPS to find it. We've chosen ravioli di ricotta, involtini, salsiccia and the previous unknown 'sanapo', a local vegetable similar... More

This trattoria was recommended by my brother who lives in Catania. He told us not to be put off by its location but we would experience delicious, unpretentious home cooking. Speaking no Italian, we thought it was going to be difficult but the wonderful owner sat down at the table with his computer and we conversed through google translator. We... More

Local food at its best. Friendly helpful owner who guided us through what they had to offer. Very good value for money. Don't be put off if it looks closed.Try the door, like some other Italian restaurants it looks closed.

Location is really bad, when we saw the place we considered going somewhere else. Once through the door we were still having doubts about staying, then Roberto, the big friendly owner, started explaining the menu, we ordered, the full bodied dark red 14 degrees local house wine arrived, the antipasti followed (we ordered far too many...) and when the "ravioli...

We had Sunday lunch at this family-run Trattoria in Modica during January. Its anything but fancy but good home cooked food prepared by the owners wife. The ravioli and meat balls with artichokes were excellent as was the house wine and the tiramisu - all home cooked. the service was excellent and the prices reasonable
