Best pizza in town, quick service, scenic terrace

Had pizza here twice: great choice and very quick service. Kind of touristy during summer, but the lovely view of the city of Modica from the terrace in the center makes everything okay again.

Ate here when we really fancied a pizza for an evening meal. It was the local equivalent of Domino's when the food came. With over 82 toppings on option on the menu we should not have been surprised that the food did not really excel for what was an upper average price (based on the local competition). The service was... More

We dropped in late after an exhausting day in Syracuse. My partner had anti pasti and Misto Fritto and I had a 4 cheese pizza - just too many and too confusing to try something more adventurous - and some house wine. We sat outside. It was all good and so was the price. Wouldn't recommend it for a 'special'... More

Four of us went to la Perla and had some of the best pizza we have had in Sicily. There must have been 100 kinds of pizza on offer. We also had some grilled squid that was excellent. The staff is friendly and helpful. We would recommend La Perla for those wanting good pizza and good local food.

A popular pizzeria in the middle of Modica, we went based on a local recommendation. The service at the table was friendly and helpful but the pizzas are very average. I went inside to pay the bill and was confront by a rather hostile lady who treated me with complete distain as I handed over my hard earned cash. People... More

One of the few nice looking restaurants to actually be open in Modica at 7pm on a Sunday. The tomato, mozzarella and basil salad was a lovely starter. We chose meat main courses, the beef steak was nice, the pork a little rubbery but tasty enough. A tip here is to order side dishes to share, two plates of patatine... More

He went out of his way to make us comfortable order a drink and actually got us food earlier . It's a great place to watch... More

Very good seafood antipasti: generous and tasty helpings of octopus and squid. Veal in mushrooms was dreadful : bland and chewy, so we sent it back. Pizza diavola was a much better choice. Nicely situated outside a baroque church in the heart of the town. Good prosecco to wash it all down. Service a bit slow, but friendly enough. Bustling... More
