“Nice pasta, nasty waiters”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

We ate here one evening Its in a good spot by the ferry,near the lake and looks like it may be part of Hotel Eden However we didn’t enjoy the experience as much as we expected from Trip Advisor reviews It was spoiled somewhat by the unpleasant,unfriendly waiters (in particular the little one!) albeit smart in their matching pink polos
Anyway we didn’t go back again choosing to go back to the San Lorenxzo where we had good service,nice pasta and fish and a pleasant experience!

“Clients should be treated better!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

We managed to get a great table right at the drone, service was fast and friendly. My spaghetti alle vongole was tasty and just what I wanted. The house white wine was good. My husband's chicken salad was awful, leathery chicken and not appetising. However, we were seated there for almost an hour and noticed so many clients being refused tables at the front because they were for 4 people not 2 but then 5 minutes later give the table to 2 people. It kept happening and people were being told the tables were reserved and turned away, only for 2 people to turn up and ask for a table and given it. They were being very selective, not what a restaurant is about, they should be glad people want to eat there. The client is king!

“Great food.. too good to miss!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

We ate here three times on our trip. The menu is varied enough not to get bored of.

It is a large busy restaurant and one night we saw people queuing but the waiters worked hard to clear the tables and seat people asap.

Everything we ate was of the finest quality, cooked well and full of flavour.

Waiters are always on the go but never too busy to make a recommendation. Don't miss it!

“Location is super, staff is horribly rude”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Because of the perfect location where Modi is situated it is very busy. The food is fine, nothing wrong with it.
The employees though, are terrible. Very rude, impatient, impossible to get their attention to order something. Overal very very rude. When I asked why there was €7,50 "Colporta" on the bill (I was unfamiliar with this, but apparently very few restaurants charge this in Italy for table setting, bread etc) the answer was "Government taxes" and the waiter grabbed the money and walked away. Besides that it was a lie, he could have wished us a nice evening or asked us to come again soon. How about never? I deeply regret leaving a tip, which he grabbed as well.
Bitter aftertaste. Thankfully there are many options in Sirmione to get a Pizza, I will never ever eat at Modi again.
