“Probably best fish restaurant in Pordenone centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013 via mobile

Have dined at Moderno quite a few times in the last couple of years.
It is located in the city centre and is an hotel restaurant.
It is more a business place, but has also a stable local clientele of fish lovers, middle aged, not a young crowd hang-out.
The dining area is quite classic and traditional. The service is very professional, perhaps a stiff, but friendly and honest.
Considered by many customers as the best fish restaurant in Pordenone at the moment. Excellent cold fish starters. Good wind choice.
Excellent fish choice, in a quite neutral anonymous ambience.
Recommended.

“Early Bird Seating on a Cruise Ship”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

The entire experience at this restaurant can be described as being at the early bird seating on a cruise ship. My husband and I chose this place because of the TA reviews and ranking, and because we missed our reservation at another restaurant because of a late babysitter. The interior- which was quite dated, the service- which was a single server pushing food around on a wheeled cart, and the patrons- older folks, was just not quite what we were looking for in our night out without our baby.

We were given a menu in English, from which we ordered, not knowing that everyone around us had received a different version in Italian. We looked longingly at the plates of oysters and pasta being eaten at other tables. I'm not sure if this was done because they keep a standard menu in English that never gets updated or what.... It was disappointing.

The appetizer of tuna tartare was fine, and the salt baked snapper was very good. The owner picked out an excellent bottle of red wine for us, it was definitely the highlight of the meal. The service was also fine, although I would have loved to try some of the fresh cheese that was being served to every other table, but wasn't given the option by the server or owner.

“Excellent Fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

This is one of the better fish restaurants in the area, coupled with excellent service. Very good wines from the local region, served by very profesional waiter (looks like Jean Reno!!!). Only sore point is the interior of the restaurant, which is a bit 70ish and not very intimate, cozy. But the service and quality of food make up this little sore point..

“Stately Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Have you every watched two professional white-gloved waiters handle an entire dining room to perfection? Then come to the Moderno, the more stately and staid restaurant in Pordenone with the most incredible fish and wine selections.
