“Yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

I've spent in this restaurat two excellent nights for a dinner trough an international project. All the dishes were perfect and also the selection of wine. I really enjoyed this experience. If possible, take a sit outside for it's beautiful view of the old part of Modica! I strongly recommend this restaurant.

“Not much good to say”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2011

The place was dead... one other couple, and our family. This was at 8pm.
The server was bored and inattentive.
My husband's Ravioli di Ricotta was tepid and he said it tasted like it had been frozen/processed then microwaved. I didn't even want to try because it looked so unappetizing . My Ravioli di Verdura was better, but not great.
My son ordered the bistecca - and it was ok. Not great.
The Insalata di Pomodoro was excellent - but that's because the tomatoes were in season and full of flavor.

It was a mediocre meal for a very high price. I was surprised to see so many good reviews for this restaurant.

“Delicious and charming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2011

Been there in June 2011, lunchtime.
Very nice place, clean and quiet.
The owner was able to give us all the necessary suggestions being always charming as all the other reviewers are saying.
Great compromise between price and quality.
Suggestion. take the Coniglio alla stimpirana, delicious and soft.

“nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2010

Been there yesterday evening, we were four people. The pasta with pan grattato was nothing special, the antipasti were OK, the dessert below the standards for modica. We probably would not go back.

“Excellent food, beautiful room and location, wonderful service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2010

Fantastic Moroccan/Italian fusion cuisine that reflects the poetic character of the city. A beautiful restaurant with ochre walls and 19th c men's fashion illustrations, flower paintings and lace window armoires. It faces a discretely romantic square tucked away in quaint Modica Alta high above the busy streets of Modica Bassa. The staff was very kind and accommodating. Wonderful place. My favorite restaurant in Modica - and there are many good ones!
They host a lot of concerts, mostly jazz I think: http://www.facebook.com/hosteria.s.benedetto
