This place is s best for two or more as you get small plates and share. I't almost always busy, and they have a very professional wait staff. It can be noisy on the weekends. The food is great.....new combinations and flavors all the time.

The food is amazing and the staff is so friendly and attentive. Even if you are not a fan of brussel sprouts, you have to try them -- they will change your mind. Have never had a bad item. Recently went with 11 others and sampled lots of dishes - all excellent. Go and enjoy!

This is our go-to place in Modesto for small plates. Always excellently prepared, and served by friendly staff. On our last visit however, we make a mistake in ordering the pizza. It is usually great, but the end product this time was less than we wanted. But everything else was excellent. The mixed greens salad was fresh and tasty. Wine... More

I was so blown away from the amazing experience. From the food, presentation and the atmosphere. Most of the diners seated around our table visited with us and all raved about the food. Highly recommended.

My wife and I enjoy this quant and cozy Modesto local favorite hideaway... Awesome menu and service. It's tapas style. So we order about 4 to 6 different items. They are small place items that vary from pizzas to my favoite Devil Eggs...the spicy shrimp on the top is delicious. The wine list is excellent, and have by the glass,... More

I had the best pizza here. They seemed busy but worth it. The prices are fairly high, so a romantic or special dinner is perfect dinning here. Not somewhere I would bring my children, even though people do. The menu is really unique, adults can appreciate their quality.

First time dining at Concetta and I was taken by the contrasts: lovely murals on the walls but dirt on the ceiling; chipped rim of the plate but wonderful food; staff with long hair hanging down but gleaming, lovely wine glasses. Hmmm....I do love the whole "small plates" movement, allowing me to sample a variety of foods without "poaching" from... More

A friend and I met there for lunch and it was quite busy with people that work downtown. We weren't very hungry as it was hot the day we went. Wanting something on the light side The waitress recommended the Brussels sprouts and said we had to have deviled eggs to go with them. Then we shared an order of... More

This place is better every time we come. Love their roasted beets with farmers cheese, Brussels sprouts with cranberry, but our favorite is the fava bean small plate. Love the new expansion!

I love the changing menu and friendly staff. We prefer to sit at the bar and try new "small plates" offered each night, in addition to our favorites. Anything with their polenta is the best! Be sure to go on a night that the Gallo Center is not drawing a crowd or go after the theater guests have headed off... More
