The place itself is very cute, a bit hidden but very simple, good-looking , pleasant. Food great. Waiters very helpful, speaking good english, taking really care of the table. If you are in Modica - this is the best place to eat.

We enjoyed a great evening. Excellent food and a great atmosphere. Around 20 tables - we enjoyed one outside. It is based in a small street. Really worth paying a visit.

We had lunch with our two daughters and the experience was great. The restaurant is in Modica Alta, not far from the San Giovanni church. If you drive there don't go via the Belvedere cause streets are too narrow, follow the main route to Modica Alta and look for the hotel Failla - the restaurant is across the road at... More

We ate at the Locando twice and were always very satisfied with the food, the ambiance and the service. The Lemon Ricotta Gnocchi is heaven on a plate.

I was here with my family and had great experience. Staff is professional and welcoming. The food presentation and quality is excellent, especially if related to the accessible pricing. Definitely good value for money.

The choice of food was excellent and the wine was superb. There is a terrace but, sadly, it began to rain while we were there but the staff shepherded us inside very efficiently.

Came here for lunch. Absolutely amazing meal - would recommend if you are looking for more refined dining in Sicily. And at such a great price! €50 for two courses and a glass of wine for two.

We had such a great time eating our way around Sicily, but the Locanda del Colonello stood out as our best meal. Especially the Pasta Norma - and we tried plenty around our travels to be able to compare!

Tucked away in a side street high above the main tourist drag, Locanda del Colonnello was a great find for us. The staff are warm and friendly. And the ricotta lemon gnocchi was amazing, like nothing I tasted before, in a light broth, wonderfully tasty but light. The bass and tuna were perfectly cooked as was the octopus starter. Paired...

We happened to go to this restaurant as it was recommended on the itinerary of a slow food tour (we weren't on a tour, just used the website recommendation). It was seriously some of the best food I have ever eaten, the restaurant is tucked up way high on the hill of Modica. The service and staff were excellent, every... More
