The restaurant is located in "high Modica" hence, not so easy to get it but the effort is definitely worthy! Even though i would classify as "gourmet" this restaurant ( because of the high quality and care of the dishes offered), quantities are abundant and at the end of the meal you will be as much stuffed as delighted. The... More

We ate here on our first night in the city and were quite breathless when we finally reached the top of Modica Alta. But once we were seated in the intimate courtyard, and the waiter brought out a lovely basket of breads baked by the chef plus delicious oil, we were all smiles. My appetizer seemed quite simple: a piece... More

The Locanda offers delicious cuisine with extremely fresh ingredients and a modern twist. The appetizers, fish and pasta were all wonderful. We would... More

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.
