Very Good Pizza!

This restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating. On a nice evening, it's pleasant to sit outside. Initially, the service was a little slow but the wait staff was pleasant and once we got our food all was forgotten. The pizza was cheesy with good sauce and plenty of topping. The salad was huge... read more

Situated on an apparently quiet road running close to and parallel with the main street, La Contea is one of several restaurants on the Via Grimaldi, which comes into its own in the evening. Given it was October we ate inside where what appears to be a small restaurant expands to reveal several rooms with numerous tables attended on by... More

La Contea is the best pizza restaurant in Modica. The food is great and the service cheerful and efficient. This is the restaurant the locals go to. It is a real family place. On a weekend people are standing in line to get in. If you are not seated by 8:30pm on a Saturday you are in for a wait.... More

We were told this was the best p[izza place in Modica. Located iin a narrow alley , it astonished us by being simply huge inside with many different dining areas. The service was welcoming and quick. My husband loved his meal whilst I found mine average.

Amazing food served up by helpful and friendly staff. It's worth getting off the main road and sit outside at the back. I loved their mussels and chips, their pizzas, and their variety of food. You should try their local wine and beer too. Highly recommended.

One of our best dinners in South Italy took place in here. A small narrow street with special atmosphere. Perfect dinner for good money.

We were advised that on Saturday night it is a local tradition for families to all go out for pizza so with this in mind we booked a table at La Contea. Via Grimaldi is an extremely quiet street in the day but at night is transformed full of tables from bars/restaurants - very lively. La Contea was no exception.... More

When we talk about pizza we should taking into account at least two factors: the base and seasonings, when instead we can considered the taste as personal . If the base of the pizza isn't well leavened it does not swell then it can be considered as commercial pizza. When a place is too frequented and asked because has gained... More

If you are around Modica this pizzeria is definately a must go, a truly old fashion pizza. Quality is good compared the average prices. Avoid weekends, is overcrowded, better go during weekdays and don't forget to book the table!! Is on my to go list everytime I go back home.

We spotted this restaurant because it looked popular and there were lovely looking pizzas. Their food was nice - not only the pizzas, but also the fish, pastas and salads. It does decent, homely food for a good price and we also had some lovely wine. The waiters were friendly. Service was good while sometimes slow. This didn't stop us... More
