Many pizza options, handmade in wood oven. Huge place, so (probably) no reservation needed. The one with arctichokes was superb. 10€ each.

As part of a day in Modica we visited La Contea. It is tucked away down a back alley but do not let that put you off. The food, service and local beers were exceptional and I would highly recommend a visit.

Great for the family sitting in the alleyway. Wide choice of food and pizzas although ravioli had run out that nearly caused 5 year old meltdown. Lovely wine and the kid's portion not as small as they suggested. Great value too.

It is great experience when the waiter tell you that you are ordering too much food for the children.. and don't try to sell you the most expensive wine but recommends the best. The food is great and the atmosphere is Italian intimate. Hereby recommended

A friendly welcome and tables in a side street close to the Via Marchesa Tedeschi. A very wide range of pizzas, as well as pasta, meat and fish dishes. The wild boar pizza had generous amounts of wild boar prosciutto, parmesan shavings and rocket. There were a couple of options of half bottles of red, and the Cerasuolo was a... More

Fantastic value pizza (roughly 5-10 euros) and good service. Gluten free base was really good and would definitely recommend for celiacs. The tomato salad was amazing! Would return.

Every year when visiting our lovely Modica La Contea is one of our first stops for a good meal. The owners are friendly, the setting is amazing (choose the seating in the little side street not main street!), food is fantastic and prices unbeatable. It gets packed with late locals dining but they are always able to find us a... More
