Our guide for the charming valley town of Modica recommended this small family restaurant for lunch. The menu was thorough and the pasta magnificent. A quiet non-tourist restaurant in the center of town. Family run and obviously appreciated by all the locals.

We had a nice enough meal here but it wasn't really wow factor food. The owners were nice and welcoming. The menu is on a blackboard 4 choices of entrees and mains. Simple clean home cooking.

La Rusticana was recommended to us by our B&B host as somewhere he would visit with friends, but not necessarily on the tourist trail - although with the good Tripadvisor reviews, I am sure it does get its fair share. On our first pass by...More

After many amazing lunches and dinners on Sicily we chose this little Trattoria and we very much enjoyed the simplicity but wonderful owners and other guests. If you want to go off the beaten track, this is the place. We only had locals eat here...More
