Our hotel receptionist recommended this restaurant. It is well situated in Modica Bassa. We had a delicious meal. Both chose different risottos which were cooked to order and perfect. The main courses and vegetables were also excellent. This is a small restaurant with a "Nonna"...More

We visited this Trattoria as was recommended by our hotel receptionist. We were very disappointed. The food tasted as if was cooked days ago and was just warmed. Not recommended.

The food was amazingly fresh and delicious. All the staff really nice and friendly. And patient. Their English is poor, but together we communicated with all means, understood eachother and had a lovely time.
