“What a great shame...What could be great, just isnt.”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

After many bad experiences in Wetherspoons and various other bars in and around Yeovil, it was a fantastic surprise to find such a welcoming and well presented bar called Modello. We visited when it first opened and we were enthused at how brilliant this place WAS. The burger (£5) was excellent and drink choice reasonably good. The service extremely prompt and very friendly. What a shame that it has drastically gone down hill in just a few months. We entered on a Wednesday around 1pm and was instantly disgusted by the cleanliness. Myself and two others went searching for a table and we were extremely disappointed at tables not being cleared and the flies were all over the food. We FINALLY found a table which wasn't neglected by the waiters/waitresses and sat down, ordered our food (3 x Burgers) and waited...and waited...and gave up the will to wait. We asked the waiter where our food was (after 50 minutes of waiting) where our food was and he told us to sit down, ''it'll be here in one minute''. We thought, although a little rude and abrupt, that's fair enough. What wasn't ''fair enough'', however, was that the food didnt arrive in a minute, instead 30 minutes later. Who would of thought a chef could take 1 hour 20 minutes to make 3 burgers when the restaurant was close to empty. How shocking. It didnt end there, we were still eating and the waiter kept on asking if we have finished. This really angered me as every table around us was uncleared yet he insisted 4 times asking if we had finished our meal. Probably the worst customer service that I have ever encountered, sorry, Modello.

“Great tapas”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

Really lovely tapas, great service and nice atmosphere (although more of a bar than restaurant on weekend).

Been here several times and always lovely tapas, slightly small portions but still great!

“Food choice good, Slow to come out, Staff Miserable”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

Thought I had found a good place to go to for a mid week bite until the past 3 times I've ordered the food and had to wait ages when there was only 2 others eating. Real shame as the menu is good and they have a wide range draught beer and cocktails etc. They have great offers with tapas and drink before 8pm. The staff all look like they don't want to be there. I really hope they SORT IT OUT!!!

“Nice food but the slowest service I've ever experienced”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

I went in there to celebrate a colleague's retirement. I had the vegetarian pizza and it seemed to take an age to produce. What was really niggling was how slow it was to get drinks at the bar. I would think twice about going there again.

On the plus side, the pizza was very good and at £5 (lunchtime offer), so was the price.
