I'm italian, therefore you must believe me: if you're looking for the genuine italian food, this is the place.
Here you won't find linguini alfredo or chicken parmesan wich are NOT italian dishes and aren't served at all in Italy, but genuine starters (antipasti), pasta (primi piatti) and main courses.
We got an excellent artichoches salad with parmesan, lemon and olive oil; garlic shrimps with tomato sauce; very good rigatoni with tomato sauce, eggplants and dry salted ricotta (alla norma) and a very good veal alla milanese.

With the loss of many nice restaurants in the Palisades, Modo Mio is the best of the rest. It has a comfortable family restaurant feeling but it is also special enough for a couples dinner. The food is delicious and the wine list adequate. The wait staff are helpful and don't disappear after you are served. Substitutions are accepted when you place your order, a little more spice, extra cheese, no problem. It is nice to go where they treat the customer right!

My wife and I have been to this restaurant multiple times and will continue to return when in the mood for decent neighborhood Italian food. The atmosphere is pleasurable, and the service is friendly, but frequently the staff is overwhelmed. The pasta is nontoxic and the veal, fish, and steak are better than what I can make at home. Prices are reasonable.
Pros: in the neighborhood if you live in Pacific Palisades, food slightly above ordinary,
prices fair, owner friendly.
Cons: not enough staff, food lacks creativity.

This is not only my favorite restaurant in Pacific Palisades, but one of my favorites in all of LA. The food is always delicious -- fresh ingredients, wonderfully prepared. They have an excellent menu, with varied and interesting specials every day (usually consisting of at least a special appetizer, a pasta, a fish and a meat). The service is always efficient and friendly, but never overbearing. It has a small, local atmosphere, but with sophisticated food and service. Consistently outstanding, both for lunch and dinner.
