Description: Dining at Modo Mio is a delight, thanks to the efforts of owner Gian Franco Bertolino and his talented staff. While Modo Mio translates to my way, in Italian, Bertolino has infused his restaurant with his own standard of excellence. From the moment diners are greeted, as they enter the Newport Coast, California location, they are enveloped into a haven of warmth and hospitality. Bertolino and company are dedicated to creating and serving superb Northern Italian specialties, to their devoted clientele, in an ambiance that is both inviting and relaxing.

The food is always good, not the best but certainly above average for Italian food. It is not as noisy as the adjacent restaurants. The location is not great since it sits in a little shopping mall albeit one with great view and location.

Home style cooking with plentiful plates and great flavors. Seriously god homemade soup. Not much atmosphere, casual and relaxed.

Modo Mio is our go-to restaurant. The service is always friendly, and the food is consistently very nice. The prices are reasonable, for the area. We bring our kids, and the noise level is good for absorbing some of the kid noise. No kid menu, but ours love pasta, and their ravioli are great. The homemade pappardelle is fantastic.

Great little neighborhood gem that serves freshly made pasta, fish, and meat dishes. Love the carpaccio and spaghetti bolonese.

We made a 6:15 reservation on Open Table for 4 on a Saturday night and at 4:30 that same day we switched it to 7 pm for 2/22/14. No problem and a wait of only 3 minutes while the hostess seated a two couples ahead of us.

Three of us had the bean soup, and when my wife finishes a dish, you know it's good. We all enjoyed the appetizer soup and one of us had a great caesars salad. Our cousins had two different types of veal and each with a different side of pasta that came with it. The pasta was large enough to be a meal unto itself. They finished it all. I had the penne with mushrooms...not quite what I was expecting, but it was delicious. My wife had the salmon, which was large enough for two and perfectly cooked. The bread was fresh and warm and they gave us a "compliments from the chef" appetizer taster of sliced mushrooms in olive oil and herbs. Wonderful!

We were very pleased with our meals and certainly will return the next time we're in that area. The only downfall....and I say this about almost all California restaurants is that it is noisy!
