We love Modesto. It has a great menu, and appeals to our taste buds. But when we order fried green tomatoes then that is what we expect to get. Instead we got fried semi pink tomatoes. Not even close to being green. The flavor was just wrong. The remainder of the meal was adequate. But did not live up to our expectations based on previous visits. We’ll be back. We still love Modesto.

Walked by Modesto while staying in Asheville. Walked in with family and had a great food experience. One of the best Italian meals I’ve ever had. Local Gin made a great G & T as well. Highly recommend.

Modesto was a quick choice after a long day on vacation (two couples), and did not disappoint. The staff was amazing from the time we walked up on the sidewalk until we left. My wife did not feel well when we arrived and the staff assisted in getting a taxi for her back to the hotel. The menu has a great selection, both food and wine. I ordered the whole roasted artichoke as an appetizer. Even though a little tough, the flavors were very good. I also ordered the Autumno wood fired pizza. It was also very good. The restaurant is a bit small but is a great location and well worth the stop.

My wife and myself went to Modesto last night for dinner. It far exceeded our expectations. The wine list is very Italian but had a large selection. The menu went on forever with all types of selections to choose.
We started by sharing the grouper appetizer which melted in your mouth. It was very unique and a great selection thank to our waitress. We then split a wood fired salad which was again very full of tastes from the varied content.
For our main courses my wife had the scallops which she loved and I had the cioppino which reminded me of my last visit to Italy.
Finally for desert we shared a Tiramisu and had cappuccino (wife) and an expresso (myself). The evening could not have been better and we will return to try more menu items soon.

Having lived in Asheville for 4 years we had never even heard of this gem. Italian menu - light, fresh and delicious. We will return and highly recommend.
