“the antipasto to begin your vacation...”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

after a long drive across sicily, we arrived in modica, and had the recommendation from the owner of our hotel to try this place for dinner. as it was a short walk in a quaint alley nearby, we were a little tired, and ready for some simple modican food. we were immediately charmed with the simple kitchen atmosphere, and the smell of home cooking. the service was reserved but welcoming, as if we were entering a family home. after looking at some options on the menu, the waiter verified that the food was all made by hand, and what were the typical local dishes that were more popular. it helps very much to speak italian, but you can get by. we decided on the antipasto plate, a very traditional local variety including hard boiled eggs, and it was sumptuous! after the large antipasto we had only one plate each of pasta, the ravioli with spinach and ricotta, and pork sauce typical of modica, and handmade noodle soup with broth and tiny hand rolled meatballs....delicious. after enjoying the leisurely atmosphere we were pleased to see the cost was not high for the simple meal that we enjoyed very much.

“Typical Italian cooking”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Order the antipasti della casa - one for 2 - they don't push you to order. Great way of trying the local specialities. Only came to 23 euros for 2 for the whole meal and that was because we decided to have dessert!!!!!

“Very good!”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

A Putia ro Vinu is an excellent place where you can taste the real old Modicana Cusine at a very good price and, if you book your table, with a decent time of waiting! The atmosfere is cosy and the place is very friendly. Get the antipasto della casa and you will feel already in heaven!

“Charming place with wonderful food and friendly service.”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

I don't understand why this isn't number one on the list! We arrived to an informal friendly welcome and a menu with a good choice. We ordered the antipasti for 2 (1 really would have been plenty), a primo each (the lightest gnocchi ever) and a secundo each. We struggled to finish and had to forgo the dolci, sadly. Mezzo carafe of house red was highly drinkable. All that set us back around 40 euros. Really would recommend this gem of an eaterie.

“No reason not to visit”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We returned to A Putia last year and revisited in April. I can't find anything bad to say and lots that is good, or excellent. There is no downside with this traditional Sicilian gem. The service is great, the food wonderful and a nice change from 'standard' Italian fare and your money goes a long way too. What more could you want? There's no reason not to go. . .
