“Cheerful and tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

I had been to Locanda del Colonnello in the past, and thought it was a pleasant place with good food, but on my last visit to Modica during Easter week, I thought the food was quite delicious. The menu was traditional but more varied than many of the restaurants with Modican fare, and the selections really seemed to seasonal. For example, the antipasto frittata with wild asparagus reflected the springtime. The atmosphere, though not imaginative, is clean and casual without being kitsch. There were also interesting wine options. The crowd seemed to be a lively mix of tourists and locals.

“Overall alright, nothing special. May be nice for a quick meal, but not impressive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2012

Visited at dinner last friday. Food is ok, but not exceptional. Variations of sicilian dishes. Some of the favourite dishes were missing, and the service could definitely be improved especially in attention to requests (forgot some of what we asked for). Overall ok, good value for money as the bill is affordable.

“Good food and service but no atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2011

Being British and inclined to eat early we booked a table for 8.00 pm. Only one other couple in the restaurant at this time. At this time we expected service to be good but disappointed that it was slow. Perhaps out of season they cut back on staff. Menu was limited but gave good options, Although the number of diners increased there was little atmosphere that you expect in a restaurant in Sicily. The decor is minimalist and I believe this tends to affect the diners who all talked in low voices.

“Nice place, good food, little atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2011

The place is quite nice and the staff is pretty helpful. Service was quite fast and the food is good and not that expensive considering it's the restaurant of a very nice Hotel.
The only thing you miss is the sicilian atmosphere, as the 'hotel' thing is making the whole experience a bit cold.
But again, food and wine are good.

“Good food , little atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2011

This restaurant is situated in the annexe of the Palazzo Failla hotel. It serves traditional local food as opposed to the modern, inventive cuisine of the hotel's main restaurant. The quality is perfectly acceptable but it lacks the atmosphere of the local restaurants and the clientele all appear to be from the hotel as opposed to locals. It is a good option on a Sunday night when most other restauants are closed but otherwise I would try one of the traditional, local eateries if you want to eat this type of food.
