“Authentic Sicilian pizza in a handy location”
Reviewed March 30, 2012

We stumbled upon this pizzeria having found our first choice restaurant fully booked. Initially disappointed that we were having to compromise, we ended up have a really tasty meal in this busy, efficient establishment. If you are short of time but want a hearty meal then this s a good place to visit. The range of pizzas is phenomenal and the salads are tasty too.

“Unexpected gem, serving great pizzas”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

Wandered past this place at first - in winter, outside doesn't look appealing (can't see through the door - thought it might be takeaway only!). However once inside it opended up into a maze of interconnecting rooms in a very nicely decorated, modern, smart restaurant.

Huge selection of pizzas. Most patrons (including a lot of locals) had the famous chips with mayo/ketchup as a starter. Chips followed by pizza is not quite my thing so we skipped that part (although they looked very good! generous portions). In agreement with other reviewers, the pizzas were very good and staff friendly and efficient.

Would definitely recommend for a tasty pizza whilst in Modica! atmostphere and wine surpiringly good.

“Real Pizza, perfectly cooked”
Reviewed October 22, 2011

I spend a lot of time in Italy and am yet to find a better pizza than that served at La Contea. The setting, either in the side street in summer or in the vaulted 'damuso' rooms is perfect. If you want to do as the locals you have to have chips as a starter and drink beer with dinner, rather than wine. My choice is the buffalo mozzerella and wild boar sausage pizza, at €7 it's great value. And notwithstanding the local's preference, the vino locale Nero d'Avola does the trick for me for the perfect pizza experiance. La Contea is a must visit during a trip to the wonderful city of Modica.

“Perfect Pizza”
Reviewed October 18, 2011

Loved the freshness of the ingredients that were apparent in their fantastic pizzas. This place was packed with locals when we visited. Always a sure sign of a good restaurant. Book, or call in early to ensure you get a table!

“Pizza and chips!”
Reviewed September 25, 2011

Specialities seem to be chips with tomato ketchup or mayonnaise as an antipasti (yes, french fries!), and pizza. Also serves good, thin steaks and adequate pork chops. Large, with several rooms indoors, but very busy. Without a reservation, arrive by 8.00 p.m. to beat the queues at weekends, when the alley is filled with tables.
