“For Trendy Young People not for Pizza”
Reviewed May 21, 2014 via mobile

The pizzeria is set in nice old rooms and the service was good. However the pizzas were average or in fact poor by Italian standards.

It was recommended to us by a young receptionist at our hotel and the demographic in the restaurant was definitely young people, who all seem to have a plate of French Fries for a starter with mountains of ketchup or mayonnaise. Some even had French Fries on their Pizza!

Perhaps the French Fries are outstanding, but the Pizza certainly is not.

“Place is good, pizza not so great...”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

Nothing to say to the service and the restaurant. However pizza was average. It's not the best pizza I've ever had. Toppings are of good quality but the pasta in itself isn't great. Plus to my half gave a bad sleep.

“Nice, family friendly restaurant”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

We went here twice in our one week stay. The pizzas were great, the main courses and salads were pretty good too. We were a chaotic family of ten including some very small kids and we were seated in a roomy corner and had a very relaxing meal. The waiters were unobtrusive and helpful, not gushing, which was fine.

“Incredible Pizza”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

Dinner at La Contea the night before Easter was a great experience. Full of locals, families and a few tourists we had some of the best pizza ever. Incredible dough and a huge selection of fresh toppings. An attentive waiter who spoke English was definetly an asset. To be recommended!

“An excellent Pizza in the old city of Modica”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

This is a place where some tourists will mix with many local sicilians. The Pizza is prepared by a friendly team.
