The most delicious panini I've ever had the pleasure of eating. We went for lunch and plan on going again before we leave. Try the panini with chicken, mozzarella, hot peppers, spicy red mayo and sun dried tomatoes. Life will not be the same again. It was incredible and you'll wonder how you're going to be able to live without it when you return back home. It was actually the best food we've had in Modica and even Sicily. A must.

On a frustrating day in Modica, our first choice lunch venue was fully booked and everywhere else was either closed or closing at 2pm. So, La Bodega on Via Castello turned out to be an oasis in the food desert. It's a small, simple panineria - one of a chain of two family owned restaurants- but the panini: they were so good. I mean hit-it-out-of-the-ballpark good, and head and shoulders above the soggy, squashed offerings found in UK coffee chains. We chose two from a choice of over 30. The panini were stuffed full of cheese, meat, sausage, salad and pickles, and the bread - warm, rounded and oh,so crunchy! Outstandingly good, and substantial enough for a decent lunch. And, if you're thinking that's all well and good but when am I going to find myself in a small town in Southern Sicily - don't despair. Its sister restaurant is in New York City!

Stopped in this delightful little place for pannini, chips and a couple of beers. The sandwich choice was pretty epic - definitely something there for everyone. We stuck with local cured meats and cheeses and were not disappointed. Pannini and chips were piping hot and served with a big smile. We also had the chance to gawp at the hamburgers ordered by the family at the table next to us. This was a super place for a relaxed lunch but it would do very nicely for a smaller dinner for those who overindulged earlier in the day!

We were looking for something a little different on this evening and decided La Bottega could give us that. A really friendly young waitress helped us through the menu and we decided to go for a salad and a panini, washed down with a couple of glasses of prosecco. La Bottega isn't a big place but it has a big heart and we had a very pleasant hour or so eatiing and drinkibng with the locals. The advertising suggests it is connected to a similar house in New York City. We will try that out when we are there next.

We were walking downtown and were looking for a light lunch in Modica, Sicily and come across this tiny tratoria. We chose a "salami misti" to have à variaty of different salamis and it was very interesting. We then had à "trecolore insalata"' Maude of radichio, endives, arugula, black olives and shaves of parmesan. It was also very tasty and satifying. Both were accompaniedby crostinis.
