Description: Home and food have such a close relationship that they’re almost equal in everyday life and in the privacy of us all. In CasaCiomod that finds its natural dimension in the simple ritual to sit around the table: good food, slow eating, conviviality.
We do not like the formalisms and pleasantries, we do not like rich tables set, the rigid postures and at least all those unpronounceable names: for us invite you for dinner means the comfort of an armchair close to the fireplace and the intimacy of a sofa ready to host you for a chat and confidences and that’s mean to remind you the family tables during the feast days, but at the same time, excite you with a new journey into the flavors of the earth. Our philosophy is the 25711 KM²: This number identifies the area of Sicily, the extension of our earth, the great supermarket of nature where every day we do our shopping.
In Casaciomod cuisine we only use Sicilian products, many of which are presided over by Slowfood so that’s why they don’t need a lot of shows: “datterino” tomato from Scicli, Mozzarella from Ragusa, Capers of Salina, Trapani Salt, Organic Olive Oil and even Flour produced by one of the oldest (and now the few) water mills that still exist in our area. In addition, of course, the best Sicilian wines.
In our menu of the day you will find a selection of appetizers, first courses, main courses and desserts, all prepared with fresh and seasonal products. We also recommend you to try our pizzas prepared with a mixture of flour, including the integral one from the water mill "Cavallo d'Ispica" through a long rising dough. They’re then served exclusively with fresh mozzarella cut with knife and with a selection of ingredients strictly fresh and Sicilian. We prepare all our dishes with simplicity, genuineness and love for the good things, hoping to stimulate your curiosity, to evoke aromas and flavors already etched in your memory, or try to make you discover some of them new and surprising.

Reviewed July 12, 2014

After an evening flight into Comiso we arrived late and hungry at our accommodation outside Modica - the very special Casa al Castello. Paolo recommended Casaciomod owned by his cousin. 'Cio' for chocolate and 'mod' for Modica. He made it very clear his recommendation was because we would find it open and serving after 11pm and it was good. He was right on both counts.

Other reviews mention the almost deserted carpark which made us wonder if the place was open. An archway opens into a courtyard off which a wine bar and the restaurant lie. The restaurant is in two parts the second of which looks onto a walled garden. We were welcomed quickly shown to one of the few free tables in the inner room and as we looked around the busy rooms all we could see were lots of people relaxed clearly enjoying their food and company. We sank into our chairs and knew the holiday had really begun. A very good nero d'avolo was confirmation.

We had cold cuts antipasto, pizzas, a shared desert and coffee, all with good fresh ingredients well prepared, flavoured and presented, finished off with complementary liqueurs made on the premises.The bill for two including wine was under €40.

We only returned once during our stay as we like to try as many different places as possible when on hols. Some of the other places where we ate promised ( and cost) more but if we were in near Modica again we would make our way to Casaciomod before any of these others. Casaciomod delivered.

A point to note is it is on the outskirts of modern Modica and not in the historic centre. You will need a car to get there. It is neither ritzy nor pretentious. It would be a perfect place finish up a days touring in the Val do Noto or after a day at the beach, if staying in or around Modica.

“Lovely food, fresh and good service”
Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

Arrived to an empty car park and restaurant wondering if we had made a big mistake. Where was everyone? No need to worry over the next hour the place filled up and by the time we left the car park was choca! Obviously a popular local spot. Need to book at weekends as we found out too late as we couldn't get in tonight but just squeezed a table for tomorrow. Decor is cool and interesting. Ingredients fresh and local.
