We went to this restaurant three times during our one-week vacation at Newport Coast. Food quality is good. And, its wine, either recommended by the staff or the house wine, never failed to exceed our expectation in our three visits.

With all the fine restaurants to choose from in the area Modo Mio is always a great choice. None of the summer hassle parking (parking at the beach can be a nightmare in the summer!) food is delicious and service is great. We've never had...More

Modo Mio has a fixed price lunch with an entree, a glass of wine, and a dessert. The price was right and the volume reasonable for a lunch. The setting is quite pretty with the ocean just across PCH.

Had a wonderful dinner w/Caesar salad, wonderful butternut squash ravioli and pollo siciliana. Both were absolutely delicious, served hot!! What a wonderful meal would definitely return.

My sister and I ate at this restaurant. Very nicely decorated, casual dining. When we arrived, the place was warm/muggy so we left, went back and changed outfits and returned. They did put the a/c on so it was better as the night went on....More

A little jewel in the finest neighborhood in Newport Beach (Crystal Cove)... New owners have turned this place into a great find for this prime area. Can't wait to go back (like tonight or tomorrow!).

I really liked this restaurant. I'm not a wine-expert but my friend was impressed with the variety of wines offered, from a $10 glass of Tuscan Sangiovese to high priced varieties. I typically would have ordered Lasagna with meat sauce , however, to be more...More

Dining at Modo Mio is a delight, thanks to the efforts of owner Gian Franco Bertolino and his talented staff. While Modo Mio translates to my way, in Italian, Bertolino has infused his restaurant with his own standard of excellence. From the moment diners are greeted, as they enter the Newport Coast, California location, they are enveloped into a haven of warmth and hospitality. Bertolino and company are dedicated to creating and serving superb Northern Italian specialties, to their devoted clientele, in an ambiance that is both inviting and relaxing.
