I just love Modesto. The cuisine is Italian-based, and the menu is gigantic! The octopus pizza is a local favorite, but I love the homemade stuffed grape leaves and all of their seafood dishes. And much of the produce is grown by the owner. Terrific!

We stopped for lunch. I had a salad with grilled chicken, which was good. My husband had a crab sandwich - bland. The wine choices were not that good (not a wine snob). Asheville seems to be more of a Brewery town. We shared a dessert which was very good - tiramisu (wait person's suggestion).

Ran across the jewel while walking around in downtown Asheville. It was a beautiful day and we had our pup with us. They allowed her to join us on there outdoor patio for lunch. We split the eggplant parmesan that was killer and a local beer. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The fish (snapper) was fresh and tasty. My husband had aubergine for a starter. The wine was excellent. Service was fast and friendly. Also it is dog friendly outside. I did not have my dog with me this time, but would be happy to bring him next time.

Mea culpa. I thought I reviewed this wonderful little spot months ago. I tasted their brioche at the Bread Festival held at the Green Life Grocery in Asheville. I immediately had to try their products. Their two American pastry chefs were trained in France. The breads are sensational. They make one with fennel that was incredibly delicious.
