A great little Italian place. Delicious food, friendly and attentive service, just a great place to have dinner. It was pretty loud, but everyone was enjoying themselves, so that's to be expected.

At least we were warned by our server that Modo Mio's food is very salty. Instead of leaving after we sat down, we decided to stay because we were all very hungry. The menu is considered Northern Italian and looked incredible. They offered wonderful flavor...More

Went on a Sunday when they have a special all inclusive menu. Was not disappointed! From the antipasto to the pastas to the meats to the desserts...all were great! Different, as it was family style, but enough food for a doggie bag!
