We love this restaurant. Have had both lunch and dinner there over the past few days. The menu is small related to many of the restaurants in Sicily. The chef does not try to overeextend himself or be too clever, preferring to focus on select dishes and do them well. I think about 6 things to choose from in each... More

This place is worth hunting out, as it is hidden away down a cul de sac in Modica Alta. Warm welcome from friendly, knowledgeable staff. Great service and the food is of a very high standard. Also the price is extremely good value in my opinion.

This is fine Sicilian cuisine. We sat inside but seats are available outside. The food was delicious. From the small chickpea and fish amuse bouche right to the amazing Sicilian cheese board. It was all excellent. The chickpea scampi soup was delicious- light and full of taste. I then had the lemon gnocchi and artichoke- it literally melts in your... More

The dining room is large and inviting. The service is impeccable, knowledgeable, and very friendly. The wine list is voluminous. The food is Italian perfection. And the prices are more than fair – for a world class restaurant the value here would be called cheap. If you are in Modica and don’t eat here – you’ll miss a highlight.

In Modica for three nights and have been to this restaurant twice. Sublime dishes, great wine menu, fantastic staff and very well priced. Fantastic restaurant in a lovely part of this atmospheric city. A real treat.

The place is a bit hidden but it us worthwhile when you have found it. The panelle a Sicilian street food is lovely, the artichoke hearts with goat cheese is great. The mackerel tasted exceptional and the staff is very attentive. Definitely recommendable

We were expecting a lot more excitement with the food. The service was very good and efficient, the dining room clean and well lit, but there was something exciting missing in the food. You can't go wrong but you can do better, especially at 50 Euros per head

The first course was what appeared to be Heinz spaghetti hoops with a few minute pieces of pork and lots of it. Our second course was a roll of pork which was very lightly cooked, I enjoyed it but several members in our party refused to eat it, there were lots of potatoes and greens with it. The third course... More
