“Found this place on TripAdvisor...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2013

I was in the area with my daughter and went to this restaurant for lunch based on the recommendations.from this site. My daughter had the "pick your own pasta and sauce" for $6.99 and I had the minestrone soup. My 12 year old declared the fettuchini alfredo sauce *the best EVER*. I tried a fe bites and it had small unmelted pieces of cheese which sounds gross but was actually wonderful as they were a contrast in flavor and texture in the sauce.

My soup was chock filled with vegetable...it was a tomato based with just the right level of spice.

We did have a choice of brakfast or lunch although it was lunchtime. Most of the other diners appeared to be regulars. And if the tyoes of cars in a parking lot tell anything about a restaurants patrons this one is top notch. I figure if one candrive a high end car, one can eat anywhere so I considered it a good sign that they chose to eat here.

I would try this place again if in the area.Oh and don't be turned off by some of the other boarded up establishments on the way to this restaurant. I felt perfectly safe in the actual neghborhood of the restaurant.

“Great food, service and great jazz on occasions!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013

Had several meals at the Mediterranean Market and Grill in Modesto recently. Carmen is a wonderful host and makes you welcome. His staff are friendly and efficient. The food is great and whilst I was there they even had a great jazz band playing with a top trumpet player from Australia (Greg Englert)! Fantastic night. I will eat there again.

“Outstanding food”

I have been here several times for breakfast and lunch. The portions are large and the flavors are wonderful. Highly recommend the calamari for lunch. Lemon caper sauce was perfect.

“Tri Tip Sandwich For Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

In a sandwich, I have never tasted such tender beef with no gristle or fat. The sandwich came with delicious grilled squash and cucumber. It also came with mashed potatoes and a generous helping of gravy.

The menu has a good selection of different items. Even raw oysters are available.

White table cloths cover every table.

The service was efficient. The waitresses were pleasant and welcoming.

The restrooms were clean and well stocked.

Outside seating is available within sheltered tents or one can dine indoors. On a hot day, it may be better to dine inside.

The restaurant has a small parking lot, with plenty of on street parking nearby.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served, with a different menu for each meal.

Five minutes east of the 99 freeway from the downtown exit, this restaurant is one of the best in town and is worth a visit.

“Outstanding service and good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2013

A friend and I visiting Modesto, stopped here. Service was outstanding. Waiter made excellent recommendations and met all our needs immediately. Food was great- fresh fish, home made pasta. The desert special- we received their first ever chocolate crepe filled with cherries. Very good. Outside area had a live band. Would highly recommend.
