“Really original food”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

A surprisingly original menu for what looked suspiciously like a tourist trap, with lots of local dishes that we hadn't seen anywhere else in Sicily. The multi lingual glossy menu, complete with pictures, was slightly tacky but actually quite helpful, and we ended up with two very nice, and pretty large, pasta dishes - one with spinach and broccoli, one with pork. We ended with a very nice canetta, all washed down with 500ml of the local red. Great value too, around €25 for the lot, and very nice outdoor seating. Recommended!

“the second best”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

We had 2 meals at this local restaurant on the main street of Modica.Sicily. The products of this area are tomatoes, eggplant and the best olive I have ever had.
The tomato salad was fabulous as was the eggplant dish.

“Seasonal dish in May”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

I ordered the seasonal dish pasta with tenerezze (zucchini flowers) and the orange salad. It was very good. They gave me a copy of their menu book that shows pictures of the menu items!

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

This is clearly a long established Modica restaurant which, sadly, we felt has become a bit of a tourist trap. It has a nice authentic feel to it until you see that that the hand written menus in local dialect are accompanied by glossy brochures on every table in about 7 languages with photos of the food. Although there were some locals, the place was overwhelmingly a tourist joint. I found the food disappointing. An interesting mixed starter was too much for 2 and I liked about half of it. My rabbit was overcooked and dry and again too big a portion. Also, somewhat bizarrely, the casserole was served in a pot which included some very soggy chips--really not nice. Overall, it was adequate and the interesting interior, buzzy atmosphere , cheap prices and pleasant staff compensated to some extent for the mediocre food. For a much better meal, go to Domus just along the road.

“Better than I thought it would be”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

I was prepared for a typical tourist meal, but the pasta was much better than anticipated and there was plenty on the plate. Service was efficient, nothing to pick fault with. Simple Sicilian food.
