This restaurant offers typical dishes from the Sicilian inland and it appears obvious that it has adapted to tourists. The quality of the food was good, but probably better suited to cold or warm weather. It is worthwhile going if in the area.

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!

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.

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!

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.
