“New chef prepares traditional Sicilian food with care and fresh high-quality ingredients.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

We ate lunch and dinner at Locanda del Colonnello in April and enjoyed all of our food. The restaurant was pleasantly busy for both meals. The sausage with wild asparagus was wonderfully hearty and lively. Our companion's steak was delicious. The dishes weren't nouvelle cuisine nor rustic Sicilian food, but were expertly prepared traditional dishes with beautiful, seasonal ingredients. Will return again.

“Definitely worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

Although this restaurant is a bit pricier than the other trattorie in Modica, it is certainly worth a visit.
The food is presented in a sublime way, coupled with a mouth watering flavour.
I would recommend the pasta ai pomodorini infornati, pecorino e basilico (roasted cherry tomatoes, pecorino cheese and basil) and coniglio con salsiccia e pistacchio (rabbit with sausage and pistachio).
The ambience is airy, clean and spacious while the staff is friendly and discreet.
This restaurant combines traditional recipes with affordable sophistication.

“Reasonably cheap and very tasty choise.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

A very solid and creative spot in Modica. Short menu ensures freshness and a good taste. We have ordered calamarata, as well as "cavati" with sicilian pesto. Cavati were excellent, while the other pasta undercooked a bit (undercooked, NOT AL DENTE - I know what AL DENTE is), however the sauce was excellent. Desserts great, yet small.

Overally a very good meal for a good value - we paid 40 euros for 2 persons includind 1/2l of white wine.

Service is very kind and professional - no issues here.

The interior is quite raw and resembles more of a cantine than a restaurant, hence I would not recommend it for romantic dates nor business meetings.
