Very good seafood antipasti: generous and tasty helpings of octopus and squid. Veal in mushrooms was dreadful : bland and chewy, so we sent it back. Pizza diavola was a much better choice. Nicely situated outside a baroque church in the heart of the town. Good prosecco to wash it all down. Service a bit slow, but friendly enough. Bustling and popular. 58 euros for two including wine, so good value.

We were desperately trying to find somewhere a Saturday lunchtime and fell upon this place. The pizzas and other food proved good, the price reasonable, and the waitresses particularly welcoming and friendly. They were especially helpful toward my wife, who had hurt her leg and had difficulty getting around. Convenient and pleasant without being exceptional. We would like to have gone back sometime but couldn't make it.

We ate here as it was the only place we could find that was open and serving pizza at lunchtime and delighted we did!

We ordered two pizzas - both were amazing! We also had the arancini which was also delicious. The restaurant is typically Italian and slightly austere inside but the food makes up for it. Two pizzas, two beers and a large portion of arancini for €25 - you cant go wrong with that.

I would highly recommend!

The food was perfectly adequate (among stiff competition around) but the blonde lady had no manners at all, she was rude, unsmiling, uncaring and a disgrace to the otherwise wonderful Sicilian culture and the restaurant.

La Perla is the only, I repeat, only restaurant in Modica where we've felt that the 'Inglese' were barely tolerated - even the Italian (though to be fair, not Sicilian) speaking ones!

My pizza was perfectly good, as was my partner's, but there were repeated issues with a friend's order and the surly attitude left a lot to be desired. We love Modica and the Modicani are so friendly and welcoming, so it's a let down to have to report even one disappointment.

To be fair, the local lady paying her bill ahead of us didn't seem to do much better than we did when it came to service with a smile, so maybe we weren't being singled out for special treatment after all?

For altogether more cheery, positive and typically upbeat reviews please feel free to read my offerings on A Putia, Bella Napoli and La Contea all of which are amongst my top eateries just about anywhere!
