A great little Italian place. Delicious food, friendly and attentive service, just a great place to have dinner. It was pretty loud, but everyone was enjoying themselves, so that's to be expected.

At least we were warned by our server that Modo Mio's food is very salty. Instead of leaving after we sat down, we decided to stay because we were all very hungry. The menu is considered Northern Italian and looked incredible. They offered wonderful flavor combinations and quality ingredients. There is no doubt about that, but the entire meal was... More

Went on a Sunday when they have a special all inclusive menu. Was not disappointed! From the antipasto to the pastas to the meats to the desserts...all were great! Different, as it was family style, but enough food for a doggie bag!

Within our group, for Antipasti, I saw: Cozze (Mussels), Capasante ( Scallop), Calamari alla Griglia ( Squid), Meatball and a daily special: Pork on arugula. For Pasta: Pappardelle (pasta ribbons on lamb), Lasagna Bologonese, Agnolotti (rabbit ravioli). For... More

For us it's a little out of the way, but well worth the trip. Friendly atmosphere and great food. Right near the L and across street from a wine store (it's byob). We all had the tasting menu and everything was superb. Portions we just right. Bring cash, it's cash only.

The food and service are excellent! The $40.00 tasting menu is a real value and the portion sizes are very good considering the price and the quality of the food. No complaints but I would suggest the owner consider hearing the plates before serving hot food on very cold dishes. I would also suggest better locks on the unisex bathroom... More

Sixteen of us went for dinner. Service was very good and the food was wonderful. It's a BYO restaurant but wine store located across the street. Will visit restaurant again in the future.

Sorry - you are cancelled because the entire restaurant had been rented out!!! Yes, try and find fine dining for ten in 5 days during the holiday season.

Visited Modo Mio for a special occasion with eight diners on a Saturday evening. Some of the diners had been to Modo Mio before, ALL of the diners are planning to visit again as the entire experience was so good. First, since I was the planner for the group, I spoke directly with Chef McAndrews to tell him about our... More
