ok homemade cooking, but when you feel that your dinner is the lunch leftovers .... I mean our lunch leftovers, not somebody else leftovers. The choice was very limited so we went with a mixed starter,meatballs and boiled meat. The starter was average and didn't respect the description on the menu, the meatballs were ok and the boiled meat was... More

Straightforward, unpretentious restaurant serving good local food at very good prices. Distinctive dishes that you won't find outside the region. Try one of the rabbit dishes.

This place was recommended by the cheese shop vendor in Modica and he didn't steer us wrong. The vegetable soup was delicious and my tripe stew (I know, not usually a dish that gets any recommendations on line) was amazing. This was real slow food made with love.

This is a great family-owned and run Trattoria just 3-4 mins walks from the main historic road, serving the very real traditional Ragusan food. The staff are friendly and the restaurant is a wonderfully old, but very well maintained, traditionally furnished place. It is a real find.

Maybe the best ravioli in my life. Very good side dish (caponata), soup and second dish (lamb with potatoes). Quite decent house-wine. Excellent, tasty but gentle home made dessert (almond pudding) and liquor (allorino). Very cheap. Very polite and informative service.

We ate here twice whilst having a three nights in Modica, the food was so good we decided to eat the following night. A small family run trattoria with excellent Sicilian food and friendly and enthusiastic service. Richard UK
