Sicilian food can be heavily sauced, overly fishy or pasty with ground nuts. Vineria Modi takes the best flavors of Sicily and turns them into elegant, bright, utterly delightful dishes. These are serious cooks turning out fantastic food. Make a reservation and go! Note: not suitable for children. A group with kids was turned away while we were dining even... More

It's a little restaurant that one wouldn't stumble across unless you're really bad with directions and get lost ! However with a little direction it isn't hard to find. We ordered the tuna tartar and octopus as starters and they were delicious, somehow not a kind of taste you'd find anywhere else ! Then we had the norma pasta and... More

We visited this place twice in the 3 days we were in Taormina. Made reservations for the third night after eating there the first. Small place with fantastic food. Front of the house was fantastic, service was spot on. Would recommend this place to everyone! Think I would go back to Taormina just to eat here.

Booked this on the back of the rating on Tripadvisor. Food was lovely - though the aubergine parmagina didn't blow me away.. but my carbonara with asparagus was lovely. Our friends enjoyed the food but again, weren't blown away also. Location is OK although a little tricky to find and down a side street opposite a little allsorts kind of... More

Really enjoyed this place. In a quiet alley about 50m from Corso Umberto you probably won't find it by accident. Also it's not huge so we suspected booking might be advisable in the evenings. We had lunch and booked to come back later in the week for dinner. My seared tuna was awesome. Really hit the spot. The pickled Red... More

We came here after reading reviews on trip advisor and we're not disappointed. We started the meal with aubergine parmigiana which was deliciously simple and tasted great. I had the special carbonara with asparagus and my partner had the lamb ragu, both amazing although we probably didn't need to share a starter. This left room to sample 3 desserts off... More

We stumbled on the restaurant: Friday night in March it was not very busy at first but started to fill up - we hadn't booked. Lovely seared Tuna done to perfection, a starter of crostini with a cream sauce and anchovies ( that were fresh and not salty) Good service. We had the house wine, by the glass and it... More

We came here during our first night in Taormina based on the TripAdvisor reviews and loved it so much we returned for our second and last night. We loved both the small and attentive atmosphere and the fantastic food. Really exquisite tastes and the portions just right.

We had an outstanding meal at the restaurant. The dishes are both beautifully presented and delicious, with fresh ingredients and local flavors. Our best meal in Sicily.
