Because I should have saved the word for this amazing place. My Braciole was incredible. I’ve tried making this dish but never got it nearly as tender. I loved how al dented they kept the veg. Crab cakes and Caesar also delicious with a nice...More

Hi Jeff, Thank you for your kind review. Rusy has a special table-side manner, doesn't he? He is so old school without ever seeming presumptuous. I appreciate that you called him by name as he deserves your recognition. It sounds as though you are accomplished...More

We stopped in because it was close and we were very hungry. Both meals, Caprese Salad and Chicken Parm calzone, were good, but for the money there are many other Italian restaurants to choose from. I will say the Caprese Salad contained a generous portion...More

I went with friends to Modesto for dinner. Our server was friendly and funny. I went with the wood fired Romaine salad and Grilled Octopus appetizer. Both were perfectly cooked, especially the Octopus. Everyone in our group enjoyed their meals. Highly recommend.

My wife and I were looking forward to our first trip to Asheville and our concierge at The Biltmore highly suggested this place. Needless to say, Bojangles is better. The staff was arrogant, neglected to bring us menus and bread. Then, when we asked if...More

Went here tonight with our dog Macy, so couldn't eat inside; actually didn't see the inside, that is why I can only give 4/5 stars at this time. But we had the seafood risotto and lamb saltimbocca, and both were excellent. Actually, being a carnivore,...More

My fiancé and I had lunch at Modesto. We ordered the Caprese salad and the Americana pizza and we were very pleasantly surprised. The food is tasty and presented well. I fully recommend this restaurant for lunch.
