Wonderful location .always great service and to top it ,all reasonably priced.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMODO MIO EXQUISITEThis restaurant was an awesome experience! From the time we entered through the doors, until the four of us left, we had a five star experience. Our female server was excellent and very professional. The entire menu is absolutely one of the very best! I had the 'wild salmon' with a wine, lemon and caper sauce. Another had the swordfish. We had salads and the soup, as well as desert. All loved the wine list! This was the best salmon dinner I have EVER had, from Seattle, WA, San Francisco, CA to Newport Coast! It was the very best ever. Our party of four was raving over the dinners, and that does not happen often! All had a wonderful dining experience, and plan to return often!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMStaff are very accommodating.

Laila and Omar especially.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Little ItalianThe food is very good - service once you get seated is good - and the ambience really nice for a casual Italian with a little bit of elegance just the right amount to be casual but on the nicer side. Will for sure return but only problem is we had a reservation and still had to wait about half an hour - but it was a Saturday night and they were busy.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was very good exceptEverything was very good except it was a bit too warm, we sat inside the glass window, NO ventilation.
We enjoy going there for lunch, not as crowded as the evenings...4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I tried this previouslyMy wife and I tried this previously undiscovered retaurant in the Crystal Cove Promenade center to meet some friends visiting from the East. Based choice on the convenient location, the very reasonable but varied lunch menu viewed on line and some good on line reviews. We were the first to arrive at the resataurant for a Sunday lunch. when we left a reasonable corwd had been seated. Very pleasent staff, good service and very good food, served hot! We had Penne Salmone, Scallopine Salmone Medalions, and the daily fish special. Along with good bread and a nice Edna Valley Savion Blanc we thouroghly enjoyed our meal. We had a table by the front windows with a reasonable view of the ocean horizon given the restaurant's location.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe found Modo Mio in 2012We found Modo Mio in 2012 when we were searching for somewhere to eat late on a Saturday night, and it has become a favorite when we visit Newport Beach. Off the beaten restaurant path of Laguna and Newport Coast, it's just across from Crystal Cove State Park near Trader Joe's. The vegetable lasagna is terrific and we haven't found anything we don't like. A nice extra is the plate of mushrooms offered by the chef (we thought they were just for us, but looks like it's on the house for everyone)! It's not a hot night spot, but the food is terrific.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMModo Mio is one of our favoriteModo Mio is one of our favorite Italian Restaurants. Especially if we're looking for more provincial Italian fare. Our late lunch/early dinner was exactly what we wanted; delicious food prepared and presented perfectly, excellent service by all the staff and they treated our five-year wonderfully, and the atmosphere was relaxed yet jubilant.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMy boyfriend and I enjoy comingMy boyfriend and I enjoy coming here because the gnocchi is fantastic and we are huge gnocchi lovers. Also, the prices are great considering the area and the quality of food. The reason for 4 stars and not 5 is that the appetizer selection is small and the tables are sometimes too close together. Regardless, we will continue to dine here because it is close by, fairly priced, and great food!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love this restaurant especiallyWe love this restaurant especially for lunch. Dinner can be very noisy. Food is always great.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
