A word from Modo Mio - Pacific Palisades
Dining at Modo Mio is a delight, thanks to the efforts of owner Gian Franco Bertolino and his talented staff. While Modo Mio translates to my way, in Italian, Bertolino has infused his restaurant with his own standard of excellence. From the moment diners are greeted, as they enter the Pacific Palisades, California location, they are enveloped into a haven of warmth and hospitality. Bertolino and company are dedicated to creating and serving superb Northern Italian specialties, to their devoted clientele, in an ambiance that is both inviting and relaxing. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The food is always delicious and the menu has selections and specials for every taste."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "The food here is excellent, but they need to work on the service. I've been going there for years and the service has always been sub-par. It just seems that the staff is spread too thin. They are nice, but to wait 15 minutes just to hear the specials and order a drink is not acceptable. And I shouldn't have to constantly ask for a refill on my iced tea."

  • "It is subdued vibe, but they have tables big enough for a group, or small tables for a couple. there was a happy group of 4 people, and a family there. We enjoyed all the food-sald, raviolit, fish and especially chocolate tart dessert. Wine by the glass is fair. all in all, very nice."

  • "We have been to this restaurant several times and have always enjoyed it. The service is good and although the food is not meant for gourmet foodies, it is very food. We will be back"

  • "We went for Valentines day, first time, and really enjoyed it. Homemade gnocchi was outstanding, salad was great, and fresh vegetable soup excellent. The linguini con vongole (clams) was enjoyable, but not on the same level as the other items. And the bill, with 1 glass of wine, was extremely reasonable. We'll definitely be back."

  • "I remember this restaurant being better. The food was good but not memorable. It is a great local spot though."

  • "Great service. Great food. You can actually have a conversation with someone at your table and hear them!! What a great neighborhood gem!"

  • "Hadn't been to Modo Mio for a while and forgot how incredible the foods, how comfortable atmosphere is and how great the service is. The linquini with shrimp special (although it is always avalable) was sensational as was the other pasta dish. Their tricolore salad is always a winner and the wines by the glass are great. It will be a regular on our restaurant circuit once again. It really is a neighborhood gem."

  • "We were out walking on the beach, wanted a nice meal but also were in t-shirts & cargo pants. The staff @ Modo Mio told us no problem, sat us right away and we had one of the loveliest dinners we've had in a long while. I found this restaurant randomly on Open Table and chose it because of the menu. Service was impeccable, food was divine. Highly recommend. Try the Del Padre risotto - and, their tiramisu is to die for."

  • "When dining at a fine restaurant I expect the waitress to be polite, courteous and without an attitude."
