we made reservations late
we made reservations late in the day and were lucky to get in, inasmuch as all the other tables were busy. when we arrived we were immediately escorted to out table. The food was prepared just right and they were amenable to substitutions where dietary considerations arose. i will return again, and recommend it to my friends.

Entering Modo Mio, we were instantly transported to favorite trattorias of Tuscany. It was crowded so be sure to make a res. Everything was perfect...the food, the ambiance, the service. We'll return again and again...and the chicken diavolo with mustard and balsalmic sauce...out of this world.

Modo Mio is a wonderful restaurant
Modo Mio is a wonderful restaurant that we have dined at many, many times. It has a romantic, rustic ambience with a very low noise level. You can converse during dinner in a normal tone of voice. It's perfect for dinner for two or larger celebrations. The food is consistently delicious and well prepared, and they always have a few good nightly specials. One nice touch is that they bring either a plate of mushrooms marinated in lemon juice and olive oil, or bruschetta to the table at no charge. The prices are very reasonable for the quality. We recommend it highly.

Excellent food and service.
Excellent food and service. Restaurant is off a side street and in a multi story office building. The Branzino was excellent, the vegitables were fresh, hot and crisp. The veal scallipini was perfectly done. The wine list is very nice and accommodating with some unusual brands as well as classic Italian varieties, the pricing is fair, the corkage is a little on the high side at $18 for this type of restaurant. The regular tables are somewhat small, there was three of us and the table was crowded, with four it would have been very crowded. If you plan on going for dinner after 6:30, reservations are highly recommended as the restaurant isn't large and fills easily with a repeat crowd. Yes, would recommend.

Always a pleasure
The staff here are so helpful. I forgot the caregiver for one of our group of 13 and they immediately pulled up another table and smoothly served us. The food is wonderful. We all wanted a bite of the pumpkin ravioli and they brought us a plate to share. I find the prices very reasonable. Thanks Modo Mio.

Great Italian Food
Everything that we ordered was delicious and the portions were just right! It took us a little while to find the actual restaurant but it was certainly worth the search!

Hits the Mark
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.

Happened upon it
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.

Pacific Palisades hidden gem
As a first timer this was a wonderful new place to go for a comfy food feeling. Wait staff is friendly and efficient. Menu is far from limited and priced right
