First time at A Modo Mio and we will be back. They greeted us warmly and our table was ready. Wait staff patiently answered our questions about the entrees. The steamed clams were wonderful, the seafood in our entrees was perfectly cooked and all were served piping hot. A truly wonderful experience.

In fact I did recommend your restaurant while I was shopping in Stone Harbor someone asked where was a good restaurant and my friends and I highly recommended A Modo Mio to them. All of our meals were delicious and our server Maria was outstanding.

I have been here many times and have enjoyed my meals!
The last 2 visits we have had different experiences . Our food has not been good at all and we have felt rushed out of the restaurant. I will be looking for a different restaurant to bring my out of town guest to.

This is a “Bring Your Own” wine establishment. While the food is excellent, the prices are a bit on the high side.

Our dinners were very good. Pork chop, and Gorgonzola chicken, plus pasta dishes. Apps not so good, octopus was skinny. We waited 1 hour after our apps for our dinner to arrive. Gratuity for 6 was included but our waitress didn’t tell us just happened to check it again because it seemed to high

We chose to sit outside. Unfortunately our table was off the main street, and at the very end around the corner so we felt somewhat like outcasts. Also there was no light at the this table which would have made it impossible to eat in the dark. The staff accommodated as best they could so in the end it tuned out to be a very enjoyable meal. Great staff!!

We love this restaurant! Food is amazing and fresh. We booked on open table and were seated in the dining room to the right of the entrance. There was a large party of about 18/20 and we were seated right next to them, every table was empty but we were seated right next to the large (loud) party. We were hoping for a nice quiet date dinner. Other than that we do really like this restaurant!,

Service was suberb. Mary our waitress was very attentive. Our water glasses were never empty.
Both of us got the specials. Lobster ravioli and Chilean sea bass. Delicious and the presentation was outstanding. I had the special argula salad with pears. The dressing was light and tasty. Yes great place to go for a special dinner. Can be a bit noisy

Our favorite restaurant in Sea Isle City! We love the food, the pasta is home made, everything is fresh, and their specials are so creative! Last weekend the appetizer special was fried zucchini blossoms, stuffed with prosciutto & served on a bed of eggplant reduction! Mushroom ravioli is a perennial favorite. Others in our party raved about the braised lamb shank and the mahi mahi. Service is always good (thank you Shannon!) Highly recommend A Modo Mio, but be sure to make a reservation if you're dining in July or August!

The food was terrific, well presented, tasty, clearly Italian Fine Cuisine. Couple of disappointing details: we were two couples and the waitress refused to provide separate checks, the table was street side and we were sitting next to a wooden palisade behind which was a roaring compressor, luckily, we were not in a romantic mood.

I must say that I was a bit disappointed with the food after getting a number of recommendations from friends. The bottle of wine was opened but then left on the table and never offered to pour or pour the wine for us. We shared a salad which was rather watery and small and not especially tasty even with the dressing. I had the veal but the sage gave it a different taste and one I was not especially fond of; and, not as tender as it should have been; came with potatoes and a lovely veg mix--getting sides w/out a la carte is always a plus for me! My friend had the sea bass in parchment which again was watery, maybe from the steam and a rather small piece of fish but it did come with a number of shrimp--tasty and good and enjoyed though. The dessert of the Limoncello Cake was absolutely delicious! light and tasty!
Spoke to friends and most of them had ordered the homemade pasta and were surprised that we didn't LOVE the food and place. Would try again though. Our waitress was pleasant and helpful but the maître d didn't seem very friendly and hardly said hello, let alone, did you enjoy and good bye. The noise level was way too loud.

Love this place! BYOB. The service is always excellent. The food is delicious. We always look forward to the specials which are seasonal and creative. That it is open year round is a bonus. The off-season is quiet and romantic. During the season, it is noisier but not too bad.
