The food was amazing and service was excellent to match.
Very friendly attentive server. Food was disappointing, fish overcooked
Good experience. We are as regular here as any other favorite restaurants in the area.
Excellent restaurant! The food was amazing- the chef had a wonderful menu of Italian cuisine with a twist of flavors. Our waiter Alex was knowledgeable about the food and very personable. Will definitely return!
I love this restaurant! The entire dining experience is top notch, no complaints. The food is outstanding with service to match!
We sat outside, the street scene is lively in front. The server was adorable, extremely knowledgeable about the menu and wines with which to pair each dish. The grilled Caesar salad was great. I had a special for that night, clam cacio a Pepe, it was fabulous. My friend had vegetable lasagna. It was delicious. We would both eat here again
An Asheville gem. Excellent food with friendly efficient service. We enjoyed the terrace on a fairly quiet street. Try the Crab Cakes and risotto with a glass of Italian red wine. What could be better.
The food is always delicious at modesto. The chef knows really well how to prepare fish dishes. Part of the experience is the food and drink, the other part is the atmosphere and service. Tonight (which is an outlier) the service was not as good as in the recent past. There is always room for improvement. Our waitress was inattentive, lacked warmth and personality. Did not mention that we were there celebrating an anniversary. Swing and a miss this time. We'll try again.
A very welcoming atmosphere along with delicious food next time in Asheville a must !
Always love coming back here. Alex was superb as was the octopus! See you in February!
The food was amazing (lobster ravioli and seafood risotto) and quick. It was on the table less than 10 minutes after we ordered. The server was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. We enjoyed our entire experience, including dessert and one of the best decaf americanos I’ve ever had.
Food was great. Excellent service. Large portions. We were in Asheville for a long weekend and found this place by luck. Would definitely go again and recommend to anyone.
It was a very nice experience from the beginning of the evening till the end. They’re very attentive and the friendly staff were excellent. Kudos to chefs Hector and his incredible staff..
Amazing food and great service! Best Italian in Asheville!
Best octopus appetizer ever, amazing pasta dishes. So glad we found this gem while in Asheville!
My wife salmon was a little over done. Otherwise our favorite
It was real busy and service was therefore slow. But the food was excellent.
Food overall was good but........ took about 25 min to have water brought to the table. Also they are VERY NON-ACCOMMODATING to any menu adjustments or substitutions. The waiter thought he was doing me a favor for bring a side of pasta instead of potatoes... give me a break.
Food was good but too much hassle ordering. Other restaurants are as good if not better and are more customer friendly. That said, I do not plan on returning.
Great crab cakes, but carbonara dishes were excessively watery
We ate outside, service was top notch starting with the host to the waiter who took care of us. Food was terrific with the exception of a veal dish where the meat had not been pounded or cut thin enough to be tender. Everything else was outstanding from the charcuterie starter to panna cottage dessert. Would definitely return.
Simply excellent; food, service, friendliness, all top-notch.
Delicious food and great ambiance!
My dinner was too seasoned .... nice piece of fish too doctored .., everything not close enough to the real food ....
The food is very good. The service is slow and off the mark. We were thought we had plenty of time for dessert before going to the theater, but that couldn't get worked out. The room wasn't that busy. I'd call it distracted service.
Wonderful meal, great service
Awesome dinner. We enjoyed everything. Ate outdoors. Very pleasant.
Wonderful terrace dinner with excellent service, fresh pasta and seafood combined with Italian wine....what could be better?
Great food and service as always
Always wonderful. The chef issue very talented with a menu that changes often. Really special
Very nice experience. Ate there two nights in a row because it was that good. Monkfish and scallops are great, although it would have been nice to get two scallops, not one. Service was great. Ate outside and it was also wonderful.
I EAT PIZZA ALL OVER THE WORLD. THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST PIZZAS I HAVE EVER HAD!!!! SALADS AND DINNER WERE GOOD TOO BUT TRY THE PIZZA!!
It was disappointing.
Delicious food! Two of the best dishes my husband and I have ever tasted. The wood fired Octopus and fried Calamari were fabulous. Our server (Brad) was excellent, sharing recommendations and pride in the chef. We both had pasta dishes for our entrees which were made with authentic sauces - carbonara & puttanesca. Excellent food & cocktails- we’ll definitely return.
My husband had the chicken Parmesan and I had the roasted vegetables and crab cake appetizer. They were both very good. We sat in the window. The service was a little slow, but then they accommodated us when we were 15 minutes late trying to find a parking spot.
Nice ambiance, decent service, mediocre food at best.
We were seated outside which was nice as the inside dining area is quite small. Food is outstanding. Service is great. Overall very good.
Algie was our waiter and he was one of the friendliest most attentive servers we’ve ever had. I had the seafood risotto where the lobster and scallops were cooked to perfection. My wife had the vegetable lasagna and she said it was the best vegetable lasagna she has ever eaten. This restaurant is definitely one of our local favorites.
It's always nice to be surprised with a restaurant that you're trying for the very first time. Service - terrific. Food- delicious, staff- friendly and accommodating. Thank you Fred for a wonderful suggestion. A very memorable evening.
