The service and dinner were outstanding. It is a small place so a reservation is essential. Lively ambiance!
Excellent service and food!
Innovative, delicious dinner with excellent service.
The service was great ! There were so many options on the menu, it was hard to pick. I was very happy with the Shrimp encrusted Flounder.
Always a GREAT experience - excellent food. Missed seeing the owner Mr Diaz this time. Will definitely return, perhaps on Dec 8th. Cheers to all J Munoz
The food is always very good at Modesto and the menu is quite extensive, esp. for a small restaurant. The only downside on this visit was an overly involved server. We sat at the high top at the bar and Alex was too present in our experience and conversation. We appreciate good service, but felt he was way too much of a presence. He meant well and only wanted to be helpful and informative, so we understand. Next time we’ll wait for a table. Still our top choice for dinner!
Our server Ted was fantastic and suggested the most perfect dishes! The seafood risotto was to die for.
Very impressed . Wonderful service.
Looking forward to returning
It appeared that there had been an issue with opentable and overbooking the restaurant. I will say that despite this situation, we were still seated and served graciously. It is always a nice dinner out at this restaurant.
The food here was good. I got the lobster ravioli. My husband got the Spanish mackerel, but it was loaded with bones which he was not expecting. He got frustrated with taking them out of his mouth. We got what we thought would be a lovely window seat in the front room to the left when you walk in. It was such a cramped space with way too many tables/seats for the area. Every time the waiter came to the table next to us we had his back side right in our faces and vise versa for the other table. It was very uncomfortable.
Food was wonderful as always. Server was knowledgeable about the menu and made some excellent recommendations. His service was attentive.
Food was excellent... good portions and efficient service.
Alex, Our fabulous waiter, made all the difference. He recommended dishes that were unique and that we loved. We were entertaining out of town guests, and they loved the restaurant. The food and the ambiance was terrific.
Wait staff awesome! Food ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! Everything!
We ended up sitting at a high top table next to the bar area. Service was excellent. Loved the food.
Food is always good here. We both had fish and it was great. Excellent service by staff that have worked here for a long time. Very special place.
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 ....
