    Sat at the bar. First course quick and great. Second course: we waited for over 30 minutes after first. They kept telling us, any minute. While others around us who ordered later were served and actually paid and left. So: we paid and left. No second course. From our vantage we could watch the kitchen. Chaos galore!!! All the while bar tenders party and have fun. We love MM and have been regulars since they opened. We are very disappointed!!!!!

    Our server was wonderful. She made some excellent suggestions and was quite attentive. My swordfish was fresh and expertly prepared and my husband’s chicken parmigiana was superb as usual. Additionally, Modo Mio makes the best martini in town.

    I happen to love the Eggplant Parm and they didn't disappoint me with this order. I would suggest ordering a side of red sauce as this is not a small dish for the feint of appetites. The wait staff was professional as usual and we love the atmosphere. Put this restaurant at the top of your Italiano list!

    The food was pretty bad. We ordered fish and vegetables but the dish was full of oil and hot pepper flakes. Also chicken Siciliano which was a chicken padded in flour and drenched in an awful sauce to a point that the whole dish was a paste of gooey flour. Also most of the lasagna was burnt. So dissatisfying and disappointing

    We had a reservation for 6pm and we were seated promptly. The meals look so long......over an hour to arrive. We really like the restaurant a lot but the wait was tedious. We are coming this Sat again ( booked by Susan Alpert or David Smith) at 6pm., for 4 people. I hope we have better service. Thank you

    Although the waitress was pleasant, she appeared overwhelmed and unable to get the drinks correct. Entrees were either overcooked or under cooked. Salad was skimpy and overpriced. This was a different experience than normal.

    Five stars every time we dine here and five stars also for our waitress, India. This time we had the caprese, meatloaf and the steak. For dessert we had the spumoni and the chocolate gelato with the shot of espresso. A fantastic experience
