We were seated at station #10; a charming , intimate corner table that concealed kirchen activity and sounds.
We ordered two entrees. The complete , cooked Dover Sole was delivered to our table for our perusal ansd approval. Then it was returned to the kitchen to be filetted before being served to us. It was perfectly seasoned; perfectly prepared and although it is a thin fish, it remained moist and flavorful.
The second entree was grilled , herbed, loin lamb chops , ordered to be prepared medium. And this too was perfectly prepared with a warm, pink center. We requested al dente olive oil/ garlic linguine. It was an excellent accompaniment. Their Tolusa Pinot Noir contributed to being a delightful complimentary dining partner.
Service throughout was impeccable, friendly, engaging , knowledgeable and timely during the course of our evening which ended with a double espresso and tiramisu, Kalua soaked lady fingers. This was our sweet denouement.
Our Pali graduation celebration was perfect, everyone loved the food!
Love Modo Mio in Pacific Palisades because it is consistently good. The servers have been there for
years, which I love and they are always friendly and professional!
We always enjoy Modo Mio. Excellent food. Excellent service. It is great place to meet with friends for a meal.
It was a delicious dinner and well served by an attentive and experienced waiter. Between us we had the fresh branzino, a lasagna and a risotto. All were well prepared. There is a good selection of wines by the glass. The room is quiet and we weren't fighting the noise of other diners nor of loud music. A pleasure!
Modo Mio is a perfect example of what a neighborhood restaurant should be. The atmosphere is ideal, casual, service is good, and food is well cooked and predictable. It is very comfortable.
Lovely neighborhood restaurant with delicious takes on traditional and contemporary Italian cuisine. Great service and good selections from a standard menu and seasonal/daily specials.
This is a longtime neighborhood standby for us. We probably go three times a month. The room is actually quite beautiful, the staff members are nice, and the food is excellent. Highly recommended: risotto del padre (chicken and asparagus), chicken Siciliano, and a great Bolognese sauce that can be had with any pasta shape.
Modo Mio never disappoints! Fantastic food and service.
Modo Mio is, hands down, the best restaurant in the Palisades. If you close your eyes, you would swear you are in Italy. The food is as favorable, the aroma is as tantalizing and the variety is as great as any fine restaurant in Rome. The servers are a perfect mix of professionalism and friendliness, the service is provided at a perfect pace and the other diners are polite. I would eat there every day if I could, and often lunch there two to three times a week when possible. No-one I've ever dined with has had anything but a perfect meal!!
A lovely restaurant for lunch or dinner. The food is consistently good. The shaved artichoke salad is wonderful. Veal Milanese is outstanding.
My wife and I really enjoyed our dinner at Modo Mio. My seafood was superb and my wife loved her ravioli. The service was attentive, but not overbearing.
Great food, a real find. Feels like a small neighborhood restaurant but has really good quality and tasty Italian food. Desserts were also amazing, especially the chocolate flourless cake and the apple tart.
Reliable basic Italian in a quiet pleasant setting. Lack of noise is the chief attraction when choosing among other options.
Modo Mio food is always surprisingly good. Location is "cowntown Pacifica Palisades" and parking very convenient. Value is excellent. Relaxed atmosphere and Very comfortable.
The hostess a female brown hair was really rude. It's like we were bothering her to seat us. Then later on in the night we asked her something and again was really snippy. But we had a fabulous waiter and busboy. Food was good not amazing but worth the price. Very quiet so we could enjoy our friends.
Always perfect service and food. Love the Dover sole!!!!
This was probably an off night for this restaurant, as we had dined there before.
On Sunday, my entrée was cold (it was one I had ordered previously, so I know what it should be like).
We had to ask the waiter for plates for our shared appetizer--grilled vegetables. He was not real happy to provide them.
Dishes at our table were not picked up.
Modo Mio is a friendly neighborhood gem with delicious Northern Italian cuisine. Great pastas, delicious meat dishes like chicken Milanese, scottadito (lamb chops) and fish like Branzino. The room is cozy and feels like a country home. A lovely choice for friends and family
The food was very. The help was accomdating. It is convenient for parking near the elevator. I had banana squash soup that was excellent. The staff was very accommodating and helpful.
