This unpretentious-appearing restaurant in downtown Modesto has a regular following of frequent loyal diners. The restaurant has undergone some renovations recently which have made dining here even more pleasurable. A downstairs bathroom was added. The half of the restaurant that seats bigger parties has been decorated recently to match the main half so its two parts finally look like they... More

Ir's homey and fun. Small plates are delicious. The atmosphere is friendly and casual. Paul Tremayne, the owner, is on the floor most nights, chatting with the customers and mixing drinks on request. He has a great background in the wine business and keeps a good stock of unusual and well priced wines. If you're looking for a moderately priced... More

Food it was fresh, excellent blend of flavors. Had the lamb burger. It was cooked perfectly, sole spices that allowed the flavor to its heights. Pricing is high but... More

Not smart enough to make reservation for Sat. night so had to wait 20 mins for table while a group in the back room nursed their water after dessert. Finally got another table. Pork scallopini outstanding, beets excellent, salmon so-so, duck comfit excellent, bacon-prunes delicious, shrimp so-so. With our own bottle of wine + tip got out for $150

Concetta's is our favorite in town and we travel all over for great food. The small plates are great for those that love to taste a variety of foods or share plates. Every day they have a high end specialty pizza and quesadilla. The spicy shrimp deviled eggs are amazing. The menu rotates often, from duck confit to lamb meatballs... More

We ate at Concetta when in Modesto for a wedding the next day. The food was absolutely wonderful - roasted cauliflower perfectly spiced, light and bright beet salad, and fish that melts in your mouth. Delightful service - we live far but we'll be back!

This place is s best for two or more as you get small plates and share. I't almost always busy, and they have a very professional wait staff. It can be noisy on the weekends. The food is great.....new combinations and flavors all the time.
