The food was good, but nothing spectacular.. And I did not like how their service was. I don't know why, but it was hostile. with two servers alternately coming to our table and ask how the food is. I am not kidding, they must visited...More

This used to be a favorite of ours until a new owner took over. Food is sometimes served cold, under cooked or over cooked. Salads are bland. We no longer frequent this restaurant

We were delighted with this family upscale Italian restaurant. Everything served was fresh and homemade. It was very crowded and a bit noisy, but the service was excellent and we will be returning. Monday-Wednesday there is free wine corkage!! Judy from Savannah Ga

Dining at Modo Mio is a delight, thanks to the efforts of owner Gian Franco Bertolino and his talented staff. While Modo Mio translates to my way, in Italian, Bertolino has infused his restaurant with his own standard of excellence.

From the moment diners are greeted, as they enter the Newport Coast, California location, they are enveloped into a haven of warmth and hospitality. Bertolino and company are dedicated to creating and serving superb Northern Italian specialties, to their devoted clientele, in an ambiance that is both inviting and relaxing.
