We were looking forward to a special meal for our last night in the south of Sicily and booked a table at Fattoria delle Torri. To our surprise we were greeted by the owner in a cold manner. We still do not understand why.
We decided to take the fish based Degustazione menus and with the exception of the first dish made of a choice of raw fish and seafoods, the remainder were cold or tasteless. Curiously enough, there was a locally designed gazpacho soup with a piece of dry bread crowned by a tasteless minuscule segment of unslated herring bathing in a cold base of cellular liquid. Strangely, the same base used for the gazpacho soup was used for the next dish of fish tortellini which were served half cooked.
The menus included a choice of 3 wines and the last one, the Malvasia, was not suitable for the occasion.
The service was handled by apprentices and a plate was removed before the guest had finished so was a glass full of wine a little later.
To conclude, the evening is not to be remembered.

Set behind narrow alleys in and old palace.

We were the only diners (lunch) on our last day in Modica. What a real treat. Exceptional service, incredible food (great variety - not just seafood) and beautiful surrounds.

Get a dessert. I don't normally, but I'm so glad I did.

We had such a great meal. The best dish we tried by far was the cavatelli alla norma. The parmigiano was a tiny bit bitter. The tiramisu with chocolate was delicious. Highly recommended.

Having trawled the mysterious alleyways, unshowy shopping opportunities and multi-layered town, it was time to feed the beast. Tucked away in an alley, we loved this trattoria set in Baroque splendour. Dinner was served under the lemon trees. We reversed the order and started with cactus fruit mousse followed by classic regional fare. Wines pared well by our sommelier and service can not be faulted. Had to use the femme's corporate credit card to fuel the bill but this joint is worth it.

Very high end cooking - charming professional staff. Expensive but worth it. We had the tasting menu which was very good indeed. Ask for a table overlooking the terrace.
