Peter McAndrews, Executive Chef of Modo Mio (Italian for “my way”), has taken traditional Italian cuisine and done it his way. The restaurant recreates the ambiance of an Italian osteria, with a quaint, homey setting that takes guests right into the heart of old Italy. Diners can experience Chef McAndrew’s innovative approach to rustic Italia through the scores of regional dishes from Sicily and Northern Italy, as well as appetizing Italian-American creations. Scrumptious pastas, such as the Agnolotti in creamy almond butter sauce, are complemented by a variety of rich entrees like the Braciolette, a sausage-stuffed steak topped by melted provolone, all at reasonable prices. Modo Mio is a great place for friends and family, where traditional Italian cuisines are made deliciously original.

Customer Reviews & Ratings
Modo Mio is the most
This place is a gem. Its tiny and usually crowded but the food is excellent. The Chef uses very imaginative combinations of flavors in everything from his antipaste to the desserts.. We have dined there 2 times and have found the wait staff to be friendly, helpful and very efficient and the quality of the food consistently excellent. The variety of entrees are complimented by the pastas salads and antipaste. The menu tourista - four courses for 30 - is a great deal especially if everyone trys something different then you can sample everything . I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
