Go hungry and order the turista menu (1 appetizer, 1 pasta, 1 meat, 1 dessert).
My absolute favorite! – Modo Mio is my absolute favorite restaurant ever! Anytime I go anywhere else Modo Mio is what I am comparing it to. I love this place because the food is amazing and it's so reasonably priced. I don't think you can find a better value in this city.
I always do the pre-fixe. For $33 or $34 ( I forget the exact price) you get four courses. The food is high quality. The chef at Modo Mio is not afraid to play with different flavor combinations.
For appetizer, I always get the mussels in red spicy. You can ask for them not spicy as well. I love the agnoletti for pasta. For entree they always feature a fresh fish, which is often Branzino (which I often get.) Their bread is so tasty and they give you some sort of olive oil and creamy cheese (marscapone perhaps?) which I love!
Make sure you say hi to Betty the bread lady. She's the best!
Best dinner experience! – Modo mio is hands down my favorite place to dine in Philly. Warm atmosphere, the owner/chef often comes out to great his guests, especially large groups. Great, creative food options, good sized portions and you can't beat the price fixe menu! I've made this my special occasion dinner choice for the past few years.
Wonderful Food – Had the $33 fixed price option. Includes appetizer, pasta, entree and dessert. Great bargain and plenty of food. the food was attractively presented and excellent. You won't leave hungry.
Tables are relatively close together, but we struck up a conversation with the people next to us who even shared a glass of their wine with us. That might be the exception, but I think it may be representative of the type of people who eat there.
Service was excellent and dinner lasted about 1 1/2 hrs. Just right!
