Modo Mio is one of my family’s favorite restaurant. They always get excited when we plan to go. Aldo, our server, and Brock provided us with excellent service. You can expect the bread to be gobbled down. And it looked over the wine list -- looks to me like Phil the owner selects the wines himself because the wines are superb, fairly prices and not commonly on other restaurant wine list -- so if you go, request wine recommendation. I had the seafood risotto, one my favorites. My sons have salmon and chicken. We share among ourselves because of the entrees taste so good. My sense is that you will be delighted by Modo Mio.
Outdoor seating comfortable. Umbrellas have build in heaters and they have an ample supply of portables for each table.
Great food, service and ambiance
Great service, great staff. Memorable experience due to service.
Dogs are allowed , which is good but dogs should be trained to be quite and not barking all the time.
Normally, we are very pleased with our experience at Modo Mio. However, we feel they were probably experiencing employee issues and hoped that the issue is resolved the next time we have dinner. First, I requested indoor, but there were no tables available when we arrived, second the waitress was inexperienced and needed to ask again what I would like to order. After waiting an hour for food, she indicated there was an issue and the order had been lost, but our meal would be comped. When we received the bill, we were charged for everything and we asked what was comped? She indicated that the salad was not on there and we indicated we never got it. Very disappointing when it was a meal I was very much looking forward to.
Had dinner there with friends from Corona Del Mar Nov 20. Always wonderful sliced gratis mushrooms and superb food. Our waitress Cassidy who has served us before is wonderful. The setting and temperature are perfect and all in all a tip too evening.
Birthday , lack of education with sever related to wine & dinner
Food and service is always superb at Modo Mio. Got quite loud when a large group was seated next to us, but everything else was wonderful.
Corkage fee of $25 per bottle is a little pricey compared to other places in the same price range.
Menu selection is great. Friend had the special stripped bass which was perfect. Soft texture and the temp was right on.
Restaurant is a go to for our special occasions
Very comfortable outdoor dining. Heaters were very effective.
The food, service and atmosphere were exceptional. The pastas were fresh and delicious and our server was a delight! We'll be back soon!
Food was excellent and service was attentive.
Always good food, stoli martini, and great service! One of my favorite places to eat!
Really great service from our server Gustavo. He explained every dish and was extremely helpful and friendly. The food was out of this world. Phenomenal!
Wow! Talk about a fully stocked bar! And dogs are allowed!
It’s a great neighborhood restaurant where staff treats everyone like ‘family’. We love going to Modo Mio, and always make it a point to also take house guests there when possible. Food is YUMMY-there’s nothing about it we don’t like!!!
Had another delicious dinner at Modo Mio, second time this week. Salmon & spinach salad were fantastic. Gustavo gave us Excellent service.
Great server (?alejandra) friendly, knowledgeable made the evening even better. Food great
I was extremely disappointed with the service on this occasion. I have been a very regular diner at this restaurant and have always been impressed with their service - but this time it really was poor. From the time we were seated, to being offered a beverage; and then the time lapse between receiving the beverage order to the time that our server took our food order was ridiculous.
Modo Mio is one of our favorites, and it didn’t disappoint Monday night. The Branzino & Agnello lamb chops were
excellent. The tiramisu is outstanding. Another fabulous evening and dinner.
Dining at Modo Mio was a wonderful experience for my wife and me. From a gratis plate of seasoned sliced mushrooms accompanied by a plate of warm, crusty bread upon being seated through the last bite, everything was delicious. The shellfish and seafood dishes were exquisite, and the pasta was perfectly al dente. The wine list has something for everyone. The service was excellent throughout. Sadly, we were too full to try the desserts.
The Burrata salad was excellent.
The pasts was nothing to write about.
Gnocchi were inconsistent (some good, some dense) and the sauce was just OK.
The Bolognese was also just OK.
Service was hit and miss. Friendly and quick at first but the food took forever to come out, and we had to call our waitress for the cheese (which was clearly not parmesan).
Bottom line: Ok if you're close by and crave Italian food. There are better Italian restaurants in NPB/CDM/Irvine/Tustin
Wonderful food, superb service. Marinated mushrooms and sourdough (I think) bread served upon getting seated - a nice touch of welcome. They make a lovely Manhattan, too.
Very nice location with a Mediterranean feel. Good, simple food that’s well priced and competently served.
I took my clients to Modo Miyo last night for dinner -- wow ... it was so busy for a Sunday evening at 5pm.
Our server Kailey was wonderful and we all enjoyed our time together.
Good food and loved the server. She made our experience so welcoming and can’t wait to go back again
We very much enjoyed our dinner at Modo Mio. Our server was extremely nice, the menu had a number of different tasty options and the prices were reasonable for what they offered.
Great service and wonderful food!
Always a nice dinner experience. Love the expanded outdoor seating areas.
Moto Mio is one of our favorite places to eat. The food is consistently outstanding and the service is excellent. Our server, Ava, was professional and friendly. We had a very enjoyable evening!
The waiter was very kind and provided us with extra bread and great service! The food was delicious and it was not too loud. I will definitely be coming here again.
Highly recommend ! Food was outstanding.
They do a great job!
Love it, and outdoor dining is wonderful
We had a business meeting and waited over 30 minutes to get drinks? After waiting so long things did get better thereafter. Not a good initial impression! The food was fantastic!
Amazing. took my wife for her 50th birthday...Gustavo was amazing.
The outdoor dining situation was well done - plenty of heaters and umbrellas. The service was prompt, and the food was delicious. We will definitely return.
Excellent food; my husband still is talking about it. The veal scallopine was great as was the chicken. Good wine list; similar prices as other places. Our friends liked the special mixed drinks menu as well. Friendly and quick services.
My gf and I love coming here. Definitely the “go-to” spot for Italian food (& we live in Irvine)
The setting and food was just wonderful!! We can’t wait to go back!!
