While on vacation for our birthdays, we like to try something different every night. This looked like a popular place, busy on a Thursday evening. Food was OK, a little overpriced for what you get. Our waitress just took our order & brought us the check-never asked if we wanted another drink or if the food was good. She was... More

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

Went here with friends on a Wednesday evening during Restaurant Week. Extensive wine list and a full bar. No corkage fee on Mondays and Tuesdays. They ordered soup (minestrone and the zuppa gamberi, a cioppino-like seafood soup), my wife and I both had Caesar salads. Mains were the salsiccie, risotto salmone, and a shrimp scampi appetizer over pasta instead the... More

We were in Newport visiting from Chicago around holidays. We dined here with extended family and had a delicious meal and a great time. Sabrina was our server and she was fabulous! We have a tradition of opening Christmas crackers and wearing the paper crowns during dinner. Sabrina was such a blast, she opened her "popper" and wore her crown... More

Title above says most of what we thought. Big pro (or con): Kids are welcomed! Lots of families. Food was hit / miss but high prices for the quality ($35 per person for appetizer and main). Service was good. Wine list was short but pretty well priced if you know wines. Parking was easy.

Description
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.
