I was taken to Torre Palazzelle by my neighbours recently to try the gourmet pizzas. This has to be the most beautiful and atmospheric pizzeria/restaurant I've been to in Sicily. We dined al fresco under a full moon in the courtyard of this converted 17th century castle. Since we were a party of 13, we opted for the Pizza tasting... More

This chic restaurant is within a castle-like building 15 mins drive from Modica. We were staying at Il Granaio Agriturismo which is a 5 min walk away so it was a great alternative dinner option (although the food at the agriturismo was brilliant!). We went on a Wed night and it was packed - mainly local families it seemed, most... More

Inside rather cold and lacked atmosphere. Not many diners. Opens very late. Food was OK but wouldn't rush back.

This is one of maybe 2 or 3 places in the area that are up market. If you are looking for a good cheap dinner than this isn't the place for you. On the other hand if you want an eating experience and are willing to pay for that special evening with that someone special than it's location should be... More

A large building in the countryside which is a smart restaurant and a pizzeria. The young staff are very attentive and plenty of locals pop in. The ambience is of a smart restaurant but you can stck to the pizza menu which is excellent - try the pizza with broad been purée. Well worth a drive but even better if... More

A fantastic place with great food and atmosphere. We had a fish based starter and a pizza. Both were 10/10.

We have enjoyed two excellent meals in the Torre Palazzelle over the last week. The restaurant is situated in a lovely historic house in the lovely Modican countryside. You enter through an enclosed courtyard straight out of a Montalbano set, the dining area is in a valuted series of rooms where the atmosphere is simple but elegant. The title of... More

This is definitely worth a visit if you are in the Modica area. You have a choice of a reasonably priced pizza menu or a high quality a la carte menu. We have experienced both and would highly recommend a visit. Service from Rosalba and Serena is excellent - and they will be very patient with the non-Italian speaking diner.... More
