Modica’s most famous restaurant is touristy for sure (the menu is a massive book with dishes described in several different languages, plus photographs of everything). But the simple (read very rustic) Sicilian home cooking and affordable prices still draw locals who come for dinner presumably on the nights when mamma is not cooking. In the summer, ask to sit on the al fresco patio out front to watch the bustling street scene of Corso Umberto.  A few of the most famous dishes to try: arancini (fried rice balls stuffed with an incredible tomato-based sauce); cavatelli, a rustic pasta dish with broccoli; and lenticchia, a hearty stew made with lentils.
