Modo Mio - Newport Coast

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.

"We were disappointed previously that thickening was added to the pasta sauce and were pleased that they abandoned that preparation."

"We visited this restaurant during the Newport Restaurant week and it was a very good surprise. I had the restaurant week menu with an entree of salmon and risoto that was tasty and my wife had a capellini with vegetable sauce that was also good. The only low point was the tiramisu since it was too dry."

"Had a very enjoyable dining experience with another couple, mid week, with window seating.
We had both eaten here several times in past and have always had a delicious dinner. I had an excellent mushroom ravioli, my wife liked the chicken involtini and our enjoyed pasta dishes. The tiramisu is excellent.

"We stowed away to Modo Mio inspired by another Newport Beach Restaurant Week Monday. It was our first time at dining here. We were seated at a window table which afforded us a peek of the ocean blue on the horizon looking past a parking lot. Nice, nonetheless. The restaurant week menu was a motto bene value and even more generous when a complimentary appetizer of marinated mushrooms were presented. Tangy yum! We enjoyed our 3-course, plus bonus appetizer, meals… savoring them with some post-meal takeaway. We highly recommend the vibrant, colorful, tasty Ravioli trio. Plenty is the a recurrent theme. The lemon cheesecake was a lovely citrus note as a meal finale. P.S. The service aimed to please, but sometimes didn't. The service was nonetheless, well-intentioned. Thank you for the Monday lunch experience, Newport Restaurant Week and Modo Mio! As to Italia, we shall return!"

"We celebrated my husband's birthday at Modo Mio, his choice, and his favorite Italian restaurant in Newport Beach area, though technically this is in Newport Coast. They have a delicious selection of salads. Mine had fresh mozzarella cubes, arugala, orange slices and sliced, toasted almonds. It was a meal in itself. They had a set menu available which offered exceptionally good value and also a varied selection of three different courses. My husband and our adult grandson ordered the affogato desert - not sure of my spelling on that, but it was plenty worth the extra $5. The restaurant is always crowded and quite loud. But, people seem to be eating with gusto and enjoying each other and the food. This is quite the spot to go for a really good Italian meal."

"What a pleasant surprise! Was just looking for someplace close to where we were staying to meet an out-of-town friend. Found a very pleasant comfortable place with menu items I haven't seen for some time--calamari steaks, perfectly cooked. As was the seafood in the seafood pasta. My wife put the salmon in her top 5. Great wine list. We'll be back!"

"This was an excellent choice for our early New Years Eve early dinner. Even though they were very busy, our 6 PM reservation was honored immediately. We asked for a quiet table (we're an older couple) and they accomodated that with no questions. Service was prompt, attentive without being overbearing and we were not rushed. The food was excellent as it always is. This is one of our favorite spots in the OC beach area. My husband had their specialty, Osso Bucco and it was done to perfection. I had the lamb chops which were perfect in every way. My tricolore salad was huge and so very well prepared in a mini chop style with the colors in separate piles on the plate. The bottle of pinot noir I ordered was a pricey one but oh, so wonderful. Overall, Modo Mio is a wonderful restaurant to add to your repertoir of dining experiences."

"New Years Eve dinner with cousin and my wife. Sleek lines in newly remodeled interior. Very comfortable and welcoming. Enjoyed shared meat and cheese appetizer that was wonderful. The lasagna was excellent, both the meat and the cheese versions. I had veal cutlet. Filled the entire plate. Perfect NYE dinner, reasonable prices, very attentive service."
