Modo Mio Restaurant Review

: The simple, country-style Italian cuisine of Rimini (near Venice) dominates the menu at Gian Franco Bertolino’s inviting restaurant. We enjoyed the zuppa pomodoro, an intensely flavored tomato soup with hunks of chewy bread; and the penne porcini, satisfying pasta with meaty mushrooms. Another effective starter is the plate of baby artichokes seasoned with Parmesan, lemon and extra virgin olive oil. Seafood is plentiful, highlighted by cioppino Adriatico: swordfish, ahi, green-lipped mussels, calamari, shrimp and scallops drizzled with a light tomato stock. Other entrées include a pounded veal chop with herbs, and a premium Angus tagliata. Lunch features sautéed calamari in a light tomato sauce and a grilled chicken panino with Gorgonzola. The wine list is split evenly between Italian and California producers, and can be rather pricey. Tiramisu is a signature dessert.
