My boyfriend and I went on our first trip together and this place definitely made it memorable! Our server (he seemed like he could be the manager and he worked the bar. Had brown hair, but I cannot remember his name for the life of me!) was incredible. He knew everything on the menu by heart, had the drinks to us instantly, and they were incredible! They tasted and looked picture perfect. I had the Risotto Di Mare and it was the best risotto I have ever had in my entire life. The lobster, mussels, and shrimp were incredible in it! We drank our dessert and I had the chocolate covered pretzel martini and it was so amazing I wanted to call him up for the recipe when we got back to the air bnb (LOL). Definitely a place I would recommend if you want delicious and fresh seafood/Italian along with amazing service! I cannot wait to come back!
It all started out with the charming waiter, Alex. The ceasar salad was one of the best I've had. We then ordered the fig pizza which was outstanding. Would definitely go back but for dinner next time.
The food and drinks were amazing! Our waiter talked us into the lobster ravioli over a pizza for our third choice. We didn’t love it and regretted going with our instinct but the martinis, old fashioned, salads, rigatoni, mushroom pasta and lavender creme brûlée were so good we couldn’t complain! We felt a little sold on the more expensive meal, but that’s on us. Otherwise and overall great experience!!! We will be back and recommend it to everyone.
Excellent Restaurant, great food and very diverse menu!
Everything was great except about half way thru our meal, our eyes were stinging. Perhaps the cleaning supplies used to clean the restaurant were too strong. We were the first table of the day and were inside.
Marvelous! Food, drinks, and service were superb!
We dined here for our honeymoon in the Asheville area. Our server was very knowledgeable and made great suggestions. We enjoyed the Latin take on Italian food. Everything was delicious and fresh. It was a perfect evening out.
Outdoors. Great meal.
The lobster was fresh and pasta dishes perfectly cooked. My lavender martini was the best I’ve had. Waitress was so interactive and fun. Great time.
Service was very slow but they seemed short staffed. The waiter was pleasant. The food was really good as was the price. I would go back for the food and hope that the kitchen was running more smoothly.
second visit to this cute and delicious italian restaurant in the grove arcade - just as good as the first! super friendly service, extensive menu, delicious salads and entrees. we love this place!
Dear LGWvirginia, Thank you for your kind review. We pride ourselves in our food & service and are happy to have you! We hope to see you again soon.
We sat at the bar and our waiter / bartender was very attentive and helpful. His drinks were delicious and were recommended by Adam.
We started with a cheese/prosciutto / eggplant appy board that was stupendous.
The Kale salad was terrific as was the soup.
I had the seared tuna over mushroom risotto...5 stars!
My wife had the lobster love served over pasta... just as good.
Our friends had the bolognese sauce over the pasta and it was also spectacular!
We can’t wait to return... hopefully Adam will be there again as he made our meal!
Dear Greasers, Thank you for your review! Adam is our star Bar Manager and loves to meet new guests! Upon sharing this review, he remembered you and said you were a wonderful group. Please stop by to see us again. Tip: Adam is here Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday evenings! Thank you!
This is our first time dining here since the pandemic. After we were seated, we were told that they were not serving tap water at this time, so we ordered bottles. Over the course of our meal we drank 3 bottles of water (pint sized) and were charged $5 a piece. This is outrageous. We will not return if we cannot order tap water. $15 for water is incredulous. If they chose not to serve tap water for some kind of reason related to the pandemic, then whatever water they served should have been free or at cost. We did see some folks at the bar get a big bottle of water for just a buck. What's up with that?
Dear Macki, Thank you for your review. We have had to adjust policies in the wake of the pandemic to minimize risk for staff and patrons. Our choice to not serve tap water has been well thought through, as we no longer serve drinks that require pitchers and continuous stops at the water station. Unfortunately, we are unable to give Acqua Panna, San Pellegrino or Mountain Valley waters away for free or at cost, as we are a local business navigating through a 50% capacity mandate.
Modesto is one of our favorites for both business and personal use. It has a wonderful atmosphere, tremendous food selection, and the preparation and flavors are really great. Don't miss this gem downtown.
JLKAVL, Thank you for the review! We love to cater to all guests, whether business, personal, or otherwise! We hope to see you again soon.
As a diner in the “new normal” this restaurant had spaced out seating inside and out. We dined outside and enjoyed shade and a nice breeze. Ambience for having table service as opposed to take out was so appreciated. The upscale menu provided great variety and tasty options. Wine was served cold!
Wonderful lunch offerings. Everything fresh and well prepared. Excellent service. Do not hesitate to go and enjoy an terrace lunch.
Food was delicious as always, but I think either our server forgot to put our order in or she just forgot about us for some time.
Our food was fantastic, we had the snapper and a pizza both superb!
Laura, Thank you for your review! We get our seafood fresh from Charleston, SC several times per week. I am proud to say our pizzaiolo has been with us for 3 years now and is really mastering her craft. I will pass along your good words! Please visit us again.
Food was great. Just did not like the pushy upsale on bottles of wine.
For years, we have looked forward to going out to this consistently very good restaurant. We always enjoy the patio, especially these days!
This was our first time dining here and it was to celebrate a sweet 16 birthday. We adored it! Luke was our waiter and was extremely helpful in explaining the menu to us and answering all of our questions. We will be back!
We have been to Modesto Trattoria several times and have been pleased every time. It is a wonderful place to dine outdoors. the food is great and the people watching is fun.
Loved it and will be back. Loved how everything was fresh and local!
Overall not bad. Some food had better prep than other dishes. Nothing screamed i must go back for this.. wait the calamari was pretty well done with deep friend lemon slices!
Last anniversary before getting married. Met in the middle with some friends in Asheville, and found Modesto Trattoria. Everything was amazing from Alex our waiter to every single dish. 11/10 would recommend!
This was our first visit, but not our last. Food was better than we had expected, this has to be one of the best restaurants in Asheville.
Outstanding food and service. Would highly recommend. One of our favorite restaurants in Asheville.
Modesto’s never disappoints! The food is always on point and the service from Rachel is the best! I’m partial but it is my favorite AVL restaurant without a doubt.
The food was outstanding - one of the best meals I have had in a long time. The service was great and the patio / street seating was nice! Highly recommend.
The food was so delicious! Alex our waiter was amazing!
Great experience. Fantastic food. You won’t be disappointed!
Modesto's food is delicious and the ambiance is lovely.
Great to get back to it --
Lunched outside was a wonderful treat --
Disorganized and sorry we went. We were told to keep masks on when not eating but table across from us wasn’t told to for example. Suggest avoiding this place until pandemic is well past us.
Beverly, We tell all of our patrons that they must wear masks while in the restaurant while not eating and drinking. Perhaps you did not hear the host or server tell the table across from you, but it was mentioned. It is our duty to inform the public of the Buncombe County mandate. Modesto staff has done their due diligence in multiple training sessions of cleanliness, sanitation, and public facing before they were able to come back to work. I do hope you continue to wear your mask, stay safe!
Great experience, food and service. Would recommend.
This place was packed during Caronavirus week because it was fantastic. The van driver raved about it and so did the other patrons.
This a must visit in Ashville.
It’s just Salsas but
Great fresh food. Huge menu, Fantastic service. Definitely recommend.
My date and I ate at Modesto Trattoria before the SoCon basketball tournament on Monday. The wait staff and the chefs were extremely accommodating and timely so we could get to our game. Both dinners were delicious. The service was amazing, and the wine was fine. Thank you.
