Modesto’s Restaurant used to be at the ground floor where Jamie’s Oliver occupied. But since its move to level 3, I am sure many do not know of its existence since it isn’t at a very prominent location.
The space is in a irregular shape with mainly brown tone for almost everything. It a little dark even in the day, unless you are seated next to the glass panel.
12 appetizers listed on the menu to choose from. 12 is quite a lot of choices.
I am sure Calamari ($20) is one of the hot favourite with many. The calamari may not be as tender as some, slight chewy but still very much acceptable.
Bruschetta priced at $2 to $4 per piece with 3 different topping available. First with marinated diced fresh tomatoes ($2 per piece). The other 2 types of toppings both at $4 per piece; Norwegian smoked salmon, fresh arugula & mayonnaise and Fresh buffalo mozzarella cheese with marinated tomatoes. Fresh baguette and ingredients are the trick to this dish.
Alette Di Pollo ($16) consisting of 8 pieces of well marinated Fried Chicken Wings and Drumlets with a pretty spicy homemade chilli. The chilli reminds me of the chilli served with Chicken Rice. The chicken remained succulent. We enjoyed.
3 choices. I tried only Insalata Mista ($14) consisting of a mixed of fresh greens, carrots, capsicum, olives and fresh tomatoes served with balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil as dressing. Fresh greens that is the key.
Pizzeria (Traditional Wood-fired Pizza)
2 sizes of pizza (regular and mini) with 27 flavours of pizza.
Capricciosa Pizza ($26/21) is topped with Cooked pork ham, mushroom and artichoke. If this isn’t your choice, there are 26 others to choose from. Choice of pizza really depends mainly on one’s preferences for the ingredients.
Modesto’s Restaurant offers 14 selections of Modesto’s Special Pasta; quite a lot to choose from.
Tagliatelle Nere ($32) consists of fresh home-made black ink flat pasta with sauteed fresh prawns, scallops and diced tomatoes in a shrimp bisques sauce. If you like a rich seafood flavour, this is for you.
Paste Classiche (Classic Pasta)
More pasta selection from the Classic Pasta category, another 10 choices.
Linguine is my favourite pasta as such Linguine Vongole ($25) is a great choice. This is one of the better Vongole as I could savour the white wine fragrance. Absoluate a must order for all Vongole fan.
Carbonara ($25) is a rich and sinfully delish pasta; always comforting to turn to especially whenever I don’t know what to order. This is one of the very flavourful one where all the taste elements attain a great balance.
I find that the pasta at Modesto’s Restaurant fare much better than the pizza. I am not saying the pizza is no good but I thought it could be improved. I have been returing for mainly the pasta.

A pretty typical italian restaurant. They have a really wide range of pizza's and pastas, and I must admit that both are pretty darn good! Their other mains are quite a bit more expensive though, and honestly I cannot say that the quality and portion of the seabass we got really justified the price. But overall definitely worth checking out for their pasta's and pizza!
