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 Pacific Palisades, 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.

The restaurant decor is reflective of the Italian contryside, with oak sideboards, colorful Italian pottery on display, a hand-painted mural on one wall (depicting an Italian street scene), yellow ochre sponge-painted walls, and tiled floors. Tables are dressed in crisp white cloths with flickering candles and gleaming flatware. The result is a warm and inviting atmosphere that inspires enjoyable dining.

The Newport location is no less impressive. The restaurant opened in February, 2005 and has an indoor waterfall, and beautiful views of the Newport coastline.

Dedicated customers and first-time visitors revel in homemade pastas, including ravioli (stuffed with either duck, seafood, chicken, or ricotta and spinach); vegetable lasagna (a special so light it almost floats), spaghetti topped with fresh shrimp, mussels, clams, and calamari in a light tomato sauce, and tagliatelle with a rich meat sauce. The homemade gnocchi are perennial favorites, topped with tomato pesto sauce with just a touch of cream.

Bertolino and company welcome you to Modo Mio Cucina Rustica.
