2625 Coffee Rd, Modesto

“Decided to try out a different type of Italian restaurant and came here..My appetizer was actually the best (Portobello Mushroom with the Pesto sauce)The bread comes with this spicy type of butter that I've never had and was really good.Overall the food was good but not amazing.In regards to the time, it was actually slow (only 2 parties already served at the time) and the food still took about 25 minutes to come out; not necessarily a negative but just wanted to note that.Service was good and friendly. It's a nice little spot if you want to try a different Italian place.”

“My husband and I went for a day before v-day dinner. The hostess put us in a booth away from people. Very intimate for us. We don't get a quiet time with a 1 year old, lol. The service was ok. Our waitress was spent more time with a customer at the bar (diner area) . The customer was a bit loud, while drinking. Other than that food was amazing we will be back again soon with our family and friends. Thank you for your hospitality.”

Skewers Kabob House 821 L St, Modesto Mediterranean • $$
821 L St, Modesto

“This restaurant is very nice inside and is very large. It looks like a great place to have a party or gathering. We sat in the main dining area, I love that the booths had curtains, so that you couldn't see the people in the booth behind or in front of you. It's a nice romantic spot. They have a small kids menu for the little ones, and they had VEGAN options! They had vegan Basmatti rice as an option and plenty of veggie entrees. I got a veggie skewer with vegan basmatti rice and a pomegranate sparkling drink. The rice could have been flavored a bit more, but I understand creating vegan dishes at a non vegan restaurant can be challenging and I am just grateful for the option. My friend had the lamb, and it looked tender. They said it was very good with the dill rice. We got jalapeño hummus with warm flat bread, it was so good! The service was good, our server was very nice.”

Beer tenders and cooks had this down during their house packed trivia night on Thursday although I did go 30 minutes before it started. Much love to the FoodFixFam.”
