Modo Mio by Susan Goldstein
Healthy dining in O.C. "My Way"
With an indoor waterfall and enchanting views of the Newport coastline, the ambiance at Modo Mio Cucina Rustica is relaxing and inviting. Known for its authentic Northern Italian cuisine, the restaurant is dedicated to excellent food that is both light and flavorful.
Modo Mio means, "My Way," and the menu offers many inventive specials and homemade favorites by its talented chef. "Healthy Dining" selections feature Tagliatelle Verdi Con Pollo, Cioppino Adriatico, and others (please see below). Wine or champagne can be enjoyed from a list of choices from Italy and California. Dessert includes sorbetto, tiramisu and other Italian favorites. For the finishing touch, try a freshly brewed cappuccino or espresso.
Aiming to be your home away from home, Modo Mio has been delighting locals and first-time visitors to Newport Coast since 2005. Another location has been serving Pacific Palisades since 1996.
