The location wonderful and staff the best. The dishes, maybe not.  The Bolognese is nothing special as are the others.  Imagine an Italian restaurant that does not serve garlic bread when asked.  Probably won't be back with other Italian restaurants in Laguna.

The resort we stayed at gave us a list of restaurant deals that included 10% off at Modo Mio Rustic Italian Kitchen. A majority of the restaurants listed were in the $$$ range, but we wanted lunch in the $$ range. The service was friendly and attentive. Soon after we were seated in the lovely dining room complete with cloth napkins and white tablecloths, we were asked about beverages. The complimentary rosemary bread and sautéed mushrooms were really good. We ordered gnocchi, vegetable lasagna, butternut squash ravioli, smoked salmon pappadelle, tiramisu, a glass of the house red, iced tea and diet Coke. The food was delicious and well-prepared. The pappadelle noodles were really good. The ravioli was the second best dish. Butternut squash is naturally sweet, but the dish was well balanced. The gnocchi was quite a heavy dish for lunch, but the little potato dumplings were flavorful and fluffy. The vegetable lasagna had a lot of vegetables in it! I think of Italian food as something I could make at home inexpensively (and have it turn out okay). Or Italian restaurant food as being over priced meat, noodles and sauce that may or may not turn better than home cooked. Modo Mio is one of those places that may change your mind. There are many items priced $10-15, but it's not just the price, it's the quality. The food is actually pretty good! Those Yelp stars are well-deserved. We would come back as the food is really good and the menu is reasonably priced. Yum! Also, the service is pretty great as well. The staff really seem to care about the overall experience and want the guests to enjoy the meal. Kudos to them! Thanks for a great lunch!
