    On 13June09 is Weijie birthday, He treat us dinner at Modesto's at Vivo City is our first time eat at there.

    We all been order different type of main course to share among ourself as what we know the partion of the foods is very big. :)

    Weijie and me shared Seafoods Linguine the partion is very big for the both of us. We eat till full already still have half portion left. We are sad that we eat half way, I saw somethings in the Linguine and asked the manger what things is this in the foods then the manager was very polite and said is a shell that was not fresh and he change a new Seafoods Linguine for us. He was so goods and he also free a completery cake for us. We are surprise that he already change a new set for us yet still give us completery cake. Really Thank you for him. :)

    We also order a plate of soup and share together and the soup cost us about $16 per plate.We enjoy and YUMMY too..:)

    Guys and Girls, if you all go Modesto's eat must try the "Salmon Fish" also the fish is really fresh and hard to express myself here. 1 words is "BEST".

    Overall, the foods is nice and we will go back again. :)

      Ran some errands at Vivo City with my gf and settled for dinner at Modestos, which happened to be one of the few outlets not packing in the crowd at dinner time.

      Rather obscurely located at a corner of Vivo City (which might, to a certain degree, explain its lack of patrons), Modesto's boasts a nice waterfront view through its floor to ceiling windows (at its Vivo City outlet only) and a cosy brick laid interior that gives it a much welcomed casual intonation.

      Complimentary Bread - I didn't hope for much when I set my eyes on the bread and sure enough, it wasn't much. The bread was a little too dry, probably from being left in the open for too long. Quantity wise was also rather pathetic.

      Fritto Misto Di Modesto - A relatively large platter of deep fried soft shell crab, squid, prawns and silver breams which looked very appetizing the minute I set my eyes on it. However it didn't quite meet expectations. The deep fried soft shell crab, though crispy and fragrant, was a tad too salty for my liking while the squids were rather soft and limp, not chewy, giving the impression of being overcooked. The silver breams and prawns were close to tasteless as well - no sweetness from either seafood nor any taste from the light but bland batter. Alright I'm just being picky and it is still a decent dish. Bang for the buck wise, its still an open verdict.

      Pizza Quattro Stagioni - Honestly, this is the first time I'm having such a pizza - one which is divided into 4 different sections, each with a different topping. One part olive, one part seafood, one part ham and one part mushrooms. Presents a rather challenging task if you ask me, as different ingredients require different amounts of cooking time. The chef must have known his stuff as the pizza turned out fairly good. Using tomato sauce as the base, it didn't come across as too overwhelming and the crust was reasonably thin and full of bite, but just a little burnt around the edges. Ingredients were generous and cooked just right, complementing the pizza very well. I must say that this is one of the better pizzas that I've tried. Give me this over Pizza Hut or Canadian Pizza anyday.

      Rigatoni All' Amatriciana - I've never been a fan of tomato based pastas simply because I prefer its cream base relative and that most of the pastas I've eaten which utilizes such a base tend to have this overwhelming tomato taste. Modesto's rendition of the Rigatoni, which is a tomato based pasta, didn't have this problem though. The tomato sauce was mild, in fact a little too mild to fall short of tasty and came with bits of pork bacon and onions, which did serve to enhance the overall flavour (luckily). The large tube pasta was a little undercooked though and I seriously think that this dish could do with more ingredients for its price.

      Tiramisu Modesto's - I've been on a Tiramisu roll these few days and so this came as a natural extension to my meal, especially when it came highly recommended. Comparing this to the one I had at Romano Ristorante, this one was actually much finer and definitely more presentable. Though it came across as light and fluffy, the sponge to cream ratio was rather skewed, with the latter being the predominant party. Thus I couldn't quite taste the texture of the cake, which is quite sad really.

      After a 30% discount, the bill worked out to be about $60 for 2 pax ($87 before discount), which still falls within my range of reasonable pricing, but do away with the discount and I might have to think really hard before coming back. Service is good though, but I don't really fancy paying so much for a casual dinner.

           Modesto   Modesto

        Looking for food around VivoCity doesn't seem to be a difficult task. However, deciding what to eat can be quite a challenge! With so many choices to choose from, I got lost a couple of time. But yesterday was suprisingly easy for us. We saw a big board outside UOB promoting a One-for-one promotion at Modesto's and that's what we had for lunch.

        We expected crowd at that place but to our surprise, the lunch crowd seemed to have missed this resturant. Hidden at a corner of Vivocity, its not one that many would chance upon while window shopping.

        It was pizza and pasta for us girls. We ordered a regular Pizza Al Funghi (cos we thought the Mini would be terribly small) and a Spaghetti Alle Vongole.

        Even though there wasn't much tables at that time, the order took quite awhile to come. I can understand why pizza takes longer time to come, but then it came before the Spaghetti! It was huge! (For the 2 of us.) We had 4 big slices of it and we didn't feel bloated cos the pizza was thin on the crust and the mushrooms on it was yummy!

        The Spaghetti finally arrived while we were at our last slice of pizza. (That's abit too long for them to cook the pasta.) The look of it didn't quite attract us. And the taste was... not-so-bad. Probably cause of the pizza that was very delicious.

        I would probably give the pasta a miss and just go for their pizzas. There're many other pizzas to choose from! Better go try it soon if you're a UOB cardmember! From Mon-Thur only.
