Modesto's Italian

Promptly ushered to our reserved table, chairs pull out; laying of napkins on our laps once we are seated. Simple orders for their Mad Monday Promotion ($9.95++ for selected Classic Pasta & Mini Pizza) were taken attentively and warm water with Lemon slice served swiftly.

A waitress etiquette no lacking in Modesto's Restaurant Vivo.

Complimentary warmly toasted Focaccia bread with dipping Olive Oil & Vinegar for my hunger pangs. Could i ask for a refill?

Wood-Fired Pizza - Mini Mediterranea ($16.50++)

Mediterranea styled in Tomato, Cheese, Black Kalamata, Olives, Garlic and Oregano. A Wood-Fired tasting Pizza no doubt! A Mini Pizza that's by no means mini; it's at least a 10 inches.

I do love its Pizza that's an in-between of paper-thin crust from Waraku and customary thick crust from Pizza Hut.

Classic Pasta - Carbonara ($20++)

Ever a Classic, the Carbonara Spaghetti with Pork Bacon, Egg Yolk and Parmesan Cheese in Cream sauce. Pity about not seeing the "yellow sun rise" here; the Egg Yolk :(

Pasta de Waraku could have done the Carbonara as good if not better, but at a smaller price tag.
