Chef Alfredo Modica is originally from Sicily, where, starting at an early age, he learned traditional Italian cooking from his grandmother. The menu he offers reflects his continuation of those traditions and emphasizes the authentic Mediterranean favorites, including garden vegetables, imported cheeses and meats, fresh seafood, delicious pastas and delicately made desserts. Chef Alfredo Modica also has wide experience in fine dining, most recently as chef on the Cruise Line for 20 years.
Piccolo Mondo offers an enchanting atmosphere that allows you and your guests to immerse yourselves in a true Italian landscape. Leave everyday life behind and escape into an unforgettable dining experience.
Some think of it as their own well-kept secret – their own authentic Italian restaurant – right in the heart of downtown St. George. Dining adventurers who are not satisfied with the Americanized version of Italian fare and are willing to seek out the best Italian food in town will be happily surprised by Piccolo Mondo Italiano Ristorante.
