Modesto's Trattoria Sunday Lunch

We had a wonderful meal at Modesto's on Sunday. The service was superb considering they only had one server seating, taking orders, filling drinks, working inside & out, delivering food and ringing people out.
We shared the Caprese salad to begin with. They say they make their own mozzerela - very flavorful. It was a very good salad. My daughter had the chicken parmagian. It was very good with a large portion of chicken; however it had a bite to it that the 11 year old said was a little too hot. I enjoyed the Fennel Rubbed Pork dish which was heavenly. I don't think I have ever had a wood grilled pork pasta dish. The sauce it was cooked with could be used as a heavy winter soup base. Very filling. My husband ordered a steak sandwich with french onion soup. He never received his salad.
The waiter in frustation finally quit letting people seat themselves until he could catch up. That was very wise.
The other good thing about this restaurant was the cost. The salad was $7 and the other entrees were $8 each. Very cost concious for lunch.
I would stop by here again and see if they have adequate wait staff. If so, I would definately dine here.
