Based on an authentic approach to Italian food and using only the highest quality ingredients, Chef Omar Scarabello and his partner Diego Montresor offer patrons deliciously simple yet luxurious Italian fare.
Moda’ delights diners with a creative twist on simple, original Italian dishes. Enjoy homemade pastas with a selection of heavenly sauces or choose from wood-fired thin crust pizzas with a perfect balance of toppings.
Our pizza bases are exquisitely light due to the quality of the flour and the two day rising process we use to create the dough. Traditional wood -fired bases are complimented with delicious toppings and finished off with top-quality cheeses.
