Concetta in Modesto

This place sells pizza by the slice downtown Mon-Fri. They now serve a 3 course fixed price menu Thur-Sat evening with an optional wine pairing. The main part runs about $30-34 at present and varies each week. A couple weeks ago, we went for our first visit for the evening event. The first course was a salad with mixed greens, fennel, sausage and large chunks of good bread. It was a unique salad in my experience and very good. The main course options were a spicy seafood stew which had a lot of shellfish and other goodies but most of us opted for the oxtails with polenta to match the Stags Leap 97 Fay cabernet. The oxtail was very well prepared with a rich, beefy taste and went well with the wine. Dessert tasted good at the time but my wife and I cannot remember what it was. Corkage is reasonable and service superb. We will definitely go again.
