We went here for my birthday dinner and had steak and chicken parmesan. The steak was perfectly cooked and the chicken was really tasty as well. I would definitely recommend. Nikko was so friendly and accomodating, he immediately felt like part of the family!

Blitza makes scrumptious pizzas and lovely dolmades. Theyre accommodating and offer a good wine list. Warm ambience. A favorite neighborhood place!
