The food and the ambiance of the restaurant were first rate. I ordered a seafood pasta which I feel requires a high level of skill. My wife had the gnocchi in a tomato basil sauce and we were both highly pleased. The cost was a bit on the up side but the quality was there and it was definitely worth... More

A friend introduced me to this restaurant about 5 years ago and I've been a regular ever since. The quality is stably impeccable, as well as the prices - a bit on the up side. Service is friendly and quick, without being intrusive. Nice selection of wines and daily plates according to seasonality of fresh fish mainly. Fresh pasta is... More

Been a return client for years. Literally all my first dates the last 10 years (not just few) I brought them here because the environment is very civilized allowing conversation, the mood is quite cozy but the FOOD is excellent really fantastic fresh and flavorful Italian/Greek cuisine. The service is also excellent, warm and professional. Recommended all the way.

Propper italian food. Been there a few times. But even though the food tastes good, the servise is sometimes slow. Also once i had the spaggeti with sea orchid, and found numerous crushed parts of the shell that could easily damage my throat. When i asked for another plate it came almost an hour later, after my friends had finished... More

Worst Italian restaurant I've visited ever before. Nothing in common. Dirty restroom without lock. And worst service ever.

Ina nutshell, whether you are a local or not, the service and the food quality is impeccable. Manages to reconcile the best pizza in town, always fresh fish (for the simple reason that if it isn't fresh, there isn't any!) and always good grilled meat where rare means rare!

Staying in Kolonaki / Lykavittos

Neighbourhood Profile
Kolonaki / Lykavittos
By far the ritziest neighbourhood in town, Kolonaki is home to most of the chic boutiques and designer label stores. Here, the wealthy say no to austerity by dressing in their finest and spending hours in the trendy cafés around Kolonaki Square, sipping the most expensive coffee in Europe. The area also contains a couple of notable museums and cultural institutions, which add to the air of nobility. The leafy upper reaches of Kolonaki transition into Lykavittos Hill, the highest point in central Athens. Climb the paths through its wooded slopes to the tiny chapel at the top, from where you are rewarded with stunning views across the Acropolis to the sea and even the mountains of the Peloponnese on a clear day. The wooden amphitheater up here hosts regular concerts during the summer.
