Dedicated to pasta this restaurant is fully focused to present pasta plates that challenge your previous experiences and make you come over again and again. Some tasteful salads complete this very simple but deep Italian cuisine matrix.

cover almost every inch of wall space. Some of the
best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as
