We stopped in here Friday night around 21:30 or so - the restaurant has a wonderful intimate atmosphere with just the right amount of lighting to set a relaxing mood. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful, but the wait time was a bit long. There were about three other tables of people in there, and meals were prepared... More

No stress is the motto of the restaurant. So that means that it will take time for food to arrive which gives you time to enjoy your company and that food is being made especially for you fresh... but if you don't like it, it will be an annoying issue. Food is great! Menu quite simple which I respect and... More

I have been there a few times in the past as the pasta is very good. I have to say that this time i was heavily disappointed by the service. We were waiting to be seated @ 22:30 but this was expected as the have already told us on the phone. We sat at the table at about 22:45...and the... More

I visited with a friend for late lunch on Sunday. It's a nice place - nothing fancy. Simple and clean. The service is a bit slow due to the kitchen to my understanding. It took sometime to bring us the bread/olives/wine and then the food. Other than that it's ok. Kind, smiling and helpful. The bruschetta didn't drive me crazy... More

My wife and I had two excellent meals at this small, quaint Italian restaurant. It is off the beaten path on a side street not far from the Acropoli Metro station. It is well worth seeking it out. On our first visit the server warned us it would a little longer than usual for our meals to arrive because each... More

After a couple of weeks traveling in Turkey and Greece, we were craving something different than the typical tourist fare...and searched for Italian food. We had also just been in Rome, so we imagined it would be hard to find anything that could live up to what we had just experienced. That said, we found AO&P on Tripadvisor and were... More

The ambiance is nice, and our waitress made great suggestions. However, only certain pastas here are made in house, and you can taste the difference! My brother got the pappardelle and porcini mushroom, which was excellent and the best dish we ordered. The bruschetta and special eggplant appetizer was excellent. The other pastas all had linguine, which was not handmade;... More

We stopped in here our first night in Athens, pretty late off the plane, having avoided what we came to call 'the gauntlet' more mainstream tourist type restaurants with waiters attempting to pull you in off the street. We walked past here, the kitchen door was open and the food smelled devine. On walking in we were delighted to find... More

The food is ok! They have a major problem at their kitchen. It's is not acceptable in half -full restaurant to serve the main course after 1 hour and 30 minutes!! If you are hungry don't even think of coming here!!

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighbourhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
