Very nice Italian restaurant serving freshly cooked Italian dishes. Service very good and helpful explaining the different dishes. The Tiramisu was excellent especially for somebody who doesn't normally like it. Definitely worth a try.

You can't better this restaurant. On the outskirts of Plaka so quiet, gentle surroundings. Friendly attentive service and in depth knowledge of the menu if you want help choosing from the always different specials or the delicious 'normal' menu. A very good selection of wines and of course Peroni or now the locally brewed Xarma. Took friends there for their... More

Visited twice with my parents and toddler on our 10 day holiday to Plaka and lovely both times. The menu had pasta, salad type dishes but then they have a specials menu which was different each time we visited all dishes chosen were high quality and the wines were just wonderful. The staff were all lovely and we had a... More

We had seen this place advertised in the area and decided to call in after a long days travelling. What a great find. The staff were lovely and very welcoming. The food was very good and it was good to try Italian food adjusted for Cretan tastes rather than English taste. Starters are generous, consider sharing. I had a pasta... More

One of the best Italian restaurants I've ever been to, tucked away in an unprepossessing row of shops in the village of Plaka. Impeccable friendly service and amazing food, well worth a few euro more than other local restaurants. Antipasto was superb, foccaccia and roast vegetable amuse-bouche perfect. Meat dishes similarly impressive, good value if small wine list and complimentary... More

This place was recommended to us by the owner of the villa we're currently staying in. So we visited last night. Suffice to say we will be returning this Friday if they have a table. The greeting was very friendly and they knew who we were before I could give our name. We ordered the 6 meat platter for two... More

We discovered this restaurant towards the end of our wonderful holiday in Plaka. This place was a real surprise as it hadn't been included on the various lists of recommended places to eat we'd been supplied with, but hopefully this and the other splendid reviews here will change that in the future. The food, service and ambience were all faultless;... More

Description
"Una faccia una razza" risto-bar is a small corner of Italy in Crete. It is run by a young Italian couple, Giulia and Matteo, who will make sure you have enjoyable moments in a cosy and friendly atmosphere, savouring authentic Italian dishes or simply sipping a good glass of Italian wine.

The speciality is fresh home-made pasta, made according to traditional Italian recipes and served with wholesome sauces, which are made daily. On the " Specials " board, which changes everyday, you can choose among delicious pasta dishes, Italian style meat dishes, risottos and mouth-watering home-made desserts.

All dishes are prepared and cooked upon order, using high-quality Italian products, therefore maintaining the real Italian cooking style. A perfect change from Greek food!
