The place with a very large terrace is a wonderful ambiance with the proper light and great service. The pizza is good, however, they do not know how to make good old fashions.

Good food at reasonable prices to fit anyone's quirks. The Greek Salad was fresh and ample and the Yuvetsi was special and different. They had the usual souvlaki and moussaka, which looked spectacular. The service was excellent.

The food is all very tasty - I've enjoyed the lamb dishes, as well as fish entrees, the mediterranean and vegetarian meals (tends to be quite rich). The warm pita brought at the beginning of meals is thick and deliciously fresh. Good wine list. The...More
