Our first visit to this family owned neighborhood Greek restaurant was beyond our expectations. The food was well prepared and very tasty. A musician played guitar music throughout the evening. the atmosphere and service were great. Portions generous. We look forward to a return visit.

Came here on a THU night. Inside was not crowded but the patio was packed. Perfect night to sit outside. Service was excellent, food was delicious and there was a musician playing relaxing music to provide some atmosphere. Best grape leaves.
