This is by far the best Mediterranean salad I've ever had. Generous portions of lettuce cucumbers Kalamata olives and a surprise at the bottom of the bowl with Tzatziki and hummus. This is a $10 salad in worth every penny.

Food is always good if not standard fare. Pretty noisy since it's a little cramped and wide open. Service is good and sauces are clearly homemade.Salads are crisp. Not many Italian restaurants to choose from in the Elgin area. This is the best of them.
