Extremely kind staff! Good food, both greek and italian (mainly yummy pizzas). I had an excellent peculiar and rare genuine cooked in oven goat-and-sheep cretan cheese, as a starter (unfortunately, I forgot its name...!), and a tasty crunchy pizza, as a main course. Very good!

It has been a surprise ! It was almost the only one with some people inside and we found a real treasure. The pizza is quite good (we are Italian) and the main course I tried was also good. The atmosphere is peculiar, you have...More

A very cosy place, run by a cute family, offering super tasty, fresh food and pizza from the oven. The food is freshly made right in front of you, the service and the kids give you the feeling of being an old friend. After the...More
