We love Greek food and after spending almost a month in Greece, we know when we are getting the real thing. We've visited several Tucson venues and without a doubt, this is the best we have found in Pima County. We've been coming for several years.The menu features all the standard menu items with a few extras and all are very well prepared and tasty. The service is good and the atmosphere pleasant, quiet and conducive to conversation.

We are so happy to see It's Greek to Me is open again! Dinner tonight was lamb chops and octopus...excellent. Every thing is made from scratch and absolutely delicious. Service thoughtful and gracious.

We would give it a 4+.

The food, service is just awesome. Also awesome vegan food. We have been going here for seven years and the food, service and convenience to our home is so awesome. We will continue to go there and also always recommend it to our friends.

Thanks again, Ed and Judy

After closing for a couple months this summer, we knew the restaurant was going to reopen again this last week. But when we could no longer find their old website or Facebook page, we began to wonder what was going on. So we called and found out that they had new owners - a couple who had worked there many years ago when George was still the owner.

So with a bit if apprehension, we figured we would give it a try. When we showed up, albeit pretty early, on a Saturday night and no one else was there, we wondered if we had made the right decision. But we talked to the new chef/owner, Dave, and his wife, who was our server, for a while and figured we'd give it a try.

They brought out some complimentary olives and cheese while we were deciding on what to order and then also let us taste a couple different wines so we could decide on which one we wanted to order.

We figured the best way to test out the new owners was to order a couple of our favorites so I ordered the salmon and my wife ordered the Shrimp Kastella. The new owners have modified these items to some degree - for instance the shrimp came on a bed of rice instead of being served over pasta and the salmon was served over rice instead of over garlic mashed potatoes. But when we mentioned that, our server told us they would be happy to fix those dishes the "old" way if we wanted.

My Greek salad was great - the greens were very fresh and the dressing was perfect.The salmon was cooked perfectly and came with some really tasty rice and some perfectly grilled vegetables that were also very well seasoned. My wife's shrimp was also cooked perfectly and very tasty.

By the time we were done eating the place began to fill up and really the only negative thing I can say at all is that it took a while for them to process our credit card because the server got so busy. But that was such a minor issue.

We'll definitely be back!

We sat down right away no wait. Sunday evening not to busy. When ordering remember there will be some coming home with you. I order the meat sampler and it was fantastic. It comes with your choose of salad or soup. I got a greek salad and it was a good start to a great meal. You get a sampling of pork, chicken, and lamb. Tasty oh so tasty. Along with the meat you get to choose from 2 sides out of six. I went the route of greek potatoes and green beans. Both items were very well seasoned and prepared properly. Since this was a greek restaurant I made it point to save room for baklava. Just like it suppose to be out of this world
Coffee is a big point with me no matter what meal i am having breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The coffee was very enjoyable. So like the pervious rating 5 spots if there were 10 it would have gotten 10. The only downfall and this is just a slight knock service was a little slow. I will be returning time after time.
