On the day I went to this restaurant with two friends, there was a large party already seated. We ordered and had to wait awhile to get our food because the party had ordered before us. The nice waitress came over to apologize for the wait and returned just before our food was ready to let us know it would be arriving soon. Everything was delicious and worth the wait! The food was authentic Greek food made with fresh ingredients. All three of us really enjoyed our food. We were given a free rice pudding dessert because of having to wait for our food. It was also very good. We highly recommend eating at It's Greek to Me!

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!
