A Very Welcoming Traverna

This is a family run restaurant and you get a welcoming feeling as soon as you enter. If you are sitting any where near the kitchen you will witness the delightful interaction of the family members preparing and serving the very tasty Greek cuisine.

Went to this place hoping to find good greek food. Hmmm. I am not saying the food was bad by any means , just nothing that special. An upside is they have an outdoor patio nestled amongst the trees and flowers where you can people watch while waiting for your food to arrive. The service was ok and bad at... More

The food was excellent, the service very good, and the entertainment – the owner/manager's spontaneously performing on the mandolin -- was unexpected and a wonderful treat.

My wife and were in the neighborhood, so to speak, and decided to stop for dinner. We used to frequent the establishment years ago when it had another name (I think) and was certainly under different management. We found the food delightful and the service excellent; the other customers around us seem to enjoy the experience as well. One disappointment... More

I had the roast lamb and it was very tasty and tender along with the vegetable trimmings. I would definitely recommend it for Greek food although I found the side order of Greek salad a little uninteresting.

We arrived with no reservation and could not have been made more welcome and a table was ready in just a few minutes. The restaurant was very busy on a Monday evening. The service was prompt and the waiting staff delightful. The menu is classic Greek and really delicious. Don't be tempted to order too much because portions are large... More

Reviews are really positive. Having just finished a meal - we would agree! The pork ribs were very good. The soup, lemon potatoes.....everything was great. 😊

Amazing food and great staff. We showed up around 7pm with no reservations and they were very accommodating. They kept us outside under the block heaters with blankets, where we ordered our appetizers and wine while we waited for a table inside. The owner kept checking on us to make sure we were okay, and gave us a list of... More

As someone not very familiar with Greek cuisine, I thought Ithaka's chef did a great job combining exotic and comfortable flavors. We ordered the Greek platter, houmos and pita, and the tiramisu, which was enough to feed four hungry tourists. This restaurant exuded hospitality: the setting was bright and friendly, our waiter was attentive, and one of the owners stopped... More
