Hard to find, and when you're on foot, its a little hard to get to, but the people were really nice, and the food was amazing!

Oh my oh my. I've never ever in my entire life tasted something so bad. I have no idea why this place is so popular at tripadvisor. Worst kebab I've ever tasted. Please take my tip and avoid this place.

This is the best pita we had so far. It's very tasty and could taste the freshness of the ingredients. I will love to visit again.

First, it was wrapped in a perfect crispy pita, rather than the mediocre wrap found so often in the center. The... More

Everything is homemade from the bread to the hummus, babaganush, falafels and the gyros of meat which he marinades on the premises. There is always a convivial atmosphere as the owner is very friendly and funny. Order "uno fatto bene" or "garantito" and he... More
