Good location, nice food

This Italian restaurant is not too far from the Acropolis. We liked the main course and the dessert that we had ordered; would recommend.

The location is excellent, near to Acropolis in an old neighborhoud, resident in a very beautiful old building, La Rocca is a true gem if you seek italian cuisine in Athens. The food was very good almost for all of us and the sweets after were a true experience (tiramisu and pannacota). Adequate wine list and lot of Italian spirits.... More

The restaurant is in a lovely spot, very close to the Acropolis. Nevertheless, the food is not that good and the wine list should be bigger. When I went to that restaurant there was only one waiter and at some points he wasn't enough. I also found it rather expensive, the prices could be better since the service is not... More

Our most memorable and pleasant evening in Athens was certainly our dinner at La Rocca Ristorante Italiano in the shadow of the Acropolis on Angelikara 1 & Ratzieri. We had a romantic evening at an outdoor table, elevated above the streets with cool evening breezes chasing the heat of the summer sun away. The service was courteous and non-rushed which... More

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighborhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centerpiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
