We were amazed at the sophistication and true love of local ingredients, slow cooked but ready to eat despite our early arrival, this beats any food we have had in Greece or most any city. We live in California and appreciate healthy delicious and fresh food . Vineria was all that and healthy too. Associated with a nearby wine store... More

If your coming here for a typical risotto or beer battered chicken you'll be disappointed. They have no English menu so our waiter has to patiently translate and we settled on chicken cooked in beer and a rice and pork dish. I have never tasted such a strange combination of flavors but as a whole it was wonderful. Chicken with... More

Nobody proposed this place and we found it out ourselves. We liked it so much that we returned the next night again. Very cozy and sweet, nice local wines (I did not try the international wines, however the restaurant is being operated by a very friendly lady, who owns a very nice wine cellar, so I guess they would be...

Our last Visit to Vineria 36 was very disappointing, we've been there the year before as well and we had very good memories from the place but this year's visit disappointed us. The risotto was NOT a risotto it was more like pre-cooked fried rise to me than a risotto, the pasta aglio olio was neither aglio nor olio it... More

Pleasant atmosphere, very nice salads, disappointing fresh pasta, average taste of red sauce beef and definitely not the wine list you should expect from a place called vineria. I can excuse anything in the first try but not the amateur service.

You expect a lot more from what you hear it has to offer. And it is disappointing.slow service, poor selection of wine and you get the idea that the food is not freshly cooked.Good intentions-bad result!

I discavered it as I was walking in the little street near Daliani street. When I saw it I loved the nice atmosphere so I decided to try it. Food was good, especially the "fresh" spaghetti, wine was exellent, and service quite ok. I recommend it if you want a quite dinner with good wine.

Appalling service...Waitress extremely rude, had to move out the way whilst food was being placed on our table to avoid being elbowed in the eye. Menu boasted hand made fresh pasta....it arrived very thick and gloopy, the tomato sauce very bland and flavourless. Atmosphere very pretentious and unwelcoming. Worst food and service I have ever experienced in Greece. Big disappointment.

After the good reviews our visit was not what we expected. It wasn't particularly busy but when we said we only wanted a wine the waitress asked us to move to another table, she then asked us if we wanted red or white and plonked two glasses down in front of us, no suggestion of the wine list we were...
