Literally the best Italian you can find in Crete!!!! I love everything about it, the food is delicious, and 100% authentic Italian, the wines too. Stefi the owner and chef, is the soul of this place, you will love her as much you will love the food. The atmosphere is very warm, it's a tiny place with nice music, nice... More

Very pleasant, tiny restaurant, away from main tourist streets, but easy to find. Bruschetta was brilliant, salad and pasta dishes very good. Everything fresh. Too full up to attempt desserts, which looked very tempting. Steffi and her husband very welcoming. Highly recommended as a change from regular Greek menu. Will return. Note opening hours currently 1200 to 1800, but this... More

Quiet and nice little place to enjoy authentic Italien food. Bruscetta, salad, pasta.... delicious! After all we had Tiramisu and pána cotta, and instead of raki we got limoncello! Thank you for a wonderful afternoon! Zuzana & Martin

Simple rustic bruschetta, salad and pasta all served with very generous toppings of charcuterie and freshly made to order by the charming lady of the house, together with a wonderful Montepulciano red wine, made for a memorable yummy lunch, and a change from the many Greek meals of our travels. Currently only open for lunch as it is a one... More

Original Italian taste, as the chef is Italian. The menu is limited, with bruschetas, salads and 3 dishes of pasta that change every day. There is also a small selection of Italian wines. Always fresh and quality ingredients. Always book before, especially in summer,as there are limited tables.

Italian cuisine...? It doesn't mean that if you cook spaghetti you are an Italian ristorante. Overrated dishes, very small place but I will not state that as a negative , until it's overcrowded in order to get few more clients.... Dissapointment. I really wonder with the comments I read... I guess bad taste is the trademark of this city...

Stefi, the owner, runs a very original Italian restaurant in Iraklio (Heraklio), Crete. Very small and cosy place at the very down town of the city, with not more than 2-3 main choices every day, mostly pasta, together with salads and bruschettas and Italian wine, but is all what you need! All tables are inside but see-through with a view... More

We enjoyed our supper in this tiny restaurant not far from our hotel (the Lato Boutique). After two weeks of traditional Greek cuisine, we were ready for a change, and had no problem with the limited menu (a variety of bruschette and a choice of three pasta dishes). The owners are a husband and wife team (the wife, from the... More
