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

Delicious lunch with bigger portions than expected. Very reasonable priced. Only thing is the restaurant is only open from 13.00-18.00 and when we arrived at 13.15pm we still had to wait 15 mins as she was not ready to serve. Worth the wait though.

We went there during our first night in Iraklion and the food was actually not that special. The appetizers were great (we had the variety of bruschettas) but the main course was actually very hard to eat. My husband and I ordered pastas and it was so dry, very little salt and just outright bad! Not sure if it was... More

Cosy atmosphere, friendly owners, used by locals and tourists. We ate at this restaurant a couple of times. Menu is limited but food excellent especially the bruschetta. Wine is supberb and realistically priced.

Limited menu, which appears to rotate regularly. We were lucky to get a table without a reservation -- I would recommend calling ahead if you can because there are only a handful of tables in the place. An older Greek man was serving us, and his Italian wife was in the kitchen doing the cooking, coming out to say a... More

We had the bruschetta that the owner recommended and we were certainly happy we did. It was amazing. The meal was delicious too. A welcomed change of pace after a week of eating Greek food.

This is some of the best pasta and bruschetti I've had anywhere. Every bite was delicious. We didn't order wine because we had already been drinking that night, but I wish we had because the list was comprised of carefully chosen Italian imports. It is a tiny restaurant--maybe 6-8 tables. The couple who owns it do everything themselves. It is... More

This restaurant is tiny beyond belief. The meals were tasty but the portions were small by Greek standards. Generally the entrees were pastas containing very little meat. However, the owners try very hard to please.
