Stopped on business trip. Unassuming looking but great casual place. The portions are huge and everything we tried from the Clam chowder to the Greek + specialties were excellent. There's nothing wrong with paper napkins and placemats when the food and service is this great. You are in New England "grinder" territory but they have some I haven't seen before,... More

I lived in New London 25 years ago and this was always one of my favorite places for pizza & grinders. When I returned recently for a visit to the area and saw this place was still open I didn't waste any time getting here for lunch. Since this is a family owned restaurant, they take pride in the quality... More

If you like unpretentious diners, joints, and pizzerias, you will want to give this place a try. Loads of character at this unassuming looking Greek family-run pizzeria. Makes you want to take a vow never to visit a chain restaurant again. Sit at a window booth and get the best of both views: watch the world go by outside and... More

Since I work at the hospital the location is convenient to swing by for take out or for dining in with my family. Grinders are yummy and their entrees are large and tasty. My daughter loves their bacon pizza. All in all, it's a pretty good family pizza place.

I have been going here since I was little and there's nothing I would change! Fantastic foods and service. I don't live here anymore but I make sure to make a trip when I'm in town. I love the Special Pizza :-)

I am very picky and spoiled when it comes for food. But I don't look for fancy, I look for made - at -home taste. This is great place to go, my favorite is Gyro with lamb, my DH likes buffalo chicken and grilled chicken salad. The best thing - you always will feel welcome. It's only place I go... More

The pork grinder was very fragrent, and my husband said it was excellent; large chunks of fried marinated pork. He had 1/2 of it for lunch the next day. The... More

This is a neighborhood pizza place, Greek style. The pan-fried crust etc which I do not like as a style at all. But, the pizza here is not the star on the menu. It's really the seafood. Amzing portions at really good prices. I literally cannot believe what I am getting for my money. Fresh, fresh, fresh, fresh local seafod.... More
