Had a delightful, sun-splashed lunch at Ithaki today. Warm welcome, open and bright room with many cozy tables. Andrew was an informative and gracious server, and we loved the warm bread and spicy oil/tapenade. Appetizers were a moist, beautifully crusted falafel with fresh local peppers and onions, and tasty dolmades; my friend has a zesty chicken gyro and I had... More

This is my favorite restaurant on the North Shore of Boston. Although it offers more than just Greek cuisine, it specializes in dishes from that area and they are outstanding. The chef uses fresh local ingredients, the service is very good, and the atmosphere is very pleasant. I recommend this to anyone looking for authentic Mediterranean food or to celebrate... More

Ithaki is hands down the best restaurant in Ipswich. It is where we go for special dinners and also where we go to have a drink and a light meal or snack in the bar. The meal changes regularly and seasonally and Petros is always coming up with innovative bites. It is a Greek restaurant, and you will find standard... More

This was our second visit to the restaurant in the last year. We do not live in the area but were spending a long weekend in Ipswich. The food is good but we prefer classic Greek food instead of the twist on the Greek menu the restaurant employs. For example, the Greek salad has a presentation of the just the... More

If Ithaki means "destination", and the end of your voyage is Greek food in the United States, you found it at this restaurant. Pleasant atmosphere, delicious food, reasonably priced for the quality and service. In my opinion Ithaki should be everyone's destination!

My wife and I went here this past week during another Fall heat wave. We were seated in the pleasant dining room and offered water choices as soon as we sat. Bread with oil and a tasty tomato and cheese tapenade were next. We ordered the Mousakas and a Greek salad. Both were perfectly done. We highly suggest this restaurant... More

We chanced upon this restaurant while driving up the coast. I"m so glad we found it. I had the lunch special. It was either haddock or cod on a warm orzo salad bed. The fish was cooked just perfectly and the sauce on the orzo was lovely. The meal was accompagnied with some beautiful homemade bread and a homemade spread... More

I like lamb. I really like Lamb Shanks especially if they are cooked properly. Recently I was there with a party of six. Our waitress and wait staff were courteous and professional. They don't hover but are attentive. Our food was great! I ordered my usual (they don't always have them on the menu) the lamb shank. It came with... More

Dined here twice recently, on a Sunday and a Tuesday evening. We were seated in the dining room, which is quieter and more formal than the bar area..A fan of the left side of the menu, I enjoyed six appetizers - the Greek salad, the beet salad, the octopus, the calamari, a seared scallop "special," and the mussels - all...
