With love from calamari

Probably the best fried calamari I have ever had (ask for it extra crispy). Everything else is great too. No fancy atmosphere or service (order then sit0 but a very good place to catch a quick delicious Greek lunch.

Fast service, good food. Can be crowded, small dining room but cozy. Reasonable prices for lunch or dinner.

Healthy fresh made Mediterranean fare. Fresh ingredients and limited alcohol service. Don't miss the spicy hummus and feta appetizer. The grilled chicken is tender and delicious. Eat here and you'll feel you're doing your body good.

Fresh and varied menu. Fast service, inexpensive, and friendly employees. The atmosphere is friendly and clean. The traffic was continuous and much busier than expected. Try the spicy feta and humuus, lemon soup, and any of the pita wraps. The cucumber water is an unusual treat. I would have liked a few more Turkish treats like hibesch.

My wife and I love to have the gyro plate at Nupa's. The food and staff make you feel that you are getting authentic Greek food. Especially like their shrimp plate. The staff is always friendly and helpful. You order at the counter and they bring your food to you.

Went to lunch with two friends and this was my first visit to this restaurant. It took too long to get our food and it was extremely salty. You have to pay in advance and then wait for the food.....it is like a fast food restaurant. Not good for families. They have tables with two chairs and the place is... More

We live in Rochester and this restaurant is one that we keep coming back to. They even have gluten free pita bread! They use great ingredients so the food is always top notch! This is one place not to be missed.

We have been back to Nupa several times and it looks like a local favorite. We see a lot of people pick up food to go after work. The ingredients look fresh and not over cooked . The calamari salad was very delicious.

Very friendly server took our counter order, but he was tremendously overwhelmed manning the counter alone. The service was so slow they offered us a dessert free. Food is terrific, but perhaps they need to estimate the crowd better or create more efficiency in the kitchen. Caprese floretas are our favorite snack. Order is small. Not a meal.
