Located near West Acre Mall, our restaurant is a great alternative to the chain restaurants. We have all your favorite dishes from Italian restaurants and Greek restaurants along with pizza that is voted best in town year after year. Of course everything on the menu is a little better with a glass of wine. Not only are we a great place for dinner with the family, we can also host your next event in our free banquet room. We do not have set catering menus. Instead we want to work with you; ensuring that you have a great event no matter your budget.

Walked in without a res the evening before the Fargo Marathon. The place was packed full of runners all looking to carb load before their race. We were seated within 15 min, our server Jared came around right away and he brought our drinks shortly after. Our food was great. Spaghetti bolognese and... read more

Service was good and staff was knowledgeable about the menu. They even catered a special meal for our friend who is highly dairy allergic. The décor is average. The food was average. The pastitsio was not great and half was left uneaten. The lamb souvlaki was under done and most of the dishes were not even taken in doggy bags.... More

We went there for dinner after the Fargo Half Marathon. The food was ok. We ate it and weren't mad we went but at the same time we didn't finish it, didn't ask for a box and wouldn't go back. The Garlic Bread was the best thing we ordered which comes complimentary if that says anything. In their defense though... More

Four of us spent valentines day dinner here, and the specialty menu was divine. I love the ever changing wine list, and they had a fun orange cranberry sangria. Our table had returning favorite Tuscan phyllo, lobster pasta, Greek style lasagna aka pasticcio, and mushroom lasagna. Beautiful presentation, great flavors. But the dessert won me over! Banana chocolate creme brûlée.... More

A bit disappointed with our server (a male) who did not seem to know much about the menu items not a good sales person of your food especially deserts. He did not even bring the sample tray like the other servers did.He was good at keeping our drinks filled. Was surprised that you were out of all but 2 deserts... More

Artichoke dip tasted like warm mayonnaise. Greek lasagna dish was inedible. Made me think of chef boyardee or what I imagine that would taste like. Ribeye wrapped in fillo... Meat was over done and tough, and the dough was soggy and doughy on the inside, so not appetizing. Atmosphere left a lot to be desired: we kind of felt like... More
