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.

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

The atmosphere is embodied with a simple fresh design, beautiful and delicious food and service by a friendly, efficient wait staff. The restaurant is immaculately sparkling clean from corners to counter tops. Our meal was so tasty and the Greek salad that comes with the Neal was zesty and gracefully sprinkled with feta cheese and veggies throughout. Mmmm so good!... More

Let me start by saying the food was good. I started with the TrioDip and had the Soup/Salad entree for dinner. Their Avegolmono (Greek) Soup was wonderful and their Greek dressing on the salad tasted fresh. Wine list was nice and had a good variety to choose from. There were a few bumps in the road but Maria went above... More

I have been here serval times, I have had the best pasta ever, and the worse. It's a cosy restaurant, al little out of the way. Great for couples and families. The appetizers have always been great.
