Excellent Food, but Service Lacking

We had been leery of coming back here since the change of ownership; however, they are making headway. My wife had the Scallops special, and I had the Shrimp. Both dishes were prepared perfectly and were presented nicely. Here's the downside - the server seemed to totally forget we were even... read more

The food was great (outstanding spinach side, lamb chops, and appetizers).. The food pricing was middle range and acceptable. The drinks were small and over priced. Considering the profit margin on restaurant alcohol Its Greek To Me should be embarrassed. The service was slow but friendly and almost quaint. We had a table of 9 hungry and thirsty diners. A...

We drove all the way across the city because of TA reviews that said this place was very good. We ordered calamari that turned out to be nicely herbed, but overly breaded. A gyro plate with salad, pita and tzatziki came with cold, dry meat. The pork souvlaki came with mashed potatoes, not the traditional roasted ones. A flaw in... More

Jimijp, Owner at It's Greek to Me, responded to this review

I am sorry you were not satisfied with your meal. Our calamari is dusted in flour and not breaded, and we have never done traditional roasted potatoes as a standard item. We have chosen to go with athenian mashed potatoes flavored with lemon and herbs. We take pride in serving fresh hot food, made to order. If you feel that... More

On the weekends try the fish specials. All fresh and prepared magnificently. Lamb shank marvelous. Jimmy and his partner are excellent restauranteurs. Greek coffee is excellent.

For starters we were encouraged to try the SAGANAKI, Kefalograviera Cheese which was delicious, two of us then shared a tasty moussaka which we enjoyed and the third person had Gyros which was huge and well flavoured and seasoned. We were given a complimentary dessert of baglava base with a cheesecakie topping which was very tasty but we were all... More

We have eaten at Greek restaurants around the U.S., and this one was the best so far! The cuisine is limited but very authentic; the wait staff is very helpful; and the quality of the food was very good. It is a small venue, north of Oro Valley, but we enjoyed our dinner thoroughly. We had the dolmathes (stuffed grape... More

This restaurant is a hidden gem. In a strip mall one would not normally expect a top drawer, gourmet restaurant but this restaurant is tops! From the ambiance, to the warmth of the staff and owner, to simply outstanding food of top quality you will not be disappointed here. Be prepared for a really good and nice dining experience.

My wife and I decided to take a drive north of Tucson today to enjoy the scenery and to have lunch at the Greek restaurant in Catalina that has been receiving such rave reviews. The mountains were beautiful, the sky was graced with lovely white clouds, the traffic was light and the lunch was absolutely wonderful. Since it was lunchtime,... More

Last night I had a delicious date with my husband at It's Greek To Me. Not only is my husband delicious, but I'm happy to say the food here is as well! We started with an appetizer of calamari, which was seasoned beautifully and cooked to perfection! Of course you can't go Greek and not have Saganaki! So we ordered... More

Just south of the Golden Goose thrift store is a little strip mall that has three restaurants...an Italian, a Mexican and a Greek...the Greek is set back from the road, situated between a crematorium and the local clothing bank. The ownership has changed hands in the last year or so. The menu is pretty much the same...prices perhaps a bit... More
