This place is a trek from Tucson. That said, the food is very good and I have eaten there on four occasions in the past year, all for dinner. The octopus is wonderful. As is the spinach spanakopita. The staff and owner, Jimmy, are very accommodating and friendly. The prices are in line with the quality and serving sizes. The... More

We all had gyros and they were very filling and delicious. The tzatziki and pita was a great side dish as well. Great place to eat on the way back to Tucson from Biosphere 2.

Yes, this is real Greek food but it's far from the best I've had. The calamari was excellent but our main dishes off. The lamb shanks had little flavor. The restaurant is in a shopping center and inside it is kind of basic. The servers were friendly and attentive. A mixed bag but we were hoping for better.

I just love chicken kabobs and the ones at It's Greek to Me are ALWAYS delicious. Tender chicken breasts grilled to perfection. The rice and pita bread complement the entree just fine. We're not wine drinkers but the iced tea and lemonade were great!! We'll go again soon because we know it will always be the same.

My husband and I stopped here after a hike in Oracle State Park. I was afraid after a 5 mile hike that we were not dressed for lunch. But our server (do not know her name but she was Amazing! Adorable! Spot on!) We got there and apparently they had been slammed (a good sign on a Saturday afternoon). But... More

As a couple we enjoy dinner at It's Greek to Me for the lovely ambiance, the terrific fresh food prepared with individual dietary considerations, the weekend specials and the friendly, efficient staff. This is a jewel of a restaurant where everyone is considered family. It is always a great experience.

This is a small and friendly restaurant just North of Tucson, on Oracle Rd. in Catalina, The quality and variety of dishes is good and the prices are fair. My wife and I come here about twice a month. We like that the dish flavors are consistent and the service prompt and courteous. My favorites are the Greek salad with... More

We stopped in for a quick weekend lunch while in the area and very much enjoyed the experience. The service was prompt and friendly, our server kept our water glasses filled, and our meals (pastitsio and soup and salad) were solid, if not remarkable. Overall, quite good.

We have been going to Its Greek to Me for about nine years. When it changed ownership a year ago, we were worried the quality of the food would go down. On the contrary, it is better than ever! The fish, chicken etc is always supremely fresh. You get so much for your money! We love it there.

As you, I have been eating here for many years as well. Why change what doesn't need to be! Other than some small upgrades, we have tried to maintain what the customers have come to expect. Great food! More
