“Courtyard dining at its best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

A really nice venue tucked behind the harbor side eateries. The manager (could be the owner!) is hugely entertaining as he challenges you to eat what he wants vs what you want. Not in a bad way as you do actually eat things not normally plumped for! The wine is quite expensive if you go by country preferences BUT if you go down the Greek route (organic) you will find some real gems. "Robust" red is the place to start at a fraction of the Italian amerone.

“Lacluster italian”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Overpriced fancy food with no real creativity or any one outstanding dish or flavor. Bread was the highlight, but this is Greece, you'd have to go to the Chinese restaurants to be disappointed in the bread.

“Opening Night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

My wife and I ate here on their opening night - it was quite an experience. The owner was very attentive! I think we were the only couple eating but he looked after us very well. The "cabaret" were two elderly gentlemen playing ancient musical instruments - it was an unforgettable evening!

“Pretty Tasteless”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

We ate here in late July 2012. The atmosphere is nice and the feel is Italian, with music and decorations. Unfortunately the food does not follow up on that impression. We ate 4 different pizzas, and three of them tases like cupboard. I tried the diavola, but it was tame and a real disappointment. Actually it tasted like a margarita, nothing more. The other pizzas was much alike. For strarters we had verious Italian bread, and this felt like the real thing, and is the only thing that prevents me from giving this a one star rating.

“Delicious Italian in a charming restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Back in a little side street, a classy and not expensive Italian restaurant, our food was delicious and a welcome break from Greek food, pizzas were divine! They also had Prosecco sparkling to drink, a nice change from wine as well.
