“Greek Italian - a block from the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Great LITTLE place in Manhattan Beach - hostess / owner was a little slow in approaching us and when we asked for a table by the window we were told it was reserved. So we sat within inches of another table for 4. Literally inches away. It turned out to be okay - food and wine more than made up for it.
Very long menu with great selection of Greek and Italian favorites. Great wine selection too. We ordered some Greek wine that for $6 glass was outstanding. They had my wife's favorite Greek cookies too.
We will go back for sure.

“Not Good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

We visited as a family for lunch. The food was completely average (Gyro, Greek Salad, pasta). The only good thing was this blueberry beer they serve.

It is the type of place that you will eventually forget exists, except your wallet will cry out to you and say, "why did you do it, why?".

Avoid.

“Life should come with a large side of Old Venice tatziki sauce.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

We've been here a few times before and always had great food... the worst part of the meal is picking out the meal, too many wonderful choices. Price are reasonable, service is attentive, generous portions.

We will most certainly be back.

“good food, good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2011

The food was just fine for lunch, a menu mix of Italian and Greek (Mediterranean specialties). We ate outside on the main street of Manhattan Beach. Could look down the hill to see the beach and the ocean.
