“Decent.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

This place was here thirty plus years ago (it was half the size). I think the same family still runs it but it's a little different. Have ordered the chicken souvlaki pita a couple of times and that by itself is plenty of food. Haven't tried the pizza recently but it was excellent a long time ago. Have done the greek salad and it was okay but not great.

“Ok for Some Things”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

The greek specialties are good, but recommend staying away from the italian items - this is not the place for meatballs or parmigiana.

“Really enjoyed our meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Our meals came with Greek salad. We were given a generous family size bowl of salad filled with fresh lettuce tomatoes, feta and olives. It was fantastic. We were also served garlic bread sticks. I had eggplant with three ravioli on top. The meal with salad was $12.95. You could get ala' carte items, but most meals were around $12. It was excellent, and cooked perfectly. The others in my party had the souvlaki on a pita, which also came with the salad. They really enjoyed their meals. We liked our meal so much we went back for dinner. I had the eggplant parm. which was excellent. My husband had the lamb steak on a pita, which he found too fatty and didn't enjoy as much as the souvlaki. The next time we are in Ithaca, we are looking forward to trying their pizza there, which looked amazing. The restaurant was very reasonably priced. The service was excellent. The atmosphere is basic nothing fancy, but a nice clean little place with booths, that could accommodate a large crowd in the center if necessary, or children.

“A MUST GO in Ithaca! Best egg plant parmesan- !!! Very reasonable prices. Good value for money!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

The greek salad is fabulous,! Highly recommended!
The Egg Plant Parmesan is SUPER FABULOUS! Non-greasy- it is cooking at its best. Tried Egg Plant Parm in more expensive restaurants in Manhattan etc and NON COULD BEAT Soulvaki House.
