“Traditional italian pizza - much welcome change of cuisine!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

We had had our fill of Greek traditional food and looking for something different when we came across here on our walk through Firostefani. Made a very welcome change as I had craving for pizza. First night it was full so tried again another night. It seemed busy all of the time. No view, set down off the road with a little outside space and cosy interior. Without the view, they dont charge the premium view prices though! Very reasonable for santorini caldera side dining. Service was attentive, professional. We had 2 pizzas and they were delicious, authentic, tasty, italian traditional style. Drinks were also very reasonable price. Would have ate here again if staying longer in area.

“Italian in Santorini”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

Sometimes you just need a pasta amongst all the gyros, souvlaki and moussaka. Good pasta and pizza and an Italian wine list.

“OMG ---- it may be in Greece but it was the BEST lasagna ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

We needed a break from Greek food --- and found this on one of our last days.
It was the best lasagna bolongese I have ever had.....I cried knowing I wouldn't be able to have
it again. I almost went back the next day to bring it with me!!!!

The staff was very friendly --- and the wine was delicious.

Kudos.

“Amazing Italian Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

We went here for an evening meal as we fancied a change from greek food. The food was brilliant and the staff were very friendly. The pizzas were out of this world!
The food was very reasonably priced 3 courses and a bottle of wine for €60 with a free lemoncello to finish off, you cant go wrong with that!

“Great food and excellent value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

We decided to try this restaurant after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and were not disappointed. In fact we went back several times as the food was so good. Excellent pizza and pasta and considerably cheaper than most restaurants. Mussels for a starter were great too. Overall, well worth the short walk up from Fira and highly recommended.
