Went to Ithaka Greek Restaurant for dinner. Greet food and service. Ambience was very pleasant and inviting. Food and service top notch. We ordered the gyros with Greek salad and the Dolmades. We have the saganaki opa for appetizer. Would highly recommend to anyone.

We found Ithaka through the reviews on Tripadvisor and we thank previous reviewers for their recommendations. We walked over from downtown, a casual 15 minute or so walk. The restaurant was not that big, so the seating was a bit tight. The atmosphere was friendly,...More
