Truly fabulous restaurant! A must visit if you like Italian food and especially if you are in the area. Even the most simplest of dishes were perfect like the spaghetti aglio i olio - so fresh! The fish carpaccio to start was excellent as were...the churros with cheese and honey - we had teenage kids with us who rated the pizza as best they had ever had and I would second that. All that with lovely and relaxed service - I would recommend whole heartedly - so much so we went twice out of our 4 nights in Athens! A real gem!More

I ordered takeaway with Wolt. Handmade potato gnocchi, Romana artichoke spinach & mascarpone cream. Paid 14 EUR for it and got an insulting small portion too salty and with no trace of artichoke. Almost no spinach. This is a scam!!!

V comforting food. Had the beef carpaccio, was delicious. The mushroom and truffle pasta was nice but a bit too much sauce and a tiny bit over cooked. It's good food, just a bit old school. Waitresses were nice the guys were a bit off...and I had to get up to ask them for stuff...there was only one other couple in the restaurant!More

Very nice choices and very kind personnel. The restaurant has a great list of wines to enjoy with your meal. We had a great time with our friends. We’ll become regular customers.

At this quality, a restaurant cannot call itself Italian trattoria. Starters were ok, especially burrata. But the mains were a disgrace. My carbonara was terrible (no sign of egg or guanciale or pancetta and overloaded with cheese) and staffed cannelloni (tons of bechamel and tomato...sauce) of the other party was awful. On the positive side, the staff was awesome and the wine list was very good. But, definitely, they cant call themselves trattoria. If you want to eat good Italian food, look elsewhere.More

Lovely time dining at this restaurant. Would recommend the gnocchi Gorgonzola (very rich) and overall just lean into whatever the server recommends. Would recommend if you are in the mood for pasta !!

The open area in the pedestrian street is just good, some of the chairs of our table were not stable enough, not the cleanest part of the street (not that it is a restaurant's fault). We were always waiting a lot of time to have...someone of the (very) few waiters looking to our side. Food quality good but not any excitement. Very difficult to park your car.More

Yesterday we visited Cupola for the first time. We did reservation for the table for 6 people the day before. It was friends and business dinner together. The reservation was from 7 o'clock. They told us, that we can stay maximum until 9,30 because after...us is another reservation. It was horrible feeling when we had visitors, we paid over 200 euros, the food wasn't something special and they do not let us stay even 5'more. They stayed over our heads until we left. I will NEVER visit this restaurant again. I will NEVER recommend it to anyone. It is expensive for nothing and the approach to a customer who constantly orders and pays....is an incredible nightmare.More

One of the best -if not the best- Italian restaurant in town! If you visit Cupola, try the authentic carbonara and the tiramisu. Once Cupola, always Cupola!!!

Make sure you save room for dessert because it's the best part. I got the chocolate torte, and it was to die for. So many amazing flavors. Cupola has nice ambiance, but the prices are a little step.

When you catch your self returning time after time to the very sane restaurant then it means you really like the food , and that is the case with Cupola , friendly staff make the difference ( even when the proprietors spread their children etc...in the middle of the restaurant - with all the special food- simply it’s not done - but presume ownership culture in Greece is different ) any way Pizza Tartuffe is so delicious so is the cheese spread served as soon as you are seated , love there past although for my taste I would recommend the tomato sauce is lighter I find it to heaven for my liking , the steak Tartuffe with mushrooms makes your pallet to want to eat more - there is an ok wine list ! The pasta is a good choice the sea food used in my spaghetti was excellent and fresh .. and the house salad is exquisite - atmosphere varies what time of the day and in the summer you can seat al fresco ...I had my reserve for the antipasti needs slightly better fresher but the quality remains good - the lady waitress with the blonde hair she is so so sweet and so patient she helped us choose our food and everything she recommended was more than fine - please Greece has the best Virgin oil use it ..!More

Pangrati
The elongated Panathenaic Stadium, built for the first
modern Olympic Games in 1896, acts as grand gateway to
the otherwise purely Athenian neighborhood of
Pangrati. This area of typical small squares, busy
main roads and residential streets will give you a
clear sense of what living in this metropolis is like.
A walk up quiet Markou Mousourou Street on the west
side of the stadium will bring you past the First
