We loved this place! It was a bit off the main shopping district of old town Chania, but so worth the effort to find it. The people are so nice, and the food was amazing. We went back 4 or 5 times. The kitchen is...semi open to the dining space, so you can watch the chef work his magic. You go up to counter to place your order, and you get a buzzer that lets you know when your food is ready for pick up. The white sauce mushroom pizza is so good. We ask for extra white sauce on ours. You could create your own pasta dish, or the daily pasta special was delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant.More

So it was not super hard to find, great location, great food, but the atmosphere could use a bit of work. It was a big crowded and we ended up eating in the back, which seemed to be part of an alley with a wall....4/10 on the environment, 10/10 on the food, just needs a better environment but overall, 9/10!! It’s an Italian restaurant with great options for everyone, (we have a vegan and a very picky eater in our group, both LOVED their food, as did everyone else!) you go in, select a table, and then when your ready go to the register, order your food, pay, and you are given a buzzer for when your food is ready!! Overall amazing, highly recommend!More

Visited twice on my visit to Chania last week. Wanted a break from the higher end places gorging on seafood, just some great homemade pasta at a great price. Self service, nice people, all good.

Who knew we would have some of the best Italian food we have ever tasted in Chania? LAGANAN hasa choice of 7 pastas, all made fresh. The plentious list of 17 pasta sauces and combinations all look delicious. We went with the very generous portions...of Bolegnese and Fiorentina; mushrooms, garlic, heavy creme, parsley and truffle oil. The Caesar Salad was huge and the best homemade dressing with chicken, bacon, and parmesan strips. I am Italian, we have been to taly and are on our way there again, but they cannot do pasta any better than this. Also the prices are shockingly low.More

The concept of this restaurant is brilliant. The food is cooked to order and is absolutely delicious. The restaurant is comfortable and the staff are friendly and conscientious. The service is fast so it’s great if you are in a hurry but if you are...not then you can take your time and enjoy the hustle and bustle of this busy little restaurant.More

This restaurant is a must-visit in Chania in my opinion. Great value, HUGE portions and a friendly atmosphere. Feels very relaxed but at the same time a very high standard. We recommend the garlic bread, Alfredo pasta and Milanese risotto for sure. The self service...aspect is absolutely fine with us and added to the laid-back feel.More

Since we read about this restaurant at the trip advisor, we decided to go and find out how good it was by first hand. The result was the exact same, the pasta that we ate was very very good, also the amount of it. The...staff was very friendly, the restaurant it self service but that’s ok. We recommend it.More
