Fantastic food in a quiet and relaxing location. Had the prosciutto and mozzarella starter followed by gnocchi and seafood pasta (gnocchi and spaghetti homemade and perfectly cooked) and ended meal with pannacotta. Would highly recommend a visit here. The staff are incredibly friendly and the food was fresh and delicious. A perfect way to escape the chaos of the tourist... More

Excellent fresh pasta, pollo pesto and risotto. Pasta was perfectly "cooked" al dente. Tiramisu and Pannacotta was outstanding. We will definitely be back!!

I ordered a pizza at this place delivered to my door. The pizza is true italian style with good materials and very tasty. Nothing to do with most of the rest pizzas in the city. I will keep ordering from him as I was very happy

Unfortunately not directly at a street where everybody will pass through, but it is worth the few meters detour big time. After a good 5 years of living and travelling on Crete, I dare say that this is amongst the best 3 Italian restaurants we have seen here. Food is outstanding, the cook and waiter very very friendly and forthcoming... More

Authentic Italian dishes in Heraklion. Very nice pizza and pasta at very good prices! The location is not ideal, it's more like a taverna than a restaurant and the service depends, if they are busy you may have to wait a bit but personally I think it is worth it if you are looking for good Italian taste.

thank you. I think you've figured out exactly the concept of REAL Italian pizzeria-trattoria. a casual place where you can actually find an authentic, no-compromise, high quality standards of food, average-low prices, friendly service but not too formal. basically we don't "WANNA BE" best regards More

Visiting often Heraklion in the past years I had the chance to enjoy the beautiful atmosphere and great food of Pesto several times. The pizza are extremely good, classic and revisited versions and always based on the Italian style. But do not stop with pizzas because the cooks can prepare many delicious surprises which combine Cretans and Italians biological products... More

We chose the restaurant because of the great recommendations. However I wouldn't go there a second time. If you are taking a table close to the street, cars or motor bikes pass by with 1-2 meter distance. So you can smell the exhaust fumes of the motor cycles or cars or when the traffic is stuck it can become loud.... More
