We came here thinking it would be a great place to get good Italian food. Boy were we wrong!!! First off the waitress was completely out of it. I'm not sure if she was on something but she seemed to be all over the place....More

Had a wonderful weekend here in Athens. My wife had the pork tenderloin and I had the sausage pasta. Delicious! We had two bottles of wine and lots of fun. Justine was the perfect server and we will definitely do that again. Large portions

The meat and cheese platters are quite good with a large variety. The dinner special was good. The restaurant is family friendly, but there is not child menu.

Was definitely the worst meal we ate during our entire stay. The server was obviously new and. Struggled to keep up with our orders. The lasagne was lukewarm at best and was tasteless. Overpriced disappointing food.
