Everything was way over cooked. I have never had salmon so overcooked and it is what I order pretty much everywhere I go. I went to flake it apart for a bite and it almost broke my plastic fork (to-go order) Vegetables were burnt and...More

The food is something like you would find in a nice restaurant in a much larger city. Athens is lucky to have such good food in a small town.

My mom loves this place so we came for lunch. Excellent lasagna for me, pasta Milano for my brother. Definitely will come back next time we're in Athens.

If you're expecting homemade fresh Italian, this isn't your place. Everything is frozen, very low quality. Lasagna was a disappointment as was the ravioli. Very little effort involved here and it showed. Food wasn't even heated thoroughly, I won't be coming back here at all....More

Not bad. The sauce could use some improvement. I had the chicken parmesean and it was way too thick. My table mate had the eggplant parmesean and it was also sliced thick. No alcohol
