Been coming here for as long as Vaso has been open. Great Greek and Italian. Salads are excellent. Don’t miss her deserts. She now has 2 restaurants in Alexandria. It is amazing the food that comes out of this kitchen.

Really good food. The chicken part was the bomb. The crispy cheese was really good as well. A bit pricey but the staff made up for that with the excellent service and presentation of the food. Will definitely come back.

Avgolemono soup not to be missed. Gyro among the best I have ever eaten. Food quality, service and friendly staff made it an altogether excellent experience. Went for a late lunch and the room quieted down nicely for good conversation atmosphere.
