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.
