Unique pasta choices along with falaful & gyros kind of items. Made to order, fresh.I had an artichoke pasta with a side of falaful, which was filling. It was uncrowded mid day and I visited with the owner.

Delicious food! Their chicken marsala is my favorite. Service is good for as busy as they are during lunchtime. My friends have ordered Greek menu selections and are very please. As for me, it will always be the chicken marsala.

If you like Greek food, this is a great place. Good food, friendly service and reasonably priced. Parking is always available on J street or behind the restaurant.

I had lunch here and thought the portions were small and really not very intersting. We had to ask for bread and the service was just ok. For the price and portion size I would pick another place.

I have eaten here a couple of times and the food was just ok, one time it was so greasy I almost sent it back. I won't go back.

Love the hummus and soup. The spicy lamb is to die for. The gal that cooks in the kitchen cooks with love and you can tell.

Ok, not sure of he is the owner, but the waiter guy usually looks grumpy but he is a total sweetheart. I had the steak salad and it was Delicious. The place could do with an update but it's worth a visit. I usually go...More
