I love the atmosphere of this place, and it seems to be popular. So we keep trying this restaurant to see what we are missing. The food is fine. I don’t think I’ve ever had a memorable meal there. But what I do remember is the service. Frankly, I have found some of the wait staff there to be rude.... More

The meal at lunch time was delish! The service was fantastic, waiter was quite attentive. Lovely patio area with white lights overhead..very romantic although it seemed quite a few business people were there for lunch. They also had a lovely room you could rent out of weddings, events etc.

I suppose this restaurant is most famous for its location in "Old Pasadena" than anything else. The food is average-good depending on your personal tastes. It's a great place for lunch and sipping wine and appetizers in the afternoon. The balcony is the best spot to eat but inside is well decorated and comfortable as well. I wish there was... More

This is sort of my neighborhood hangout and treat all in one. Everything is made fresh and right in front of you! Dino & Brian always take very good care of us and we always have a great time. Let's not forget the happy hour - OMG you'll have to fight the urge to come everyday. The grilled calamari salad,... More

Food is good, nice wine and great ambiance. Main restaurant is the 2nd floor balcony/patio, which makes you feel like you're in Europe.

In the old town part of Pasadena with a great outdoor balcony overlooking the street. Food was good, wine list was nice, and the service was pretty good. A little loud and crowded for business but we made do. Nice place to take a date or small group of friends.

Great location - in the middle of old town pasadena just next to other greats such as Sushi Roku. Also next door is an awesome movie theater ipic.. The seating is on the second floor overlooking the city.

Great Greek and Mediterranean food. We had the humas as a starter and it was great. The place is busy on a weekend so plan ahead. We sat up on the balcony and it was perfect diner before our concert.

Our friends brought a bottle of wine and the cork fee was so reasonable. Then we ordered a bottle of wine from their list and it was very good! The food.... GREAT! They were very accomodating with some special requests due to our diet. Customer service was excellent and the atmosphere was very nice! We enjoyed it very much and... More

We were able to eat inside with a party of 6 without a reservation, but the great outside seating is booked way in advance. Loved our Greek food, as well as the fish. Generous servings in an upscale place where we felt fine wearing t-shirts. Not sure where you should park as we walked from our hotel.
