Many years ago we spent few months in Greece. This place feels like that time. The food was great, from saganaki, followed by horiatiki, moussaka and ending with agginares pasta. All great vegeterian dishes. The waiter matched perfect wine with that combination of dishes. Great...More

I've been a customer for more than a decade and once they moved across the street the quality has suffered tremendously. The place is not clean and everything tastes like it came from a can or frozen bag.

This is a small slice of Chicago's Greektown, albeit about eight miles to the west. There's a menu of familiar and well-prepared Greek favorites, Greek wines you find only in Greek restaurants, and friendly waiters who know their stuff.
