This is a true family style restaurant. The food is a mixture of Greek and Italian food. All of it is excellent, as is the service. The prices are very reasonable. The pasta dishes are prepared just right and the red sauce is excellent. The Greek dishes are authentic. They also have frozen pasta dishes that you can take home... More

On our recent trip to DC, we tried this restaurant because it was rated #5 in the area, and we were nearby. Atmosphere was casual family and pricing was the same - not expensive. Staff was very fast and friendly. However, for an Italian restaurant, the pasta and marinara was disappointing and uninteresting. The DC area has many many interesting... More

I love this place. We live in the area (close enough, Van Ness) and have been looking for a restaurant that is very tasty, but not expensive. It's extremely hard around here! Everything is homemade--even my daughter's chicken tenders. Best she's had...and when she didn't finish them, we did! And there's a decent wine selection--including some great Greek whites, so...

A small very popular restaurant with alert staff, good reservation system, very tasty food, good wine list. The atmosphere is bright and pleasant, and there is outdoor dining on the avenue. At first it was very noisy, but that family soon left and all was peaceful and pleasant for us and our guests. Recommended.

We love their fresh bread, chicken Parmesan and awesome moussaka! Sometimes we eat it there and other times we take it home.

We ordered catering for our Holiday Party (30+ people). The food was excellent at a very reasonable price with generous portions! Excellent service as well. We will definitely order again. Thank you to Mr. Stavros and his team!!

If you are into a good pizza, this is the perfect place for it. We love the way they do the pizza and the salads. The rest of the dishes? Hmmm...say average. This is definitely a restraurant for pizza full stop.

I go to Manoli Canoli quite often in the summer with my family: we sit outside, order a pizza (I'll have a beer) and it's truly wonderful. They are a staple for people who live near Chevy Chase Lake, Jones Mill, and I often see their boxes at NCC Pool. I wish they'd make calzones, but I've never been disappointed... More
