There is a reason that Ithaki Mediterranean always scores high on Boston, Boston area, and North-of-Boston restaurant polls: It is just that good. Ithaki combines traditional Greek dishes with innovative Mediterranean favorites, always using the best and freshest ingredients available. In fact, if the fish, meat or produce available on a given day do not meet Ithaki's exacting standards, then... More

Built in an old bank building, this modest place has an eclectic Mediterraenean menu. Try our favorite lamb shank, or souvlakl for sure. As you would expect their appetizers like dolmathes are also very authentic.A good selection of wines from the Aegean region are featured. Greet Petros, the owner and compliment him on the varying gorgeous flowers both outside the... More

This is a nice restaurant but gives off a snobby presence, the food is different but good, drinks are average and service is ok.

The Ithaki was a welcome find....loved the decor with Valhouli artwork, pleasant service and Greek food with a gourmet twist. We had had a big lunch, so we ordered appetizers. Loved a shrimp and feta first course, ...great Greek salad and bread with dip. The kefthetas were quite different but had a delicious lemon sauce,..dolmades were disappointing. My husband is...

One of our favorite restaurants, in the heart of Ipswich. Superbly prepared. A tad bit pricey, but definitely worth it!

There is a lot that is very nice about Ithaki. We had lamb ravioli, grilled octopus (best I've had in along while), and flaming saganaki for appetizers, which were delicious. However, the server left the flaming cheese on the table and walked away leaving only a small lemon wedge for us to put out the flames when a half lemon,... More

My hubby and I have been to Greece often and this was a wonderfully authentic experience. The food was excellent - the "dips" are large, but the main course was a sensible size. My husband had the moussaka - it was truly out of this world - better than some we've had in Greece! A rich sauce and lovely béchamel... More

We went to dinner here with my sister and brother-in-law who live in Ipswich. They have told us so much about this restaurant that we had to try it. I had the greek salad and grilled chicken. Out of this world. My husband had the roasted chicken dinner and his meal was delish also. Great restaurant and it has a... More

I recently sat at the bar with a friend and had drinks and appetizers. This authentic Greek restaurant is tastefully and nicely decorated. The two bartenders were very attentive, knowledgeable about the food and wine, and pleasant. The bar chairs are very comfy. We arrived shortly after they opened to avoid the crowds. (5pm) The drinks were all about $10... More
