Saw this restaurant on my way to work one day and finally made it into dine. Had the Gyro dinner with roasted potatoes and specialty green beans. Appetizer of Stuffed grape leaves, kalamata olives, pita bread, feta cheese, and hummus so refreshing on a warm...evening. Topped it off with a phyllo-filled custard. The meal was delish and the server was top-notch, very friendly, and went the extra mile to make sure our first-time dining was memorable. Kudos to this family-run Restaurant. There is a veranda for outside dining if you prefer. Had my heart set for Spanakoupla (not sure if I spelled that correctly) but it was in the process of being made and would have taken an hour longer to finish. So I will get some on my way home from work tomorrow. The owner came over to us and apologized for the delay but a customer had just come in and bought the whole tray of the spinach and phyllo pie. Do try this wonderful Greek/Italian restaurant in Troutville. Behind the Exon Gas station off Williamson Road.More

Why didn't we know about this place before? Oh, they don't advertise. So let me help spread the word. Excellent, very tasty food. We very much enjoy when a restaurant's owner visits our table and asks about our dining experience. We got a visit from...both the husband and wife owners who are both very personable. I loved the Moussaka I ordered. My friends enjoyed the Chicken Parmesan and Eggplant Stack a lot! Try to save room for desserts if you can. We will definitely be back!More

Wonderful takeout gyro, pizza. Recommend pesto chicken pizza with extra pesto. Had been meaning to do dinner here and simply had not -- COVID-19 takeout provided an excellent opportunity to pick something up. This restaurant does have altered hours for now. Order online and call...in to pay by card over phone. Close to Hollins University.More

The selection is wonderful and the food is delicious. From the initial contact by phone to find out their location to the exemplary service, one could not ask for more. We will definitely come back again.

my husband enjoyed the food here; he ordered chicken parmesan. i wasn't quite as happy; i ordered a gyro. the service was good but slow; she worked the floor alone, and we understood that. family members had eaten here and enjoyed what they had. because...of the weather, they were able to sit outside; we weren't so lucky. the greek salad i had was very good, so i had enough to eat, but i was disappointed in the gyro; i expected slices of lamb and beef. it turned out to be something that looked like turkey bacon.More

My family needed a place to gather after a funeral. Irene and her staff were wonderful to work with. They set aside a corner of the dining area for us. They were warm and welcoming and expressed their sincere condolences for our loss. Everything about...this meal was easy for us. While it was too chilly to eat outside, we did all appreciate the porch overlooking the creek. An unexpectedly lovely view. The food itself was delicious. We had all kinds of eaters in our group of 20 -- vegetarians, vegans, gluten free, picky, and so forth. We all found food that we liked and everyone commented on how delicious everything was. Bonus: Definitely try the Aphrodite dessert.More
