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.

This is my second visit a year or so apart. It’s just as wonderful as the first. The atmosphere the service and the food make this place a must visit. It’s a hidden jewel 💎. Search it out and enjoy 😊.

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

What a great little gem! Glad it said don;'t be frightened by the gas station appearance. Don't let it deter you from going! Awesome food! Great service. We had the hummus [appetizer. My son ordered the 12 in pizza. He is a vegetarian. He took...the leftovers to eat on the trail the next day. All in all very good.Would love to go back if we are in area.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

Had a small family B'day party here yesterday evening. Our daughter had eaten here about 2 weeks ago and said how much she loved it so we thought we would give it a try as well. She was spot on with the recommendation. From the...moment we walked through the front door until we left 2 1/2 hours later, nothing but attentive service and excellent food. Had appetizers, main meal, desserts, wine, sparkling waters, etc... Everyone loved the food and nothing was left behind. Wine recommendation was perfect. This place is about as authentic as it could get. Would be nice to have the Parthenon in the background, but oh well! The owner, Irene, made several trips to our table to check on us, bring us items we asked for, brought us homemade bread fresh out of the oven, brought the B'day cake with candles herself (it was a Red Velvet cake she had just made earlier in the day). I personally had the Red Snapper and it was delicious. We will return for more fabulous meals.More
