Who would have thought that tiny Catalina would have such a great Greek restaurant. It was like entering a Greek village with authentic music, decor and food. Our quick evening meal of Gyros plates were very filling and nicely seasoned. The beef/lamb was very tender and the salad tasty with salty Feta cheese. The wine list had a lot of... More

Made a reservation and arrived 5 minutes prior, 15 minutes later no one had acknowledged our existence so we left. This isn't the first time this has happened but the last, we won't return.

This deli and restaurant combination is the best place to visit on your way to and from Biosphere 2 (about 15 miles to the north). It is also very much worth a detour anytime your int he northwest corner of Tuscon (near all the canyon resorts). The staff and management are all very eager to please and ensure you have... More

If you only eat one meal in Tucson, let it be at this establishment. My gyros were better than any gyro, they had crispy edges and so tasty. The tsaziki was like whipped cream. My husband had an amazing seafood stew. Jumbo shrimps, calamari, and assorted fish in a decadent broth. Don't be fooled by the strip mall location, this... More

Ate here while visiting over Spring Break. Do not let the location fool you, the cuisine, atmosphere and wait staff are incredible. We arrived around 8 on a weekday and were the only customers in the restaurant. We were promptly greeted and served by a waiter that was more than competent and knowledgable on the menu. He was friendly and... More

The restaurant is much nicer inside than on the outside. Service is very friendly and helpfull. Now about the food: I LIKE REVIEWS ABOUT THE... More

We had a little trouble finding the place but once we arrived we were greeted with friendly service. The service was excellent and the food was very good as well. I had the chicken souvlaki and it was very flavorful. The owner was very friendly and came out to greet us. All around a great restaurant.

Ate dinner at "It's Greek to Me" Wednesday evening. No reservations were needed, but nearly all tables were full by 7 p.m. This great little restaurant is so convenient for us as residents of Saddlebrooke. Spouse ordered wine (Layer Malbec) priced at $12. I understand that wine can be much higher, but for us $12 a glass was high. I... More

Apparently, if they are busy, reservations are not honored. Our table was given away because another party DEMANDED it. We were on time but accepted this rudeness. No manager approached us, no offer of any comp or apology, except from the beleaguered hostess. Overwhelmed server...greed over a quality product.

We apologize for your experience. This is as unacceptable to us as it is to you. Your party should have been taken care of, in the manner that It's Greek To Me has become. We strive to the fullest that every customer leaves happier than when they arrived. Please consider giving us another chance, and please ask for the mobile... More
