We love Greek food but were often disappointed as many Greek restaurants serve exactly the same food and it tasts all the same. After reading al the positief reviews we decided to try this one. 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 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

This is one of my favorite places to eat when visiting Tucson. The people are super-friendly and really go out of their way to be helpful. We came in to get take-out after spending the day at the pool. The restaurant is fairly nice, so we felt a little uncomfortable coming in while still in our pool attire. Everyone made... More

I was a bit surprised that my family would want to go here when were from Detroit which is plenty filled with Greek restaurants, but we still went. The food was very good, although the rice pudding was a bit bland. The ordering was unique. We did lunch and you order at a deli style counter and then go sit... More

Just had lunch, gyros, good but not anything to write home about. Would eat there again if in the area perhaps try dinner menu and something other than just a sandwich.

Octopus is a must have! The service is great too. They provides a good selection of Greek wine to accompany seafood.

We stopped here for an early dinner on the way to Tucson and were over-the-top impressed with the food! I've eaten a lot of Greek food, which I love, and this was some of the best I've ever had. The gyro meat was cooked perfectly, and was moist with a nice char. The pita bread was superb, as was the... More
