Description: la Gorgona is the only Italian restaurant in Karpathos Island. it's located in the main square in Diafani village, close to the fountain. 2 minutes walk from the pier and along the road to the ferry dock. A beautiful veranda in front of the sea for romantic moments and also chairs in the square to feel downtown :)Gabriella, the cook, offers both Italian and Greek food. As she says, she also offers "smart conversation"... A very nice place to eat, drink, reading a book listening to music or simply watching at the sea! Don't go away without asking for a dessert; all cakes are homemade, fresh every day. Let's also have a "limoncello" prepared with organic lemons from Diafani gardens. We accept reservations and prepare fish soup/seafood on demand. Free wifi.

..and the best desserts - home made cakes and Limoncello from Gabriella's own hand. Delightfully situated overlooking the bay and the 'Waiting Diafani Woman' this is a real treat for visitors & locals alike. Local food or Gabri's pasta, a very friendly atmosphere, music to suit the mood...I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be...it's too easy to spend a whole day here!

Eating exellent food, italian or greek, looking the wonderful sea, talking with people from everywhere, listening good music, playing guitar and singing everybody. This is "la Gorgona", a place that has a little place in my heart

Great food, good music and great company. The food is Greco Italian, well priced, well cooked and well presented. The cakes and sweets are divine. But more important than the food is the social atmosphere that Gabriella generates. You will not be alone here, you will find good company and friendly, interesting people. Bravo Gabri
