Went to Oroscopo last night at 10 pm because my 4 year old wanted pizza. Walked a mile in the rain with two little kids to get here but well worth it! Home made pasta and pizza, as well as more traditional Greek dishes. Met the chef and the owners who were so nice and friendly and gave us free soups, free desserts and drinks. Everyone was so nice and the food was super yummy and different than the other more traditional Greek restaurants! Definitely recommend when visiting Athens.

Dined at this restaurant over two nights. Soups are fantastic. We also had Wild Mushroom Risotto and the Oroscopo Pizza. Both Delicious. Would definitely recommend.

This was our best meal during our stay in Athens.
It's an unassuming little place off the major roads, and the service was a little bit slow. However, we thoroughly enjoyed the food - everything from the bread and dips to the squid tagliatelle.

Our entrees were great, and we were offered complimentary water, soup, and desserts.
Highly recommend for delicious food, hospitable service, and reasonable prices!

Went there with a couple of friends, the waiters are super friendly and aware, the food is a mixture of greece and italian food, which is ok, but nothing special, especially in taste. It seemed to be a family restaurant, which is nice, but with a weired mix and bad music.

We had to plough through a demonstration in Syntagma Sq to reach Oroscopo - which is a long way by foot from the Plaka - but it was worth it. A modern interior, it has a pleasant feel and one immediately felt welcomed on what was a not particularly busy Sunday night.

Lovely, warm bread and free (I think) bottled water is brought to your table and we were offered free soup too. I ordered kalamari, which came on a plate sufficiently large for both of us. We both had pasta as a main course and this was also plentiful and of very good quality. We decided not to order dessert but we got given a free cheesecake and ice cream anyway and then a free liqueur to end the evening. I have no idea how this business model works

The beer range was good - I had a Czech beer which is difficult to find in England.

By the end I was so stuffed I could barely walk but the whole meal for two came in at under 50 Euros. The only aspect that fell slightly short was the fact that the main course quickly followed the starter (and the bread and soup) when I could have done with a breather, but it's a minor cavil.
