“Lots of nice touches”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 via mobile

Stumbled across this place looking for a quick lunch.

Free bottle of water, the usual free WiFi, and a great way of serving Parmesan all nice little touches. And a nice soundtrack!

The food was also very nice: pasta and pizza being the chosen dishes. Great fresh juices.

Service efficient.

Worth a trip.

“Good food and amazing staff”
Reviewed August 28, 2014

The Greca Pizza is so good! Juice of the day was a mix of cucumber/cranberry, loved it. There is WiFi and helpful staff, so nice! We stayed there some time while waiting to go to the airport and felt welcomed all along.

“Good, but could be better...”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 via mobile

The food was good, and made with fresh ingredients. The fresh made lemonade was also very good. The quality of food and drinks justifies the prices (which are 25-30% higher than the average in the area).
My overall rate is 3,5.
My partner liked it but personally I did not like:
- the recipe of my Chicken Salad (3 thin slices of chicken), which had caramelized nuts (kind of the Italian torrone): a little peculiar, if not awkward (I'm Italian)
- the "collage" of the place itself: some kind of Italian touch (menu, names of the dishes) but with the US format of the post-industrial loft + music (too loud for lunch time) from the American '30s.
Foodwise, a place with great potential...

“Very nice atmosphere ”
Reviewed August 22, 2014 via mobile

Good setting, great location... Ordered black pasta w seafood. The shrimps didn't taste fresh and pasta was very bland. My husband ordered risotto which was fair. Saw their pizza which looked really good. Service was also very good!

“Something different downtown”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

I do not go looking for Italian restaurants usually when I'm not in Italy. Because they are too expensive, and the ones less expensive always propose something different, the same for Chinese cuisine, a long story that I will not do here.
This restaurant in the heart of Athens is one of the finest I have visited on my trip: 5 stars (or balls) for design, wherever the architect's creativity is expressed in the best way and also go to the toilet is "pleasant" here. The service is good although I would liked more attention (three and a half stars). From the name this restaurant aims to mix different experiences of reception and entertainment, and menu talks about different culinary cultures. However, the (italian) mushroom rice was good, it should be creamed a little 'more but I give 4 full stars. The Amatriciana a bit 'less, it was not uneatable but if there was the cinnamon it would have benn the usual interpretation of non-Greek dishes in the pan (three stars). The restaurant has failed the "coffee test", it was bad as everyone I've been drinking in Greece (do not just get the best blend and the best machine on the planet to know how to make coffee).
The price was right.
The average of the ratings would be 3 and a half stars, which can not be attributed on Tripadvisor. I round 4 for encouragement and to invite you to go there.
