“cosy atmosphere, good food, decent prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

Delicious -italian mostly- dishes. The name of the restaurant describes the food. Good wine list. Near Plaka area and within walking distance from city centre (Syntagma square).

“Hidden little cozy italian near Acropolis”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2009

Reaching the restaurant is not very easy as it locates at a very small street, somewhere between Dionysou Areopagitou Pedstrian Zone (in front of Acropolis) and the narrow old streets of Makrygianni Neighboorhood. It's a very friendly, small and full of colours place, that doesn't have many tables. They mostly serve pasta (carbonara, napolitain, etc) and they don't have many main dishes (such as meats, steaks etc). They also have salads and delicious home made desserts, such as tiramisu or cheesecake (everything is made daily).

Generally it's a very nice, youth style, dark, coloroud and with great atmosphere restaurant, with normal prices and tasty dishes. Fresh, clean with great service.

The bad points are:
It's not open all day / They change menu from noon to evening, so you cannot find and choose everything / Small menu-lack of main dishes / Reservation needed.

Parking is not easy at this area, but you can reach it a few step away the Acropolis Metro Station.
