Description: Me and my business partner, created this bistro, according 3 factors:quality, aesthetics and quality. We try keep prices as low as we can even that creates us some other problems..... We are a small bistro that can provide food services up to 18-20 people at same time but only after a reservation.Normaly we can serve 15-16 same time...We use a high quality certified organic extra virgin olive oil that we also produce..I mention that as we use olive oil in most of our dishes..Please feel free to contact us for any further information you want... Thank YouAlex

“Delightful Italian Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

We looked at the menu outside this restaurant & considered keeping on walking, due to lack of choice and then we saw the 2 pastas of the day & were swayed to go in. Salami & aubergine bruschetta was devine! We tried the 2 pastas & both were excellent also. There was only 2 locals in this restaurant when we arrived & 2 other tourists & 1 local came as we were leaving, don't know how more people haven't discovered this little gem!

“Amazing little italian bistro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

Tiny little bistro, only has like 5 tables. We went in for lunch, and the owner/cook woman was so unbelievably friendly and talked with us about coming from Italy and all the food she makes. The menu at lunch (may be different at dinner) was small (a few salad options, some bruschettea options and two daily pastas). We shared a buffalo mozzarella and tomato salad (the cheese was amazing), a speck brie and arugula bruschetta (and she made half of them with a spicy pastrami instead of the speck to give us some variety) and a daily pasta which was penne with mushrooms and italian sausage in a cream sauce, which was unbelivably flavorful for how simple it was. We finished with a tiramisu, which I normally dont like, but was very well done. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to change thingsup from the tavernas and get something different.

“Excellent homemade Italian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

Of the various places I dined in Heraklion this was my favorite. Everything was made from scratch with great ingredients. The pasta was perfect, and the tiramisu rich and delicious. This restaurant is very close to the Lato Hotel where I stayed during my visit to the city. Eat here and you will not regret it!

“Italian food with a Greek touch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2012

Bistro La Boheme is tucked away in central Heraklion on the corner of Idomeneos and Epimenidou. Their menu includes a delicious selection of bruschetta with prociutto & mozzarella, tomato, herbs and porcini mushrooms. Their pasta dishes made with sweet Greek tomatoes and onions are out of this world. A salad with lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet bell peppers, mushrooms, egg, etc. is a meal in itself. The couple, an Italian woman married to a Greek, are delightful, the service is excellent.
