“great place to eat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

Wonderful food, great service, great atmosphere! The veal and eggplant parmesan are unmatched. I have never had a bad dining experience here. This is a family-owned operation which takes great food and service seriously.

“Lunch included the best broiled fish I have had in years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 29, 2012

Picked this from YELP looking for a place for a business lunch in an unfamiliar town. Small, unassuming family run Italian and Greek restaurant - easy to pass by because exterior looks tired and neighborhood is nothing special. Open the car door in the parking lot, and the aroma of garlic carries you inside.

Traditional red leather interior, lots of travel posters, very untrendy, But the food was unexpected and enjoyable. the broiled scrod I has was as fresh and flavorful as I can remember. A client's Italian meat loaf was a meat loaf parmagiano, covered in melted cheese and tomato sauce. I wish it was closer to home.

“Off the beaten path.......but worth a try”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2011

It's on Quincy Ave.,in an out of the way spot and somewhat difficult to find. Straight out of the 1970's Very retro decor. The food is a mix of Greek and Italian specialties, with seafood thrown in the mix. Despite the hodgepodge, they do what they do reasonably well. On this visit we had the shrimp scampi and the fish casserole(shripm, haddock and scallops). Both entrees were very flavorful and fresh. The portions are huge, so the odds are there will be leftovers. We skipped the dessert offerings, choosing another venue instead. The service was attentive and not overly rushed. The bill with the tip was just a shade under 50. USD. They do serve a full menu all day long, so if you're not sure what to have, it will be on the menu here. Enjoy.
