Description: In the early 70s a famous Italian chef, Giovanni, starts his trip to Greece. During a cruise he arrives in Mykonos, he gets thrilled by the Greek islands and the Greek light and opens restaurants on the cosmopolitan island and in Psyri in Athens. Santorini, however, becomes his last stop, the final destination of a journey full of experiences and challenges. On the magnificent island of Santorini he meets Niko Topuzi, a real connoisseur of authentic Italian pizza with huge experience! Together they envision a partnership and the creation of a unique Italian restaurant. Their dream comes true and Cacio e Pepe opens on one of the main streets of Fira. The authentic Italian cuisine and impeccable service make it a hot spot with fanatic customers, not only travelers, but also the residents of Santorini.

After four days of Greek food we were looking for a change, and this place didn't let us down. A menu full of the normal Italian menu items - pastas, pizza's etc. Particularly enjoyed the bruschetta as an appetiser, and the profiteroles (filled with a chocolate mousse) for dessert. Staff very friendly and seemed to be enjoying their work, and the restaurant would have to be the cleanest we have found in Greece.

we visited this restaurant twice while visiting Santorini! Although on the main st (so no view of the Caldera) the food is really good. Order the bruchetta, made with fresh tomato, it is very tasty! Pizza, pennene, aioli pasta and lasagna were all good choices at reasonable price. Service was great. Try it, you won't be disappointed!

This place deserves a visit. The food is very good and the service was great. Does not have an Italian feel and the lighting isn't great, but hey, that's Greece.

Great pizza (vegetarian and salami) and good service. House wine also very nice and reasonably priced. Very quiet but we ate early. Definitely worth a visit and I think we'll be back before we leave.

We visited Cacio e Pepe following positive reviews on Trip Advisor. Pasta was undercooked (not al dente) and very hard. I think a restaurant that charges 9 EUR for a pasta dish should only use fresh pasta, not dry pasta. A couple next to us refused to eat their pizzas...Avoid...
