Traditional Greek pizza place with non Greek staff. Selection is broad with focus on Greek and Italian selections. Service was unremarkable, price was as expected. Taste was good.

Group went while at the Nanaimo Dragon Boat festival. Been a spot for dinner for the last few years. This year - no service - ignored. The group got up and left - went elsewhere. Won't be going back. Unacceptable.

While I would recommend whatever food would be ordered-I do not think they could handle 75 people. Best to contact them directly. Gail
