This has to be the best Italian restaurant on Crete. Superb quality food to a very high standard and service / friendliness above and beyond. A must for food lovers (and the wine is great too)

If you are looking for authentic Pizza that really looks and tastes as you would expect in Italy this is the place for you, great food and service by far the best in town, its well worth the stroll along the beach front

Tjenerne og George er på fra starten og er opmærksomme og snaksaglige, så du altid føler dig velkommen. Har prøvet mange retter og er aldrig blevet skuffet. The waiters and the owner George are very familiar and they have a very high service standard, so you will allways feel welcome. We have been served a lot of different dishes and... More

Went twice in a week it was that good. Stands out with range of food, mostly Italian, to many other restaurants. Would highly recommend it for when you don't want to have the usual burger, steak, moussaka etc. Road outside is being dug up but no issues inside. You won't be disappointed.

Staff was ignorant and rude, almost not willing to work, having issues when someone would dare to ask for details on the dishes. Food was bland and boring, very expensive for the low quality served. Not recommended.

This, mainly Italian, restaurant makes a change from the usual local fayre as, although there are Greek items on the menu, it would not be out of place in any city in the world. The Pizzas are made in a proper pizza oven (which doubles as a room heater in the winter months) and the pasta dishes are tasty and... More

A good choice of Italian and Greek food is available, the Italian dishes are a pleasant addition to the usual taverna menus in Crete. All our food was tasty and well cooked, with excellent service. Our visit was out of season, many of the restaurants/tavernas in the area were closed for winter so we were pleased to find that Pagliaccio's... More

I spent 3 nights in Rethymno and dined here twice. Lovely well cooked pasta and big portions. Staff were helpful, entertaining and very friendly and they interacted extremely well with customers. Well worth a visit or two.
