Since It’s on the second floor, you might walk by it. The food is very good as is the ambiance. The service is excellent. The moussaka was very tasty.

Such a nice quaint restaurant with consistently good food. I had the branzino special with roasted potatoes and brussel sprouts and it was delicious!

Perfectly grilled fish, excellent asaparagus, a nice bottle of Italian pinot grigio in an enclosed patio overlooking a courtyard. Nice, relaxing and tasty - a refreshing alternative to the crowded spot around the corner!

Let's start with the bad part: if you can put up with being schooled by a twenty-something year old hostess, you will be eating in a very noisy ambient within 12 inches from the next table guest. We reserved a table at 7: 00 pm...More
