New owner is fabulous! He walks around to greet you at your table and really tries to engage with his customers. Big menu, so many options. Great food at very fair prices. He's going to do well!

We were pleasantly surprised how good the food was st Souvlaki House. Our son moved in to his new apartment right across the street so we went into the restaurant while we were setting him up. It's a very casual place with a very homey feeling. Our waitress Debbie couldn't had been more friendly and sweet. The entire dining experience... More

We wandered in as the Indian resatuarant we were tryin got go to down the street was closed. The food at Souvlaki was horrible. We didnt have pizza and it sounds like we should have. the falafels were fried in a bad tasting oil. The olives were wrinkled. The carrots that came with the hummus were steamed and wrangled looking.... More

Stopped in to get a very late lunch (or early dinner). Friendly greeting and good service. Fresh salad and good food. We will be back to try some more.

Went with a friend who is a Cornell alum and who has fond memories of this place from his days in Ithaca. Not sure it lived up to his enthusiasm for the place, but the pizza I had was served piping hot and was quite tasty. Not the greatest I've ever had, but I would certainly not turn it down.... More

The worst gyro I ever had! Chicken was raw, pita was soggy, very blend, no sauce. It's seems they just throw everything together without care. Bad experience.

The food is very good, especially the pizza, my wife and I think it is the best in Ithaca. Staff is friendly, reasonably priced, the owner is the best. Go you won't be disappointed.

The staff are friendly and attentive. I'm sorry we cannot give a better rating, but our meals were consistently average. We were hungry for Greek food and this was pretty disappointing. I suspect college kids don't spend a lot of time analyzing these reviews, and are generally looking for mass carbohydrates, so their business won't suffer. The restaurant is a... More

I address this review to local diners. Having been disappointed during our last couple of visits to the famous Joe's on Meadow Street, and having a bit of a hankering for Italian, as a whim we decided to try this College Town tradition. The service was excellent--however, our table rated only fair on my trademark "sticky elbow" test. (A measure... More

Souvlaki House in Ithaca's Collegetown has been around for decades. They're in our neighborhood, and we love Greek food; so, what's not to like, right? Plenty when it comes to this restaurant. These people appear not to care. Two of us ordered the house specialty, Greek Souvlaki. The main meal was preceded by a salad and bread. The salad was... More
