The restaurant is staffed by knowlageable and polite people. The food is first rate no matter what you order off the menu! Definitely try this place if your lucky enough to visit the island of Ios, Greece!

Excellent and fantastic choices of food that tasted amazing and a beautiful setting. A group of 5 of us have been travelling Santorini and ios for a week and this has been the best food by far, we went two nights in a row and were not disappointed with any of the meals. Great service. Highly recommended.

The price fair for the area. The pollo marinate is the most moist and best chicken ive had. The bread and pizza is better than anything in Italy. The food is homemade right in front of your eyes and the family is wonderful. I cannot say enough good things about this place. Best food ive ever had!!!

I was there a couple of days ago. The restaurnat is conviniently located next to a buss stop and a parking lot. It has a very different decor and it's quiet and enables privacy to any table. The food is great. Big portions in great quality. Staff is very professional and attantive. A must.

After over 2 weeks of traveling the Mediterranean, this was the best Italian food I came across. The pasta and sauce was to die for. The family that runs this place and the chef are all amazing. The restaurant has a really nice decor as well.

Literally the worst service I've ever received. We had about 6 different servers, none of whom knew what was happening. Waited 20 mins for a drink, 30 for our mains, and another 30 for the bill before we got fed up and went to the kitchen. All the groups around us were also not getting served. Wait staff was unapologetic... More
