Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were recommended this place by an American who says he has been coming to the restaurant for 12 years. The Italian owner of this place cooked us probably the best pasta I have ever had and that’s coming from someone who has been to...Italy many times and has a real love for pasta. I honestly couldn’t knock this place, pasta to die for.More

EXCELLENT!!! There are many so-called "Italian restaurants" in Athens, but they are managed, owned by Greeks and merely serve Italian food! Thus they are mostly mediocre. This one is THE REAL THIN G! The owner is from Rome and knows his job. The food is...great, the service is spotless. Apart from the great first and second courses don't miss the outstanding TIRAMISU!More

We came to the restaurant following the recommendations. Kind waiters, but the dishes we ordered were disappointing. My wife ordered linguine which had a bitter taste. I ordered seabass which was not seasoned and tasteless. The only consolation was the tiramisu which was delicious

Great food at very decent prices. Pasta was great so was the starting bruschetta. The staff were also very attentive and kind , gave us all we need even with one hiccup ( they forgot our beer but quickly rectified the mistake ) . Definitely...recommend if you need a spot for dinner after visiting the acropolis .More

DISASTER! Mains came before starters and after the manager realised their mistake he said ‘can I just leave this with you?’ Absolutely not. Leave one main course out of 4 before anyone’s starters have even arrived?! Really?! 2 out of 3 starters then arrived and...were finished 15 minutes before the final starter came. 45 minutes later and still no mains so we left without having our main courses which I have never done in my life. The ‘manager’ was without doubt the worst member of a hospitality team that I’ve ever come across in my life. No apology, no acknowledgment of the complete disaster of a ‘meal’ that we had (drawn out intermittent starters which the ‘hot’ ones were in fact cold), charged us full price for the food that we had even after clearly stating how displeased we were with the whole experience without any goodwill gesture whatsoever. Just truly awful in every single department. Best way to describe the entire team of staff (servers, manager and the two chefs) is unable to run a bath never mind a restaurant. DISASTER of a restaurant and without question the worst ‘dining experience’ I’ve ever come across in any country. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!More

Nice little location with a small amount of seating. Direct view into the kitchen where you can see everything from peppers to herbs being picked fresh for dishes. Food was absolutely delicious, we had the Cacio e Pepe and the spicy pasta. Perfect portion size...for one person. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful with any questions. Highly recommend!More

Excellent food in a terrific location. While in Athens, my daughter and I craved something different to the local cuisine of gyros, souvlaki, etc. We found a wonderful restaurant by the name of Belpaese, Italian cuisine, 1 minutes away from the Acropolis Museum. I am...allergic to dairy products and they made me a special pizza. The service is wonderful. We are thrilled with our meal and experience.More

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
