Visited for dinner, lovely atmosphere and fairly busy. Downside of this was that service was quite slow on the night we visited, although the staff were friendly and accommodating otherwise. We ordered a focaccia starter, risotto and Gorgonzola pork for mains, tiramisu for dessert along with a glass of wine and water all for €38. The food was all very... More

We visited on a previous visit to Crete and were keen to return. Very good food, wide selection and great service. Lovely atmosphere too with good standards. We'll certainly be going again.

By the sea shore with nice view to the sun set, it offers great Italian food. Don't miss the primavera salad. The pizza was also great and at the end they offered for free a glass of proceco wine. Excellent service and nice decoration

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

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.
