You usually think "seafood restaurant" when you're in Ipswich, but Ithaki is an unexpected "modern" Mediterranean restaurant near the downtown area. The food is interesting and excellent, the décor is understated, and the service is great and professional. The only minor negative is the menu is not self-explanatory; not all the menu items have explanations, so it's a bit difficult... More

A must if you are in the area. The food is excellent. I actually recommend most everything on the menu but the grilled octopus is amazing as is the calamari...and no better lamb anywhere. Nice wine list, always too full for dessert but always rave reviews...attentive service without hovering. This restaurant is well worth the trip...many times over!!

Ithaki is special. The owner pays special attention to ingredients, many of which are sourced during his travels to Greece. The restaurant has a more formal side with tablecloths, and seating in the cafe/bar area featuring paintings by local artist, Thorpe Feidt. I am Greek, and thus very critical of traditional dishes, but can fully recommend the moussaka and the... More

More than we expected in a small community. Some of the best Greek food we've had. Frequently there is good Mediterranean food in some "very casual" establishments. This is great food in a upscale venue --- yet not overly expensive. The servers were friendly and patient for those who may be unfamiliar with some of the dishes. Either "small plates"... More

This upscale Greek restaurant was recommended to us by our innkeeper. The food was nicely presented and tasty, but my lamb kabob was overdone, even a bit charred. My husband ordered the fish shown in the photo, which he enjoyed. Best to make a reservation, if you dine between 6:30 and 9:00.

Really nice venue, recently updated. Everything we have tried has been really good. Greek salads are large, so make sure to split it! Excellent service.

Upon recent suggestion, we recently visited Ithaki. First impressions were solid. Upscale, up beat vibe with very comfortable seating options. Our server, Christopher, was very helpful with menu suggestions and explaining the different dishes (which is great if you have not ever had Greek Food before). Our dinners, desserts and drinks were all absolutely fabulous. Being from Portsmouth NH, where... More

Went to Ithaki this weekend and had a wonderful lunch. We tried something new - grilled octopus which came with a fava bean hummus. Both were excellent as was the meal. This place has always has great service and food. Their greek salad is the best!

Its really hard to find well done Greek in Boston and the North Shore, it's usually cheap and plentiful and you get what you pay for. We'd heard about Ithaki but assumed it would me more of the same - not so! This is upscale Greek and Mediterranean, and a very pleasant surprise. Nice wine list, Greek wine, and the... More
