Best calimari I've had anywhere - perfect texture. The chicken penne with light cream sauce was also fantastic. And our server Nathan was very attentive and made excellent recommendations.

Description
Taverna Agora is an authentic Greek kitchen & bar where friends & family enjoy good wine, eat wonderfully prepared, simple food and relax. The restaurant is reminiscent of gathering places found in Greece, with old world flavors and rustic roots. However, Taverna Agora expands beyond the traditional agora with a few modern flares, including hand-crafted cocktails, a gourmet marketplace and Sunday brunch.
