The owner of this restaurant opted for an Italian restaurant because every body else in town has a Greek joint he needed to stand out. The food was very good -- both the Italian and the Italian variations a la Greek. Sunset is a nice time to arrive; locals and tourists tend to arrive around 1930 - 2030. House wine... More

This is one of the greatest restaurants in the area! Excellent food and great service! It's ideal for early dinner after a long day at the beach ( which is just a few meters away) during the summer or gaze at the amazing view on a wintery lunch! You must try their pizza! Delicious!!
