Located in the pre-chic Athens centre. Dressed in blue carrying an Aegean tone. Fine mediterranean Italian cuisine. Open kitchen ceremony, basement locus, small posters of vintage provenance. Excellent toilet facilities, very kind waiting, courteous, informed. Food of fine standard. Freshly prepared salads, adequate italian main dishes, simple but of excellent value wine selection. Strong on starters of all sorts. Carrying a multifarious crowd of all sorts. Interesting location near the French Institute, the Opera, the centre and the finest of locations, the Lycabettus Hill. Snugged nicely. Not to miss if you want no-nonsense good staple.

this was a delicious discovery. went there for a lunch during the week. restaurant was half empty, especially in the non smoking section. luckily, no one in smoking section did not smoke - do not know how they manage to divide the smoke from coming into non smoking part..that could be a problem.

good waiter, very simpatic guy. first came with appetizers which all seemed delicious; we chose goat cheese and some local sausages. delicous, especially sausages. afterward we ate pasta and gnochi. all was excellent, almost like Italy, and I did not expect such a good pasta in the middle of Athens. ate one with zucchini and salmon, freinds had pasta with prosciouto and
gnochi with curry and chicken. everyone was very satisfied with the meal.

would definitly come back!

Used to be my favorite, but last time i was so disappointed by the food quality. Maybe this was because i went for lunch at 14:00.
However the place, the restaurant is situated is really worth visiting especially if you have plans for a long night (food& drink)

Good quality, delicious Italian food in the heart of Athens! The plateau of antipasti is a must. The pasta is outstanding. Try also the dishes of the day and the house wine. Value for money. Good service.

I keep going back to this place whenever I can't think of anywhere else to meet friends. It's consistently nice food, decent prices and a nice atmosphere, but nothing spectacular. It used to be non-smoking too, which was brilliant, but now they've added a smoking section. The service is good, apart from one waitress who always seems like she's having a bad day. Hey, maybe she is. Most of the pasta dishes I've tried are good, as are some of the meat dishes and most of the primi. The salads are a little bland for my taste. Of the deserts, the tiramisu is very good, anything else I tried was a disappointment.
