“We so nearly missed out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

We arrived in Glyfada from our hotel around 8pm and headed off to check out Il Salotto, it was deserted so we decided to go for a drink and come back to check it out. Turned up at 9.30 with very low expectations to find the restaurant completely rammed. I have to say the maitre'd was fantastic in juggling his tables and bookings to accommodate us, he could tell how disappointed we were that we had not made a reservation. From start to finish this restaurant and the service we received was excellent and going by the number of diners we were not the only people to think so. Would love to have a restaurant like this locally in the UK.

“Proper Italian meals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

We arrived in Glyfada in the afternoon and because we would have the next 3 days to spend in Athens, we had dinner in Glyfada instead of going into Athens.

This restaurant had a modern look and served proper Italian meals. Many italian places outside of Italy are simply pizza/pasta joints, but this one featured proper italian meals. I had Italian Pie as first course and Penne as second course. There was a lot of attention to detail, even the bread that was served with the meals was nice: different variaties fresh from the oven.

Like many places in the area, this restaurant suffered from lack of clientele - we were early (greeks don't dine until late) but even when we left we were the only guests. This is a pity as it's a very nice restaurant that, based on its food quality, deserves a full room of guests.

Compared to other restaurants in the Athens/Glyfada area this was slightly higher priced, but worth it - it was good value for money.

If you visit Glyfada you have to visit Il Salotto, especially if you are a non smoker. The food was excellent, very nice environment, friendly staff.

This is one of the few restaurants in Glyfada that are smoke free. Excellent food and Service. I will definitely go back.

“Really nice italian restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2013

I am always going in this restaurant whenever I am in Athens. I love the food and the service is always good. Everything is fresh and I love the variety of salads.
You can see that it is almost fully booked during weekends as many greek families like it. So that is always a good sign.
