“Very good food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2012

The hummus, pita bread, and tzaziki are to die for. Owner is a great host. We usually get takeout on the way home. Sometimes dine in. Always best when the owner is there.

Bonus: next to a good craft store.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

I was part of a group of 4 ladies who stopped in for lunch on a Tuesday. The friendly owner waited on us, and made a few suggestions. Lunch menu is extensive. We tried the hummus, fries with feta, beef & lamb gyro, chicken panini, lentil soup, balkava. All were great. This will be my go-to place in Monroe from now on!

“Authentic Mediterranean Fare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

Pasta, pesto and feta, oh, my! Try the kid's chicken strips with fries (with feta). I usually eat half of my child's dinner - it's excellent. Pesto is a favorite. Great for a delicious dinner and located near ben franklin.

“Worth a Stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2012

We were looking for a place for lunch other than a buger joint, happend on Bella Balducci's in the Safeway strip mall. Small space, but warmly appointed. We were warmly greeted by the host/owner and seated immediatly. The menu is small but with ample choices.

We tried the Falafal appitizer and was OK. We both ordered Gyro's, one beef, one beef & lamb, when they arrived they were both beef as the kitchen was out of lamb (disapointed). What we received was a greek salad wrapped in a pita topped with Gyro meat and feta..wonderful! The pita was some of the best I have ever had; warm fluffy and tender. All of that for only $5.95, what a bargan!

This place is worth a try when traveling through Monroe..

“check your glasses for lipstick”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2012

After the fourth glass, I finally got one without lipstick stain, noticable heavy lipstick. Seriously, four glasses later to get a clean one. Food ok, service ok, they were slow so we received sufficient attention, but I hate seeing idle staff wispering behind the counter when not tending to a customer, they should have been rewashing every glass in the place. Turned my stomach after the 4th glass, enough that I will not go back.
Had been there when they first opened and had enjoyed it. Not now.
