We enjoyed the food. It was crowded enough for a Sunday night. The service was good and quick and they were very friendly.

We wanted to try something new. Went to try their greek food. It is tasty and authentic. We were short on time so we had the business lunch menu which was diverse. Definitely going back.

Been here for dinner, the menu features almost every dish that I remembered from the holidays in Greece, plus a bunch of articles that I didn't really know what they were. Very nice quality, good portions and great friendly service.

We hadn't intended to eat Greek food in Italy but this restaurant was a short walk from the apartment we stayed at in Florence so we thought we would give it a whirl. The internal decor is lovely, light, airy, and has a Greek island theme. All of the staff were wonderfully friendly and welcoming. We were each given a... More

This place was amazing. The owners were so nice and made my girlfriend and I feel very welcome in a foreign city. They even gave us a complimentary dish of traditional Greek cuisine with amazing feta cheese and olives. Going to this restaurant was a perfect end to our trip in Florence.

Great and authentic Greek food but a little on the expensive side. Friendly service and even belly dancing (on Saturday night)

I didn't actually eat in the establishment, just stopped for some takeaway with a few friends. Despite being Greek food lovers, we all found this food to heavy, tasteless and oily. But the worst was yet to come: we all felt unwell that evening and it took us a two or three days to recover fully. I honestly can't recommend... More
