Best food I had in 3 weeks while traveling in Europe. And hands down the best Italian I have ever had. The owner made you feel like family he hadn't seen for years. Great bloke!!! And much cheaper than we thought too

At Glyfada they responded ok, even though I asked for the Manager and the man who answered said it was him. He tried to tell me it is not his fault but of the company that printed them.... More

Dear sir Thank you for your comments about our menu. I took the chance, although with delay, to correct the mistakes that you were so kind to bring to our attention. However my feeling is that most of the people who visit Tripadvisor don't care much about the orthography as for the food the atmosphere and the service, and unfortunately... More

However I don't agree with your... More
