Good pizza and pasta restaurant with views of the sea and harbour. Good sized Italian pizza and good beer and wine. When you’re in the mood for Italian food in Rethymno, this is a good place to go.

Looking for some carb-loading we went for dinner last night. Nine year old loved his tbone steak and the rest of us adult types liked our pasta. Also was thankful for the traditional free Greek desert. House red bottled wine was solid too!

We ate there four times, mostly pizza. The restaurant serves Italian food. The waitresses are very polite and we didn't have to wait long for our food. The prices are alright and the atmosphere is enjoyable, as the restaurant is near the sea.
