Went Saturday for dinner for 4. Small restaurant, small town atmosphere. Crowded but very short wait. Very good food - very tasty but a little salty for those concerned about salt content. Nice menu with lots of good choice. Calamari appetizer was very tasty, but...More

We were eight friends meeting on a Friday evening. It was crowded so a reservation is necessary. We were warmly greeted by the owner/hostess. One of the many delicious appetizer we ordered was the Saganaki, the fried cheese with lemon and oregano. I ordered the...More
