We like eating at this restaurant because the food is consistently good & the service is very professional. The restaurant has been renovated since we last visited in the fall. It looks like a taverna on one of the Greek islands. Tonight, we ordered the...More

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal - beginning with grilled octopus, saganaki and a tapas plate full of wonders. For the main meal, three of us shared two "specials" (lamb and seafood linguine) and an additional plate of scallops (ordered off menu). Everything was delicious. The fourth...More
