We ate here the night before the Athens Marathon as it was the nearest place to get pasta to our hotel! All the staff were really friendly, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Would definitely recommend.

I went there with my family, wife, son, DiL, and two grandchildren. Everything, pasta, pizza an d bruchettos were very good. We all agreed it had a great meal, it may be a little bit hidden around the corner from all the tourist-traps with food-pusher all over the street. This is in a quiet side street and without ab aggressive... More

Nice cozy restaurant in the surrounding of the Acropolis museum - offers outside seating - one of the very few restaurants that does not allow people to smoke inside ( thumb up) - the service was good - it has very few dishes but all is with fresh pasta and we really enjoyed the food. Prices are ok

My family & I had a wonderful lunch at Belpaese. Walking distance to the Acropolis museum. Delicious food and very nice staff. Fettuccine al Pesto, Risotto al pollo e la tagliata di vitello erano buonissimi. Grazie

This place was amazing! Delicious food (we got pesto and a cheese and rocket pizza) and friendly service. The owner even came over and described the menu to us. If you're looking for delicious Italian food with good portions for a good price, go here! It won't disappoint!

Had a nice meal in here midweek. The service was ok and the waiter and very chatty. Found the food to be tasty but slightly less generously portioned than expected and the prices to be average for the area.

5 of us visited on a very hot day after visiting the Acropolis. Water arrived quickly before we ordered and we started to cool down. Lasagne, Tagliatelle with chicken, Pizza, it was all good... We would go back again. Tiramsitu was great, esspresso even better. Would recommend and go back...

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighbourhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
