We ordered three dishes, the carbonara was overloaded with Pecorino which made it dry and you could only taste cheese! I ordered rigatoni with pumpkin and cheese nothing to remember and difficult to digest. The third plate was much better with tomatoes and fish. The...More

This is a small restaurant with great home made pasta, wonderfully tasty salads, great music and friendly and helpful staff. There are a couple of special dishes each day, the Bios beer is great and the red wine is palatable. Relaxed atmosphere.

Cozy and quiet Italian restaurant in Athens. Delicious pasta dishes. Relaxing atmosphere. If you go, be sure to have time to sit and relax because the dishes take a while to come out. Enjoy a bottle of wine while you wait. Filled with local Greeks,...More

No stress is the motto of the restaurant. So that means that it will take time for food to arrive which gives you time to enjoy your company and that food is being made especially for you fresh... but if you don't like it, it...More

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
