Excellent authentic Italian food, friendly staff and fantastic location. Great pizza and pasta but don't miss the homemade sweets for desert! Really value for money!

It is an authentic Italian pizzeria. Pizzas are excellent and home made style. The staff is polite and helpful. It is one of the top places for pizza in Heraklion. Located downtown in the heart of the commercial center. Strongly recommended!
