Authentic Greek lunch restaurant (open Fridays for dinner). A mother and son working wonders on food and hospitality. All your favorite Greek/ Mediterranean dishes expertly prepared with love. Stephen is a joy as host, waiter, busboy, wine steward and son. Don't miss this gem.

Came here after the Marine’s graduation and it was delicious! The cook’s son gave us baklava on the house and one of the guys we were with didn’t order, so they gave him fries on the house too! So kind! Great service and delish food!
