Some of the best Greek food in the city! I had the lamb lunch plata no my wife had the chicken platter. Both great, but the chicken was better. Also we both had the avgolemono soup to start. Everything was delicious! Thanks

Had a fantastic lunch here at a great price! The salad/gyro combo was the perfect sized portion and was served quickly. Food was excellent and service good. I would definitely return!

Quality ingredients and a warm family atmosphere make this a winner. As repeat customers we've found all the dishes to be excellent. The restaurant is small so please make a reservation.

We really enjoyed this Greek restaurant! Next time we go here, we will leave some time to order the whole bronzino for two which folks at another table had and it looked great.

While I was dining there, I actually heard a vegetarian order food. I am not sure about peppers, I would call them and ask. They were very accommodating to us and the tables around us. The food was very fresh and very good!
