Time Out says

Fragments of “ancient” frescoes and urns adorn the brick walls, and the open kitchen is festooned with corny but festive fruits, vegetables and cans of olive oil. An entrée of tender braised lamb in a clay pot is bathed in zesty tomato sauce. Fresh fish, charcoal-grilled and dressed in olive oil, lemon and herbs, was flavorful but overcooked. And an appetizer of ouzokeftethes, meatballs in an ouzo sauce, tasted overprocessed. Still, during the dinner hour, the dining room buzzes with families—it must be the friendly prices and fun atmosphere that keep them coming.

I can't stress enough on how much I love this restaurant. The wait staff is super attentive, friendly, and tries very hard to make your experience a good one. I had a large group of 14 people and booked super last minute and they were able to accommodate us. We also ordered light fare since we had plans after but they didn't seem to mind at all. Plus, they had birthday celebrations where they would take out sparklers and the restaurant would dim down while blasting a fun song. They also took out sparklers for our group as well even though we didn't necessarily have something to "celebrate" besides our college reunion. Food wise, everything was great. I had the grilled calamari and lamb shank. Lamb shank has got to be the best lamb I've had in the city. You merely press it with your fork and the meat just comes right off. It was so delicious! Definitely coming back and bringing anyone who's from out of town to experience this lovely, chic, and fun restaurant.
