    Start by ordering the lamb riblets. Then figure out what you want for dinner.

    Good idea to order shared appetizers for the table. The appetizers are outstanding and authentic. Chef Mario is one of the best in the area!

    Incredible food! Olive oil tastes like it is straight from the olive grove back behind the restaurant. Refreshing watermelon salad, fresh and yummy feta on everything, & ribeye grilled to perfection!

    Impeccable service and great recommendations from the waiter. The vegetarian risotto and lamb chops are our favourites. The octopus is good for starter too
