    Sssslllloooowww service. 10 minutes for the waiter to come to the table for the first time. Then waited awhile to get regular pasta with marinara, which I believe should already be cooked.

    Highly recommend the Baked Chicken dinner. It's a bit of a sampler platter. You get a great tasting piece of chicken and a side of pasta with both Mizithra and marinara toppings.

    Food is overpriced for the quality, pasta overcooked, chicken breast tastes more like those pre grilled frozen chicken strips sold at Costco, bread was good once, cheap sugar loaded ice cream.

    They don't note which diner in a party ordered which dish, so it's chaotic and disorganized with large parties. Just grin and bear it and listen for your dish to be shouted out.
