Very nice pasta and salads. Extremely friendly staff. Quick service. Must try the Carbonara. On the downside it is a small place so not easy to find a table on rush hour.

Nice Roman place with personalized service, good wine, and excellent Roman cuisine. Odd to be eating a genuine Roman cacao e pepe in the midst of Greek restaurants, but the chef here does it right. Just a little pecorino, water, and not too much pepper....More

Near the Acropolis, but still with reasoable prices. Delicious selection of freshly made pasta dishes and pizzas. Friendly and efficient staff. Quite small and very popular so advisable to book.

Just off a main road near the Acropolis museum this is a great little restaurant! Really good atmosphere, lovely simple Italian food. Service is great though portion sizes are not huge. A good alternative to Greek food however.

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer

with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
