I visited with a friend for late lunch on Sunday. It's a nice place - nothing fancy. Simple and clean. The service is a bit slow due to the kitchen to my understanding. It took sometime to bring us the bread/olives/wine and then the food. Other than that it's ok. Kind, smiling and helpful. The bruschetta didn't drive me crazy... More

My wife and I had two excellent meals at this small, quaint Italian restaurant. It is off the beaten path on a side street not far from the Acropoli Metro station. It is well worth seeking it out. On our first visit the server warned us it would a little longer than usual for our meals to arrive because each... More

After a couple of weeks traveling in Turkey and Greece, we were craving something different than the typical tourist fare...and searched for Italian food. We had also just been in Rome, so we imagined it would be hard to find anything that could live up to what we had just experienced. That said, we found AO&P on Tripadvisor and were... More

The ambiance is nice, and our waitress made great suggestions. However, only certain pastas here are made in house, and you can taste the difference! My brother got the pappardelle and porcini mushroom, which was excellent and the best dish we ordered. The bruschetta and special eggplant appetizer was excellent. The other pastas all had linguine, which was not handmade;... More

We stopped in here our first night in Athens, pretty late off the plane, having avoided what we came to call 'the gauntlet' more mainstream tourist type restaurants with waiters attempting to pull you in off the street. We walked past here, the kitchen door was open and the food smelled devine. On walking in we were delighted to find... More

The food is ok! They have a major problem at their kitchen. It's is not acceptable in half -full restaurant to serve the main course after 1 hour and 30 minutes!! If you are hungry don't even think of coming here!!

This is not the usual fake Italian restaurant, the chef is a real Italian, the food is amazing. Really warm place, the girls are friendly and always smiling. As Italian, I felt like to be at home. Suggested.

A friend and I were recently in Athens and happened upon this wonderful restaurant and had truly a wonderful Italian feast. The wait staff were delightfully friendly and welcoming. Our pasta dishes were tasty and the pannacotta melted in my mouth! I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a break from Greek food!

Overall, our experience was good. The bruschetta with mushrooms was fantastic, and we had the night's special salad which was very good - but very expensive compared to the rest of the menu: 9e for lettuce, grapes, parmesan and thin slices of zucchini (and not that big). For main course we had their homemade Papardelle bolognese which was excellent and... More

Our first night in Greece and we ate Italian - and it was Great!! Bruschetta with mushrooms that we would happily make a meal of and excellent entrees of tagliatelle with broccoli and ravioli with spinach and cheese. Gracious and competent service made for a really enjoyable meal.

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighbourhood Profile
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 numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
