This is the best Italian food you can find in Heraklion. No way you will be disappointed.The owner is Italian, so he knows what Italian plates taste like...

You want Italian food in Heraklion, you go there. Pizza, pasta but also salads and antipasti, they all share the real Italian style of Alfredo, the owner and head of the kitchen. Thin and crispy pizzas, greatly sauced pastas and don't miss the Tiramisu, freshly homemade together with the Limoncello. Certainly the best Italian choice of the city !

Simply excellent! True Italian taste in everything! The only thing I find as negative is that they allow smokers inside..... No problem during summer, but during winter is a bit of a problem specially if you choose to seat upstairs.... Thank you very much !

We love this restaurant and have eaten here many times. We love the pizza and the pasta especially the creme pasta with sausage. Alfredo and his daughter Emanuella are super friendly and sincerely wonderful. We finished our meals with cappuccinos and a Tiramissu that was out of this world. It's a hidden Italian gem in the heart of heraklion. DAS/... More

Must be the best Italian Rest in town. At least, the best Italian Pizza, the Napples way. Good list of wines, good enough house wine and in the summertime the outside place is friendly.

this restaurant is really A-MA-ZING !!! I'm Italian but i'm on Crete for work so I went to this restaurant with collegues/friends and they really discovered what Italian pizza, pasta and wine is.. The food is REALLY Italian/Napolitan food, the staff is friendly as nowhere else and we paid just 18€ for 3-course dinner.. If you have the chance, go... More

About food...small dishes, expensive, poor taste. Bad service with 1 waitress for a lot of tables. Bad speech of the owner to the staff of the restaurant in front of the customers.

I decided to place a dinner for my Italian colleagues, (some Romans, some from Florence). I will write just two things.... Small quantity vs prices, and nothing to do with the prices in an Italian trattoria or ristorante. That from my Italian friends...now concerning the quality just the pizza....nothing else....and that's overrated as well...! Dissapointment....!

I've been there with my husband, because a friend told us for a good pizza to go in Alfredo. The location is not so good, the restaurant needs a renovation, inside is very dark and the atmosphere is not good for a dinner. I liked only the service. But we didn't like the food at all - the pizza was... More

Have been here because suggested by a greek friend. Usually I do not go to italian restaurants out of Italy unless I am away for a long time and miss a plate of pasta or a pizza.
