Although only a limited number of tables the atmosphere and food were very good and the food typically Italian plus friendly service. Certainly good for a change from good Greek/Cretan food. Not an obvious location past the main Plaka Village square but worth a visit.

Very nice Italian restaurant serving freshly cooked Italian dishes. Service very good and helpful explaining the different dishes. The Tiramisu was excellent especially for somebody who doesn't normally like it. Definitely worth a try.

You can't better this restaurant. On the outskirts of Plaka so quiet, gentle surroundings. Friendly attentive service and in depth knowledge of the menu if you want help choosing from the always different specials or the delicious 'normal' menu. A very good selection of wines and of course Peroni or now the locally brewed Xarma. Took friends there for their... More

We had seen this place advertised in the area and decided to call in after a long days travelling. What a great find. The staff were lovely and very welcoming. The food was very good and it was good to try Italian food adjusted for Cretan tastes rather than English taste. Starters are generous, consider sharing. I had a pasta... More

"Una faccia una razza" risto-bar is a small corner of Italy in Crete. It is run by a young Italian couple, Giulia and Matteo, who will make sure you have enjoyable moments in a cosy and friendly atmosphere, savouring authentic Italian dishes or simply sipping a good glass of Italian wine.

The speciality is fresh home-made pasta, made according to traditional Italian recipes and served with wholesome sauces, which are made daily. On the " Specials " board, which changes everyday, you can choose among delicious pasta dishes, Italian style meat dishes, risottos and mouth-watering home-made desserts.

All dishes are prepared and cooked upon order, using high-quality Italian products, therefore maintaining the real Italian cooking style. A perfect change from Greek food!
