I left after consuming the worst salad ever. Wilted greens and Ceasar dressing I think was spoiled. Needless to say, didn't order entree! Might be typical college eatery.

This is about the best authentic northern Italian food you can get in Athens. The atmosphere is great (especially if you get a table overlooking Broad Street) and the wine selection is world class. I went here with a business associate and friend Federico from...More
