Athens Pizza Restaurant Review

: Immigrants from Greece John and Asiemoula Papadopoulos made their livelihood in restaurants, opening the first Athens Pizza in 1966 in Connecticut, then this location in 1977. He now has passed away, but she continues on, keeping the faith with the neighborhood restaurant they established. There’s much more than Greek pizza here, as the menu is replete with classic family-style dishes. However, the specialty pizzas are first-rate, especially the Santorini with its feta cheese, kalamata olives and sun-dried tomatoes. A six-incher individual pizza makes a great snack or light lunch. Of course, you’ll start with the calamari, although we also recommend the spanakopita. For more substantial fare, look to the lamb and chicken, the pastitsio (classic Greek mac ‘n’ cheese with meat) and moussaka (the layered eggplant-meat casserole). Finish with a classic Greek sweet. Some Greek wines are offered on the wine list.
