Taverna - Don Camillo

This used to be the Sitaki taverna opposite the Coop supermarket but has been reborn as an Italian doing pizza, pasta and various other Italian cuisine and with it's elevated position above the road it's great for people watching if you have an edge table. 
The decor is quite smart with the chairs painted in distressed pastel shade and the Vespa handlebars stuck to the outside wall by the menu make an interesting feature. 
The meal I had was great starting with a very tasty beef carpaccio and followed by a rich Gorgonzola rigatoni which was made with spinach leaves and walnut pieces. With a glass of house red that cam to 17.50 euros which was fairly reasonable, and they served herb bread with a few olives as a pre starter.
On the house was a little galaktoburiko (milk pie) with a cherry sauce, which was also delicious.
The staff seemed very friendly and the pizza kitchen is open to the dining area so you have a view of the chef throwing the dough about. Given the coming and going of the moped with top box I'm guessing they deliver too.
So if you can drag yourself away from the sea views, this place I'm certainly recommend if you fancy a meal away from traditional Greek dishes.
