a posh hut..

and now back to my favorite, Italian food. what is my problem? there is a place situated at the elegant Kolonaki area under the contradictive name “capanna”(means hut in Italian). do not get confused, neither the design nor the taste will lead to such comparison, it’s just inspired by the owner’s name in Greek. it is an urban trattoria-pizzeria, as sinful as it should be.


there you can get a table at the sidewalk, a celebrity gossip must, or indoors at the mix & match, rustic chic, little space. after all, it doesn’t really matter where you will finally sit as long as you get to eat!



they will welcome you with some deeply red pomodori on sea salt and focaccia,(a type of Italian bread). then you can and must taste the fine beef carpaccio topped with parmesan flakes, the luscious spaghetti with San Marzano tomatoes and basil and the perfectly charred and crispy, porcini prosciutto pizza; oh! this tangy melted Taleggio cheese. feel free to order more from the enticing menu, you will not regret it!
