Visitors of Nafplio who stroll around Staikopoulou str in search of a good place to eat should not miss Itria, a wonderful and well-priced Italian eatery. This small and cozy restaurant is set in simple and rather industrial style and was formally named Popeye Bistro. It draws all kind of crowds, from families with kids to groups of young people, who all seem to appreciate its wonderful pasta and fantastic pizza, all made to Italian style. That means thin, light pizzas, Italian ingredients and al dente pasta and risotti. All times I’ve had lunch and dinner there my meal has been excellent: pizzas tasted great, salads were huge and with the freshest vegetables and pasta dishes took me straight to Italy! I particularly liked the ravioli stuffed with spinach and ricotta in a parmesan sauce and the spaghetti with mushrooms and hazelnut sauce. And since details make the difference, I have to mention the fantastic just baked bread rolls which came hot straight from the oven, the bread sticks served before your order just like in Italy and the chocolate covered coffee beans offered at the end of the meal. No wonder why i keep going back to Itria every time i visit Nafplio!
