Capanna: the Italian trattoria of which the Greeks are proud


If you ask an Athenian for their best addresses, they always recommend this pasta and pizza restaurant.

Moussaka instead of lasagna? No! If the Athenians are proud of this trattoria, it is not only because its pastas and pizzas are excellent. It was designed by the firm Studio K, a group of young architects whose recognition today extends beyond Greek borders.

They embody the Greek revival by mixing tradition and modernity. On the walls there are ceramic tiles, on the ceiling, mobiles that look like flying saucers, and, on the mezzanine, barn-like louver shutters. Sit at one of the tables and order, according to your appetite, a Milanese risotto, a Regina pizza, or gnocchi gorgonzola. Everything is fresh and homemade, another point of national pride.
