Italian
In the early 70s a famous Italian chef, starts his trip to Greece. During a cruise he arrives in Mykonos, he gets thrilled by the Greek islands and the Greek light and opens restaurants on the cosmopolitan island and in Psyri in Athens. Santorini, however, becomes his last stop, the final destination of a journey full of experiences and challenges.

On the magnificent island of Santorini he meets Niko Topuzi, a real connoisseur of authentic Italian pizza with huge experience! Together they envision a partnership and the creation of a unique Italian restaurant.
Their dream comes true and Cacio e Pepe opens on one of the main streets of Fira. The authentic Italian cuisine and impeccable service make it a hot spot with fanatic customers, not only travelers, but also the residents of Santorini.

The Cacio e Pepe is an Italian restaurant, based on original recipes of traditional Italian cuisine.

Cacio e Pepe served us a delicious Italian dinner that made for a nice break from Greek food—which is also very good. My wife ordered the spaghetti with lobster and I had the tortorlone stuffed with Gorgonzola and walnuts, both excellent. The valpolicella wine was perfect. The servers spoke to me in Italian which I enjoyed using. Highly recommended!

Was expecting something a little nicer for a place that had been recommended by the hotel. The food was okay and they did not go out of their way to treat us special for our honeymoon. The restaurant was located in an alley and did not really set the vibe we were looking for in fira.

Awesome restaurant. Legit the best pasta dish I have had (I haven't been to Italy...yet). Service was a bit spotty but it was busy and they didn't have many working, so we gave them the benefit of the doubt. Super close to the main area of Thira but enough away from the busy area that it doesn't break the bank and gives outstanding food. I know it doesn't have a Caldera view but I'm sure all of the other restaurants on your trip will, so give this one a shot!

Subito accolti e serviti , un mix dì camerieri internazionali quindi chiunque si può sentire a casa , il cibo di qualità nonostante ci troviamo a Santorini , per un italiano dopo 3/4 giorni di mangiare greco sembra di essere tornati a casa ! Prezzi onesti e giusti per essere in vacanza se venite vi consiglio il risotto al tartufo con una bella bottiglia di falanghina e passa tutto

Ottima scoperta . Si mangia davvero all'Italiana. Ottimi antipasti, pasta al dente, la pizza non e' una napoletana ma è ottima simile a quella che si prepara a Roma. Servizio gentile, preciso e confidenziale chiedete di Ready, simpaticissimo.

We ate at Cacio e peppe, the restaurant was right next door to our hotel(Winery 1870)
The staff were very friendly, the chef is excellent, the food was the best we’ve ever had in Fira,
A family of 4 , starters, mains, dessert, 2 bottles of wine, vodka €145 , a fantastic price for all the food we had,
I would recommend this restaurant for friendliness , ambience and amazing food

This was a cute hidden spot in Santorini! We were looking to mix it up and have an Italian meal one night and we were not disappointed. It was in walking distance from our hotel in Fira and very affordable yet delicious. They have a large wine selection to choose from and many different kinds of pasta dishes! Highly recommend!

I took my whole family of 4 to a birthday celebration on a cruise. One of the highlights was the dinner we had in Santorini at Cacio e Pepe. The service was fantastic and the food was excellent. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for people who like to eat Italian food in Greece.

Food was pretty good overall for most of the party with us , however the Lobster spaghetti came shelled a little rubbery and obviously messier to manage. Ok but had better pasta.

This was a great choice for a casual and inexpensive dinner and a change from Greek food for one night. It is warm and welcoming and the pizza was excellent, I had the Italian Summer pizza which comprised mozzarella, Parmesan, rudolf and braesola and it was delicious,
