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.

    We shared a big salad that was simple but very good. With the general quality of the salads in the island I would rate the salad a 4. We then each had one of the handmade specialty pastas. My wife had the salmon ravioli. The sauce, the ravioli cover, and the filling were all very good. 4.5 I had the Gorgonzola cheese with walnut cream sauce tortellini (they were called something else but were essentially large tortellini) The sauce was excellent as was the filling. However the pasta had points where due to being too thick where pinched it was under cooked and a bit chewy. Not al dente, but chewy. 3.0 We finished with a tiramisu for me 3.0 And a desert that’s coffee poured over ice cream for my wife 4.5

    Very well located in the heart of Thira, with excellent food, good portion sizes and excellent wait staff. Price was on par for restaurants close by. Tables were perhaps a little too close together as it was hard to navigate to get to the restroom without bumping into chairs, but a small price to pay for great food and drink. If you are in Thira, this should definitely be on your list.

    Our group of 8 had an excellent time at Cacio e Pepe. The food was delicious and service was excellent. All the dishes were served piping hot. A friend had a custom request which was accomodated. We will happily return if we have time while visiting Santorini.

    AMAZING Italian food in Santorini! The pastas were fresh and unique. Wine was delicious, and if you're a fan of espresso martinis, they had those available as well. The staff was great, overall would highly recommend if you're craving some Italian food while in Greece :)

    After having so many Turkish and Greek meals, we really wanted Italian and this hit the spot. Burrata and prosciutto for appetizer and then spinach Lasagna and chicken Marsala. Service was excellent and ver attentive by all employees.

    Service not great and one server in particular was sarcastic the entire time. It was a shame because the food was good and so was the setting. We would have gone back the next night if it wasn’t for the sarcasm. It was next to our hotel. Also when we booked we were asked if it was a special occasion and we said yes and shared what it was and they did nothing for it - didn’t even acknowledge it by saying anything.

    This traditional Italian eatery does what every Italian restaurant should do, use quality simple ingredients and blend them with perfection. Their namesake dish is an example, but check out the bruschetta or Caesar and you’ll agree. Leave room for dessert. The tiramisu and tartuffo are some of the best EVER.
