Scala Vinoteca Review
The latest brainchild of renown Greek chef Christoforos Peskias, this urban wine-restaurant divides its menu into four main price ranges, with dishes priced at 7, 10, 12 and 17 euros—the result is a flexible and budget-friendly dining option. Delicious dishes include asparagus in Mastello (sweet Santorini wine) sauce, beef tartare with marinated swedes, ravioli with shrimp and crab in a bisque seafood sauce, or the lasagna bolognese with foie gras. More than 110 wine labels are on offer, while most of the wines are also served by the glass. The chic, downtown location is a hidden Athenian gem, an additional bonus being that the warm, wooden, minimalist interiors have been designed by New Benaki Museum architects Maria Kokkinou and Andreas Kourkoulas.
