One of our favorite pizzas at It’s Greek to Me in Tacoma, just around the corner from Southern Kitchen, is their large vegetarian pizza . . . with real bacon and extra mushrooms.
When we are going to a family party or dinner, we often order two large pizzas to take with us to share. Why buy smalls?
It’s Greek to Me resembles a gas station complete with overhead door, which is great to have in the spring and summer. Not so much in the fall and winter. In good weather you can choose to “take away,” dine in, or dine outside. The restaurant is very casual, but the food is not. The lamb kabobs are excellent and not very expensive. They have great meat sandwiches as well as veggie sandwiches. Their menu is surprising. Moussaka (eggplant with ground sirloin is one of my favorites) along with spanakopita (spinach and Feta cheese pies) . . . are so tasty, but then so is the spaghetti (Monday Special: spaghetti and meatballs all you can eat). It’s a great little restaurant in a plain wrapper of white and blue like the Greek flag.
The friendly staff is easy to work with. They help and assist whenever they can. Hidden from view of most patrons is their private dining area. The room will hold about two dozen people comfortably. We’ve had events their with over thirty but that was a little tight.
We use the dining area for birthdays. We order pizzas and tell the staff when we want them ready. Once set up we usually have the room to ourselves (about six people).
I like the decor of the private dining room. There are faux ancient Greek wall paintings around the room. In the main dining area, two large screen TV monitors play videos about Greece.
Our second favorite pizza is the “Roma.” Pepperoni, mushrooms, black olives, and sausage is a great combination. This is the best seller at the restaurant. Greek cheese, no . . . 100% Wisconsin pizza cheese, but you can add anything else you want for just $3 each . . . on the large pizza. I’m always happy to eat left-over pizza straight out of the fridge. Left-over pizza, however is a rarity. – itsgreektomerestaurant.com
