What adds to the level of comfort is Chef and Owner, Vassilios Holiasmenos’ take on authentic Italian cuisine with a modern twist. Vassilios is a culinary mastermind who is also responsible for Kolonaki Greek Kouzina and The Blockman. For Modena Italian Eatery though, he brings his passion for food and love for cooking to every dish that comes out of the kitchen. All pasta on the menu is homemade, while the true creativity and taste comes to the fore through seafood, meat and vegetarian dishes.
