“For a break from Greek cuisine, go Italian(ish). Scuola ('school' in Italian) teaches the locals, especially the younger crowd, a thing or two about good cuisine. Its quirky interior comprises a classroom setting, complete with a blackboard and books. Pasta and pizza with Greek twists break all the rules.
