Score: 98

Craving pizza and pasta? How about a gyro or spanakopita?

You can find them all in the same place!

Rome2Greece on Hughes Rd. in Madison is helping you get that Mediterranean fix.

Owner John Yenigun has put hard work and countless hours into the decor and food, picking up fresh produce from the grocery store every morning.

Comforting Italian dishes like scrumptious house pizza with multiple toppings shares the menu with authentic Greek dishes like a gyro plate with refreshing greek salad.

Don't forget to finish it off with sweets like tiramisu and baklava.

Since opening in May, Rome2Greece already has regular customers who understandably keep coming back for more.
