A review of Aria, the new Greek restaurant in Swarthmore

November 20, 2009

I had a chance to visit Aria, the new Greek restaurant that’s opened up in town. You would think that a college town would have a few quaint places to eat, but for the most part it really hasn’t. This surprising lack made it feel good to find a place I can walk to and enjoy.
