AllMusic Review by

Those seeking a souvenir of the film will be pleased by the lively mix of traditional Greek tunes, all rich in atmosphere, but the real treasures here are the original score tracks by Chris Wilson and Alexander Janko. Evocative of the film's Greek flavor on tracks such as "Yasoo" and "Yiayia," Wilson and Janko's compositions manage to retain their own flavor as they reflect the film's emotional landscape. From the delicate piano passages of "Generations" and "First Date" to the guitar-fueled "Toula and Ian," the tracks have a low-key appeal and warmth that makes for pleasant background music. Fans of David Schwartz's original music from the television show Northern Exposure as well as fans of Rachel Portman's comedy scores may want to check this out.
