Voted Nicosia’s best Italian Restaurant

If you are looking for the traditional Italian “trattoria” with authentic Italian dishes like the ones “la mamma” used to make, then Da Paolo restaurant is the place to visit. After 15 years, Da Paolo, with its high ceilings, exposed brick walls, traditional red checked table clothes and of course its traditional wood-pizza-oven, is still going strong.
