We visited da paolo yesterday night. The atmosphere was warm and cozy. The service and food was very good. They serve one of the best pizzas in Nicosia. The only minus is the chairs which are not very comfy.

This restaurant has been around for years and last night I visited it for the first time. I had the highest expectations but I was really disappointed. We ordered the frutti di mare spaghetti, the da paolo pizza, the truffle and prawn risottos. The risottos were more of a pilau rather than a risotto. Tasteless, not well cooked, felt like... More

This was our third visit, after two previous average experiences at this restaurant... after three tries, I think this was the last time. The setting is great, and the actual old stone restaurant building itself very beautiful and quite romantic. On this occasion we sat across the road from the restaurant where they have a seating area atop the 16th... More

Da Paolo is a typical Italian trattoria. Simple menu, includes antipasti, salads, pastas, pizzas and some main courses. Food is delicious, particularly pizzas, which are the best have tried in Cyprus (Picante is my personal favorite). Service is prompt and prices are excellent for what you take. Love the summer patio cross the road.

No matter how many times we tried the food from this place (either for dine-in or take away/delivery) it is always at the same excellent quality. If you are a pizza fan you have to try the "da paolo" pizza!! Really nice pasta as well. Very romantic in the summer where you can sit outside by the walls of Nicosia!

A good place to enjoy Italian food. Nice and friendly environment. However, the portions are quite small and pretty expensive.

I know this place has lots of fans but in my opinion is not even close to become a true Italian restaurant (don't get me wrong, yes it serves pasta and pizza but in a Cypriot/Italian way). If you visit it during summer, the atmosphere is quite nice. Other than that nothing special.

Right on the city walls , away from the crowds pleasant cool ambience in the cool summer nights of Nicosia. Linen table cloths etc but that's not enough. Food was not really what we expected, overcooked, and prices were unbelievably high for a simple yet charming eatery away from the tourist area. . Prices were high for what they delivered.... More

Nice cozy place, with tables outside during Summer, delicious italian food, probably one of the best Italian restaurants in Nicosia. Just one observation, the maitre has to be more friendly and smile now and then...

Centrally spotted, overlooking the venetian walls. Service is excellent. The environment is nice and cosy, and the checkered tablecloths remind you of typical italian restaurants; in summer you can also sit outside which is very nice. The menu has plenty dishes to choose from; starters were all very nice, especially the broccoli with fresh cream; the salad was rather small.... More
