Ah, the charming Cacio e Pepe in Paralimni – a gem that captures the essence of Italy on the sunny island of Cyprus. My first tryst with their delightful Italian fare was at a friend’s place in Paralimni. The crispy pizza and al dente handmade pasta were so memorable, I just had to find out where these culinary marvels originated. Unsurprisingly, they were the creations of Chef Antonis Attouni, whose talents in crafting unforgettable flavors I’ve admired for years.

This quaint eatery, with its focus on Delivery & Take Away due to limited seating, offers a clear, well-structured menu that immediately whets your appetite. Their array of classic Italian and gourmet salads, paninis, pizzas, handmade pastas, and calzones, accompanied by Italian wine, is a treat. Not to miss are their signature dishes: the namesake Cacio e Pepe with handmade casarecce, pecorino cheese, and black pepper, and the Spaghetti Carbonara with egg yolk and crispy pancetta – both a journey to Rome in a bite.

A notable feature of Cacio e Pepe is the option to choose your pasta type for each recipe, allowing for a personalized dining experience. The Pecorina pizza, with goat cheese, pancetta, onion, and basil, and its white counterpart (a tomato sauce-free version with mozzarella, Parmesan, prosciutto, and crispy arugula) are must-tries. The thin crust, perfectly balanced toppings, and masterful baking create a harmonious blend of flavors. And for the ultimate indulgence, the sweet pizza with chocolate praline, crumbled biscuit, strawberries, and bananas is a sinful delight.

Surprisingly affordable, the average cost of their hearty, handmade pastas and pizzas is around €8, making Cacio e Pepe a top choice for value-for-money Italian dining in Cyprus. Located at Protara 2, Paralimni, across Ayia Anna Church, the restaurant is open from 12:30 PM to 11:00 PM, offering lunch, dinner, and drinks.

Customers rave about their authentic, Napoli-style pizzas and freshly made, delicious shrimp pasta. With quick service and a lovely atmosphere, it’s a perfect stop for pizza and pasta lovers. The charming setting, amazing food, fast service, and reasonable prices make it a highly recommended Italian restaurant in Paralimni. Even their takeaway service receives high praise for prompt, friendly service and incredibly tasty food.
