Ciacco, the latest addition to the culinary landscape of Protaras, has quickly captured public attention with its unique design and the frequent social media posts by its patrons showcasing their chosen dishes in imaginative ways. This authentic Italian eatery is the brainchild of the creators of the renowned Cypriot tavern “Vangelis.” Known for their credibility and years of experience in the hospitality sector, they have introduced a new concept to the area, focusing on three key elements: pizza, pasta, and cocktails. The restaurant’s name, Ciacco, is inspired by a character from Dante’s “Inferno,” known for his gluttony.

The Ambiance

Ciacco boasts a spacious, open veranda featuring a mix of high and low tables, primarily made of wood and metal, adding an exotic touch to the atmosphere. Additionally, the impressive bar serves a range of signature and classic cocktails, as well as other alcoholic beverages.

The Menu

The menu, curated by Chef Floros Kyriakou, who brings years of experience from Italian restaurants in England, includes antipasti, six appetizers, five refreshing salads with Mediterranean flair, selections of ravioli, risotto, and seven main Italian dishes with hints of local Cypriot ingredients like kolokasi (taro).

A specially-imported wood-fired oven from Italy bakes ten different types of handmade, authentic Neapolitan pizza, offering vegetarian options as well. Classics like the Margherita, the cheesy Quatro Formaggi, the spicy Diavola, the refined Portobellini Florentine, and the innovative Cipriota are served alongside eleven different pasta dishes.

The Experience

This new Protaras establishment promises a unique, infernal taste experience of authentic Italian cuisine. It’s a place where you can enjoy a pleasant dinner, and as the kitchen closes at 23:00, the music’s volume increases, transforming the space into a lively bar serving divine and other drinks until 01:00.

Signature Cocktails

  • Negroni Variations: Classic, Bianco, Rosa, and Bergamotto.
  • Spritz Varieties: Aperol Spritz, Amaretto Spritz, Limoncino Spritz, and the beloved Hugo.
