There is a restaurant called Zebra. It is well known for serving meat on skewers and are cut off in front of you and then put on your plate. They will do meze styles for you.

Zebra restaurant serves African dishes so this might not be of your choice. For Italian you can try La Pasteria (in Griva Digeni Avenue)($$), Cos´ altro in Makariou Avenue($$), il Forno in Ledra street($) or Vivere in Holiday Inn hotel($$$). For local dishes there are several restaurants if you know the area and need for a few indications, just ask.

For the local cuisine you can try Aigaio (tel. 22433297), Loxandra's (tel. 22675757) and Kath'Odon (tel. 22661656) which have Greek dishes too.

Agios Georgios (tel. 22765971) has genuine, homemade food and it's frequented mostly by Cypriots, though the restaurant is nothing to write home about. Shantris (tel. 22671549) offers good, honest food at very reasonable prices.

Harrisalk's suggestions are all good but I'd avoid visiting La Pasteria in the evening as some of its dishes, though tasty, are a bit on the heavy side.

It's better if you make a reservation, especially on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays when most places in Nicosia fill up.

When you arrive, or if you have a Cyprus Tourism Organisation office near you, you can ask for a copy of the Time Out Eating Out Guide for more places.

Let me know if you need directions or any other information.
