“Amazing Place”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

This restaurant is one of the best I have ever frequented. We went to the restaurant on Kyrgyz Independence day last year in a large group of 12 of us all the food came out at the same time it was all amazing and have to say that it's in my top 10 Italians I've ever tried.

“Good wine, food, service, outdoor patio”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

A favorite of mine in Bishkek. Tree lined street. Italian cafe. What's not to like? That they don't accept Master card. Visa only w PIN number.

My spinach ravioli was good. Superb dry white wine. Pass on the milkshake. No ice cream in it. Ok banana split. Caesar salads not perfect but very good.

Comfortable seating. English menus. Very pleasant staff.

“Good location and decor, so-so everything else”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

Situated on Chuy Avenue; Cyclone is rather touch and go, although rather pretty and comfortable. The veranda seating 30 is spacious enough and stylish. Service is poor to average and food is passable. Overall it is generally and okay place if you happened to be passing by otherwise you'll not be missing out on much. What helps is that the waitresses speak some English but don't expect them to go the extra mile.

“Nice terrace, awful food”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

The restaurant has a nice terrace, right next to the sidewalk of one of the busiest streets in Bishkek. But the food was absolutely awful. We ordered a pizza and a pasta (vegatable fettucini), but after 15 minutes the waitress came back to tell us they didn't have pizza??? So we changed the pizza for a breaded veal steak with ham and cheese and cauliflower in cheese sauce. The fettucini was absolutely tasteless (no seasoning) and the sauce of cream and melted cheese was disgusting. The cauliflower was totally tasteless as well. Just boiled cauliflower with half melted cheese qon top. The only thing remotely edible was the breaded veal cutlet, but this wasn't great either. I don't understand how this place managed to get some good reviews. Was the cook sick yesterday?

Good location, but food was so-so. Pizza wasn't great at all. For that sort of quality a bit overpriced. Nice and quiet place in the city center.
