A last minute reservation brought us here, we were very friendly welcomed in the beautiful structure. The antipasto of the house was excellent, the pappardelle al cinghiale really amazing, rich and extremely tasty. Wine of the house equally good, and excellent service. Very reasonably priced too. To be recommended very warmly!

Situated in the hills of the famous CIOCIARIA, the country guesthouse & restaurant IL CICLOPE of Arpino is one of the most known restaurants in the whole province of Frosinone. The typical homemade food and its personal country style makes this place very successful. The staff will make you feel part of the family and for this reason many of our guests meet every year at the CICLOPE. It's a place to relax, where you can take it easy, where animals and nature will surround you.A place to spend lovely weekends (even wedding weekends) with your whole family or just with a special person. Many activities are organized- just call or write!
