Il Vicino

Il Vicino provides a delightful taste of Italy in the heart of Antalya. Indulge in Italian classics, such as their notably thin and crunchy pizza topped with Parma ham. This charming restaurant offers a relaxed, tasteful atmosphere, making it an excellent choice for a casual lunch or a warming family dinner.


The Turkish cuisine — a wonderful mixture of simple nomadic foods, Byzantine luxury and fresh raw ingredients — is considered to be one of the best in the world. Turkish speciality is the small starters known as meze, together with grape-distilled rakı. Unlike the stuff you get abroad, a kebab is always meat cut into pieces or minced meat. Another minced meat course is köfte (meatballs) which, just like kebabs, are served in dedicated köfte restaurants. The most popular soup is iskembe. It is made of cow stomach and served with vinegar. Seafood is very popular on the Turkish Riviera, too.
