actually that's all: fair price, good food, good music, cosy decor and friendly service are what 49 Çukurcuma is. that can not be explained with words, you should go and live it. it's relieving. one of my favorites in Istanbul. I visit several times in a month, every time i find the same and the best service. the price performance... More

My wife, sister and myself spent a week in Istanbul and our apartment was within 50 meters of 49 Cukerama and as it turned out, we ate there 3 times. Our turkish dinners were hit and miss and nothing really stood out to us and we really did not want to come all the way to Turkey to eat pizza,... More

On our first day in the city, we went here for a light dinner. 2 of us shared a pizza and a salad and it was more than enough food. The design of the restaurant is really cool and unique. Ask for the English menu if they dont give it to you at first. The food was fantastic and the... More

As profound pizza fan I was truly lucky to find out about this place. All my friends concurred: best pizza of the year. Bit pricey for Isthiklal standards so you see a lot of expats and tourists

With an abundance of excellent breakfast joints around Cukurcuma and Cihangir, this place is not really a contender. My husband's Bozcaada Kahvaltisi was just so-so... the criminal oversight of no bal-kaymak is unforgivable. My bacon (REAL) and mozarella yumurta was better (did I mention the bacon was real?!). It was like a pizza, cooked in a wood-burning oven. Service was... More

One Sunday afternoon my friends musicians invited me to Cukurcuma 49. I was lucky enough to get there, to have a good lunch and to have fun! I had three glasses of red wine and a hearty pork ham pizza, which is rare for Istanbul. The atmosphere there was very relaxing, the food and wine were fine and the prices... More

Staying in Istanbul for a week and have already visited this little restaurant twice - once for lunch and once for dinner. With 24hrs to go we may yet make a third call. The pizza is really excellent with thin crisp crusts and very tasty toppings. I particularly reconmend the tulumi pizza with salty cheese from Izmir. For vegetarians like... More
