My husband and I met our friend for dinner here. The pizzas were delicious and the house wine named Desperate House Wine was exquisite. The prices were high but it's good value considering the quality of the food and wine. The only thing I didn't like was the service. Service people could definitely be a little more friendly.

The place looks cool but it is not worth the money. We had pizza's: not very taste, hardly any toppings but still very expensive. Same thing for the the wine: not very good but still pricey.

Not any"wow" for this place. Oil smelly all over. Food came quick but over done. Music to loud .Service inferior to so many other place we ate in Istanbul. We could not pay by card (don't know why, we could not get it from the waiter not speaking at all english ). No wi fi.

They have very good quality wine from bozcaada which is famous for its wines. There is always good jazz music is playing background while you are enjoying your perfect thin pizza... Just the area on the way to the restaurant is quite unsafe at night time...

Off the beaten path in an area of art galleries and coffee houses. Brick oven pizzas on excellent crust with many imaginative topping combinations to pick from. The service was friendly and good and the ambience was cool.

Neighborhood Profile
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
