Great pizza

Amazing salad to start - don't miss it! I had no. 10 and it was gorgeous but my partner had pepperoni pizza and it wasn't very nice. I wonder if the pepperoni wasn't made from pig perhaps?? Anyway wonderful fast service so would heartily recommend.

I am in love with the decoration of the place. Cosy place for confidences with my girl friends but also for a couple if you are not looking for something fancy. As it is quite small, maybe to avoid if you are a big group. Good pizza and good house wine. Service discrete but effective, English speakers.

Absolutely tasty pizza with lots of cheese. 100% comfort food. Friendly and fast service. As a dessert we had some delicious almond ricotta pie. House wine could have had a deeper taste to better accompany the herby homemade tomato sauce. Starters are a bit uninspired - how about some anti pasti?

Located in the heart of Istanbul's antiques neighborhood, leave Istiklal and stop off at this great pizzeria and breakfast place. Superb pizza, service, dessert, ambience and reasonable prices will bring you back and back again. Had a great time!

One of the best pizzas I've ever had - and that's a lot to say, being nearly 60 years old! Some pizzas have a nice Turkish touch (had one of them), others are international.

This cosy restaurant is a few blocks off the frantic Istiklal street, serving fantastic pizza and a chance to catch your breath. Perfect.

A small place where we used to have breakfast. The choice is good even though not very large, the atmosphere is special and great. The quality of the food is nice - the turkis breakfast and the pizza are recommended.

We eat here a couple of times while in Istanbul, partly has it was round the corner from our apartment, mainly due to the fantastic rustic pizza, chilled vibe, funky antique decor and really great service, all at decent price. Just a short 5 minute walk off the main shopping street, Istiklal Caddesi. you won't be disappointed.

Dropped in for a quite late breakfast. It is a nice, very clean family place. Feels like home. The food is good.The green olives from Bozcaada were the very best I have ever tasted! It is a perfect place for a lonely breakfast as well as for a pizza for lunch or dinner with friends.
