Perfect pizza spot

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.

I've just finished having my meal at this amazing place. A very cozy, homy feeling inside this shop It was bit hard to find it while it has no sign on it, yet the walk in the neighborhood is really tempting and BIG TIME worth it. We've tried 3 different types of pizza out of 20+ other kinds The service... More

Lovely pizzas, delicious calzone with nutella, tasty house wine... Very nice place to take a coffee break in daytime and causy bar ambience at nights. I celebrated my 30th birthday there and it was unforgettable and unique one for me thanks to 49 team!

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
