the restaurant was on top of a building in front of our hotel. So we went there 2 times for dinner. Really good food. Small place. The owner was also the chef and a character. Great place and evening. Not cheap for Turkish prices but we had a good time and we were on holidays so....

My fiancé and I arrived in Istanbul last night and, having had a very Turkish lunch today, we fancied Italian for dinner. We found this place via TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. In fact, it completely exceeded our expectations. The restaurant is easily missable from the outside, but once inside (and up quite a few flights of stairs) we were... More

We had a wonderful dinner here! The owner/chef was incredibly friendly and simply loves to feed people. None of us were planning to order soup, but he brought some to sample (a full bowl) and it was incredible. All of our dishes were excellent and the personal service continued with a bruschetta topping to try on the bread that we... More

The restaurant is not all that easily found. It is three flights up in what looks from outside to be a residential "brownstone." But, the food was very good, and Turgey (the restauranteur) was engaging and appropriately voluble. He had been born on the premises (as had his dad, as I recall) and moved to Italy for many years before... More

This is the second time my wife and I have eaten at Turgay's restaurant and both times have been excellent. Great location, delicious food and wine, and great company put this place ahead of the rest. Turgay makes you feel like you're been invited to dinner at his home, sharing a drink and many stories over the course of the... More

We stayed in Istanbul for 9 days, and after a few days of Turkish food we decided to eat here just to change it up. Hands down the best Italian food I have ever had. Nostra Casa is a great place. All of the negative reviews are because there are cats in the restaurant. But as the name suggests, this... More

The manager and chef was very welcoming and a great character (with some funky dance moves). Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Definitely will come again!
