We received a tip on this little gem from our tour guide. Wow. You climb up several flights of the home to the terrace where the view is gorgeous. We watched the sunset while having a phenomenal meal. The owner and staff are lovely. It's very small so you may need a reservation, we were lucky and got the last... More

What a great experience! Where could we ever have Italian food to match our experience when we were in Italy? We found it here on a rooftop in Turkey overlooking the Sea of Marmara and the Blue Mosque, and hearing the call to prayer from the local mosques. Our chef was born here in Turkey, spent 21yrs in Italy and... More

We stumbled upon Nostra Casa while looking for the perfect sundowner spot! We found it!!! Awesome views of the ocean and the blue mosque and delicious Turkish wine! The rooftop terrace lets you soak up the vibrance of Istanbul. The friendly hospitality is the cherry on top! :-)

The food was delicious, plus Turgay offered us... More

Delicious food with an amazing roof top view of the Bosphorus and some great historic sites. Best food hands down because of the greatest chef and an awesome guy Turgay. Highly recommended!

It is truly a dining experience, not just a meal, and it's one I wont quickly... More

One of the most memorable dining experiences I have ever had. Turgay is not only an incredible host but a genius in the kitchen. I never ate so good and felt more welcome. It was almost like being home. Every dish he turned out was more delicious than the previous. We dined like royalty for many hours and all in... More

Walked in for some Italian food and roof top terrace. What a nice surprise and friendly service. The owners do their utmost to make you feel comfortable and entertained. On top of that some nice wines and Italian style food. Nice!
