Awesome night!

We were a large group who arrived without a booking, and yet were made to feel like special guests! The view is fantastic, too.

Came here for the 4th time meanwhile with a collegue after having finished a business meeting. The restaurant is on the 3rd floor, with the rooftop terrace on the 4th. floor and it´s ambiente is different from what you would expect, but with an absolutely relaxed atmoshphere.

My friend and I found this place on TripAdvisor and decided to go the last evening of our stay to celebrate 4 weeks of backpacking around Eastern Europe. We were the only guests there and were shown to the rooftop terrace that somehow seems farther up and with a better view then the rest of Istanbul's rooftop terraces. The Italian... More

Our favourite place to eat at in Istanbul. We have spent many evenings at Casa Nostra in the fabulous company of Turgay, the owner, the chef and now a great friend. When one travels, you often wonder what is good on the menu and we normally struggle to decide. The best way to decide here is by letting Turgay know... More

I do not know what all the hype is about; whilst the owner/chef and all the staff are very friendly and helpful, the food is really not that great, not bad but just not great. Having lived in Italy for 3 years, we know good Italian food when we eat (and cook) it and this really did not live up... More

Turgay, was so kind to serve us, even not being fully ready for service. His food was the best we have had in all Istambul and his passionate spirit for life and cooking made us sit, eat and chat for hours!

This jewel has a wonderful rooftop terrace view - the perfect spot for watching the sun set on Istanbul. The chef/owner Turgay was a wonderful host who personalized our experience by sitting down with us and getting to know our preferences before recommending what to order. We are vegetarians and he made us a wonderful pasta meal with a variety... More

It was a great dinner in a family and cozy atmosphere. We were served delicious appettizers with red wine chosen by a chef. We had soft and juicy beef steak with basil pasta. For desserts we had the best tiramisu we have ever tasted. Whether you are looking for a romantic dinner place or just to enjoy your stay in... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
