Much more than a meal!

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... read 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!

Omg!! Succulent food!! Everything I tasted in this restaurant was amazing! The Manager who's also the chef first offered us vegetable soup, which was really good, just enough spicy (perfectly made), we then had the pasta with porcini mushrooms, and tortellini alla Quattro fromaggie. Both dishes were really exquisite, I highly recommend them!!! Also, the music was really nice, very... More

If you like to eat while several cats pass trough your legs or jump over the tables, you're in the right place. Never seen before, something so far from italian style. We eat only an antipasto paying as a complete dinner. About 30,00 € each. Probably in summer time it could be better, being possible to stay outdoor.

I had a very good and special dinner at Nostra Casa in this summer 2014. Everything in this place is perfect: the meal, the view of old town, the owner ot the house very kind and friendly; the music. I love this place! Lucia Moreira

My wife and I decided to find an alternative to the local cuisine durning a 5 day break in Istanbul and after searching the web decided to try some real Italian food at the Nostra Casa. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is easier to find than previous recommendations suggest, over the road from the Albatross Hotel, down the bank... More

We expected a nice italian restaurant and we were at the beginning excited by the warm welcome. But then the food...the starters selection was merely ok due to the fact it was free of charge. The mains were horrible and plain weird (one steak and one fresh Salmon platter). They have absolutely no skill in cooking meat and the fish... More
