When we travel with my husband I am always in charge of finding that special place for a romantic dinner. This time I found this restaurant. It was not easy to get there specially because it was raining and we were walking. The place is nice, small but fine, with a nice view of the Hagya Sophia. To be honest... More

Seriously good Italian food cooked by an expert chef. We are vegetarians and we accepted our host's offer to select some dishes for us. A good decision.We enjoyed an excellent bottle of Anatolian Syrah and finished with a truly great tiramisu. While the terrace is a great location with a fascinating view of Istanbul the price of that view is... More

My friend read the reviews on this place. We were in the mood for italian. Went on May 30, got to see the kittens. Climbed up 3-4 sets of stairs. Worth the trip up for the sunset view. Also the Turkish version of the Blue Angels were flying in celebration of Turkish independence. Had the cheese ravioli and pasta carbonara.... More

Our guide insisted we visit this charming rooftop restaurant near the Hippodrome. The owner and chef is the third generation to live there and recently converted the top of his home to a restaurant after returning from a tour of cooking in Italy. He could not have been friendlier, and told great stories while breaking out magazines to illustrate his... More

Delicious food, such friendly service and in a beautiful setting. We ate here on our last night in Istanbul and definitely saved the best for last. The tiramisu was amazing!

My boyfriend and I should add 'drinking on rooftops' to our hobbies on our CV because we hunt them down whenever we go away. Nostra casa officially comes in our top 3 worldwide. Great service, even better homemade food, fab wine and a sunset view- ticks all the boxes! Plus if you go soon you will be accompanied by 4... More

After reading the great reviews for the Nostra Casa, we decided to give it a try as we are staying close by in the area. We arrived and was shown to our table high on a beautiful roof terrace over looking the beautiful sea around Istanbul, you could not ask for a better setting. We had a mixed selection of... More
