Turkey is a very nice man and a great Italian/Turkish chef. He will welcome you to the house of his father and grandfather and, after climbing many stairs, show you to his beautiful rooftop. The food is outstanding and the ambiance is perfect. I will try and return soon.

Stayed quite close to this restaurant and decided to try Italian food in Istanbul for a change. It was a steep climb up 4 stories but when we reached the top, the view was breathtaking. Owner greeted us warmly and chose a lovely red wine for us. He also chose to serve us delicious broccoli soup and four different appetizers.... More

The owner's love for Italy shines through the food he cooks. A nice break from kebab and the like. Make sure you come in time for the sunset.

Nostra Casa is a magical rooftop garden where you can lose yourself over great food and great company. Chef, owner, and host and multi-talented man extraordinaire, Turgai, is one of the warmest people you will meet. There are 4 flights of stairs to climb before you get to this rooftop paradise but I assure you it is well worth it... More

Unbelievably good. Phenomenal terrace. An engaging and warm owner. Fantastic italian food. They even took great care of my spouse whose stomach was roiled by some street corn we think. Brought her ginger tea unasked and recommended mild pastas. Appetizer sampler and porcini pasta were delicious, simple but perfectly seasoned and prepared. We are headed back to Istanbul in a...

Tremendous view of the Bosphorus and Blue Mosque on roof-top terrace. We don't normally like Italian outside of Italy, but this was excellent. Echo previous comments that appetizers are tremendous! Very affordable given the quality of food and location. Owner, host, and cook is all-in-one and lots of fun!

Brought here on recommendation by an acquaintance. Lots of cats around but they don't bother people. The place is basically home cooked food which was tasty. The appetisers were awesome. The pastas were hit and miss. I enjoyed mine but both my friends said theirs were not fantastic. Great view on the rooftop terrace and the owner was really friendly.... More
