I read about this restaurant on a blog and I can´t regret my visit. The food was absolutely amazing and I think I had one of my best pizzas ever. The environment is very cosy and the staff is friendly.

This place has one of the best pizza in town. Besides, the location is quite unique in the border of cukurcuma and cihangir.

An amazing place in Beyoglu. The first time we just went for mezze, which was nice. An extraordinary band played and it turned out to be quite a magic evening, even though we had dropped in quite late. Since the food seemed so good, we went back to get a real taste. Unbelievably, three staff remembered us, down to the... More

A very cool restaurant hidden down the back streets serving a good breakfast selection - not a budget place but worth a little splash-out

Service is not the best, but their pizza margherita is worth the praising. The atmosphere is also a plus.

Based on TA's comments, we found the place hidden out behind Istiklal pedestrian road. It was packed full but we got a small table quickly enough to keep us hungry. The pizzas are thin and crispy, with a twist of Turkey (try out the Tulumi one), the house wine is very correct. We had a very nice evening in a... More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
