The restaurant is at a nice location and has a great closed yard. It is spacious, the food is very good and the service friendly. The pizzas are amazing and my favorite desert is the strawberry mille feuille.

Linguini vongole was insipid, with the clams not really vongole. Sea bass was good. Brulle was not up to notch. Neither was the bill value for money.

We visit this place with friends... Nice ambiance and decoration... But most like all restaurants in Turkey energy so tense and you are not feeling relax... We made a rez. for 5 people but they put us on a table for 4 person some of...us has to squeezed in the midle of two table? It shouldn't be like this in a such fine dinning restsurant. And when we said this they insisted that we can fit 5 people there? I mean they try to convience us... than finally we move nice table for 5 people can sit, eat and chat comfortably... so menu is ok. Not wow... stuff obviousley not experienced... Not smiley at all! This is the general attitude of restaurants in Turkey they are so serious and not smiley at all.. this creates such a tension... only realy realy good thing pâte fouette (milfoy) they are preaparing freshly at your table! no sugar only sweet fresh strawberry tase! Not easy to find this original quality of this special desert even in europe... Nice serving ceremony also but! the guy seems like open brain surgery! How you can be that much serious and tence while doing most sweetest and beautiful thing?.More

I love this restaurant! ❤️ Always great food, great service, great atmosphere! I would suggest the charcuterie plate as a starter with a special red wine and anything you choose meat, pasta, pizza, everything is very delicious! Don’t forget to take a bite from mille-feuille🙂

Went on a Sunday evening around 6, no reservation, no problem getting at table. It started filling up around 8 so probably good to have one then. Ambience is upscale/classy but pretty relaxed. Lots of wooden surfaces and big windows and mirrors. Second floor has...a balcony with a nice city view, but most seating is on the first floor. If you are a tourist you may have a hard time finding this place, it’s not on the main street, Nispetiye, but on the next one over. If your taxi doesn’t know where to go you could try telling them to go to Saray in Etiler and walk to the next street from there. Menu has each dish in English, Italian, and Turkish. Some reviews said it’s limited, but I thought it was pretty standard or more expansive than the typical Italian place. Prices pretty reasonable. Ordered a pizza, 2 soups, an appetizer, 4 pasta dishes, a schnitzel, 2 glasses of wine for ~650 TL, which at current exchange is like $140. The Margherita pizza was delicious, but not like what you’d expect, it was much more like a NY style pizza. Assuming that’s what you want (which why not, it’s the best kind :) crust nice and thin, sauce fresh, not much of it and cheese nicely browned with just enough grease, it was very well executed. Both soups were ver nice and fresh. All pasta dishes were very good, my favorite was the lasagna, even though it was quite large it was quite light and flavors all came out well. We had a table side prepared strawberry and cream layered dessert which was also nice, and much lighter than it seemed.More

Spagetti vongole is so delicious that i asked for the recipe. They have a pork starter one should not miss. The wine list is supeb, rich with a wide spectrum of Turkish. For desert, go with the chocolote blueberry. Reservation on weekends is a must.

They know h-what they are doing. You can only get the same taste in best restaurants in Italy itself. Excellent cook. Friendly and helpful personnel. Will be going there again.

I have been here twice. The pastas are delicious. The staff is polite. The desserts are very tasty. The only downside is the crowded atmosphere. The distance of the tables is fine but the waiter traffic becomes tiring. Maybe a corner table is the best...solution to avoid the speed. Other than this, it’s definitely a must.More

We have decided to try this restaurant by a recommendation of a friend and reserved a place for two a week before. What they have done is to cancel it 4 hours before our arrival without getting a confirmation as they could not reach me...when they called just for one time and 4 hours before our scheduled reservation timing.When I call them back to confirm that we are coming;they told me that there is no place left as you were unreachable. I still don’t understand how come they can give my table to another visitor 2-3 hours before my reservation timing. I wish they have given a more logical and customer oriented explanation. Don’t trust your reservation. They can cancel it anytime for other walk-in customers or for the other last minute reservation requests.More
