After eating lamb and eggplant for almost two weeks, I needed a break from the wonderful Turkish cuisine. We spotted this restaurant in passing and were attracted by the decor and menu. Our expectations were not disappointed: the four of us had a lovely meal with a good selection of wine. The food is made from fresh ingredients and put together with care and originality. Probably the only caution is to listen very closely to the description of the daily specials, as we ended up having a good laugh when the "pear soup" turned out to be "pea soup"! Service was friendly and charming, and we will be back for another helping.

If you want to try the real Italian kitchen in Istanbul, the number one address is Da Vittorio. The food is excellent, the atmoshpere is very good, and the location is very convinient. Vittorio is great with all of his customers, makes everthing more Italian. It's an ideal place for business lunch or a special dinner..Don't miss the salmon gravlax, which is my favorite..

If you are looking for real authentic Italian food in Istanbul... look no further! The chef is from Italy! This Italian Bistro was by far our best meal in Istanbul! The ambiance, the service and the food was top notch! And the wine list was quite vast!

We had the fresh cod as an appetizer and it was succulent and packed with flavour. My husband had the traditional lasagna and I had the pasta with seafood... and all was magnificent. Please do not skip out on desserts...you need to try the homemade cheesecake and Napaleon! YUM-O!

I would go back in a heartbeat!

Da Vittorio has the best Italian food in Istanbul and according to the owner there is only one other Authentic Italian Restaurant in the city. My partner and I arrived here around 10:30 pm after a previously horrible dinner just around the block. The place was buzzing and didn't start slowing down until 1am. The owner was gregarious and gracious, serving us wine at the bar, and taking our order once at the table. We talked about our common ties to New York, where he had a restaurant in the 80's?, and a little bit about our trip to Istanbul. All the food and wine was delicious. I ordered shell pasta in red sauce dish (all the small shells were made by the chef's hand and very fresh) and a puff pastry and tiramisu for dessert. I had heard Da Vittorio's tiramisu was the best in town. The atmosphere was lovely and the dress was business/casual to dressy. The energy was good here and everyone was enjoying themselves.
