“Home Italian food in Istanbul”
Reviewed September 15, 2010

One of the best, if not the best, pizzas in Istanbul!

Baked in the oven. Pastas and risottos are very good too. Tiramisu here is to kill for. Cozy outdoor area. Another hall in the basement.

The restaurant run by a family, one of the owner is always there to greet you and get feedback later. Gets crowded for lunch. Sunday is the day off.

Whether family event or business meeting, you will be not disappointed.

Wine list is a bit on the short side, there is no big choice of wines. Wines from supermarket: local Turkish and table wines from Chile, Argentina... Nothing special :((

If you prefer your pasts "aldente", inform waiter when ordering. (Locals in Istanbul eat pasts boiled to soft).

Good service.

Highly recommended for pizza lovers!
