“No surprise: good food, good service”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

The best Italian in town according to me (better than the Papermoon). Mezzaluna has a standard that it had succeeded to maintain over the years.
Do not expect a surprise (bad or good). You will get a quality Italian with a fairly wide selection of antipasti, salad, pizza, pasta and meats.
Serious and professional service.

“Upmarket good restaurant”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

I went to this restaurant as I was attending a convention nearby. I ordered the seafood spaghetti in tomato sauce which was excellent with fresh, well-cooked ingredients. The service was excellent & the premise impeccably kept. I have been to Juno which was nearby and the price here is more expensive than Juno. This is expected as Juno is located on basement level where the rent is cheaper. However, putting aside the price difference & the food quality, the atmosphere at Mezzaluna is more posh like the place where you would bring someone to impress whereas Juno is more intimate & friendly.

“Excellent food as always”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

This is my must have dinner every time I am in Istanbul. The food is excellent. The service is good. Outside sitting is good, just be careful of the smokers as it is legal to smoke in outside sitting area.

“Quality rather than quantity - Expensive by local standards but well worth the price”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Visited 29/03/2013 for dinner - 2 adults + 1 kid aged 13 - Went first to Juno nearby but was fully booked without a reservation (Friday evening!!!) - However here they serve a truly excellent Italian cuisine (we currently live in Munich, a place with many Italians, and go in Italy on a regular basis 3/4 times a year) - We had lasagna, pappardelle, salmon, profiterolles, millefoglie, Mövenpick ice cream, daiquiri, still water, 2 orange juice, ayran for a total of 195TL - Rather expensive by local standards - The kind of place to be seen with your lovely girlfriend/boyfriend - Highly recommended if you are ready to pay for the extra price (once again by local standards) - Highly recommended - CAUTION: This review is written by persons with strong continental European cuisine culture and might not be suited for people from other cuisine cultures especially Northern America, Asia, etc.
