“good food. over priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

was there for a trip . Food was good but over priced and small portions :(
the location is very nice. We were excited to eat there as a friend of us recommended it.
The service was not bad but not too friendly . they were very stiff.

“Terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

This has really gone down the tubes. It used be average/acceptable food quality, very expensive, but had nice atmosphere. Well the atmosphere is still here with lots of pretty people, but the rest is gone much worse. I started with prosciutto and mozzarella. I've had better tasting tofu to the mozzarella served. The 4 thin measly slices of ham were covered in thick balsamic sauce, I presume to cover their awfulness. Next was steak Robespierre, the best that could be said about it was that it was tender - as in tenderized. Totally tasteless. The other diners at my table did not fare any better. Prices are ridiculous, moreso when you put the extremely poor quality in perspective. On the (only) positive side, the espresso was good.

“Very expensive to be seen”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

Very nice to place, good location and nice meal, the place to be seen but quite expensive for some basic italian food. Worth to go there but more for the ambiance than the food itself.

“An Italian Classic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Nice atmosphere, good food and a very high bill.... You may be able to see the some part of the Istanbul Jetset in this restaurant which is under the Ak Merkez Shopping Mall in Etiler.

“Hip Italian in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Very expensive - very trendy - very good food & wine . Best place for see and to be seen . Although it seems that the location is one of the malls in Istanbul, they have a separate enterance . The bar is also trendy, you can try the cocktails and have snack food at the bar as well.
