Da Mario - Istanbul - Opinions?
Yes I know, why go to an Italian restaurant in Istanbul when you have lots of local options but I have been invited. Has anybody been there lately? What did you think?
So I had dinner there last week. This is a classic Italian restaurant with all the classic dishes (antipasti, soups, pasta including home made fresh, pizzas, and main courses). I had a mushroom soup with sole, fresh gnocchi with gorgonzola, and chocolate souffle. It was all tasty and well executed. The service was good. The wine list is a bit short but fine. The prices are correct for the quality. The restaurant itself is comfortable. So if you want to have good classic Italian food, go for it. It's the best Italian I have had in Istanbul so far.I intend to go back.
