Cipriani Istanbul is one of the best known, upscale Italian restaurants in the city and is a branch of the internationally renowned Cipriani restaurant chain. Stemming from the legendary ‘Harry’s Bar’ which was opened in Venice by Giuseppe Cirpriani in 1931, this branch is located in the plush Istanbul Edition hotel in Levent and has seating for 180 inside and a further 75 outside on the wide terrace space. The decor is refined and chic with crisp white, round tables, immaculately laid up in sparkling white tableware, with a splash of color from the single blue glass candle holder on each one. The smart bar area has a luxury yacht feel, surrounded by polished wood panelling with navy and white soft furnishings.
The menu is just as refined as the decor, featuring classic Italian dishes from Venice’s original Harry’s Bar and daily specials that change according to the availability of fresh products throughout the year. Cured meat, mediterranean vegetable and fresh seafood starters provide a prelude to authentic Italian salads, risottos and pastas such as the delicious Green Tagliatelle alla Amatriciana (traditional tomato sauce with cured pork cheek and pecorino cheese). The main courses offer touches of luxury, such as lobster and beef fillet dishes, among the meat and fish offerings, as well as homemade pizzas (with a choice of white or brown flour in the dough base) and exquisite Italian desserts including the Meringata alla Crema.
The full bar offers suitably lavish and sumptuous, classic cocktails and a list of fine wines to accompany your meal. Cipriani prides itself on its authentic Italian cuisine, distinguished venues and service all over the world and this branch is no exception. The price tag is in keeping with the upscale setting, but for a special occasion, luxury romantic meal or a business lunch or dinner to impress, this high class Italian restaurant won’t leave you disappointed.
