Kadıköy's beloved Italian eatery Aida is one of those place that feels more like a home than a restaurant. Inside, you’ll be greeted by a piano and family portraits lined along the staircase before being served an authentic Italian meal on dinnerware that looks as if it came from your grandmother’s house. We start with the appetizer plate with fried rice balls in a bolognaise sauce, meatballs and fava bean crocchettes, which strikes us as an inventive way to serve fava beans by breading and frying them. The seafood and shrimp fettuccine is fresh and perfectly al dente. Aida also makes its own breads and ice cream, though our favorite treat was the tiramisu made with Quarta coffee imported from Italy.
