Time Out says
Etiler’s famous and stylish Italian restaurant Da Mario has been providing excellent service from inside its garden villa since 1993. One of the first Italian restaurants in the city, Da Mario was identified last year by the Financial Times newspaper in their special Turkish section, as the best restaurant in Istanbul. Home-made pastas, wood-fired pizzas and breads are among Da Mario’s best. Although the menu changes every couple of months, dishes you can always find include Arosto alla Siciliana and fish soup. Da Mario is also one of the first addresses thought of when considering venues to celebrate special occasions.
