Atiye Sokak No. 3, Nişantaşı, Istanbul

For mantı (Turkish-style ravioli) with an Italian twist, don’t miss Casita, which serves their mantı in a variety of different styles including in a rich pesto sauce with five types of cheese, and their signature dish ‘Feraye’, in which the mantı are fried and topped with a tomato and garlic yoghurt sauce. If you can’t decide, the tasting plate is highly recommended. There are also some interesting meat dishes. The food is delicious and hearty but you probably won’t have room for dessert.

There are also branches in Bebek, Etiler as well as other areas in Istanbul, and in Bodrum.
