Sometimes management need to step outside the restaurant and have a look at their business from the outside. First we only found this place by using google maps, secondly we had to actually walk up to the door to make sure it was a restaurant and the one we were looking for! No menu outside, so had to ask for... More

We went there on a saturday night. The kitchen closes at 22.30... You have to pay at 23.00... They had none of the wines on the menu. The waiter who dealt with us had good intentions. But wasn't enough. When we left, he closed the restaurant by himself. Nobody else was left... Considering the amount that we paid, this was... More

From the terrible mozzarella that tastes like a napkin to the pasta that looks bad and tastes worse, passing through the pizza that seems to have ketchup instead of tomato sauce and closing finally with a tiramisu that probably didn't ever see an egg, my experience was awful.

Lasagne was served on the plate, not in the saucepan. Pizza was thin and delicious. I so much enjoyed the well concentrated cappucino not getting cold easily. The black closet in the toilet was...

I went in Flb in Istanbul this summer, with a group of italian friends. We ate a really nice pizza, as an italian one and moreover we sampled some italian dishes, they were all very good! The waiters were also very kind and the local was tidy and snug.

It used to be one of the best Italian restaurants of the city. But since the Italian ch.cook left, I would say it does not really worth anymore. For what it costs I can have a much better alternative.
