Cecconi's, Best Italian Cuisine

Cecconi's is a modern classical Italian restaurant of Venetian origin. The restaurant, which is located in Soho House, has branches in West Hollywood, Miami Beach, Brooklyn, Berlin, Barcelona. First of all we would like to mention that Soho House serves in its place but you do not have to be a member to eat here.
If you prefer an Italian restaurant in Istanbul that offers good quality and good food, Cecconi's will make you happy. The menu prepared by Alessio Biangini is really incredible, minimal and confident. If you are confused with the terms, ask for help immediately from the waitresses, they are very dominant and very good directors.
Before you go to lunch, each turn will be a cocktail prepared especially for you, we would definitely recommend you to try these things if you want to be satisfied. The cocktails on the menu are very nice, favorite strawberry daiquiri is 45 TL. The menu, full of northern Italian dishes, starts with a Venetian tradition called 'cicchetti'. It continues with delicious beginnings. In the main meals there are pizza, salad, meat, fish and chicken options.
