Corvino is located in Kuzguncuk, a secluded and historic multi-culti neighborhood of Istanbul, where one can visit the local mosque, synagogue, orthodox church, armenian church. The restaurant is in the very center of Kuzguncuk, where there is a shopping alley with cobble-stone pavements surrounded by historic wooden buildings. Very many famous Turkish TV series are being shot in this neighborhood due to its authentic Ottoman atmosphere.
Probably due to this multi-culti habitat, the owners decided to add more spice and recently opened up this Italian restaurant at a renovated building, which fits perfectly to its surroundings. Corvino, meaning raven in Italian, fits well as one of the meanings of the neighborhood Kuzguncuk also refers to raven.
This is a bistro-style joint with about 10 tables inside. They also have 4-5 little tables right outside in the shopping alley (good for some espresso machiato).
And the food: what a wonderfully delicious stream of Italian classics coupled with explicit creativity!
From soups, primi, secondo, to dolce (dont miss the cannoli - and guess what the little red pearls are) you'll be touring through Italy at multi-culti Kuzguncuk and be amazed at the dedication and love they hide in this new joint.
We'll be back!
